Dieppe Truck Accident Lawyer


Sacrificing sleep, neglecting proper nutrition, pushing themselves to make tight delivery deadlines, the operators of commercial transport trucks work extremely hard to carry goods and products across the country and over the border. There is no doubt that truck drivers provide an essential service by transporting cargo great distances. Unfortunately, though, when these essential service-providers fail to operate their vehicles in a safe manner, they put the safety of other road-users in jeopardy.

If a passenger vehicle is involved in a collision with a large transport truck, lives can be lost, property can be destroyed, and severe injuries can be sustained. Because commercial trucks significantly outweigh standard passenger vehicles, an accident that may not cause much damage to the truck has the potential to seriously impact the other driver and any passengers that may be in their car.

When truck accidents occur, they are often the result of driver negligence. Examples of negligent behaviours that could lead to serious collisions with other vehicles include:

  • Driver fatigue and exhaustion
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Distracted driving, including eating while driving
  • Speeding, and reckless driving
  • Improper lane changes
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Driving aggressively
  • Other violations of provincial traffic laws

If you were involved in a collision with a commercial transport truck and sustained injuries as a result, you may be able to recover financial compensation through no-fault, Section B insurance benefits. However, depending on the severity of the accident and your newly acquired medical condition, these benefits may not provide adequate compensation. In these cases, our Dieppe truck accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party or parties responsible for your injuries.

Oftentimes, unlike other lawsuits arising from motor vehicle accidents, multiple defendants may be named in truck accident injury claims. Even though it may initially appear as though the negligent behaviour of a truck’s driver was the sole cause of the accident, our truck accident lawyers serving Dieppe understand the complexities involved in determining liability in a truck accident. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, our Dieppe truck accident lawyers may be able to pursue financial compensation on your behalf from multiple parties.

In many cases, the employer of a negligent truck driver may also be liable for damages resulting from a collision they caused. By thoroughly investigating your claim, our Dieppe truck accident lawyers may also be able to present evidence proving that the negligence of the at-fault driver’s employer contributed to the conditions that led to your collisions.

If a trucking company knew that the driver they employed had a history of unsafe behaviour on the road but failed to terminate their employment, the company could be considered partially liable for collisions caused by the driver’s negligence. Additionally, if a trucking company assigned their driver an impossible delivery schedule requiring them to drive to the brink of exhaustion, they could be held responsible for an accident caused by their employee’s unsafe physical condition.
