Glace Bay Truck Accident Lawyer


Communities across the country rely on the operators of large commercial vehicles to deliver essential products, goods, and supplies. Truck drivers provide an essential service. However, oftentimes, in order to meet the difficult demands of their job’s responsibilities, truck drivers may feel the need to engage in behaviours behind the wheel that may be unlawful and unsafe.

Truck drivers are not exempt from the provincial legislation requiring all motor vehicle operators to proceed with caution while driving on the province’s roads and highway. In fact, like all drivers, the operators of large commercial trucks have a legal responsibility to comply with traffic laws. If a truck driver violates a traffic law and an accident with another vehicle occurs as a result, the at-fault truck driver may be considered negligent.

In order to try meeting difficult delivery deadlines, truck drivers may neglect their sleep and operate their vehicles while exhausted or fatigued. They may also use stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances to try staying awake for unhealthy periods of time. Furthermore, they may feel the need to speed excessively, ignore traffic signs or signals, improperly change lanes, or otherwise engage in unsafe driving habits. Trucks drivers who operate their vehicles recklessly, under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, or while physically exhausted may be considered negligent should their criminal behaviour cause a collision with another vehicle.

Additionally, while operating their vehicles for long stretches of time, truck drivers may also indulge a number of different distractions. Texting while driving, eating while their vehicle is in motion, and other distractions could steal a driver’s focus from the road could lead to fatal collisions with unsuspecting, law-abiding vehicle occupants.

Since trucks largely outweigh the smaller passenger vehicles with which they share the road, if a collision occurs, passenger vehicle occupants often lose their lives. Those who survive a collision with a large commercial truck often sustain severe injuries that deeply affect their overall quality of life. The wrongful conduct of a commercial truck operator could cause accident victims to endure lengthy periods of hospitalization, lose their mobility and independence, develop disabling mental health conditions, and incur substantial financial losses.

If you were injured in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver, our truck accident lawyers serving Glace Bay may be able to provide you with crucial legal assistance and advice. Depending on the circumstances of your collision, our Glace Bay truck accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue compensation from the at-fault driver whose negligence caused your collision, as well as the company or entity that employed them.

Similarly, if a driver employed by a trucking company develops a pattern of reckless or unsafe driving, appropriate interventions should be made to ensure that they do not put any more road-users at risk. If a trucking company continues to employ drivers with a history of unsafe driving habits, they may be liable for damages resulting from accidents caused by their negligent behaviour.
