Halifax Truck Accident Lawyer


We rely on large commercial vehicles to deliver goods and supplies to and from all areas of the country and across the border. No matter the cargo they are hauling, truck drivers provide an essential service to manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, and customers. All too often, the working conditions of truck drivers go unappreciated. Many operators of commercial vehicles spend long hours behind the wheel, struggle to meet tight delivery deadlines, and sacrifice both proper nutrition and sleep to make sure our goods are received on time.

In order to keep up with the demands and deadlines of their job, truck drivers may find themselves practicing unsafe behaviours on the road. Combined with the sheer size and weight of the vehicles they operate, wrongful conduct behind the wheel can cause severe, fatal accidents.

Truck accidents in the Halifax area are often the result of driver negligence, including:

  • 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

When a truck driver’s negligence leads to a collision with another vehicle, the results can be catastrophic. Given the sheer size, weight, and power of large transport trucks, passenger vehicles involved in collisions with them frequently sustain irreparable damage. The operators and passengers of those vehicles can easily lose their lives in a truck accident. They can also sustain severe, permanent, and debilitating injuries.

If you were involved in a truck accident and suffered injuries as a result, our Halifax truck accident lawyers may be able to offer you critical legal assistance.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our truck accident lawyers in Halifax have a history of engaging in the thorough investigative work involved in truck accident claims. Unlike other motor vehicle collisions, multiple defendants are often named in truck accident injury claims. While 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 Halifax know that, in many cases, determining liability can be much more complex.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the employer of a negligent truck driver may also be liable for damages resulting from a truck accident. If you have been injured in a truck accident and are eligible to file a lawsuit for financial losses you have sustained as a result, our truck accident lawyers serving Halifax may be able to recover past driver performance reports, driving records, previous complaints about negligent behaviour, and other evidence about the driver’s track record. If a trucking company was aware that the driver they employed had a history of negligent behaviour behind the wheel but kept them on their staff, our Halifax truck accident lawyers may also be able to prove that their negligence contributed to the circumstances that caused your accident. Similarly, if the delivery schedule created by a trucking company required their employee to drive to the point of exhaustion, they may be found partially liable for accidents caused by their driver’s unsafe condition behind the wheel.
