Madawaska County Truck Accident Lawyer


It is not uncommon to see large commercial trucks on the roads of Madawaska County. Logging trucks in particular can be regularly seen driving in and out of the area, hauling massive loads of timber and other industry-related materials. The drivers of these outsize vehicles owe a duty of care to other drivers with whom they share the region’s roads and highways. A failure to reasonably provide that duty of care to other road-users could lead to severe collisions.

However,  truck accidents are frequently the result of a driver shirking their duty of care. When truck drivers feel the need to sacrifice their safe driving habits and physical well-being to fulfill tight delivery schedules, their negligent behaviour could have devastating impacts on unsuspecting drivers and their families.

In Madawaska County, collisions caused by truck drivers are often the result of wrongful conduct on the road. Some common examples of negligence behind the wheel that could lead to injury-causing collisions include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Drug use (including stimulants and amphetamines)
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Eating while the truck is in motion
  • Texting while driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Improper lane changes
  • Reckless driving
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • And more

Owing to their sheer size and weight, when trucks collide with smaller passenger vehicles, the accident can cause substantial property damage, severe physical injuries, and fatalities. Oftentimes, truck drivers involved in collisions with smaller vehicles can walk away from their accident without a scratch. However, the victims of their negligence may be left with life-altering injuries, and may even lose their lives as a result of their collision with a commercial truck.

Depending on the severity of their injuries, survivors of truck accidents may lose their mobility and their ability to live independently. When injuries sustained in truck collisions make it impossible for accident victims to continue fulfilling the obligations of their jobs, they may face financial uncertainty in addition to physical trauma. The experience of adjusting to life with debilitating injuries can be an overwhelming and isolating one. Injured truck accident survivors often acquire additional disabilities in the form of severe mental health issues as a result of coping with the physical injuries they have sustained.

If you were injured in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver, our truck accident lawyers serving Madawaska County may be able to provide you with crucial legal assistance and advice. If eligible, our Madawaska County truck accident lawyers may be able to help you file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and, in some cases, against the company that employed them.

Companies that employ negligent truck drivers may be liable for damages resulting from accidents they have caused. These companies may be considered negligent if they were aware the at-fault driver had a history of unsafe driving but took no action to remove them from their staff. Similarly, if the company that employed the at-fault truck driver assigned a delivery schedule requiring them to operate their truck to the point of physical exhaustion, the company’s contributory negligence could make them responsible for damages incurred by people injured because of their wrongful conduct.
