New Waterford Truck Accident Lawyer

Collisions involving large commercial trucks often have fatal consequences. Trucks far outweigh regular passenger vehicles and are significantly larger in stature. Because of this, if a truck collides with a car, the person hired to drive it may be able to walk away without any injuries, while the car’s occupants could lose their lives.

Those who are fortunate enough to survive a traumatic collision with a large truck often sustain a number of different injuries of varying degrees of severity. These injuries could impact all areas of an accident victim’s life, and may require extensive medical treatments, lifestyle adjustments, and other necessary expenses. Injuries sustained in truck accidents often include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • And more

Many truck accidents are the result of their driver’s negligence. In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, the operators of all motor vehicles– including trucks– are required by law to fulfill a duty of care to other drivers by operating their vehicles in a reasonably cautious manner and complying with traffic laws. If the failure to do so results in an injury-causing accident, the at-fault driver who engaged in wrongful conduct could be considered negligent.

To fulfill the duties of their job, truck drivers might adopt unsafe behaviours behind the wheel. They may feel the need to speed excessively, ignore traffic signs or signals, improperly change lanes, or engage in other forms of unsafe driving in order to reach their destinations on time. Furthermore, truck drivers may feel pressured to go for long stretches of time without sleep, causing them to operate their trucks past the point of physical exhaustion. To try staying awake and alert, truck drivers could use stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances, all of which could constitute negligence if their behaviour causes a collision.

If you were injured in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Our truck accident lawyers serving New Waterford may be able to help you pursue a civil claim for damages you incurred as a result of the injuries you sustained in your collision. By doing so, our New Waterford truck accident lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation from both the at-fault driver and, depending on the circumstances of the case, against the company that employed them.

In certain situations, a trucking company may also be considered negligent if the wrongful actions of its leadership contributed to the conditions that caused the collision to occur.  For example, if a trucking company’s administrators were aware that their driver had a history of unsafe behaviour on the road but continued to keep deploying them for duty, they may be liable for damages incurred by the injured victims of accidents caused by their negligent employee.
