Port Hawkesbury Truck Accident Lawyer

Spending long hours behind the wheel, going days on end with little or no sleep, the drivers of large commercial trucks face a number of challenges each day they perform their job. The essential service they provide communities across the country comes with its share of frustrations. In order to meet the strict delivery deadlines and other demands of their job, truck drivers may feel the need to engage in risky, potentially dangerous behaviour on the road.

Anyone who operates a vehicle on the roads and highways throughout the province are required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution and obey local traffic laws so as to avoid potentially fatal or injurious collisions with other vehicles. These rules apply to the drivers of commercial trucks as well. If a truck driver violates the rules of the roads, even for the briefest of moments, their negligence could have devastating consequences.

Common examples of truck driver negligence that could result in a collision with another road-users include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, and other drugs
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating while driving
  • Improper lane changes
  • Ignoring traffic signs or signals
  • And more

Since trucks so vastly outweigh regularly sized passenger vehicles, as the result of a collision, the occupants of passenger vehicles can lose their lives, or sustain catastrophic, permanent injuries that profoundly affect their overall quality of life.

Some injuries that are frequently sustained by accident victims as the result of a collision caused by a negligent truck driver 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
