Shediac Truck Accident Lawyer


Truck drivers have demanding jobs. They carry essential goods, products, materials, and supplies to communities across the nation and are often required to travel long distances in short periods of time. In order to meet the demands of their job, truck drivers may feel the need to modify their behaviour on the road in ways that could be unsafe for themselves and for other road-users.

If the drivers of large commercial trucks engage in negligent conduct on the roads and highways in and around Shediac, serious accidents with fatal consequences can occur. Most truck accidents are entirely preventable. When a truck driver neglects the duty of care they are legally required to provide all other road-users, their negligence could have deadly consequences for unsuspecting drivers, passengers, and others on the road.

Examples of truck driver negligence that frequently lead to injury-causing collisions include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating while driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Improper lane changes
  • And more

Owing to their massive structures and outsize weights, trucks that are involved in collisions often do more damage than they sustain. When a large commercial truck strikes a smaller vehicle, its driver may not sustain any noticeable injuries. However, the occupants of the passenger vehicle could lose their lives, or sustain a number of severe injuries. Often, the injuries resulting from truck accidents 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

When collisions are the result of a truck driver’s negligence, the at-fault driver may be responsible for financially compensating the injured victims of the accident. Additionally, if it can be proven that the company that employed the at-fault driver was contributorily negligent, they may also be responsible for providing accident victims with financial compensation for the injuries they sustained in a collision caused by the company’s negligent employee.
