Shelburne Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck accidents in the Shelburne area can be disastrous. Oftentimes, collisions in the region caused by negligent truck drivers cause property damage, environmental catastrophe, severe injuries, and fatalities.

The people who drive large commercial trucks provide an essential service and do so under less than ideal circumstances. The conditions of a truck driver’s job can be physically uncomfortable, isolating, and overwhelmingly stressful. In order to meet the demands of their job, truck drivers may feel the need to adopt unsafe driving habits or engage in irresponsible behaviour on the road. If this unsafe conduct leads to an injurious accident, the at-fault truck driver may be considered negligent. Common examples of truck driver negligence that result in injury-causing collisions include:

  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances
  • Lack of sleep
  • Driving while fatigued or exhausted
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating while the truck is in motion
  • Excessive speeding
  • Improper lane changes
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • And more

When the wrongful conduct of a truck driver causes a collision with a smaller passenger vehicle, its driver and passengers could sustain severe, even catastrophic injuries. These injuries 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

Throughout the province, the operators of all motor vehicles– including trucks– are legally obligated to fulfill a duty of care to other road-users. If a truck driver’s failure to uphold their obligation to other road-users causes an unsuspecting accident victim to sustain injuries in a collision, the negligent truck driver may be responsible for financially compensating the injured parties.

If you were involved in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Our truck accident lawyers serving Shelburne may be able to work with you to help you recover damages you have incurred as a result of the injuries you sustained in your truck accident. These damages might include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
