Tracadie-Sheila Truck Accident Lawyer


When large commercial trucks are involved in collisions on the roads and highways in and around Tracadie-Sheila, the results can be devastating. Far heavier and much larger than regular passenger vehicles, trucks that collide with smaller cars can cause property damage, injuries, and in some cases, fatalities. Owing to the outsize weight and magnitude of their vehicles, truck drivers who are involved in collisions may be able to walk away from the accident scene with only minor or negligible injuries. But the same accident could leave their victims suffering from permanent, catastrophic injuries.

Common examples of injuries acquired 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

Frequently, injurious truck accidents are the result of their drivers’ negligence. In order to fulfill the duties of their job, truck drivers often adopt unsafe behaviours behind the wheel. To meet their delivery schedules, truck drivers often feel the need to sacrifice sleep, nutrition, and safe driving habits. Even though all motor vehicle operators in the province are required by law to exercise reasonable caution on the road and obey traffic laws at all times, truck drivers racing to complete their deliveries may neglect to fulfill the duty of care they owe to other road-users. When truck drivers fail to uphold this duty of care by violating any number of traffic laws, they may be considered negligent.

Common examples of truck driver negligence that frequently leads to injurious collisions with other road-users include:

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

Negligent truck drivers whose wrongful conduct causes serious collisions may be responsible for financially compensating the people injured because of their actions. Furthermore, depending on the circumstances of the accident, the company that hired the at-fault truck driver may also be considered negligent. If so, they may also be liable for damages incurred by injured accident survivors.

In truck accident claims, contributory negligence can occur if the people who employed the negligent truck driver knew about their history of unsafe driving but decided to retain them on their staff. It can also occur if a trucking company creates a delivery schedule for its driver that is impossible to fulfill without indulging in unsafe behaviours, such as driving without sleep.

If you were involved in a collision with a large commercial vehicle and sustained injuries as a result, our truck accident lawyers serving Tracadie-Sheila may be able to help you recover financial compensation for damages you have incurred or will incur in the future.
