Truro Truck Accident Lawyer


Commercial truck drivers have demanding, difficult jobs. In order to meet delivery deadlines or comply with their assigned schedules, they are frequently required to travel for hours on end, often neglecting their physical health and well-being in the process. Truck drivers often adopt unsafe behaviours behind the wheel as a result. Unfortunately, by doing so, they put themselves and other road-users at risk of being injured or killed in preventable collisions.

Truck drivers often operate their vehicles while fatigued or while they are physically exhausted. To try staying awake and alert for long periods of time, truck drivers may use amphetamines, stimulants, or other substances that may impede their ability to safely operate their vehicles.

In addition to driving their large commercial vehicles past the point of exhaustion, truck drivers could endanger the lives of other road-users by engaging in a number of different distractions behind the wheel. It is not uncommon for truck drivers to eat full meals while their vehicles are in motion, use their cellular devices, or indulge in other distracting behaviour that steals their attention from the road. Even a momentary distraction can lead to a severe, fatal accident with another vehicle.

Furthermore, truck drivers who have tight delivery schedules to fulfill may engage in reckless behaviours on the road. Speeding excessively, ignoring traffic signs or signals, changing lanes improperly, and other reckless, unlawful conduct can cause unsuspecting road-users to lose their lives or sustain severe injuries.

Because trucks so significantly outweigh regular passenger vehicles, a truck driver involved in a collision with another car may be able to walk away from the accident with no noticeable injuries. However, the occupants of the passenger vehicle could easily lose their lives, or sustain a host of injuries ranging from mild to catastrophic. 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

If a negligent truck driver’s wrongful conduct behind the wheel caused a collision in which you sustained injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. If you are eligible, our truck accident lawyers serving Truro may be able to help you recover compensation from the at-fault truck driver. Additionally, depending on the circumstances of your accident, our Truro truck accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue a claim against the company that employed the negligent driver.

In fact, the negligence of trucking companies often contributes to the circumstances leading up to injurious collisions. For example, if a trucking company knows a driver they employ has a history of unsafe driving but keeps sending them out on the road, they could be considered negligent when that driver causes an accident. Furthermore, if a trucking company assigns their employee an impossible delivery schedule requiring them to drive for unhealthy stretches of time without adequate sleep, if the driver’s fatigue causes a collision, their employer may be considered negligent, as well.
