Wolfville Truck Accident Lawyer


Truck drivers connect communities across the country, performing an essential service to countless Canadians. But truck drivers are required to meet the demands of their job in uncomfortable and, occasionally, unsafe circumstances.

To meet tight delivery schedules, truck drivers often need to spend hours on the road, often sacrificing sleep or driving past the point of physical exhaustion to reach their destination on time. To stay awake and alert for hours on end, truck drivers may rely on stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances. Doing so could put the lives of other road-users at risk.

Furthermore, truck drivers racing towards their destinations could feel the need to speed excessively, ignore traffic signs or signals, change lanes improperly, or engage in other forms of recklessness behind the wheel. On top of that, burdened with long periods of solitude, truck drivers may indulge in a variety of distractions behind the wheel, such as texting and driving, eating while the car is in motion, or any other activity that steals their attention from the road.

When truck drivers violate the rules of the road and shirk the duty of care they are legally required to provide to other road-users, the occupants of other vehicles could lose their lives in a collision, or sustain severe, often disabling injuries. Injuries that frequently occur during an accident caused by a negligent commercial truck operator 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

Due to the differences in size and weight between large commercial trucks and regularly-sized passenger vehicles, the injuries sustained by truck accident victims are often severe, and can impact all areas of an accident survivor’s life. Injured truck accident victims may sustain permanent physical injuries, develop debilitating mental health issues, and incur substantial financial losses.

If you were injured in a collision caused by a truck driver’s negligence, truck accident lawyers serving Wolfville may be able to help you pursue a civil claim in order to recover compensation for damages you have incurred. Depending on the circumstances of your collision, our Wolfville truck accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue legal action against both the at-fault truck driver whose negligence caused your injurious accident as well as the trucking company that employed them.
