Yarmouth Truck Accident Lawyer


When truck accidents occur on the highways and roads in and around Yarmouth, the consequences can be fatal. Since large commercial trucks so greatly outweigh even larger passenger vehicles, if a truck is involved in a collision with a smaller car, its driver may be able to walk away from the accident without sustaining any injuries. However, because of their vehicles’ inherent discrepancies in size and weight, the occupants of a passenger vehicle struck by a commercial truck could lose their lives, or sustain severe injuries.

The rules of the road apply to the operators of all motor vehicles, including commercial trucks. Despite the fact that a truck driver’s job has rigorous demands, requiring them to cover large distances in short periods of time, it is incumbent upon them to abide by local traffic laws and exercise a reasonable degree of caution behind the wheel. By doing so, truck drivers may reduce the risk of causing other unsuspecting road-users to sustain injuries.

However, in order to fulfill the duties of their job, truck drivers may feel the need to adopt unsafe habits on the road. If their violations of traffic laws cause a collision with another vehicle, at-fault truck drivers may be considered negligent, and therefore, liable for damages incurred by injured truck accident victims.

Common examples of truck driver negligence that often causes 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

If a truck driver’s negligent behaviour caused a collision in which you sustained compensable injuries, our truck accident lawyers serving Yarmouth may be able to provide you with assistance. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim, our Yarmouth truck accident lawyers may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred as a result of your collision. Depending on the circumstances of your collision, our truck accident lawyers serving Yarmouth may be able to help you pursue financial compensation from the at-fault truck driver whose negligence caused your collision and from the company that employed them, as well.

In certain situations, a trucking company may also be considered negligent if the wrongful actions of its leadership contributed to the conditions that caused the collision to occur.  For example, if a trucking company’s administrators were aware that their driver had a history of unsafe behaviour on the road but continued to keep deploying them for duty, they may be liable for damages incurred by the injured victims of accidents caused by their negligent employee.

Our Yarmouth truck accident lawyers understand the complexities involved in determining liability in truck accident claims. Through robust investigation, our truck accident lawyers serving Yarmouth may be able to present evidence proving that the negligence of the at-fault driver’s employer contributed to the conditions that led to your collisions. This evidence may include:

  • Past performance reports
  • Driving records
  • Previous complaints about negligent behaviour
  • Delivery schedules
  • Other evidence about the driver’s track record
