Truck Accidents Lawyers


A larger vehicle often results in more damages to property and personal injury.

Driver fatigue is an issue with respect to transport truck drivers. The government has implemented maximum driving times, but often there are ways that companies and drivers get around these rules.

Regardless of whether the truck was the at-fault party in a collision, when a large truck collides with a small passenger vehicle the consequences can be catastrophic.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents are impaired drivers, sleep deprivation, speed, following too closely, and lack of attention to the blind spot.

If you are in an accident, make sure to get to an area of safety (when possible), call the police and seek medical attention, take note of the accident scene, and record details and contact information for all parties and witnesses.
When in an accident, be aware that:

  • If you are the truck driver, you need to confirm if workers compensation applies
  • If you are the driver of the small vehicle, confirm if the truck has valid insurance and that they truck driver is properly licensed
  • These are all things that can be confirmed with the assistance of the police

You may be entitled to financial and medical compensation, depending on the circumstances of your case. If you want to make a claim, ensure that you are attending all prescribed treatment sessions, following all medical advice, reporting all symptoms and concerns to your physician, and contact a lawyer.

Your compensation can be provided in two ways:

  • If the accident is your fault, you may be entitled to Accident Benefits coverage for medical expenses
  • If the accident was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of income, general damages for pain and suffering, rehabilitation, and other Accident Benefits
