The effects of a collision with a transport vehicle such as a tractor-trailer, semi-truck or 18-wheeler can be particularly devastating. Because of the size and weight of these vehicles, many cars may be involved and injuries are frequently severe. Unfortunately, truck accidents are all too common. Each year Ontarians are involved in truck accidents resulting from speeding, tire blowouts, driver fatigue or inattention (from texting or emailing while driving), or intoxication, poor road conditions, truck overload, dangerous cargo, mechanical failure, and other causes. Victims suffer serious and potentially life-altering injuries including spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and amputated limbs, and lingering neck and back pain. In addition to their physical injuries, victims are often left feeling overwhelmed and struggling to engage with family, friends and co-workers.
