Truck accidents are unfortunately all too common on Ontario roads. 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, an accident can result in collisions with several vehicles causing many injuries, frequently severe ones. Every year the Greater Toronto Area sees truck accidents resulting from speeding, tire blowouts, driver fatigue, distracted driving, intoxication, poor road conditions, truck overload, dangerous cargo, and mechanical failure. The victims of these accidents suffer serious and potentially life-altering injuries including broken bones, torn ligaments, soft tissue tears, whiplash, concussion, spinal cord trauma, and many other debilitating injuries.
Ontario’s “no-fault” insurance system allows all injured parties in an accident to seek compensation and/or accident benefits, regardless of who was at fault. If you have been involved in a truck accident, you need help managing the challenges you are now facing including getting access proper medical care, navigating the legal system, and earning the compensation that you are entitled to. You need to speak with an experienced lawyer backed by the right personal injury team as soon as possible.
