Truck Accident Lawyers
There are many types of large commercial trucks traveling Ontario’s roadways including transport trucks (18 wheelers), package delivery trucks, garbage trucks, dump trucks, farm equipment and construction equipment. The large number of commercial trucks on our roads and highways means there is a greater likelihood that these vehicles will be involved in collisions. Trucks are significantly larger than other vehicles; their greater momentum, combined with a more complex structure and function, makes it more difficult for drivers to stop their trucks in response to an emergency situation on the road.
Unfortunately, accidents involving these oversized vehicles often have a more severe effect than accidents involving only passenger vehicles
If you have been involved in an accident with a commercial truck, you need the help of experienced truck accident lawyers. A truck accident often involves different issues than a regular car accident and can be much more complex. The mechanics involved in determining who was at fault for the accident will differ when the accident involves a large vehicle with different brakes and operating systems than a passenger vehicle. Often the repair and upkeep of the truck is not the responsibility of the driver, but of the owner of the commercial vehicle, which involves adding another person or corporation as a party to any resulting litigation. The damage caused by commercial vehicles is often greater than that caused in other accidents, so there may be more at stake.
