You may have to file a claim against the company instead of the truck driver if they are employed by the company. It will be more difficult to find evidence to sue the trucking company if the driver is an independent contractor. Our lawyers will examine your situation to determine who is liable for your injuries.

In Alberta, there is a general 2-year period to file a claim for personal injury actions. You will not be able to make a claim if you don’t file a lawsuit with the Court within two years from the date you realized that someone is responsible for your injuries.

Assess your health and safety along with others that are involved, and seek immediate medical attention. Then contact the police to provide all the information you can remember to document the accident. Please take images of the scene before clearing the road if your vehicle is blocking traffic. Obtain information from the truck driver, including their name, phone number, driver’s license number, insurance company, policy number, home address, and details of the company. If there are witnesses, ensure you obtain their contact information. Ensure you see a doctor even if you feel fine to identify any injuries.

“Damages” are the compensation you are entitled to receiving after the accident. Compensation includes medical expenses, medications, pain and suffering, and treatments and therapies. A settlement payout could include lost earning capacity, property damages, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
