Our Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Clients in Commercial Trucking Accidents
Many times, commercial trucking accidents can be fatal. Accidents that would otherwise be considered minor, could result in serious, if not tragic injuries due to the sheer size of these trucks. For this reason, it is the responsibility of the truck driver to ensure their vehicle is up to standard and they possess the capability of driving these vehicles for long periods. At Grover Law Firm, we understand that major issues involving commercial trucks can impact your physical, psychological, and financial state when you are driving alongside them on the road. If you have been injured due to a truck accident, our personal injury lawyers can assist you.
The Most Common Causes Behind Commercial Trucking Accidents
The following are some of the many causes of commercial trucking accidents:
- A fatigued driver
- Driving while distracted
- An intoxicated driver
- A driver following behind other vehicles too closely
- Unsecured cargo or load
- Driving at high speeds
- Passing other vehicles unsafely
- Cargo that is overweight
- Inadequate maintenance of the truck
- Taking dangerously wide turns
- Drifting in and out lanes
- Tire blowouts
- Incorrect and unsafe parking on the side of the road
How The Trucking Industry Affects Your Claim
In Canada, the trucking industry is extremely regulated. A driver is required to log their maintenance, when they sleep, take brakes, pick up cargo, and any issues they encounter while on the road. Random drug testing is also performed on drivers and all drivers must main up-to-date licenses. If in the event of an accident, a substantial amount of evidence can be used to support your personal injury claim. However, without the assistance of a personal injury firm, it can be difficult for an injured party looking to file such a claim to examine all this material on their own. Whether you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, hiring a lawyer that has an in-depth understanding of the rules, regulations, and protocols that govern the trucking industry is imperative. Our lawyers are well aware of what evidence to look for so you can receive the maximum compensation you’re entitled to.
