Do I Have a Truck Accident Case?

Not every truck accident requires a lawsuit, especially if it is minor. But if you or a loved one were hurt in a truck accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim to recover compensation for your losses.

Negligence in truck accident cases revolves around the truck driver’s failure to act reasonably. Negligence could mean the driver is breaking traffic laws by speeding, driving distracted or impaired, or driving fatigued. The truck driver’s employer can also be negligent by hiring unqualified drivers, inadequately training drivers, or failing to enforce break times and other driver regulations.

How Long Do I Have to File a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Ontario?

The Ontario Limitations Act imposes a time limit of two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If you wait too long and the statute of limitations expires, your case may be dismissed, and you’ll be unable to collect any compensation.

What Compensation Can I Get After a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, your vehicle might be totaled, and your injuries may prevent you from working — but your expenses will continue to pile up. That’s why it’s crucial to act quickly to give yourself the best chance of recovering the compensation you need.

Your past and future damages should be included in the value of your claim. After a truck accident, you may be entitled to:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages or loss of earning potential
  • Damages for pain and suffering
  • Property damage expenses

The exact value of your claim is affected by several factors, such as the severity of your injuries and how they negatively impact your life. Your truck accident lawyer can work with you to determine the value of your claim and answer any questions you may have about the process.

Ontario Truck Accident Liability

Truck drivers are typically represented by their employers in accident cases, and proving liability for a truck accident can be complicated, especially when multiple parties are at fault. Since trucks have so many parts and bear massive weight, they are more susceptible to mechanical failures than other vehicles. If a mechanical issue occurs and factors into the crash, the manufacturer of the parts can be held liable in addition to the trucking company.

Cargo loaders or manufacturers can also be held liable if the truck’s load was improperly secured. Your truck accident lawyer will thoroughly investigate your case to find all the liable parties and work to hold them accountable.
