Accidents involving large transportation trucks and delivery vehicles are common and frequently very serious. The size of the vehicles alone makes accidents involving these vehicles very serious and frequently deadly.
Most truck accidents occur on highways and at higher speeds. As with other types of vehicles, the causes of serious truck accidents include driver fatigue, distracted driving and mechanical issues. Serious truck accidents can involve complex investigations and engineering evidence. Most commercial transport trucks are now equipped with recorders (“black boxes”) that provide evidence about what the driver was doing and how the vehicle was responding just before the collision. Also, truck accident claims can be more complex because trucks are often on Ontario roads but are registered in other Provinces or in the United States. It is important in these cases to hire a lawyer who is experienced in dealing with complex claims arising from trucking accidents.
