Truck Accident Lawyers Toronto, ON

The Toronto truck accident lawyers at our firm fully investigate the causes of a truck accident for our injured clients. Sometimes the cause of a car-truck accident is obvious, such as when a truck rear-ends a car. There are other causes that are particular to trucks (and truckers) themselves.

  • 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers
  • semis
  • garbage trucks
  • dump trucks
  • other commercial trucks

What Do We Investigate?

We have extensive knowledge of the complex legislation for both interprovincial and interprovincial motor carriers.  Ontario truck accident cases are often won by proving that the truck driver and trucking company operated their trucks in violation of the trucking laws.

Some of the things we investigate include:

  • Fatigued, sleepy, or tired drivers driving too many hours without rest–there are logbooks to review
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Running off the road
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe safety systems, reflectors, lights, and other warning devices
  • Overloaded Truck
  • Oversized Truck
  • Improperly trained truck driver
  • Inexperienced truck driver
  • Poorly maintained brakes on the Truck
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving in conditions of poor visibility due to smoke, fog, snow or rain
  • Poorly maintained  or installed tires
  • Speeding
  • Wide turns
  • Blind spots
  • And more

The serious injuries resulting from truck accidents are serious and often fatal.  Cases involving death give rise to a wrongful death lawsuit.

Are Ontario Truckers Insured?

Our Toronto truck accident lawyers also fully understand issues relating to trucking company insurance companies to obtain the best settlement for you. Trucking companies, whether they are running semi-trailers, gravel trucks, garbage trucks, or dump trucks, are well insured.  Their policy limits are generally much higher than regular cars.  For more information about trucking safety, have a look at the MTO’s Truck safety guide.

What Our Clients Say

“I was in an accident in 2019, I was very hesitant about calling a lawyer and wasn’t sure if I should call one in my situation.
Auger Hollingsworth assured me right away that I was in good hands, first they spoke to me over the phone to get more details and then set up a convenient time and location for my husband and I to meet them, They greeted me at the front door and explained everything in simple terms from then one they kept in contact with me through every process via email and phone. Never missed a beat through the whole process, never made me feel bad or pressured and even helped with providers when needed. I highly recommend them and so thankful their service at this place.”
