Truck accidents may be devastating for everyone involved. If a large transport vehicle is part of a collision, many smaller cars can be hit. The damage can be severe. Filing a legal claim following a car accident is a frustrating process at the best of times; when several cars are involved, it can be maddening. This burden is often too much for people experiencing the pain of trucking accident injuries.
At Clonfero Law Firm, our truck accident lawyers help Toronto residents and their families to secure the support they need. We are committed to helping injured people restore peace of mind. This means that even if their lives are changed by devastating physical or emotional trauma, they will have access to the right medical care and financial resources they need to see them through one of the most difficult periods of their lives.
Knowing The Causes Of Truck Accidents
Commercial vehicles, such as 18-wheelers that carry heavy cargo and semitrucks, are involved in accidents for a variety of reasons. Whether an injured person is making a claim through no-fault Ontario insurance benefits or filing a lawsuit alleging negligence, the details of the collision are important. Physical evidence must be gathered quickly and witness statements recorded as soon as possible.
When we represent a truck accident victim, we take steps to investigate what happened. We find the root causes of truck accidents can include:
- Driver error
- Driver fatigue
- Poor road conditions
- Truck overload, heavy or dangerous cargo
- Driver intoxication
For the injured person, what exactly happened may be of less concern than receiving assurances that his or her future is secure. At Clonfero Law Firm, we always keep this objective front of mind. While we work diligently to prepare the strongest possible case for our clients, we are careful to always remain in close contact with our clients so they know the status of their case.
