Toronto Truck Accident Lawyers
Heavy haul trucks are by far some of the most difficult vehicles to operate. Their large size and mass lead to numerous safety hazards, including bad brakes and large blind spots. These safety hazards only worsen when the bitter Canadian winter comes and the already limited traction of the road decreases even further. Trucks are very accident prone and when a truck accident occurs it is almost always devastating for everyone involved.
At Mazin & Associates, PC, our experienced Toronto truck accident lawyers understand the necessity for heavy haul trucks to deliver goods across the country. However, when employer negligence or truck driver error leads to a preventable accident, we believe those who suffer deserve just compensation. Contact our office at (416) 625-2122 to learn more about how we can help your legal case.
Leading Causes of Truck Accidents
Due to the difficulty of operating a large truck, drivers and heavy haul transportation companies need to always make safety their top priority. Even the slightest hiccup in communication or planning can lead to serious injury or death for the truck driver and other drivers on the road. Truck accidents occur for various reasons, many of which are preventable if the necessary safety procedures are taken. Some of the leading causes of truck accidents include:
- Drunk Driving
- Mechanical Defect or Malfunction
- Employer Negligence or Liability
- Truck Driver Error and Negligence
- No-Zone Accidents
- Wrongful Death
Any of these leading causes can create catastrophic accidents, often requiring emergency medical services. Accidents that occur as the result of negligence on the part of the trucker or trucking agency are unacceptable.
