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. Add to this the fact that truck drivers are often over-worked, over-tired, and not as focused on the road as they should be. Whether it is the truck itself, the quality of the roads, or the behavior of the trucker, if you’ve been injured in a truck accident, it is very likely that others are at fault. If others have caused your truck accident, there’s no reason you should be left dealing with the pain, suffering, and long-term difficulties of that accident on your own.
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. If you or someone you care about has been harmed in a truck accident, you don’t have to face the consequences alone. Contact our office at (416) 625-2122 to learn more about how we can help your legal case.
Why You Need a Lawyer to Help with your Truck Accident Case
After a truck accident, you are likely dealing with very significant injuries. You may be in pain and have great difficulty getting back to work. These difficulties make it hard to focus on getting the compensation you deserve by filing a potential case against the truck driver, their trucking company, and/or the insurance company. In order to pursue legal action, you’ll also likely be expected to have an excellent understanding of the law and the ability to bring together evidence and expert testimony to prove fault. There is no reason to go through this alone.

Leading Causes of Truck Accidents
To understand your case, you’ll first need to understand what happened and why. 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: Many truck drivers will drink while on the road. Others will engage in drug use, either with an effort to stay awake and aware, or just for recreational fun. In either case, those drivers are putting others on the road at risk.
- Mechanical Defect or Malfunction: Many trucks are not properly and regularly inspected, allowing for bad parts to get installed or for the truck to malfunction unexpectedly.
- Employer Negligence or Liability: The trucking company has a responsibility to make sure their drivers are responsible and well-trained. They also have a responsibility to make sure their trucks are in proper operating condition.
- Truck Driver Error and Negligence: Unfortunately, many truck accidents occur simply because the driver is not driving safely. They may be speeding, switching lanes without taking the right precautions, or simply not paying attention.
- No-Zone Accidents: No-zones are the areas that are difficult for the truck driver to see, including directly in front, behind, and to the sides of the truck. If the driver doesn’t put the effort into monitoring these areas, they can accidentally hit other vehicles while turning or switching lanes.
- Wrongful Death: When a truck accident results in someone’s death, there are more extensive damages that can be collected on behalf of the victim’s family.
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.
