Toronto Drunk Driving Lawyers
Driving while intoxicated is a serious and dangerous crime that can lead to injury and death. This is especially true when the intoxicated driver is operating a large commercial vehicle or semi-truck. The sheer force and weight of one of these vehicles make accidents caused by their drivers significantly worse, especially when being controlled by someone who is not fully present. Being involved in a drunk driving accident with a commercial truck usually leads to disaster and pain on the behalf of the victim. If you or someone you love is the victim of an accident caused by a drunk commercial driver, contact a personal injury lawyer.
When a vehicle accident causes injury or death, it can also cause physical, mental, and financial suffering. The trauma from the accident can linger in your mind and the medical bills and loss of income can take a heavy toll on your finances. With that being said, an experienced personal injury lawyer can get you the compensation you deserve. At the Mazin & Associates, PC, we understand how difficult it can be to recover from a drunk driving accident, but we also know you have the right, as the victim, to claim restitution for your pain.
Damages Victims Can Recover
You lose a lot when you are the victim of a drunk driving accident and someone should be held liable for those losses. This is, of course, the driver who caused the accident with their recklessness, but the trucking company that employs the driver may also be liable.
If the company was aware of the driver having a history of drunk driving, was aware the driver had been drinking, or failed to train and adequately supervise the driver, they may be found negligent in the case of the accident. A knowledgeable lawyer will be able to help you determine who is liable. Either way, victims or their families have the possibility of recovering the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
- Lost income
- Property damage
- Wrongful death
Recovering from this kind of accident can prove to be a very long and strenuous task, but having a qualified lawyer to guide you through the legal process and getting the compensation you deserve may relieve some of the stress you feel.
