Have you been injured
Large trucks can cause extremely serious accidents. People injured in truck accidents have access to Statutory Accident Benefits under Ontario’s no-fault insurance laws. These benefits include medical and rehabilitation care, attendant care, income replacement benefits for those who do not work, and other benefits. Our lawyers will review your case and determine whether you are eligible to file a truck accident injury claim against the truck driver, truck owner, the trucking company, or other responsible parties.

Your recovery in a personal injury action can include compensation for your medical expenses, hospital bills, income lost because of missed work, pain and suffering, future medical or physical therapy expenses and compensation for any loss of earning capacity resulting from the accident.
It is best to speak with an attorney right away. The time limits for taking legal action vary by province, and they may also be affected by insurance policy terms and conditions. The nature of your injuries may even change the amount of time you have available.
Accidents involving trucks are typically more catastrophic than accidents involving cars due to the sheer size of a truck. A typical fully loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds or more, while an average passenger automobile weighs approximately 3,000 pounds. Due to this size disparity, and the basic laws of physics, any collision between a commercial truck and another vehicle is likely to result in serious, even fatal, injuries.
