Police around Toronto and the GTA will be ramping up safety inspections on trucks and commercial vehicles on Toronto and Ontario roadways. This is important as more trucks take to the roads in Ontario during the warmer months. Truck owners and operators are responsible for inspecting and maintaining their trucks and other commercial vehicles on a regular basis.
Given that trucks are large and powerful vehicles, there is a greater risk of serious injury and even death in accidents involving trucks and commercial vehicles. Trucks require regular maintenance to ensure that they are working properly and safely. If maintenance is neglected on truck or commercial vehicle, then a truck may have brake problems, excess tire wear, defective brake and signal lights, or other problems that can lead to serious accidents on Ontario roadways.
In Ontario truck accidents, negligence can result from the conduct of the truck drivers, trucking companies, and/or the owner of the truck. Mechanical failures due to neglect are a major concern as they can result in serious truck and car accidents.

Motor vehicle accidents involving tractor trailers, 18-wheelers, semi trucks, and other large commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of greater than 10,000 pounds account for a significant number of accidents, deaths and injuries on Ontario’s roadways. In Southern Ontario, Toronto and the GTA, there are many trucks travelling on Highway 400 and Highway 401.
Making claims to truck industry insurance companies can be difficult. These cases are more complex than other motor vehicle accident claims. Due to their complexity, trucking accident cases require a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulation and trucking industry practices. Early collection of information is also essential in truck accident cases.
