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 often lead to serious injuries and sometimes even death of the driver and occupants. This is even more likely when large trucks and commercial vehicles are involved. There are reports that two men were killed as a result of serious motor vehicle collision in Zorra Township near Woodstock Ontario on February 25, 2012. According to reports, the accident involved a collision between a large feed truck and a pickup truck.
First and foremost, we would like to offer our thoughts and our support for the families who are grieving as a result of this tragic accident.
Sadly, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Ontario truck accidents. Most often, these accidents are the result of driver error, fatigue or distractions. Clearly, more information would be necessary in order to assign fault for this Woodstock truck accident. It is reported that police are performing a collision reconstruction investigation. However, if one or both of the drivers is found to be at fault, it could lead to the filing of a Ontario personal injury lawsuit for the families of the deceased. If such a lawsuit is filed, and if it is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their loss of guidance, care and companionship, and services and support.
If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed in a motor vehicle crash, you can obtain help from an Ontario personal injury lawyer. For a free consultation with a dedicated personal injury lawyer, contact Iacobelli Law Firm.
