Ontario Injury Lawyer Discusses Rights of Ontario resident Injured in Accident with out-of-Province Transport Truck
Ontario residents injured in a crash involving an out-of-province or U.S. based transport trucks, tractor trailers or semi truck have rights to recover for their losses. Accidents involving tractor trailers occur often throughout Ontario highways. Often, these accidents will involve trucks or drivers from another province or state. For injured Ontario residents, it is important to know that you have rights to recover for your injuries or losses. In fatal accidents, family members will also be able to advance a claim for the loss of their loved one.
Out of province transport trucks travelling on Ontario highways are subject to the same laws as Ontario vehicles and drivers. Ontario residents that are involved in a crash with a tractor trailer may be able to advance both no-fault and at-fault insurance claims.
Tractor trailer accidents are not the same as crashes involving passenger vehicles. Transport trucks can, and often do, cause serious injury, death and property damage on roadways. These vehicles are involved in trade and commerce and are usually defended by large corporations, their insurance companies and lawyers. Even in a seemingly straight forward collision, the special interest defending these claims will go to great lengths to find avenues to defend the conduct of the truck and it's driver. It is common for truck accident cases to have accident reconstruction experts, bio mechanical experts and/or human factors experts. In many cases, insurance companies will deploy resources immediately following the notice of a serious accident involving injury or death. All of these efforts are made by and on behalf of the trucking company in order to defeat or limit the claim of the injured victims. For these reasons, it is important to have an experienced truck accident lawyer working for you and your family as soon as possible following a crash involving a transport truck.
