Ontario Driver's Owe Duty of Care To Pedestrians
In Ontario, drivers of motor vehicles owe a duty of care to pedestrians. Often, when a pedestrian is struck by a car or other motor vehicle in Ontario, there is a presumption of negligence against the driver of the motor vehicle. Nonetheless, pedestrian motor vehicle accidents are often vigorously defended and, as such, early preservation of facts and witness accounts is critical.

Ontario Fatal Accident and Wrongful Death Claims
In Ontario, when a person is killed as a result of a car or truck accident, the family of the deceased may be able to advance a wrongful death claim.

Ontario Truck Accident Lawyer
This Rosemond fatal accident involved a passenger vehicle and commercial dump truck. Sadly, many accidents involving dump trucks, tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles are often fatal for the occupants of the passenger vehicle. Due to the size and mass of commercial vehicles, they can cause devastating damage during an impact. Large trucks are also more difficult to slow down or stop in emergency situations. As such, speed can often be a factor in Ontario truck accidents.
An Ontario accident involving a large dump truck, tractor trailer or commercial vehicle is more complex than motor vehicle collisions involving passenger vehicles only. Due to their complexity, Ontario truck accident cases require a Ontario truck accident lawyer with a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and provincial level. Truck and transport companies are required to follow safety and inspection regulations concerning their equipment and their drivers' hours of service.
Ontario tractor trailer and truck accidents are caused by a variety of factors, often related to vehicle safety, driver skill level, and driver fatigue.
There are reports of a fatal car accident that occurred on highway 407 in Oakville. According to early reports this fatal car accident involved a head-on collision with a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction.
We offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman who tragically lost her life in this fatal accident.
