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.

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.
