Commercial vehicle accident cases have several considerations

Commercial vehicles can be found on almost every roadway in Ontario. These large vehicles serve very important purposes, such as delivering goods to shops and getting large items to consumers. When you consider the large size and considerable weight of these vehicles, it is easy to see why the drivers who operate them must follow proper safety procedures. When drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted by non-driving activities, driving while fatigued or other similar acts, it is possible for the commercial vehicle driver to cause an accident.

When we begin working on a case that involves a commercial vehicle, a primary concern is determining the cause of the accident. Poor training, improper loading, careless driving practices and a host of other possibilities must be explored so that we can get an accurate account of what happened.

Once we have determined what caused the accident, we can move toward finding out who is responsible for the accident. In some cases, such as when improper maintenance was done on the truck, the answer to who is liable might not include the trucker. In other cases, such as when trucker distraction was a factor, the answer might indeed be the trucker.

Other factors, such as jurisdiction, can also have an impact on your case. Determining the correct location to file a claim for compensation, as well as learning about the other considerations for your case, can help you to make a plan for seeking compensation. It can also help you to ensure that you are prepared for the legal battle that you might face.
