Trucking Accidents

Trucks make up a significant percentage of the traffic on Ontario highways and because of their size, accidents involving these vehicles can cause serious injuries.

In a typical year, thousands of people are injured in truck crashes on Ontario’s streets and highways. Trucking accidents can have severe and fatal consequences, including broken bones, amputated limbs, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, along with more chronic conditions such as arthritis, neck and back pain.

After suffering a collision with a large vehicle, many victims suffer personal injuries that can seriously impact their income earning potential, quality of life and their ability to engage with their family and household. These setbacks can leave truck crash victims feeling traumatized and overwhelmed.

Even if you are At Fault or the At Fault driver cannot be identified (as in a hit and run), our lawyers have the skills, experience and knowledge to obtain appropriate compensation.

At Mackesy Smye, we provide the tools Ontario truck accident victims need to put their lives back on track. If you have been injured in a truck crash, or if someone in your family has been killed in a fatal truck accident, our lawyers can help by providing the representation and the advice required to ensure that you receive appropriate compensation from insurance companies, cargo companies, construction companies and municipal or provincial authorities.

Involved in a truck accident or truck crash? Contact our Toronto law firm serving Toronto and the GTA.

Depending upon the individual characteristics of your case, your truck accident claim may include funds to compensate for physical pain and suffering, replace lost income and cover the costs of current and anticipated medical treatment or therapy. Some of these benefits may be claimed even if you have been determined to have been at fault.

Mackesy Smye’s team of personal injury experts have the experience to help truck accident victims and their families.
