Burnaby Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck accidents in Burnaby can have tragic, fatal outcomes. Large commercial trucks can be extremely dangerous if operated in a careless, reckless, distracted, or otherwise negligent manner.

Each year, approximately 60 people are killed in truck accidents throughout the province. Hundreds more sustain serious injuries as a result of collisions involving heavy vehicles like trucks. Dozens of families lose loved ones in senseless, violent collisions caused by negligent truck drivers every year, and hundreds more face life-changing consequences as the result of their relative’s severe, accident-related injuries.

Because of the injuries they have sustained in a collision, truck accident survivors in Burnaby often experience long-lasting  repercussions. Oftentimes, these are physical, psychological, and financial in nature. This is especially true for injured truck accident survivors who cannot return to work as a result of the injuries they sustained.

Facing mounting medical bills and expensive costs for necessary lifestyle adjustments, injured truck accident victims who can no longer continue working may find themselves in financial distress. They could struggle to continue supporting themselves and their families as a result of a complete stranger’s negligence behind the wheel of their truck.

If you were injured in a truck accident before May 1, 2021, you might be eligible to pursue legal action against the at-fault commercial vehicle operator and, depending on the circumstances of your collision, against the company or entity that employed the negligent truck driver. By working with our Burnaby truck accident lawyers, you might be able to pursue a civil claim to recover damages that are both economic and non-economic. These damages could include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Prosthetics
  • Mobility devices
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Attendant care
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychological counseling
  • Necessary home modifications
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And possibly more

Our Burnaby truck accident lawyers are standing by to review your situation and provide you with personalized legal feedback about compensatory options that might be available to you.

Unfortunately, if your injury-causing truck accident occurred after May 1, 2021, you might face additional challenges in your pursuit of fair compensation because of changes instituted by ICBC (the province’s sole provider of basic auto insurance). When ICBC switched to a no-fault insurance system, they took away injured accident victims’ rights to sue the driver responsible for their collision (except in specific circumstances). The Crown corporation also made it more difficult to contest unfairly denied ICBC claims. That means, if the settlement amount you were awarded does not fully replace your total accident-related losses, or if you were not awarded any ICBC accident benefits, you may find yourself with limited options to appeal the unfair decision.

If you are concerned about what these recent changes mean for you and your family in the wake of an injury-causing truck accident, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s new “enhanced care” insurance model.
