Campbell River Truck Accident Lawyers


Being involved in a collision with a large commercial vehicle like a truck can be a shocking, traumatic, and life-changing experience. Drivers expect the people who operate trucks professionally to obey traffic laws and exercise caution behind the wheel. When truck drivers violate the rules of the road and engage in unsafe behaviours, their negligent actions could have long-term consequences.

Even though large commercial vehicles are involved in less than 1% of the province’s crashes, trucks are responsible for 20% of fatal collisions throughout British Columbia. When truck drivers fail to live up to the responsibilities of their profession and show no consideration for public safety, lives can be lost in sudden, violent accidents.

Oftentimes, the victims of near-fatal truck accidents in Campbell River sustain many types of injuries. Depending on their severity and the impact they have on the truck accident survivor’s overall quality of life, these injuries could have multiple adverse effects, including financial insecurity and psychological distress.

Indeed, many injured survivors of traumatic incidents develop severe, potentially debilitating mental health issues. People who have been injured in collisions caused by negligent truck drivers often experience:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol abuse disorder
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

Coping with the physical and psychological effects of an injury-causing truck accident can be expensive. However, if you were injured in a collision before May 1, 2021, our Campbell River truck accident lawyers may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Depending on the circumstances of your collision, our truck accident lawyers serving Campbell River may be able to pursue a civil claim on your behalf. By doing so, you may be able to recover damages from the at-fault truck driver and, if appropriate, other contributorily negligent parties (such as the negligent driver’s employer).

If your truck accident occurred after May 1, 2021, you will most likely face additional hurdles in your pursuit of fair compensation. After implementing sweeping, institutional changes, ICBC has taken away the rights of injured collision survivors to pursue civil claims for damages incurred in motor vehicle accidents (except in certain scenarios). That means, if you were injured in a truck accident that took place after May 1, 2021, you will likely not be allowed to sue the at-fault driver. Furthermore, ICBC has made it more difficult than ever to appeal unfair decisions about insurance settlements. If you have received an unfairly low amount of ICBC accident benefits, or if your claim has been denied outright, it could be challenging to contest the company’s decision.

ICBC’s so-called “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage has made life measurably more difficult for injured truck accident survivors who are already experiencing profound challenges. To express your views about this new no-fault insurance system, contact your MLA.
