Chilliwack Truck Accident Lawyer

Chilliwack is bisected by the TransCanada Highway, a key thoroughfare for commercial trucks in British Columbia. Given the size and sheer weight of a tractor-trailer or a loaded semi, drivers of passenger vehicles are incredibly vulnerable to suffering severe injury in the event of a crash.

How we can help you 

Semis, 18-wheelers and big rigs weigh up to 20 times that of the average passenger car. When the two collide, life-threatening and fatal injuries are all too common. Those who survive a collision with a large truck may sustain spinal cord injuries, organ damage, third-degree burns, amputation injuries, or head and brain trauma.

Trucking companies will try to minimize potential liability, which is why it’s imperative to have a skilled lawyer in your corner. As with any litigation, the sooner evidence from the accident scene is collected, the better your chances of achieving a fair outcome. Further, you may be entitled to more benefits than you think, so it’s a good idea to consult a truck accident law firm.

Our legal team collaborates with veteran investigators and accident reconstructionists to build a solid case that speaks to the whole extent of your physical injuries, economic hardships, pain and suffering. Compensation available to plaintiffs may include money for:

  • Hospital and medical care expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of benefits
