Coquitlam Truck Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured in a truck accident that was caused by a negligent or reckless driver? Our Preszler team of Coquitlam personal injury lawyers fights for the rights of injury victims. Every year, collisions involving semi-trucks and tractor-trailers result in catastrophic injuries and deaths throughout British Columbia.

Due to their complexity, these crashes necessitate an in-depth understanding of commercial vehicle laws and regulations.  Only a personal injury law firm that understands these issues can maximize your recovery. Our legal team knows the grim consequences of truck accident injuries, which often require costly medical care and months of rehabilitation and support.

We are proud to help injury victims seek justice and the full compensation they deserve. To discuss your legal options with a dedicated lawyer in Coquitlam, we invite you to schedule a free, no-obligation case evaluation with Preszler Law.

 Injuries sustained in large truck accidents

It’s not uncommon for tractor-trailers or big rigs to lose control on icy roads, merge into traffic without checking blind spots, or jackknife after a sudden brake. When an 18-wheeler, weighing up 80,000 pounds, collides with a smaller passenger car, traumatic injuries are inevitable.

We work with some of the top health care providers in the area, who can aid in the recovery of the most debilitating injuries, including:

  • Skull fractures
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Loss of limb
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Spinal cord trauma resulting in paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Neck and shoulder injuries
  • Severe burns and scarring
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones

Maximize your financial recovery 

We understand the tremendous hardships victims and their families face, not just physically, but emotionally, too. It is our goal to help restore your quality of life by working toward a favourable settlement or judgement that pays for both immediate and long-term expenses related to your injuries and losses.

A personal injury lawyer cannot undo the trauma you have suffered, but our Coquitlam team can advocate for your rights and seek full compensation for your pain and suffering, lost income, loss of enjoyment of life, and ongoing rehabilitation.

Investigations will uncover liable parties 

Liability can be challenging to establish without assistance from a truck accident law firm. Our lawyers will investigate all factors, from driver training and experience to the safety and roadworthiness of the truck. In some accidents, it is found that tractor-trailers had unsecured loads, poorly maintained tires, or faulty hitches. Other truck accidents stem from:

  • Sleep deprivation – driver fatigue
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Driver inexperience
  • Tire blowouts
  • Driver error
  • Equipment failure
  • Overloaded cargo
  • Impairment by alcohol or drugs
  • Lax maintenance
  • Defective road conditions
