Kamloops Truck Accident Lawyers

If a truck driver engages in negligent behaviour behind the wheel – even for the briefest of moments – lives can be lost, families can be destroyed, and communities can feel the shock for years to come. In Kamloops, even non-fatal truck accidents can cause lasting damage that continues to impact the lives of injured accident victims and their families for years to come.

The injuries sustained by truck accident survivors could have profound impacts on their overall lives. Since trucks so greatly outweigh other vehicles, the occupants of smaller cars, as well as motorcycle riders, cyclists, pedestrians, and other vulnerable road-users could sustain catastrophic injuries in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver.

But regardless of the severity of the injuries sustained in a truck accident, the long-term effects of many types of injuries can lead to extraordinary challenges. Even non-major injuries can result in substantial financial losses and changes to a truck accident victim’s overall lifestyle.

Damages incurred by the injured victims of truck accidents often include:

  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Reduced future earning capabilities
  • Psychological counseling
  • Physiotherapy treatments
  • Medical expenses
  • Medical equipment
  • Mobility aids
  • Prosthetics
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • Costs of necessary home modifications
  • Housekeeping services
  • Attendant care
  • Prescriptions
  • And more

Under ICBC’s new no-fault insurance system, it is now more difficult than ever for injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions to recover compensation that sufficiently replaces their total financial losses. Upon implementing their new, so-called “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage, ICBC began prohibiting injured accident victims from pursuing legal action against the people responsible for causing their injurious crash (except in certain situations). That means, even if a truck driver’s negligence caused you to sustain injuries in a collision, if your accident occurred after these changes took effect on May 1, 2021, you will likely be unable to pursue a civil claim against them in order to recover damages. Instead, you might receive ICBC accident benefits to offset the costs of injury-related losses you have incurred.

Unfortunately, the benefits awarded to injured accident survivors by the Crown insurance company are rarely enough to replace the income losses already incurred by injured truck accident victims or the injury-related losses they will incur in the future. However, ICBC has made it harder than ever to appeal unfair settlement decisions. Even if your ICBC claim has been denied, it can be difficult to contest the unfair determination to do so.

If your truck accident occurred before May 1, 2021, you may still be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the liable parties. To learn how our Kamloops truck accident lawyers may be able to fight on your behalf in your pursuit of fair compensation, contact us today.
