Kamloops Truck Accident Lawyers

Operating a large, heavy, commercial vehicle is a challenging task. Truck drivers operate high-speed vehicles that often outweigh 10,000 kgs. Doing so requires an abundance of caution, alertness, skill, and consideration for the safety of other road-users.

Truck drivers are often required to spend long stretches of time traversing the roads and highways that connect communities across the country. In order to meet tight delivery deadlines, they might find themselves adopting unsafe driving habits, skipping meals, foregoing sleep, and driving their dangerous vehicles well past the point of exhaustion. By engaging in various forms of negligent driving, truck drivers endanger the lives of countless road-users.

Each year, throughout the province, approximately 60 people are killed in truck accidents. These senseless, fatal collisions have devastating emotional and financial repercussions for the bereaved family members of wrongfully deceased truck accident victims.

Because of their vehicle’s sheer size and weight, truck drivers have greater physical protection in the event of a collision than other road-users. The occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcycle riders, cyclists, and pedestrians are far more likely to be killed or severely injured in a truck accident than the operator of the heavy commercial vehicle.

Truck accident victims who manage to survive their traumatic collision often sustain various types of injuries. Depending on the severity of the crash and the overall effects of their injuries, truck accident survivors may be forced to cope with the consequences of a negligent truck driver’s wrongful actions for the rest of their lives.

As a result of the injuries they have sustained, many truck accident survivors face physically painful challenges, psychological distress, and financial insecurity. The process of recovering from injuries and readjusting to regular life after an earth-shattering truck accident can be long, difficult, and expensive.

If you were injured in a truck accident before May 1, 2021, you might be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the negligent truck driver whose wrongful conduct led to your collision. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you might also be entitled to pursue damages against other contributorily negligent parties. For example, if a truck driver’s employer was aware they had a history of unsafe driving but allowed them to continue operating a dangerous vehicle, they might also be considered liable for your resulting damages.

Unfortunately, because of recently implemented changes to the ways in which ICBC responds to accident claims, it is now more difficult than ever to get the compensation you deserve in the wake of an injury-causing truck accident. Since instituting its new no-fault insurance model, ICBC has made it impossible for injured accident victims to sue the parties responsible for causing the collision (except in certain situations). Additionally, it is now more difficult than ever to dispute unfairly low settlement amounts or to appeal denied claims. If the ICBC accident benefits you receive do not cover your total financial losses, it can be very difficult to push back against their unfair decision. To voice your concerns over these drastic policy changes, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s no-fault insurance system.
