Richmond Truck Accident Lawyers


If you have recently been injured in a truck accident, you may have already experienced drastic changes to your overall quality of life. Many survivors of traumatic collisions caused by negligent truck drivers experience long-lasting physical, psychological, and financial repercussions.

Since trucks are so much larger and heavier than regular passenger vehicles, collisions between the two can be fatal. Indeed, the occupants of passenger vehicles involved in truck accidents are four times more likely to be fatally injured than the truck’s driver.

Passenger vehicle occupants, motorcycle riders, cyclists, and pedestrians who survive near-fatal collisions with trucks are liable to sustain various types of injuries.These injuries can range in severity from moderate to catastrophic and often include:

  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Sensory losses
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • And more

After being injured in a collision with a large commercial vehicle, injured truck accident survivors must file an ICBC claim in order to recover accident benefits. These ICBC accident benefits are meant to offset the costs of injury-related financial losses incurred by the victims of motor vehicle collisions. However, because of recent changes to an entirely no-fault system of insurance, it is now more difficult than ever for injured accident survivors in Richmond to recover the timely medical care and fair compensation to which they should be entitled.

ICBC’s so-called “enhanced care” insurance model robs injured truck accident victims of their rights to sue the driver responsible for causing their collision and any other contributorily negligent parties (such as the trucking company who employed an unsafe driver), except in certain circumstances. On top of that, if the settlement amount awarded to an injured truck accident survivor is too low to cover their total financial losses, appealing ICBC’s unfair decision can now seem like an impossibility. To express your concerns about what ICBC’s new, no-fault insurance system could mean for your physical recovery and your family’s financial security in the wake of a traumatic truck accident, contact your MLA.

The “enhanced care” insurance system took effect on May 1, 2021. If you were injured in a truck accident that occurred before May 1, 2021, you might be entitled to pursue legal action.
