Whistler Truck Accident Lawyer

A tractor-trailer may weigh 10 to 20 times more than the average car. When these two vehicles are involved in a crash, the results are often disastrous. Rehabilitation may take months or years, or you may never fully recover. You worry about the future and how you will support yourself and your family. Rather than deal with the ICBC or insurance adjusters when you should focus on healing, entrust your case to us, Preszler Law.

A Whistler truck accident lawyer from our firm will determine which parties are responsible and help you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.

What to do after a truck accident

Many victims are too badly injured to document any evidence at the scene of the crash, but if possible, take photos of the vehicles and road conditions Get the contact information for the driver and the trucking company, as well as any eyewitnesses.

Most people injured in a truck accident leave the location in an ambulance, but do not fail to seek immediate medical attention– even if you do not think you were hurt. After the trauma of a truck crash, the adrenaline rushing through the body may mask symptoms. Failure to receive a prompt medical assessment can damage your case. The insurance company may allege that your injuries are not that serious, or that some other event caused them.

By law, trucking companies must carry large amounts of insurance on their vehicles. Because they want to pay out as little as possible in settlements, they and their lawyers will fight hard. Therefore, obtaining legal counsel soon after the accident is critical. The faster an independent investigation is launched to protect your interests, the better for your claim.

Truck accident damages

Truck accident damages include economic and non-economic factors. The former may involve:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity

Non-economic factors may include pain and suffering. Unfortunately, large commercial trucks are responsible for approximately one-quarter of all motor vehicle fatalities in British Columbia.
