B.C. Tractor-Trailer Accident Lawyers
The unique requirements of operating a commercial truck put an additional responsibility on the driver to take special precautions to ensure the safety of everyone else on the road. In addition, commercial truck drivers are required to abide by certain regulations that govern such issues as how long they are allowed to be on the road, what types of loads they are allowed to carry and many others.
Any failure in responsibility by a truck driver can result in serious accidents that can cause extremely severe and, sometimes, fatal injuries to victims. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck crash that involved a commercial truck, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the responsible parties. Be sure that you have an experienced personal injury lawyer who has the skill and the commitment to protect your interests.
Holding All Negligent Parties Accountable
Trucking accident cases can be extremely complex, because there are often multiple parties who might share in the liability for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the negligent truck driver, the owner of the truck, the maintenance company and others might all be held partially accountable in these matters. In addition, manufacturers can be held liable if an equipment malfunction is shown to have caused the accident.

We are skilled litigators who diligently pursue every available option in an effort to secure the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
