Truck Accident Lawyers

Trucks are a fact of life on our highways and roads, but that does not take away from the fact that an accident with a truck can be devastating and change the lives of all involved.

The Ministry of Transportation statistics show that in 2014, the latest year for which figures are available, large trucks were involved in 105 deaths, accounting for 22 per cent of all road fatalities in Ontario.

Truck drivers are required to hold a specific class of license in order to operate truck and cargo vehicles, but the regulations around the training required to obtain these license has been lacking as no formal instruction was necessary before student drivers could take their tests.
Coming into effect in summer 2017, all future tractor trailer drivers will be required to study at provincially licensed schools, spending more than 100 hours in training, both in the classroom and behind the wheel before they can book their test.

While this is a huge step forward in preventing accidents and will make the roads safer, accidents can still happen. Some other causes for truck accidents include:
• Driver exhaustion
• Driver Skill Level
• Vehicle safety inspections overlooked or negligent
• Unsafe loading practices or overloaded trailers
• Negligent or distracted Driving
• Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs
• Speeding or reckless driving
• Distracted Driving

Anna Pastore | Catastrophic Injury

I was injured in a car accident and sustained a fractured ankle, developing debilitating chronic pain. Joseph was very caring about me and how my case affected my family. He worked tirelessly on my case until we won and my case is now well known in the legal community. Throughout this whole ordeal, the only thing I can be thankful for is that Joseph was my lawyer, his care, compassion and experience made all the difference.

Omar C. | Vehicle Accident

I can’t thank Joseph Campisi enough. I was involved in a serious car accident and I suffered serious orthopaedic injuries which prevent me from ever returning to the job that I had at the time of the accident. Joseph and his team were always accessible, even on evenings or weekends. The settlement far exceeded my expectations and it will provide financial security for me and my family.

Bruno | Spinal Cord Injury

I feel fortunate that I was referred to Cesar Carranza. I suffered a spinal cord injury when I fell off a trailer. From the initial meeting when Cesar came to the hospital, he alleviated most of my troubles and I was able to focus on getting better. Cesar and Joseph settled my case quickly, and I felt supported through the whole process, not only by them but also by an awesome medical and rehabilitation team that they assembled.

Nika M | Brain Injury

My father was in a horrible crash and he suffered a severe brain injury as well as serious fractures. Joseph Campisi came highly recommended and he promised us that he would be relentless in representing my father. He kept his promise.
