Toronto Truck Accident Lawyers Who Get Results
We build strong cases that insurance companies can’t ignore
Trucks travel the roads of Toronto every day, on their way to making deliveries throughout Canada. Most of the time, we barely notice them – except when there’s an accident. A truck accident can leave victims with serious injuries that can be life-altering. The experienced truck accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law help victims recover the financial compensation they need and deserve.
Truck accidents can happen on Highway 301, the Don Valley Parkway or any Toronto street. A driver may have been texting, checking a GPS, speeding or fell asleep at the wheel. Trucking companies can also be negligent. They may have given a driver an unrealistic schedule or failed to properly maintain the truck.
Fully loaded, a tractor-trailer can weigh as much as weigh 53,500 kg. An accident with a passenger car in Toronto can cause tremendous damage, especially if it happened on the highway at high speeds.
Toronto truck accident lawyers who fight for your rights
Car drivers and passengers can suffer a wide range of injuries in a Toronto truck accident. These include injuries to the head, neck and back, broken bones and lacerations. Victims may need surgery, hospitalization, attendant care, medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments. Recovery can take months or longer. Some victims are left with a permanent disability.
Our Toronto lawyers can help you apply for accident benefits following your crash. These include medical and rehabilitation benefits for the medical treatment you need, attendant care benefits if you need home care, and income replacement benefits if you had to miss time from work. We will fight against attempts by the insurance company to minimize your benefits.
We can also help you take legal action against negligent parties to recover the financial compensation you deserve. This can be a complicated process, but our experienced lawyers know how to build strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously.
Our legal team investigates your Toronto truck accident to get the facts. We gather evidence, including data from the truck’s electronic logging device and event data recorder (the truck’s “black box”). We carefully review police reports and medical records and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other industry professionals.

Since our founding in Toronto in 2001, we have earned a reputation among insurance companies. They know that our lawyers are always prepared, and they know from experience that we are not afraid to go to trial on behalf of our clients. That’s why they often agree to negotiate a settlement rather than face us in court.
We offer the experience and resources of a big law firm, but you’ll find we give clients the personal attention only a smaller firm can provide. We guide you through the legal process every step of the way, and you owe us nothing unless we recover compensation for you. It’s our “no win, no fee” promise.
