Toronto Underride Accident Lawyers
You owe us nothing unless we recover compensation for you
There are different types of truck accidents that happen in the GTA. One of the most devastating types are underride accidents. They can leave victims with serious injuries that are sometimes fatal. When you were injured in a truck crash caused by negligence, you deserve compensation. The experienced truck accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law fight for your rights.
In underride accidents, a smaller vehicle crashes underneath the trailer of a tractor-trailer. Drivers and passengers can become trapped under the tractor-trailer and suffer serious injuries. There are different causes of underride accidents. They include:
- The driver of a truck slams on the brakes suddenly. A car traveling behind the truck is unable to stop in time.
- The brake lights of a truck are not working, and the driver of the car in back doesn’t know when the truck driver is braking.
- A truck driver is distracted and causes a multiple vehicle accident that results in an underride crash.
- A truck driver is operating recklessly and loses control of the truck.
You can suffer a wide range of serious injuries in an underride crash. They include broken bones and injuries to the head, neck and back. Severe injuries include traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries.
Toronto truck accident lawyers who fight the insurance companies on your behalf
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured in a truck accident. They know there is a lot of money at stake and will take steps to try to limit your compensation, however. There are different tactics they use. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing.
That’s why you need an experienced truck accident lawyer to fight for your rights. Our firm investigates your crash to get the facts. We gather evidence controlled by the trucking company, such as data from the truck’s black box (event data recorder) and safety records. We carefully review police reports and medical records. We interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other industry professionals.
Our lawyers build strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously. We’ve been helping the injured in the Greater Toronto Area since 2001. The insurance companies know who we are. They know that our lawyers are always prepared, and they know that we are never afraid to fight for our clients at trial.
