Many accidents along the highway are caused by drivers impaired by their use of alcohol and illegal drugs. Truck drivers who spend their days on the road can form bad habits and put other drivers and passengers in danger. Accidents caused by impaired drivers can cause serious, if not fatal, injuries.
The southern Ontario firm of McLeish Orlando LLP advocates for people who have been injured in trucking accidents resulting from driver intoxication or drug abuse. Our lawyers are held in high esteem by other legal professionals, and we work diligently to make certain that our clients receive the maximum amount of accident benefits and compensation for their injuries.
Holding Drivers Accountable for Their Actions
Truck drivers spend hours (if not days) at a time on their own. Typically, there is not a lot of entertainment or social contact with individuals while they are working, and poor habits can form as a result of that. Drivers may not allow for sufficient time to recover after having a few drinks, or they may feel pressured by their employer into working longer hours than they should.
In accidents caused by alcohol or drug abuse, we examine the driver's history in detail, including investigating evidence for signs of alcohol or drug abuse in the past. We will also look into the hiring process that the company used, and whether or not appropriate screenings and tests were used in the hiring process.
