Truck drivers can be on the road for hours at a time. When drivers are carrying loads across the country or internationally, they can be under additional pressure to get to their destination as quickly as possible. Accidents caused by fatigued truck drivers can result in significant injuries.
At McLeish Orlando LLP, we help those who have been injured in trucking accidents throughout southern Ontario. Our lawyers are committed to helping you get through the difficulties of an unexpected injury.
Long-Haul and International Accidents
More frequently than not, trucking accidents involving long hauls or international routes include a driver that is fatigued. Drivers can be placed under significant pressure to drive longer hours than allowed by regulations, skip mandatory rest breaks and vehicle inspections, or to drive aggressively in order to make up time.
Regardless of whether the driver is in Canada or the U.S., there are strict regulations for driving a truck, particularly when it comes to taking breaks and undergoing inspections. Our Toronto long-haul trucking lawyers will investigate all possible causes of an accident, including truck driver fatigue, alcohol or drug abuse, vehicle inspection failure or violations of Ontario trucking regulations.
