Garbage Truck Accidents

For most of us, garbage trucks exist in the background. They come and go, collecting our refuse and keeping our neighborhoods and cities clean while we go about our everyday lives. When a garbage truck goes by, for most of us, it is just another normal day.

But, for some, garbage truck accidents change everything. Garbage trucks are big and heavy, and they have limited visibility. Rather than paying attention to their surroundings, garbage truck drivers are often focused on the job at hand. As a result, they run stop signs, they merge into oncoming traffic and they make other mistakes that leave unsuspecting victims with life-changing injuries.

For more information about your rights following any of the following types of garbage truck accidents, we encourage you to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation:

  • Bicycle Garbage Truck Accidents – Bicyclists are entitled to share the road with motor vehicles. Unfortunately, some drivers do not seem to think so. Bicycle riders can suffer serious injuries in sideswipes and other accidents caused by negligent garbage truck drivers.
  • Motorcycle Garbage Truck Accidents – Garbage trucks make frequent stops and starts, and they often pull into traffic without warning. Fully-loaded garbage trucks are also extremely heavy and difficult to stop. These factors all create additional risks for motorcycle riders, who may suddenly find themselves unable to avoid being injured in a garbage truck collision.
  • Passenger Vehicle Garbage Truck Accidents – From intersections to merging lanes, garbage truck accidents can happen anywhere. Failure to yield, distracted driving, and following too closely are just a few of the countless truck driver mistakes that can lead to dangerous accidents.
  • Pedestrian Garbage Truck Accidents – Garbage trucks can present extreme hazards for pedestrians. They do not follow the driving patterns of other vehicles, and their drivers often do not follow the rules of the road. If you or someone you love has been hit by a garbage truck, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.
