On any sort of route that a garbage truck is taking to pick up the waste, whether on a residential site or commercial site, a person can find themselves in a crash that leads to dire physical and financial consequences. Fortunately, there is legal help available if you suffer an injury due to the negligent actions of a municipal truck driver.

A Gwinnett County garbage truck accident lawyer could work with you to determine which party may be liable for a wreck and what damages you may be able to recover for. With a qualified truck accident attorney’s help, you could seek appropriate compensation for all your injuries and losses.

Common Causes of Garbage Truck Accidents

A person might find themselves in an accident with a municipal waste truck. Municipal waste trucks typically make frequent stops and are bulky, unwieldy vehicles. As a result, they can be somewhat unpredictable, making it challenging for other drivers to anticipate their movements.

Sudden stops, driving in the middle of the road, and a focus by the truck’s driver on their job duties, as opposed to oncoming or following traffic, are all scenarios that could lead to a garbage truck wreck. These accidents can be serious in nature, given the immense size of these vehicles. If a garbage truck hits another vehicle or vice versa, the driver and any passengers in the smaller car commonly suffer severe injuries, as experienced Gwinnett County trash truck accident attorneys know all too well.

Determining Liability for a Trash Truck Crash

When injuries are sustained due to the negligent operation of a garbage truck rather than any mechanical failure within the truck, the crux of any ensuing civil litigation would usually be the negligence of the garbage truck driver or the entity that operated the truck. If trash is falling out onto the road, if the truck is being driven carelessly, or if there is a mechanical failure that stems directly from a mistake by a person working on the truck, the entity responsible for hiring and overseeing that employee may bear liability for their employee’s actions.

When garbage is collected by a municipality, a county, or a city, an injured person has to file the claim with whoever is in charge of the specific truck involved. A garbage truck crash lawyer in Gwinnett County could help determine which party or parties may be liable in a particular case. After establishing liability, a dedicated lawyer could help an injured individual recover damages.

Seek Professional Assistance from a Gwinnett County Garbage Truck Accident Attorney

People involved in auto wrecks with municipal trash trucks often suffer significant injuries that result in crippling financial losses and grave long-term consequences for their personal help. If this happens to you, it is important to know that you are not alone if you want to seek civil restitution.

Once retained, a Gwinnett County garbage truck accident lawyer could work tirelessly to take stock of all your compensable losses, collect evidence of legal negligence, and file suit against all liable parties for appropriate financial compensation. For more information or to schedule an initial consultation, call a seasoned truck accident attorney today.
