Most large transportation and construction vehicles, such as dump trucks, are a cause for serious concern for drivers and workers. Accidents involving these vehicles can cause critical injury as a consequence of operator error. These vehicles are prone to roll overs, and also pose an increased risk of collision with neighbouring vehicles that travel within their blind spots.

WHY DO DUMP TRUCK ACCIDENTS HAPPEN?
There are many factors that can prompt a collision between a dump truck and a motorist, cyclist or pedestrian, such as: unqualified drivers, carelessness and negligence, driving under the influence, operator error, vehicle error due to poor maintenance, fatigue, failure to obey traffic laws, blind spots, failure to comply with safety regulations.
A DUMP TRUCK ACCIDENT CAN OPEN OPPORTUNITIES FOR CLAIMS SUCH AS:
- PERSONAL INJURIES
- PRESCRIPTION AND MEDICAL COSTS
- LOSS OF EARNINGS
- HOUSE CLEANING
- PROPERTY DAMAGE
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should be aware of their surroundings and leave a safe space between them and the dump truck to ensure that, in the case of an emergency, there is enough time to act. Similarly, employers of dump truck operators need to ensure that these operators are trained to utilize their vehicles safely. Dump Truck operators have a duty to be aware of their surroundings and to do their due diligence to assure the safety of the surrounding workers and individuals. This includes: not texting, eating or drinking while operating this heavy machinery.
RECEIVE COMPENSATION FOR INJURIES SUCH AS:
- Skin lacerations

- Head trauma
- Loss of companionship
- And much more
