If you suffered injuries in an accident involving a construction truck, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers’ Atlanta construction truck accident attorneys could help you seek compensation. A negligent driver, improperly loaded construction truck, or incorrectly maintained vehicle could be the cause of your accident. Our firm aims to hold the responsible party accountable.
Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Assist With Many Construction Truck Accidents
Construction truck accidents can occur in various ways, and the specifics of your accident will determine who is liable. Types of accidents include:
- Accidents involving driver error – Construction truck drivers must exercise a duty of care when operating heaving equipment. Examples of driver negligence include speeding, driving under the influence, disobeying traffic laws, and driving while distracted.
- Accidents involving faulty equipment – The owner or entity responsible for maintaining construction vehicles must ensure equipment is properly serviced, in good working order, and outfitted with necessary safety features. If a defect arises from a manufacturing issue and harms you, you could have a product liability case.
- Falling load accidents – When cargo and debris are not adequately secured, they can fall off a construction truck and into the roadway. Falling loads could strike a vehicle or cause a driver to perform a defensive maneuver that results in an accident.
- Equipment rollover accidents – When trucks are overloaded, turn too sharply, park on too steep of a grade, or drive on loose surfaces, they can roll over. This creates a danger for the truck driver and others in the area.
- Runaway machines – A runaway piece of heavy machinery is dangerous. Runaways can happen when truck operators lose control of their trucks or fail to properly park equipment.
- Struck by/against accidents – Cranes, loaders, forklifts, and other construction trucks have appendages that can hit or crush nearby people and vehicles.
Potentially Liable Parties We Could Seek Truck Accident Compensation From
You have the legal right to seek awards from anyone whose negligent actions caused you damages. Our attorneys can look into your accident and pursue compensation from those responsible.
Construction truck accidents can be complex. More than one party may bear fault, including:
- A construction vehicle driver
- A driver’s employer
- A third-party motorist if they contributed to your crash
- The construction truck manufacturer or the maker of its parts
- The owner or entity responsible for the truck’s maintenance
- The owner or entity responsible for the roadway where your accident occurred
- The owner or entity responsible for the truck’s cargo
- Your employer or a third party associated with your accident (if you are a construction worker injured on the job)
