Columbia Dump Truck Accident Lawyer

Dump trucks typically haul gravel for use in road work, but other trucks are seen at construction sites, often hauling away material to the dump. A dump truck has a bed in the back which the driver can raise to help material flow out the bottom. These are large trucks, and like any big vehicle can get into a variety of accidents. The Stanley Law Group can help anyone injured in an accident involving a dump truck. Reach out to our firm today to speak with a Columbia dump truck accident lawyer.

Types of Dump Truck Accidents

Our clients are hurt in the following types of accidents:

  • A dump truck can crash into a vehicle as it exits a construction site or travels along the road. A trucker could be distracted or speeding and collide with a car.
  • Flying objects or debris. The material in the box could fly out and strike another vehicle or cause a motorist to swerve, leading to a crash. Truckers should cover the material with a tarp, but some are careless or forget to.
  • Tip overs. Dump trucks are unstable with the box raised. Material might not flow out evenly, leading to an unbalanced truck tipping over and landing on someone. These are fatal accidents. Survivors are often left with amputation or paralysis.
  • Backing up accidents. Trucks have large blind spots, and a trucker could run over someone walking behind the truck.

Many accidents are the fault of the trucker, who is careless, reckless, or distracted. Other accidents stem from defects on the truck. For example, poor hydraulic systems could lead to tip overs and other accidents. A tire could blow on the truck, making it hard to control.

You can receive compensation if you were hurt in a wreck. Our firm can help motorists, pedestrians, and workers who are injured in an accident involving one of these vehicles. In a consultation, we can discuss your legal rights to financial compensation for:

  • Pain and bodily inconvenience
  • Emotional anguish
  • Lost income or wages
  • Medical care
  • Damage to your vehicle or other property

Depending on your case, we might sue the trucker or the company that employs them. That way, we can maximize the compensation so that you are made whole following an accident.

Remember to document any accident, if you can. Evidence will disappear quickly if you don’t document. We recommend photographing the vehicles and speaking with witnesses. Also remember to call the police. Of course, some accidents are so tragic a victim cannot even move after the wreck, but document it as best you can. And then reach out to The Stanley Law Group. We will protect you from harassing claims adjusters, which will allow you to heal.
