What Makes Dump Truck Accidents So Dangerous?

There are several factors that contribute to the severity of dump truck accidents. First and foremost is the size and weight of the truck. The force of a collision between a dump truck and another vehicle is often enough to cause serious injuries or even death. 

In addition to their size and weight, dump trucks have blind spots (areas where the driver cannot see other vehicles), making it difficult for them to avoid accidents. Dump trucks also typically have large trailers that extend several feet beyond the back of the cab. This makes it difficult for other drivers to see what is happening behind the truck, further increasing the risk of an accident. 

Finally, many dump trucks are not equipped with seatbelts for the driver or passengers. This increases the likelihood of injuries in an accident, as occupants can be ejected from the cab or thrown around inside it.

What Are Common Causes of Dump Truck Accidents? 

There are several common causes of dump truck accidents. Some of these are: 

  • Inexperienced or untrained drivers: Driving a dump truck takes skill and experience. Unfortunately, not all companies take care when hiring drivers for these types of vehicles. In some cases, inexperienced or untrained drivers may be involved in an accident because they do not know how to operate the truck safely.
  • Distracted driving: Drivers who are distracted by their cell phones or other electronic devices are more likely to cause an accident. Distracted driving is especially dangerous because it increases the risk of both rear-end collisions and sideswipe accidents.
  • Fatigued driving: Drivers who are tired are more likely to make mistakes that could lead to an accident. For this reason, it is important for companies to ensure that their drivers get enough rest before getting behind the wheel of a dump truck.

Types of Injuries Sustained in Dump Truck Accidents

Given their size and weight, it’s not surprising that dump trucks can cause serious injuries when they crash into smaller vehicles. Some of the most common injuries sustained in dump truck accidents include:

  • \Head Injuries
  • \Neck Injuries
  • \Back Injuries
  • \Spinal Chord Injuries
  • \Broken Bones
  • \Lacerations

The Absolute Best

I hired Alex Durst to represent me in a truck accident case that was very serious and traumatic. The truck company fought the case hard and tried to blame ME for the accident. Durst was not going to let that happen.

In the end, I got a GREAT settlement. It’s a huge relief...

- Gaby M

$1,000,000

Settlement

Personal injury case where landlord negligence led to a woman and child being forced to jump from 3rd floor apartment building during a fire.

The client ultimately recovered successfully.

“Aggressive and tough. Proven winner.”

Alex proved to be a very tough lawyer - he didn’t take the easy, quick money, but rather took the time and went through the necessary steps to really set the case up right.
