Injuries from Dump Truck Accidents
There are a number of different injuries that may be sustained in a dump truck accident. In an auto accident involving a dump truck, the driver of the truck may suffer from whiplash, broken bones, spinal cord injury, and other injuries often related to traffic collisions - particularly if the dump truck tips or rolls over. Any construction worker or individual responsible for loading or unloading a dump truck may sustain injury if the load is suddenly released on him or her. Many dump trucks have hydraulically operated open beds that can be lifted in order to allow the contents to be emptied to the ground. Operator error or defective equipment related to this function may cause lasting injuries. This type of accident may cause crushed limbs, damage to internal organs, amputation, and more.
A dump truck accident may be attributed to negligent safety standards, operator or driver error, improper loading or unloading, or equipment malfunction. In any accident of this kind, both the operator of the truck and any worker or driver in the vicinity of the accident may be at risk of sustaining catastrophic injuries.Contact a Los Angeles dump truck accident attorney at Pacific Attorney Group to talk about your legal rights and options in recovering financial compensation.
