Were You In An Accident With A Garbage Truck?
Garbage trucks are the cause of many accidents and injuries. Some of the causes include the visibility limitations of the trucks themselves, the stop and start nature of garbage removal and in some occasions, the negligence of the drivers.
At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., we fight for our clients’ compensation. We have been representing Massachusetts garbage truck accident victims since 1961. Our attorneys have the experience and savvy to help you get the best possible financial compensation award for your losses.
Representing Clients In Garbage Truck Accidents
Garbage trucks are large, oversized vehicles that are common sights in neighborhoods throughout the country. Unfortunately, garbage trucks are often also a common cause of accidents. Drivers are expected to operate the vehicles with caution and be aware of vehicles around them. However, this does not always happen. Accidents can occur due to:
- Falling debris from the back of the truck
- Garbage falling as a trash can is being lifted
- Trash cans falling off of a truck
- Collision with the truck
- Driver negligence
We represent clients who have been injured by garbage trucks, as well as other large trucks such as dump trucks. Falling debris and serious collisions are common with these types of trucks as well.
