Common Causes of Garbage Truck Accidents

When a garbage truck driver is reckless or negligent, accidents can result and cause injury to other drivers, their passengers, and pedestrians. Due to the size of garbage trucks, these accidents sometimes cause serious injury, lasting disability, or even death. We help injured people in the Byran, TX area recover compensation for injuries caused by accidents with garbage trucks and all other types of large trucks.

The most common causes of garbage truck accidents include:

  • Trucks driving in the wrong lane
  • Illegal lane changes
  • Failure to stop at lights or stop signs
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Manufacturer defects in the garbage truck

Compensation for garbage truck accidents partially depends on who owns the truck. Some are owned by the city, while others are private companies. There are limits to compensation available from government entities under Texas law. We evaluate each case to determine all sources of liability and compensation to maximize recovery for our clients. If there is a defect in the truck, the manufacturer may be another source of compensation.
