Types Of Construction Trucks

Construction trucks are large and heavy, and they can severely injure people when they do not work as expected. Some of the more common trucks used on construction sites include:

  • Backhoes
  • Excavators
  • Dump trucks
  • Graders
  • Cranes
  • Cement mixers
  • Cherry pickers
  • Forklifts

Some of these vehicles even travel on the roads between job sites, so they can injure innocent members of the public.

Negligence & Construction Truck Accidents

Most of the cases we bring are for negligence, which in Georgia means the failure to use reasonable care. There are many varieties of negligence when it comes to construction truck accidents.

For example, the truck driver or operator could have been negligent. A dump truck driver who stops the truck on a slope increases the risk of it tipping over. The same is true of an operator who is careless or distracted and doesn’t notice that people are walking nearby. Any carelessness, negligence, or recklessness on the part of an operator makes them liable.

In other accidents, a contractor could be to blame for the accident, especially if they own the construction truck. They might have failed to train workers on how to operate the vehicle. For example, federal law prohibits anyone under 18 from operating a forklift and requires those over 18 to receive proper training and certification. An employer trying to cut corners and save money might violate these regulations, allowing untrained workers to use the lift.

To analyze negligence, we look at applicable safety standards and regulations, as well as the experience of others who work on construction sites. If a company has broken a safety regulation, that is very strong proof that negligence has happened.

Who We Represent In Construction Truck Accidents

We have experience representing the following people who are injured in an accident:

  • Construction workers. The worker could have been struck by a construction truck or injured while operating a defective one.
  • Members of the public. Innocent people can be hit when walking past construction sites or injured on the open road in a crash.
  • Family members. If your loved one died in a construction truck accident, you could have a wrongful death claim. An attorney can review the relevant facts.

Instead of assuming you don’t have a case, we encourage people to speak with an attorney to review. Construction workers, in particular, should ignore any attempt by an employer to dissuade them from meeting with an attorney to better understand their rights.

Steps To Take Following A Construction Truck Accident

These accidents can be scary. An injured victim must properly preserve their claim regardless of how injured they are. It can be difficult to check every box and preserve the relevant evidence, so working with an attorney is a big benefit.

If you were injured on the job, notify your employer as soon as possible, even if an ambulance is coming to pick you up. You want to protect other workers on the job site, while at the same time preserving your right to compensation. If necessary, have a coworker report the accident to your boss.

If you were injured on the road, call the police to come out to the scene. An officer will take down the relevant information and reduce it to an accident report. This is a critical piece of evidence to have when negotiating with insurance companies.

Regardless of where you were injured, remember to receive medical care promptly, and always follow your doctor’s instructions. If you try to self-diagnose an injury, you could forfeit your right to fair compensation. At a minimum, you could slow your recovery and turn temporary injuries into permanent ones.
