Compensation for a dump truck accident

Regardless of the type of industry that you are in, there may often come a time when you are required to use a vehicle to get to where you need to go. Although in most cases it will be a car, some specific occupations require something a little more substantial and if you are in the waste removal industry, or you are simply looking to move equipment around, then you could find yourself at the helm of a dump truck.

Although in most situations dump trucks are incredibly safe to drive, mainly due to their robust nature, unfortunately some situations can occur which may leave us with injuries after using these vehicles. If you find yourself in this situation then you could consider making a compensation claim.

What is a dump truck?

A dump truck is a truck that is generally used for transportation of equipment or materials from one place to another. In the construction industry these trucks are used quite frequently right around the country for transporting loose materials that are used within this industry (such as dirt and gravel etc..) 

At the rear of the truck the tray is operated hydraulically and this allows for the truck to tip the tray up and slide the materials out onto the ground at the destination. This prevents a great deal of manual labour and can really help to cut down time and costs involved.

How could I sustain injuries from an accident with a dump truck?

There are a number of ways that a dump truck can lead to a potential accident when not used correctly, some common examples of this include:

  • Injuries caused by driver negligence
  • Injuries caused by a faulty dump truck tray
  • Injuries caused by negligent maintenance of a vehicle
  • Injuries caused by a vehicle failure
  • Injuries caused by a negligent vehicle operator.
