Have you been injured in a dump truck accident?

One of the most common large vehicles on the road, a dump truck is often used to transport loose materials like sand, gravel, or dirt. They have a hydraulically-operated open bed that lifts and allows the contents to slide to the ground behind the truck at the point of delivery.

Driven properly, a dump truck is an essential tool that the construction industry and others could not do without. Unfortunately, these useful trucks are often operated without proper attention to driver training or vehicle maintenance, making them an all-too-frequent source of large vehicle accidents. Both the dump truck driver and the company that owns the truck might be at fault for a dump truck crash, depending on the circumstances.

Heavy Loads Lead To Hazards On The Road

The dump truck accident lawyers of the Seattle Truck Law team have found that dump truck drivers are often paid by the weight of the contents they haul, creating an incentive to overload the trucks — making them harder to stop, more likely to roll over, and prone to releasing dangerous debris that can strike cars and cause serious injury. We also know from investigating past cases that some dump truck drivers attempt to boost their pay by making as many runs in a day as possible, which often leads to speeding and reckless driving.

Dump trucks and their heavy loads are regulated by the same federal and state rules that an 18-wheeler has to follow: the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Regulations. Some lawyers are not familiar with the intricacies of these complicated regulations, much less the complex workings of a dump truck accident. As a result, an attorney with past experience handling dump truck accidents is often the best choice in these cases.
