Garbage Truck Accident Injury Lawyer.

There are very few people that realize the dangers of garbage trucks. Most often, only people injured and personal injury lawyers get it. Many people do not recognize a large number of accidents involving cars and pedestrians.

In many cases, these accidents result in severe or deadly injuries. Also, cars, passenger trucks, and motorcycles are no match for the size and weight of this kind of truck. The pedestrian has no defense against a motor vehicle. And people on foot certainly have no chance against trucks of this size.

The Los Angeles garbage truck accident attorneys at Ehline Law Firm have handled hundreds of truck accident cases and numerous garbage truck injury claims. Our lawyers understand your unique issues.

If you were in this type of truck accident, we could help. In fact, we have the experience, litigation skills, and resources to obtain money. Also, we will be fair to the victim or the family in a wrongful death case. We mourn your loss.

But we also have a clear head when you won’t. Our law firm has obtained large settlements and verdicts. And we have done so for families that have suffered the loss of loved ones.


Blue, Black, or Green—Waste Truck Color Doesn’t Matter?

The color of waste trucks can vary. Usually, they are color coded. It could be blue recycling trucks, black garbage trucks, or the green compost ones. Most of all, they are all large.

And they all weigh tons. Most of all, they are difficult to maneuver for the driver. The driver needs to use extra care when driving these trucks. And they must be alert to blind spots when backing up or pulling into traffic.

Just as other commercial truck drivers, the driver of this large vehicle must be good. If they have inadequate training, we have a problem. And what if they carelessly operate the truck? How about if they are speeding? Then, in that case, it can put the public at risk of injury or death.

How Does Lack of Back Up Cameras Make Accidents More Common?

Another issue with these large trucks is many of them are not equipped with backup cameras. So that means drivers have a limited vision for cars and pedestrians behind them. Back-up accidents are one of the most substantial hazards.

  • The law firm represents the families of people, whose vehicle could be behind a garbage truck. So if the truck driver backs up, it could cause injuries, hitting and sandwiching it between the traffic behind it, and in the oncoming traffic. And this can cause a fatality since it presented no chance to evacuate the occupants. Often, trucks are not even aware there is a car behind them.
  • Children are often pedestrians that suffer fatal injuries. A garbage truck accident and a child can spell instant death. Children do not realize the dangers involved. And people do not think the truck will back-up over the sidewalk.

We represent families with fact patterns like a child struck and killed by a garbage truck. These can happen when a truck jumps the curb onto a sidewalk. A situation where the child is riding a bike is like this.

He does not hear the truck behind them. And the driver did not see the child until it was too late. So when the driver does not have the training to handle a vehicle of this size, a child or pet can get run over. Of course, there are many more examples. And yes, there are cases like this all the time.


Defective Parts.

Defective parts are another issue that can contribute to or cause a garbage truck accident. Investigating, identifying, and proving the case is key. So lawyers must show there was a problem with a defective part.

So an accident of this nature takes a law firm with resources to launch an expert investigation. Not having this proof could mean settling a case for a much lower amount. Or it could even mean not being able to file a claim at all.
