Liability In Garbage Truck Accidents
Garbage trucks can weigh as much as 32 tons and can therefore be difficult to maneuver. If a garbage truck driver isn’t careful they could fail to negotiate a curve in the road. Of course, this is also true for large commercial vehicles as well. According to the FMCSA, fatigued driving remains a huge problem and is a contributing factor in thousands of accidents every year.
If the operator of a commercial vehicle is negligent and causes an accident they may face civil liability if anyone is injured. The employer of the negligent driver may face liability as well if that driver was working when the accident took place.
