  • What Causes Sanitation Truck Accidents?

    Sanitation truck accidents mostly occur when the driver makes mistakes, such as when they’re distracted or fatigued. Such cases are particularly common given the early or late hours that sanitation workers often operate.

    Mechanical failures from poor maintenance can also lead to sanitation truck accidents. Keep in mind that these trucks require regular upkeep, given their heavy use and the rough nature of the materials they handle.

    Visibility issues, especially when working early in the morning and under poor weather conditions, can also cause such accidents. Don’t forget that sanitation trucks often have blind spots that can obscure pedestrians, cyclists, or smaller vehicles, especially in highly-populated urban environments.

  • What Should I Do After a Sanitation Truck Accident?

    Here are some quick tips to guide you if you’ve been involved in a sanitation truck accident:

    • Move to a secure location if possible to ensure your safety.
    • Call emergency services immediately to report the accident and receive any necessary medical attention.
    • Document the scene with photos, videos, and even notes, if possible.
    • Gather contact information from any witnesses
    • Obtain a copy of the accident report from the responding officers.
    • Contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case review by a sanitation truck accident expert.
  • Can Sanitation Truck Company Employees File a Claim?

    Yes, employees who are injured in sanitation truck accidents typically have the right to file a claim. In most cases, they’ll need to file a workers' compensation claim. If so, Morgan and Morgan files the most employment-related cases in America. 

    Workers compensation is a type of insurance that provides benefits for medical expenses and a portion of lost wages due to injuries sustained while on the job.

    Employees might also have grounds to pursue additional claims against third parties if other entities or equipment failures played a role in the accident.
