garbage-truck-accident

Being injured in any type of vehicle accident can have significant and devastating consequences for the victim as well the family members of someone who is fatally injured. According to police in Secaucus, a 56-year-old man was fatally injured last week when he was hit by a garbage truck.  If you or someone you know has been injured in a similar accident, finding a lawyer to look into how to handle the case is important for protecting your rights and receiving compensation. An investigation of an accident like this should be completed immediately.

Unfortunately, garbage truck accidents are all too common and may raise concerns of negligence about who is responsible for the accident. The man was an employee of Allegro Sanitation and was a resident of Union City. He had his back to the truck at the time of the accident when it backed into him and ran him over. He was on company property in the sanitation yard when the accident happened. A current investigation has been launched by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

All work-related fatalities are investigated by OSHA. Unfortunately, garbage truck accidents can be especially problematic due to the size and the weight of the garbage trucks involved. Garbage truck accidents can involve other motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists.

Garbage trucks are especially dangerous because they are constantly stopping and starting and as well as backing over property. If someone is near the garbage truck at the time that it begins to move without the driver appropriately checking the field for possible people around, injuries and fatalities can occur. If you or someone you know has been seriously hurt in a garbage truck accident in New Jersey, you need to consult with an injury lawyer today.
