Garbage Truck Accidents
Cumbersome trash or garbage trucks, waste disposal trucks and recycling trucks storm through busy California neighborhoods on a daily basis. Along the way, these 30-ton trucks are moving erratically, stopping and starting as they pick up trash bins. The drivers must adhere to a tight schedule, but they also have to navigate streets surrounded by other motorists that may suddenly back out of driveways or dodge pedestrians and bicyclists moving in and out of their blind spots.
Determining liability for an injury or fatality crash involving a garbage or recycling truck can be complicated because they often deal with government entities or independent operations have contracts with local governments. In these cases, a lawsuit must be filed under tighter deadlines to ensure the statute of limitations does not expire.
