New York City Jobsite Trucking Accidents
By Jonathan Damashek
It is a normal everyday occurrence to have numerous trucks traveling to and from a job site. These trucks carry necessities to get the job done; everything from gravel is taken away from the site, glass is brought in, heavy lumber, rocks and other various forms of heavy equipment leave and enter construction sites every hour. Although this is a regular event at jobsites, if someone improperly loads a truck, a driver encounters uneven ground or a driver is negligent, serious accidents can occur. In these situations, it is crucial that a New York City personal injury attorney from our firm be contacted at once.
With busy sites, lots of people bustling and different contractors operating to load and unload cargo trucks, accidents causing injuries can occur. If a truck is poorly loaded, with an unsecure load or an uneven load, the truck may tip or spill its belongings. It is possible that drivers can encounter uneven ground and causeways on a construction site, resulting in the truck tipping over and losing their cargo as well. Untrained, poorly trained and negligent drivers can cause accidents and flip-overs. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a jobsite truck accident, you have rights.
