Typical waste disposal truck accidents
The most common waste disposal truck accidents that people seek help with are:
- Falling off the side of a moving truck.
- Being crushed against a wall or another vehicle by a reversing truck.
- Being caught in the grabbing mechanism of a truck.
- Being hit by material falling from a truck.
- Being struck by the truck as it drives along.
Most victims of accidents like this are people who work in the waste disposal industry, but other road users and pedestrians can also be hurt. If the accident wasn’t your fault, if it happened within the last three years and if you were subsequently treated by a doctor, you could be entitled to compensation.
What can compensation do?
Compensation packages are worked out in accordance with the injured person’s needs. This means that if you’ve been left with severe injuries you can expect to receive more money to help you cope with their impact on your life. If you are unable to work, either temporarily or permanently, compensation can help to cover your loss of earnings. If you’ve been badly traumatised or you are having trouble adjusting to a more limited life, compensation can potentially fund the counselling to help you to cope, and it could also help you with the cost of adapting your home to make it easier to deal with a physical disability.
