Lee’s Summit Trash Truck Accident Attorney


Have you been injured in Lee’s Summit in an accident involving a Trash Truck? If so, then you should speak with an attorney familiar with Trash Truck Accident law. You have certain rights that can be asserted in any Trash Truck accident case.  A personal injury attorney will be able to assist you in determining what rights you have and may assert in given case.


Trash Trucks are large vehicles that often are required to maneuver in tight spots.  This can lead to accidents with other vehicles or pedestrians. Trash Trucks, although they often travel through residential areas during off hours, can still be travelling through a neighborhood at times when children are out and about.  For example, children waiting at a school bus stop.


Children are often unaware of the dangers around them. Children often engage in play or horseplay that may lead them to literally play in the street in front of a Trash Truck.  Trash trucks due to their bulk may have trouble stopping quickly. That is why it is doubly important for drivers of Trash Trucks to maintain a careful lookout while travelling through residential areas.  If a driver fails to do that, then he or she should be held accountable for any accidents he or she causes.

In other situations, persons may be injured not by the Trash Truck itself, but by items the trash truck was supposed to be picking up or transporting.  Trash can fall off a trash truck and cause an accident with vehicles behind it or going in the opposite direction of it.


A good personal injury lawyer will be able to review the facts of a particular case and determine where the fault is likely to lie.  In the long run, a good personal injury lawyer will be an advantage to the personal injury client and will directly impact the client’s bottom line in terms of real money that can be awarded for the client’s damages including pain and suffering.  Make no mistake Trash Truck Companies, including any over the road garbage haulers, will fight hard to resist paying out on claims against them.  You need a good lawyer to maximize your recovery.
