Dump truck accident lawyers in West Palm Beach - our firm fights to protect the rights of the injured
Dump trucks are common on the roads and highways in Palm Beach County and throughout South Florida. Construction companies use them for projects to haul all sorts of material, including sand and asphalt. A fully loaded dump truck can be quite heavy, weighing as much as 65,000 pounds. You may have noticed that dump trucks have high bumpers or they are omitted for ground clearance. Unfortunately, an accident involving a passenger vehicle can lead to serious injuries, ranging from broken bones and amputation to brain and spinal cord injury. The front or rear of the vehicle may end up underneath the dump truck.
If you or a loved one was injured in a dump truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a dump truck accident lawyer in West Palm Beach today for a free consultation.

A closer look at dump truck accidents
Dump truck drivers, like all commercial vehicle operators, are held to a higher standard than a non-commercial driver. This is why it's important to discuss your rights with an attorney who is well versed in state and federal laws. The driver may have violated regulations or laws that you might not even be aware of.
In a dump truck accident, there may be more liable parties than just the driver. We can examine the role the driver's employer, the truck manufacturer, the contractor or other related parties may have played in the accident.
