Concrete trucks transport water, cement, and construction materials. They may weigh up to 70,000 pounds, which make them more dangerous than passenger vehicles on the road. Additionally, the contents of these vehicles pose a hazard if their contents are dumped onto the roadway. Collisions with concrete trucks are often severe.
If you or a loved one was injured in an accident involving a concrete mixer, a Jacksonville concrete truck lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine is here to help. You can call us at 1-800-747-3733 to speak with a member of our team about your potential claim.
We Will Help You Regardless of the Cause of Your Concrete Truck Accident
Concrete truck accidents can be caused by a number of various factors, including:
- Distracted driving
- Mismanagement by trucking subcontractors
- Careless or reckless operation of vehicles
Because of the weight and difficulty of driving this type of vehicle, a small driver error can result in substantial consequences. A fully loaded truck will take much longer to stop than an average passenger vehicle, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Therefore, if a hazard appears, a truck driver may not have enough time to stop or slow down safely, which can result in the trucker slamming on their brakes and potentially tipping over. The concrete that is spilled on the road can lead to possible accidents.
These accidents are often serious, so it is important that you have someone protecting your legal rights while you focus on your recovery. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today to stand up for your rights at 1-800-747-3733.
