Construction Truck Accidents and Your Injuries
The size and weight of construction trucks can cause catastrophic injuries to other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. A common occurrence on many construction sites is that of dump trucks.
Dump trucks are convenient for transport. A dump truck can weigh thousands of pounds and up to several tons, depending on its load. Other types of trucks that commonly travel to and from a construction job site include:
- Water trucks
- Concrete mixer trucks
- Truck cranes
- Roll-off trucks with removable containers
- Manipular trucks used for such work as excavations on construction sites
Most construction or other types of professional trucks, the driver must possess a commercial driver’s license (CDL), as per the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). The skills of the driver combined with regular truck maintenance, are essential for everyone’s safety.
If you suffered serious injuries due to a construction truck accident, a Tampa construction truck lawyer from Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help you with a civil claim and lawsuit. To learn if you may have a case, call us today for a free case evaluation: (813) 879-3719.
Additional Dangers Associated with Construction Truck Accidents
Construction truck accidents can result in additional harm due to the scattering of their load. A dump truck filled with boards, sand, rocks, or other construction materials can spill its load, causing additional injuries to others.
Examples of some of the types of serious injuries possible in truck accidents include:
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Cuts and abrasions from debris

You Have a Short Period to Pursue Compensation
Time is of the essence when it comes to pursuing compensation for your damages. State law allows four years for personal injury cases. This may sound like a long time when in fact, it can pass quickly.
If the time passes before you file, you generally have no further legal options. It is important to not miss the deadline for filing your case.
With so much on your mind, it is best to secure legal representation and to let your lawyer manage your case. They can oversee important details, like those of legal deadlines.
Failure to act now can cause you to have to pay later for your medical care all by yourself. When your injuries are the result of another person’s negligence, do not delay retaining a lawyer from Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers.
