Garbage Truck Accidents

Garbage trucks are deployed throughout different cities in Florida on many different days. Garbage truck drivers have a job to do and sometimes forget about the dangers and consequences that go along with driving something so large.

There are many causes of garbage truck accidents in Florida, including:

  • Backing up unexpectedly
  • Defective back up signals
  • Brake failure
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Running a stop sign
  • Making a turn too quickly
  • Texting while driving
  • Participating in other distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving

When a garbage truck makes a turn without looking for pedestrians, bicyclists, or other vehicles, the results can be catastrophic. Additionally, another way people often get hurt is when garbage trucks back into them – sometimes caused from broken warning signals.

The injuries pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists receive when involved in a garbage truck accident in South Florida can be devastating. Injuries may include:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Death
