Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Protect The Rights Of Pittsburgh Dump Truck Accident Victims 

Any type of accident can result in injury. But when the accident involves a dump truck, the injuries can be serious.

Dump trucks are large, heavy vehicles. And when they are carrying heavy cargo, moving construction materials or debris, and they have an accident with another vehicle or an individual, the result can be catastrophic.

Experienced accident injury lawyers at Goodrich & Geist, P.C. protect the rights of dump truck accident victims. Our team shares more than 50 years of combined experience, a firm commitment to fighting for justice, and a demonstrated track record of success in recovering compensation for dump truck accident victims in Pennsylvania.

Common Causes Of Pittsburgh Dump Truck Accidents

Dump trucks are involved in commercial construction, residential construction, road maintenance and repair, bridge construction, and other roadwork. As highways deteriorate and the building industry grows, dump trucks have become a regular presence on Pennsylvania roadways.

Dump truck accidents may be caused by any number of factors, but the following are the more common causes of Pittsburgh dump truck accidents:

Because dump trucks are large, heavy vehicles, when an accident occurs, the injuries are often severe. In some instances, the construction materials or debris that is being transported by the dump truck falls, causing an accident with another vehicle or individual.

Pittsburgh Dump Truck Accident Victims May Be Eligible To Receive Compensation For Their Injuries And Other Losses

Accidents that are caused by negligent actions on the part of another individual or entity fall under the domain of personal injury law. Personal injury law protects injured victims and provides a mechanism for those victims to receive compensatory damages. These damages may include — but not be limited to — any of the following losses:

Certain losses do not have an assigned monetary value, such as the loss of one’s life enjoyment. In determining the value of these immeasurable losses, the Pennsylvania court will consider several different factors to assign a financial value to those losses.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dump Truck Accidents In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

FAQ: I was involved in a dump truck accident and the truck’s insurance adjuster asked to speak with me. Should I talk to them?

If you or a loved one has been involved in a dump truck accident, the first person you should speak to about your accident should be an experienced personal injury attorney, not the at-fault party’s insurance adjuster. The insurance company is acting in their own self-interests, not yours. And speaking to them directly without the advice of legal counsel is never a good idea. A skilled accident injury attorney who has experience handling dump truck accident claims can review your claim and advise you of your legal options. The accident attorneys at Goodrich & Geist, P.C. offer a free case evaluation to accident victims — we will assess the merits of your case, advise you of your rights, discuss the compensation you may recover, and explain the steps involved in the claims process. Accident victims can arrange for a free case evaluation by contacting our office.

FAQ: I suffered an injury in a dump truck accident and the dump truck driver is claiming the accident is partly my fault. What can I do?

When there is an accident, it is not uncommon for the at-fault party to claim that the injured party is partly to blame for the accident. And, in some cases, more than one person is, in fact, responsible. It is best to not discuss the accident with the dump truck driver, their insurance company, or anyone else other than your accident attorney. A skilled personal injury attorney will review the evidence in the case, and negotiate with the other parties on your behalf.
