Negligent Garbage Truck Drivers & Employers
Most garbage truck accidents are preventable situations that often result from the negligent operation of a garbage truck. Sanitation truck drivers are subject to enhanced safety regulations.

Causes of Garbage Truck Accidents
Garbage truck accidents arise in a number of situations that are unique to the trash collection and rubbish industry. Most large trucks don’t find themselves in the midst of suburban neighborhoods, but garbage trucks will make their way through residential areas on a routine schedule. Common causes of garbage truck accidents include:
Lack of Maneuverability
Failing to Yield
Damages You May Receive
