Accidents involving big construction trucks occur frequently. These dangerous trucks can cause serious wrecks while traveling back and forth to a construction site or as other vehicles pass a road construction site. They can and do injure and kill construction workers at work sites. These big, potentially lethal trucks include:
Construction Truck and Trailer Accidents Due to Negligence
Construction trucks are harder to maneuver and have poor visibility. If the person operating a construction truck is not properly trained, an accident could result in serious injury or death to construction site workers and occupants of other vehicles on or around the construction truck.
Lack of training isn’t the only thing that could cause an accident. Construction dump trucks have been known to crash into other vehicles because of a mechanical failure such as malfunctioning brakes. These trucks, along with semi-tractor trailers are the leaders in causing backover accidents due to poor visibility and lack of or malfunctioning safety alarms.
Other trucks like cherry pickers and forklifts have a huge potential to cause injury and death if they are not maintained up to safety standards and operated by well trained, alert drivers. Federal Highway Administration statistics on fatal accidents involving road construction trucks show that for 80 percent of these fatalities, the driver of the other, smaller vehicle is killed. Many of these horrific accidents could be prevented if operators were properly trained and the trucks and work zones kept up to federal safety standards.
