Isaacs & Isaacs Lawyers for Trash Truck Accidents

Many victims of garbage truck accidents are killed, or suffer a serious injury which leaves them permanently disabled. In order to recover maximum damages from the government or private garbage collection provider, you must prove that negligence or a wrongful act on the part of the trash collector/company caused the accident. This may be difficult to do if you’re laid up with serious injuries or are grieving the death of a family member.

You don’t have to go through this alone. Our skilled truck accident attorneys have the experience and resources to do a thorough investigation to determine what caused the accident and which parties are liable. In most cases, the stronger the evidence, the more the other side will offer to settle and prevent a lengthy, expensive and unpredictable court trial. Especially if the accident was due to gross negligence or a criminal act.
