Dump Truck Accident Attorey

Davis Law Group has experience handling dump truck accident cases involving both motor vehicle crashes and pedestrian accidents. 

Because dump trucks are so large and heavy the do not operate the same way as other vehicles and are much more difficult to maneuver.  Dump truck s have very large blind spots and other difficulties that can make it difficult for the operator to safely drive the vehicle in reverse.  Additionally, drivers are under a great deal of pressure to deliver their loads on time.  And, as with all vehicles, distracted driving caused by an operator using a handheld mobile device also creates an increasing challenge and risk.

If you or a family member has been injured in an accident involving a dump truck please contact Davis Law Group at 206-727-4000 for a free legal consultation.
