Our job is to build a a winning bicycle accident lawsuit by proving the garbage or dump truck driver caused the crash by driving in a careless or reckless way. Did the truck driver have the right-of-way? Was he distracted? Was a turn too wide? Did he look before backing up? These drivers are charged under the law to use extreme caution, and when they do not, people can die or be left with life altering injuries.
When a garbage truck driver was at fault for the accident, the owner of the vehicle, the driver, and others may be liable. If you hire our law firm, our attorneys will help you determine who to sue by analyzing the facts of accident and company documents.
Don’t try go this alone. These companies and their insurance companies generally refuse to settle a case if there is any question of fault in a bicycle accident wrongful death case. Our lawyers hire top experts to analyze the wreckage and reconstruct the accident to prove that the garbage truck driver was at fault. We carry this expense until the case is resolved, and we are not paid by you unless we win your case.
