Common Types of Construction Vehicle Accidents

Construction vehicle accidents can happen due to a wide range of reasons. Liability is often determined by the type of accident in which the victim was involved.

The following are the most common types of construction vehicle accidents:

  • Driver error – Operators of construction vehicles need to be properly trained and understand how to maneuver these vehicles as safely as possible. If a construction vehicle driver operates the vehicle recklessly or fails to pay attention to their surroundings due to distractions or drowsiness, accidents often occur.
  • Employer misconduct – There are many instances where employers put the company’s needs above the employees, demanding them to work extra hours or without breaks to get the job done on time or earlier. Accidents typically happen when an employer fails to adhere to federal and/or state regulations.
  • The vehicle isn’t properly maintained – Construction companies are required to inspect and maintain their vehicles to ensure they are in proper order. If a vehicle experiences a malfunction due to the lack of maintenance, it can result in a serious accident.
  • The vehicle isn’t properly loaded – Failure to secure cargo or equipment on a construction vehicle can result in the cargo flying while the vehicle is in motion.

If the victim is a construction worker and the injury occurred during the scope of his/her employment, Texas workers’ compensation benefits are available to injured workers, providing them with benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages. However, if the injuries were caused by a third party such as a manufacturer of a defective machine or another worker from a different company that was operating the machine, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the party to also recover non-economic damages, including pain and suffering.
