Cement Truck Accident Lawyer
Cement trucks are a crucial part of construction. They are used to lay down building foundations, create roads and sidewalks, and much more. But when a cement truck is involved in a wreck, the effects can be severe. These trucks themselves weigh 20,000 to 30,000 pounds. On top of that, many can carry up to 40,000 pounds of cement.
When a cement pump truck weighing up to 70,000 pounds collides with a car weighing about 3,000 pounds, the truck is going to win just about every time. Cement mixer trucks generally have to stay below a certain speed, even on the highway. But even at 55 miles per hour, a collision with a passenger car can destroy the car and lead to severe, and sometimes fatal, injuries.
While there are no nationwide statistics regarding cement pump truck accidents, it’s safe to say that fatal and non-fatal cement truck accidents happen each year.
Because of the size of a cement truck, drivers of other drivers may be seriously injured in an accident with a cement truck. When this happens, drivers may become too injured to work and may have medical bills pile up. If you are injured in a cement truck accident caused by the actions of the truck driver, you may be entitled to compensation. At Auger & Auger, we have over 26 years of experience helping truck accident victims get the compensation they deserve.
