Call a truck accident attorney right now and put us to work for you after a crash.

How Can a Virginia Dump Truck Accident Lawyer Help?

As soon as you hire us, we move right into investigating the facts of your accident. It is our responsibility to figure out who's negligence caused your injuries. This is our requirement, as we (the claimant or Plaintiff) have the burden of proof.

There can be many different parts to a dump truck accident case. As we said, sometimes someone other than the driver can be responsible for your accident. For example, it's the vehicle has not received the proper maintenance, or the brakes have not been replaced, then you may have a claim against the people that failed to do what was required to properly maintain that truck. If the contents of the truck were improperly loaded, and the shifting of that load caused your accident, then the people who loaded the truck might be responsible.

If the dump truck that caused your accident was owned by the government, any layer of the government, then a whole new level of complexity is added to the case. In order to pursue a claim against a city or county government vehicle, notice is required. Notice is governed by Virginia Code 15.2-209.

If you have been in a dump truck accident that was not your fault, you need to call an attorney right away. There are deadlines that are beginning to run, and in some cases, waiting to hire a lawyer can be fatal to your claim.
