A recent Tallahassee garbage truck accident has left a 73-year-old man dead. The true cause of this accident is unknown, but it appears as though the man struck the back of the garbage truck. The aftermath of this accident demonstrates just how devastating the damage was to the front of the man’s SUV, as well as the driver’s door. Pictures taken show that the driver of the SUV was outmatched by the strength of the garbage truck. There are numerous possibilities for why this accident occurred, and all possibilities will be thoroughly investigated. Authorities have confirmed that the driver of the garbage truck, who was not injured, had a clean driving record.
The truck accident attorneys of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano are often faced with accident cases that pose more questions than answers. Many clients call us and don’t know what steps to take moving forward. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate every potential client’s situation to help get those questions answered.
What Went Wrong?
Because many trucking accidents are a mystery at first, you may not know the answer to “what went wrong” until much later. In situations where one’s injuries or death are thought to have resulted from another’s conduct, an attorney can help to begin the process of reaching the ultimate goal of determining “what went wrong.” An attorney will start out with a list of possibilities that may have contributed to an accident, which include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Falling asleep at the wheel;
- Brake failure (among other vehicle failures);
- Inattentive driving; and
- Conduct of another driver involved in the accident.
Because the 73-year-old man collided into the back of a garbage truck, many of the questions are currently posed as to him. However, it is equally important to determine if the garbage truck in any way contributed to the accident. With the assistance of a skilled legal professional, many people can put the pieces back together and get a better understanding of what went wrong, and determine if anyone is to blame for the resulting injuries or death.
