Oftentimes, accidents involving a large vehicle like a dump truck may result in catastrophic injuries or even fatalities. A range of personal injuries may accompany a collision with a truck, and lead to mental trauma and injuries that may develop into permanent disabilities. Even experienced truck drivers may find it challenging to operate a large vehicle if the road is especially congested, the truck is improperly loaded or contains faulty parts that may affect the truck’s performance.
