While you deal with the burden of your injuries, the responsible parties like to cover their tracks behind the scenes. This means that important evidence about your accident can disappear and innocent victims get taken advantage of. You can prevent this from happening to you by hiring a garbage truck accident lawyer to handle your case. An experienced lawyer will get logbooks and other information from the garbage truck company immediately so that you have the evidence needed for a strong claim. These are details that can be overlooked if you try and take legal action on your own. Gathering the proper evidence will give you the best opportunity to recover the maximum compensation available to you by law so that you can get relief from your physical and financial damages.
A complication that makes garbage truck accidents more frustrating is the fact that many garbage trucks are owned, or partially owned, by municipalities or government entities. This can act to shield garbage truck companies from liability after accidents. It takes an experienced attorney to know how to deal with this kind of situation so that those responsible for your injuries pay. If you are dealing with a private garbage truck company, government immunity may not be an issue, but you can be sure that there will be multiple parties involved that will complicate your claim, from the driver to the owner of the company. The seasoned garbage truck accident lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP are the right team to sort out all of the details in your case so that the liable parties pay you what you need for your injuries.

About Garbage Truck Accidents
In most places around the country, garbage trucks are operated by municipalities, which can make it difficult for injured victims to recover compensation for their injuries. Here in New York, municipal garbage operators service residential trash collection, but private garbage collection companies aggressively compete for commercial business. This means that the fastest performing collectors make the most money, but unfortunately, speed often jeopardizes safety. With garbage truck accidents on a steady rise in the five-borough area, it is time to hold all garbage operators accountable for the pain and suffering they cause to accident victims. If you or a loved one has been injured by a garbage truck, Hach & Rose, LLP can help you track down the liable parties so that you can seek maximum compensation for your injuries as allowed by law.
Garbage trucks can be many different designs and sizes, and depending on their load, weigh between 16,000-18,000 pounds. The large size and weight factor of these vehicles mean that accidents can be very serious and even fatal. Impact with other vehicles or pedestrians can cause a multitude of injuries, including:
- Broken Bones

If you or a loved one suffers from any of these types of injuries due to the negligence of a garbage truck driver, please seek legal assistance from a New York garbage truck attorney to get the help you need.
