Seasoned North Dakota Truck Accident Attorneys Fighting for Justice
Holding negligent utility truck drivers and companies responsible for the serious injuries and deaths they cause
Utility trucks are large trucks that are used by linemen, cable installers, and a number of other utility businesses. From water and sewage trucks to street sweepers and snowplows, these large vehicles generally include specialty equipment, which makes them especially dangerous when involved in a roadway accident.
The experienced North Dakota truck accident lawyers at the Larson Law Firm P.C. have seen the damage a utility truck can cause to innocent victims. That is why we fight to help injured victims get the compensation they deserve from negligent drivers and utility companies. We go after insurance and utility companies to hold them responsible for medical costs, your time lost from work, and your pain and suffering, amongst other damages suffered from these accidents. Our legal team is compassionate to your needs, helping you through the legal process with empathy while aggressively pursuing your interests against negligent parties.
Trusted representation against utility truck negligence
At the Larson Law Firm, we have seen accidents involving various types of utility trucks, including:
- Cable company trucks
- Electrical company trucks
- Tree felling trucks (also known as boom trucks or cherry pickers)
- Lawn care trucks
- Construction trucks, including bulldozers, tractors, and cranes
- Oilfield trucks
We have also helped clients injured by other types of specialty trucks used by contractors, including plumbers, spray foam insulators, painters, and more.
These commercial trucks can include specialty tools that increase the risk for serious injury, such as large blades that can slice through a vehicle or electrical components that can shock or burn passengers. Accidents with these trucks can lead to serious injuries, like paralysis or the loss of a limb. The most serious accidents can even lead to death.
Common causes of utility truck accidents
Driver error is the most common cause of utility truck accidents. Drivers often operate these vehicles at speeds higher than what is reasonably safe for the roadway. They may also fail to properly survey their surroundings before moving a piece of equipment or move the equipment too quickly. Operating a utility truck under the influence or without having had enough sleep is also an act of negligence.
When pursuing a settlement for your injuries, our knowledgeable team of lawyers works to prove fault in the case. To do so, we call on forensic specialists, safety experts, and eyewitnesses to determine what steps the driver made to lead to the accident. Our legal team leaves no stone unturned in our pursuit of justice for your injuries.
