Dump truck runs over a pedestrian at a travel center

On Behalf of | Oct 11, 2018 | Firm News, Truck Accidents

Many different types of trucks travel on the roads in Pennsylvania every day. These trucks are of various sizes and provide different services. However, they do have things in common. One obvious one is that they are much larger than most other vehicles on the road. Another is that the drivers of the trucks tend to have more blind spots due to the size of the vehicles. So, it is extra important that the drivers pay very close attention to their surroundings when they are driving.

Unfortunately the driver of a dump truck recently did not see a pedestrian when he was backing out of a gas pump. The driver hit the pedestrian and knocked him to the ground. The driver did not notice this and proceeded to back over the pedestrian while he was on the ground and then drive over him again when he drove the truck forward away from the pump. The pedestrian died at the scene as a result of his injuries.

This was a tragic truck accident that highlights the dangers that trucks can pose on the roads. This was unique though as it happened at a gas station. Many truck accidents occur on the highways and other roads when the trucks can be travelling at high rates of speed causing even more damage and potentially injuring or killing even more people. These accidents are obviously very devastating for the victims and their families both emotionally and financially. The victims and their families may be entitled to compensation though, which can at least ease the financial burdens associated with the accidents.

Unfortunately there are many truck accidents each year on Pennsylvania roads. These accidents can be very devastating for the victims and their families. They may be entitled to compensation for their losses, though. This will not bring back loved ones or heal the injuries caused by the accidents, but it can still be very valuable as the victims and their families recover. It is important that people receive what they deserve and consulting with an experienced attorney may be beneficial.
