Garbage Truck / Sanitation Truck Accidents
Garbage trucks may sometimes seem too slow to be a threat, but in all actuality, they pose a significant danger to passengers in other cars, pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as to other sanitation workers. Garbage trucks are actually responsible for more pedestrian and cyclist fatalities per 100 million miles than any other type of vehicle, according to “Right of Way”, a pedestrian safety group. Additionally, private garbage carrier trucks actually have a higher rate of fatal accidents than do city garbage trucks.

How Garbage Truck Accidents Happen
Sanitation trucks spend most of their time in residential neighborhoods; this is why they are such a threat to passenger cars, pedestrians and cyclists, who are in crosswalks, sidewalks and in driveways. Their huge size and significant lack of maneuverability can pose serious safety challenges. Add to that a dose of negligence or carelessness and an accident and the probabilities for injuries and the possibility for death can increase dramatically.

In metropolitan areas such as Dallas, garbage trucks and dump trucks injure and kill more pedestrians per mile traveled than any other vehicle. Garbage trucks often have blind spots on the side of the truck and almost always, no visibility of the rear of the truck exists, sans any working backup camera they might have.
When children and adults are behind a truck, they may make the mistake of not knowing the truck does not see them even though the truck has the responsibility to only back up when it is safe.
This is how many wrongful death garbage truck accidents occur. Garbage trucks spend the majority of their time in neighborhoods and rural areas; mix that with these visibility problems and you have a prescription for disaster in the form of an accident anywhere in Texas.
