Pickup Truck Wrecks
A pickup truck can be the culprit in any type of automobile accident. They can be involved in side impact collisions, rear end collisions and head-on accidents. Pickup trucks can also cause accidents that regular passenger vehicles cannot cause. Such as accidents that are caused by debris flying from the bed of the truck, swerving trailer accidents and trailer disconnect accidents. These can all happen seemingly out of the blue and can result in severe, catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries. If you, or a loved one has been the victim of a Delaware County pickup truck accident please contact an experienced accident lawyer at the Law Office of Deborah M. Truscello.
Accidents Unique to Pickup Trucks
Unsecured Items and Flying Debris Accidents: Pickup trucks are very useful and very functional vehicles for those in the contractor, home renovation and home remodeling business. The bed of the trucks are spacious and can house tools, equipment, ladders and other essentials. The bed of the truck can also become a mobile trash can with coffee cups, food wrappers and other garbage being thrown into the back of the truck. If any of these items fly out of the truck bed an accident can occur.
Swerving Trailers or Trailer Disconnect Accidents: Part of the appeal of a pickup truck is its functionality, particularly its towing capacity. Pickup trucks can tow trailers, motorcycles, boats and rental storage trailers such as U-Haul trailers. If the driver of the pickup truck drives recklessly or in a hurried fashion the trailer can swerve behind the pickup truck and drift into another lane causing an accident. If the trailer should become disconnected from the pickup truck a serious accident can also result.
