Crashes Involving Construction Vehicles

The vast majority of construction vehicle crashes take place in work zones, where injury rates occur at a much higher frequency. Of all fatal crashes in work zones, 41% were rear-end collisions, whereas rear-end collisions only account for 16% of fatalities anywhere else. An average of 85% of construction fatalities are occupants of regular passenger vehicles.

Accidents involving construction vehicles require investigative skills and the experience to know what to look for. Our staff is filled with insightful consultants and experts who understand the factors behind injury-causing accidents. With extensive trial experience, our attorneys are incredibly skilled at discovering the root causes of an accident and building a case around your story.

You can entrust your story to Kinnard Law because we offer:

  • Trusted Experience – We are seasoned litigators, with more trial experience than most lawyers accrue in their entire careers.
  • Proven Success – We have recovered millions for our clients in record-breaking verdicts and jury awards across Tennessee.
  • Dedication to Our Clients – Our firm cares personally about every client we’ve served; you are more than a case number to us.

OSHA Regulations for Construction Vehicles

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates construction vehicles. In Safety and Health Regulations for Construction, OSHA outlines rules for large trucks and other commercial construction vehicles. These regulations include things like requirements for emergency brakes, head and taillights, and audible warning devices.

Backover incidents are particularly a danger in the construction industry, so OSHA has standards particularly for backing. This includes regulations that prevent a driver from operating a vehicle with an obstructed view to the rear, backing up only when sounding warning alarm, and backing up only when an observer signals that it is safe to do so.
