Coal trucks are large diesel trucks that typically have enormous carts or open-box beds used to transport large amounts of coal. The phrase “rolling coal” has also been used to describe truck drivers who knowingly emit large plumes of black smoke.
In October 2015, the Los Angeles Times reported that multiple online retailers sold kits designed to modify the emissions control systems installed by Ram, Ford, and GMC trucks, to the dismay of truck manufacturers and clean air experts. The Times noted that several videos on YouTube demonstrate truck drivers targeting bicyclists and pedestrians, and as recently as April 2019 the Fresno Bee reported that protesters were being targeted by trucks rolling coal.

If a truck driver is rolling coal, they may be trying to anger other drivers. They could also be failing to pay attention to other important considerations relating to the road.
Simply put, rolling coal is a kind of distraction that is no different from a driver talking or texting on a cell phone. If a driver causes a crash while or immediately after rolling coal, their attention being paid to the trigger could be evidence of their negligence as it relates to the accident.
Other common causes of coal truck accidents include, but are not limited to:
The actual kind of crash that a coal truck can cause varies depending on the specific circumstances, with some crashes being rear-end accidents, T-bone collisions, head-on crashes, rollover accidents, or other kinds of collisions.
The May Firm will be of assistance to you by investigating your accident and preserving all of the evidence needed to prove another party’s negligence. Our firm will also be able to determine every party who can be held liable.
Truck drivers rarely have the personal automobile insurance limits needed to cover the damages involved in a coal truck accident, but fortunately the actual owner of the truck is usually liable in such cases. Certain cases could involve other liable parties, like a negligent maintenance company or part manufacturer.

Recovery from coal truck accidents can be a long and agonizing process. Some victims may have injuries that require full-time, around-the-clock care.
The lives of these victims are frequently turned upside down as they face continuing medical bills while they are not able to go back to work. Some injuries leave victims with little to no hope of ever being able to hold a job again.
Injuries people could suffer in coal truck accidents include, but are not limited to:
Some people will die in coal truck crashes. Family members of the deceased persons can usually file wrongful death lawsuits, but insurance companies will try to resolve these cases through lump sum settlements.
Settlement offers are very common in all coal truck accident cases, but many people quickly learn that their settlements will be depleted very quickly. The unfortunate consequence of the settlement is the person has no legal recourse for all of their future medical bills, which they now must pay out of their own pocket.
If you sustained catastrophic injuries or your loved one was killed in a coal truck accident in California, you deserve to be compensated for all of your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The May Firm can come to your home or hospital room if you cannot come to our office.
