Warshafsky Sues for Spinal Injury Caused by Street Sweeper Rollover Accident

Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawsuit Forces Manufacturer to Implement Safer Design

Rollover accidents are extremely dangerous, whether you’re in a car, truck, or even a street sweeper. In 2006, a city of Milwaukee street sweeper rolled over, causing a crushing spine injury to the driver. The man and his family chose our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys to investigate the circumstances of the accident and get the maximum compensation for his injuries.

The street sweeper, manufactured by Elgin, did not have even a simple driver protection system. A roll bar or cab would have protected the driver and perhaps prevented his life-changing spinal injury. Warshafsky lawyer Victor Harding sued Elgin for product liability, getting a large sum of money in financial compensation for the victim. Because of the lawsuit, Elgin included roll bar protection in their street sweepers.

But the story doesn’t end there.

Street Sweeper Tip-Over Lawsuit Changes Outcome of Future Accident

Street Sweeper Injury Lawsuit MilwaukeeIt’s not often we get to see the fruits of our labor so close to home: in October of 2015, Milwaukee news stations reported on a similar rollover accident with another Elgin street sweeper in Milwaukee. This time, though, there was a happy ending. Thanks to the roll bar and cab these machines now have, the driver was not flung from the sweeper and sustained only minor injuries.

In the most recent incident, a 20,000 lb. Milwaukee city street sweeper was perched precariously on its side with the driver trapped inside the cab. In news stories, you could see the man lying sideways in the cab. Fortunately, he had a phone with him and was able to call 911. Once rescue workers stabilized the truck, they were able extract the driver.
