Delivery Truck Accidents

Delivery Truck Accidents

When the Rush to Deliver Leads to Serious Injuries

Delivery truck drivers are always in a hurry to meet deadlines and arrive on time. Most delivery trucks are multiple times larger and heavier than other vehicles, and collisions can result in devastating property damage and bodily injury for pedestrians other drivers, if not death. Drivers are usually under significant pressure from their employers, which can lead to inattention, reckless behavior on the road, and costly injury to others.

Damages Stemming from Delivery Truck Accidents

If you are hit by a delivery truck, you could sustain serious injuries, such as:

  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Spinal injuries
  • Paralysis

Such injuries can decrease your ability to work, support your loved ones, save for retirement, and otherwise inhibit your ability to remain financially stable. They can also prevent you from engaging in exercise, social events, and other enriching activities, thus dramatically decreasing your quality of life. When negligent driving causes such extensive damage, the responsible parties may be held accountable in a court of law.

Liability for Delivery Truck Accidents

When injured persons file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible driver, they are likely to encounter complex liability issues, depending on the delivery service in question. Companies like the United Parcel Service (UPS) and FedEx are routinely involved in accidents that result in death for pedestrians and other drivers, but it may be difficult to determine whether an accident is the responsibility of the driver or the company as a whole.

Both UPS and FedEx are subject to government regulations put into place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These require delivery services to institute and adhere to strict safety protocol, which include:

  • Mandatory recording of drivers during service hours
  • Routine maintenance and prompt repairs for trucks
  • Drug and alcohol education and preventative programs for drivers
  • Driving training and competency requirements

If you were hit by a delivery truck driver, your accident may have been caused by negligent hiring practices, insufficient driver training, inadequate truck maintenance, or another error by the company. However, it could also be the direct result of the driver’s negligence while operating a dangerous motor vehicle. In order to successfully establish liability, you will need the help of an experience car accident lawyer.
