The Seriousness Of Delivery Truck Accidents

Delivery trucks are a common sight on our streets. Packages, flowers, take-away food and groceries are all brought by delivery trucks these days. Unfortunately, the drivers of these delivery trucks are not always careful as they rush to their next delivery point. If you have been seriously injured in an accident caused by a delivery truck, you should not have to bear the expense of medical bills and lost wages. Instead, the driver and his or her company should be held responsible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Delivery Truck Accidents

We expect our clients to have questions after they have been in a wreck with a delivery vehicle. Below are some answers to a few of the most essential questions.

Who is responsible for a delivery truck accident?

It depends on the situation. The delivery driver may certainly be liable if they were distracted, intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, speeding or otherwise not obeying traffic laws. Another driver may also have contributed to the wreck, especially in situations where multiple vehicles collide. The delivery company or the driver’s employer is also frequently a defendant in these claims since they are responsible for their driver’s behavior.

What is the process of determining responsibility for a delivery truck accident?

It takes a thorough investigation to determine who is responsible for accidents involving delivery vehicles. Your attorney and the insurance companies involved may look at things like the police report, photographic evidence, witness statements, traffic or dash cam footage, and analyses by accident reproduction experts, among other things to help determine where liability lies and to what degree.

Can I sue Amazon for a truck accident?

Like many other companies, Amazon hires some of its drivers as independent contractors, while others work for Amazon directly. That – and Amazon’s general reluctance to accept responsibility for wrecks involving its delivery drivers – can make it challenging to determine when Amazon may be liable. It usually takes an experienced evaluation to determine when Amazon should be listed as a defendant in a claim.

When you have questions, it is always better to ask an attorney directly. That way, you can get more specific information that is directly relevant to your claim.
