What Are The Main Causes of Delivery Truck Accidents?
Companies like FedEx, DHL, Amazon, and UPS are busy around the clock. The delivery drivers for these companies are pressured to deliver more packages in shorter increments of time in our increasingly demanding society. Newly hired employees may not receive adequate training and support before they begin working long shifts. These factors can increase the likelihood that a delivery truck accident will occur.
Delivery truck accidents are often caused by the following factors:
- Distracted delivery drivers
- Negligent hiring by the delivery company
- Delivery trucks that are not properly maintained
- Delivery companies that do not adequately train drivers
- Delivery drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Delivery drivers who are fatigued
- Delivery trucks with defective or broken parts
Other motorists can face a long and costly road to recovery after a crash with a delivery truck - if they ever recover fully at all. These accident claims are often complex because the insurance companies representing the companies want to pay injured claimants as little as possible. The personal injury lawyers at Matthews Injury Law can fight for you and help you stand up to these large delivery companies and insurance companies.
UPS Delivery Truck Accidents
United Parcel Service is one of the largest delivery companies in the United States. UPS has more than 22,000 trailers and 5,900 vehicles. UPS drivers are trained to be as efficient as possible, but meeting strict deadlines can force UPS drivers to drive recklessly. Speeding and driver fatigue are two factors that increase the risk of serious UPS delivery truck accidents.
FedEx Delivery Truck Accidents
FedEx delivery truck drivers are involved in a significant number of accidents across the country. FedEx is a company that often challenges delivery truck injury claims. The company may try to deny liability or not accept fault for the accident. The attorneys representing FedEx may try to use legal tactics to try to force you to accept less than you deserve or give up on your legal claims.
