Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery trucks are prone to accidents for a variety of factors, including their size, their limited maneuvering ability, faults on behalf of the driver, and road and traffic conditions. Getting involved in an accident with a delivery truck can cause serious physical harm and could cost a fortune in medical bills and treatment.
Some of the causes of delivery truck accidents include:
· Truck driver inexperience
· Truck driver fatigue
· Truck driver is under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
· Poor or dangerous road conditions
· Adverse weather conditions
· Rushing to meet delivery deadlines
· Double parking
· Running into parked cars or pedestrians
· Trucks backing up and harming others in the process
Some of these situations involve negligence on the driver’s part, while other reasons suggest other liable parties, such as the driver’s employer for placing pressure on the driver to speed up to meet delivery deadlines, or government entities for not providing proper maintenance of road conditions.
Liability in Delivery Truck Accidents
When you have been injured in a truck accident, your health is a pressing issue and you do not have time to waste. However, without the proper legal resources available to you by an experienced Personal Injury Attorney, your chances of attaining a fair settlement are significantly lowered. This is because of the insurance companies and other parties with a vested interest in keeping payouts low specialize in arguing against claims like these, and more often than not are successful in having your case dismissed or settled unfairly.
Parties that may be held liable for delivery truck accidents include the truck driver, the driver’s employer, and possible government entities involved in the maintenance of road construction.
