Causes of Delivery Vehicle Accidents

Delivery vehicle drivers must drive safely and follow all rules of the road. In addition to these typical precautions, delivery vehicle drivers are responsible for adhering to safety measures that are specific to their profession. For example, they must make sure their vehicle is properly loaded and that they are following industry regulations. When delivery truck drivers and their employers are negligent, accidents can result.

Some common causes of delivery vehicle accidents include:

  • Reckless driving
  • Driver inexperience
  • Driver fatigue
  • Negligent hiring and training
  • Road conditions
  • Vehicle defects and inadequate vehicle maintenance
  • Improperly loaded or dangerous cargo
  • Safety violations

Who is Liable for My Delivery Vehicle Accident?

The aftermath of a delivery vehicle accident can be confusing for victims. Many people who are injured in delivery vehicle collisions are unsure about the involvement and liability of the delivery company in their case, and how the individual liability of the driver will factor in.

Delivery companies are responsible for the operations of their drivers. When a driver is involved in a collision, the cause can frequently be traced back to the negligence of the business they drive for.

Regardless of the direct responsibility of a company for your collision, they will likely be involved in your case. There are some cases in which a victim may need to negotiate with a delivery driver’s personal insurance company. Our delivery vehicle accident lawyers in Long Island can provide answers on how your case will proceed.

Delivery Vehicle Accident Evidence

Although the presence of a delivery company can be intimidating in a collision case, their involvement can allow for more available evidence that can be used to help your claim.

Businesses — especially large companies like Amazon, UPS, and FedEx — are required to keep extensive records of their operations and comply with legal industry regulations. These records can provide insight into company negligence and safety violations.

The following items may be available as evidence in your delivery vehicle accident case:

  • Photographs
  • Medical records
  • Bills
  • Surveillance footage
  • Hiring documents
  • Trip logs
  • Misconduct records
  • Safety violation records
