Holding Delivery Truck Drivers Accountable for Truck Accidents

Boston Truck Accidents, Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Attorneys

Delivery Truck Accident AttorneysEvery day, thousands of delivery trucks—from the U.S Postal Service, UPS and Fed Ex, among other companies—travel the length and breadth of Massachusetts. Because of the nature of the overnight-shipping business, the drivers of these trucks are often under intense pressure to complete a certain number of deliveries every day.

Untrained or frazzled drivers may not only be tempted to speed, but to cut corners when it comes to basic safety: neglecting to engage the parking brake, for example, causing the vehicle to roll down a sloped road, or backing up when they’ve passed a house rather than taking the time to go around the block.

Shipping companies like UPS and Fed Ex have a responsibility to properly train their drivers, to keep their trucks in good working condition, and to give their employees realistic daily quotas so as not to encourage the dangerous driving behaviors detailed above.
