Delivery Truck Driver Accident Claims Attorneys

Delivery drivers are always on the move and are forced to meet tight delivery deadlines. However, delivery drivers drive for a living and in many cases they are injured in an accident that is not their fault.

There are a number of ways in which delivery drivers are injured. Some of the most common accidents in which delivery drivers are involved in include the following:

  • Accidents caused by Mirror Blind Spots
  • Drivers who fail to yield
  • Drivers who operate a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Lifting injuries due to loading or unloading heavy objects from vehicles.
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Some recent examples of how delivery driver accidents have occurred include the following:

  • In 2017, a motor vehicle driver came to a stop inside a Domino’s Pizza. The driver experienced cuts and lacerations as a result of this accident.
  • In 2017, a UPS driver in Nevada was involved in a vehicle rollover.
  • In 2016, a FedEx driver was killed after the vehicle overturned in California.
  • In 2016, a delivery truck driver in Virginia lost control of the motor vehicle, over corrected the vehicle, and eventually collided with another automobile that was traveling in the opposing direction. The driver experienced minor injuries due to this accident

Precautions to Help Delivery Truck Drivers Avoid Accidents on the Job

There are some safety precautions that delivery truck drivers can take to avoid being involved in an accident, which include the following precautions:

  • Be Cautious of Blind Spots. Blind spots refer to areas near a vehicle that a motor vehicle operator cannot spot. These areas include just behind a vehicle’s side mirrors and directly behind trucks. Each year, a large number of delivery truck accidents are caused by drivers who fail to adequately monitor blind spots.
  • Make Sure That the Delivery Vehicle Is Adequately Maintained. The consistent stops taken by many delivery vehicles can be particularly tough on the vehicle. Employers need adequately maintain their fleet of vehicles to avoid any potential accidents.
  • Take Your Time. One of the best pieces of advice for delivery truck drivers to follow is to always take a sufficient amount of time and never drive in a rushed manner.
