Helping You Seek Compensation After an Auto Accident Caused by a Delivery Driver

Delivery vehicles vary considerably in size and weight, ranging from the massive tractor-trailers commonly utilized by large companies, such as UPS, FedEx, freight carriers, and other parcel shipment businesses, like Amazon, to the standard sedans used to deliver pizza and other food via GrubHub or DoorDash.

If the accident was caused by the reckless or negligent driving of a delivery driver, or an overloaded truck, an injured victim may have legal recourse against the driver.

Under certain circumstances, injured parties may also bring a direct claim against the driver’s employer, alleging that negligence on the part of the employer caused or was a substantial factor in contributing to their injuries.

The company may be found liable for its negligent hiring practices if, for example, it fails to reasonably vet its drivers before allowing them to drive 30-ton semi trucks on the highway.

Additionally, if an employer is inattentive in the training or supervision of its delivery drivers, or if it tasks an inexperienced driver with a job that could cause harm to another person, the company may be financially responsible for any injuries that arise.

Within the industry, truck driver fatigue is a known factor that contributes to delivery vehicle accidents. Employers that negligently overschedule their drivers could be held accountable if a driver falls asleep at the wheel.
