Delivery Truck Accidents

When delivery truck accidents are caused by the negligence of a driver or trucking company, injured parties can obtain compensation for their injuries and losses through a truck accident lawsuit.

When delivery truck accidents are caused by the negligence of a driver or trucking company, injured parties can obtain compensation for their injuries and losses through a truck accident lawsuit.

While many people think of semis or tractor trailers when they think about truck accidents, oftentimes, traffic accidents are caused by delivery trucks – particularly on residential streets and roadways. Some of the reasons that delivery trucks are commonly involved in truck accidents include (but are not limited to) the facts that delivery trucks are regularly on the road and that they:

  • Tend to stop and/or backup with little or possibly no warning to other drivers
  • Frequently are double parked (often on busy roadways) while drivers get out of the trucks to deliver whatever goods they are hauling
  • Significantly limit other drivers’ ability to see around them
  • May drop cargo into the roadways, which could cause other drivers to have to come to immediate stops, swerve, etc.

Among the types of delivery trucks that are commonly involved in traffic accidents include:

  • Food delivery trucks
  • Beverage delivery trucks
  • Furniture moving trucks
  • Postal trucks, FedEx trucks, UPS trucks and other mail delivery trucks
  • Lunch trucks
  • Vehicle hauling trucks
  • Tool vendor trucks (such as Snap-On trucks)

Causes of Delivery Truck Accidents

Although delivery truck accidents can be caused by unpreventable factors, such as dangerous weather conditions, in many cases, these accidents result from the negligence or reckless of some party, such as:

  • The delivery truck driver: Operating the truck while intoxicated or failing to comply with traffic laws are examples of truck driver negligence.
  • The trucking company: Failing to properly maintain the delivery truck is one example of how a trucking company can be negligent.
  • The manufacturer of the delivery truck: Installing defective equipment in deliver trucks, such as faulty braking systems, is an example of how manufacturers may be negligent.
