Our Expert California Delivery Truck Accident Attorneys

The surge in online shopping has led to an increase in delivery trucks on California’s roadways. FedEx, UPS, USPS, Amazon delivery, and other establishments deliver thousands of packages throughout the state every day. Despite professional training and driving classes, deliverymen and women make mistakes. 

They have to operate the truck, look for the right drop-off point, and adhere to strict deadlines. They are under a lot of pressure to keep up with the high delivery demand. These elements add up to a higher risk of delivery truck accidents. Our delivery truck accident lawyers can help you determine fault and file a claim after such an accident.

Who Is Liable for Delivery Truck Crashes?

Delivery truck accidents may seem inevitable with the volume of these vehicles on the road, but in reality, nearly all collisions with delivery trucks are preventable. They stem from someone’s negligence – the driver, the delivery company, or a third party. 

With hundreds of thousands of trucks operating seven days per week, delivery companies are at great risk of causing and contributing to traffic accidents. Here’s a brief overview of parties that may be liable for your recent accident:

  • The delivery truck driver. If the driver is an independent contractor and not an employee of the company, you may be able to bring a claim against the individual driver. The other driver’s insurance company might offer you a settlement, or you could take your case to trial to fight for compensation you believe is fair.
  • The delivery company. There is a liability theory that makes a company responsible for the actions of its employees. If an employed driver commits a negligent or wrongful act within the scope of employment, injured parties can bring claims against the delivery company itself. State laws determine the “scope of employment” in an accident.
  • Third party. In some scenarios, a third party such as another driver, roadway maintenance crew, or vehicle manufacturer may be responsible for a delivery truck crash. In this case, injured parties could potentially sue the third party and/or the delivery truck driver or company.

Delivery truck accidents can be complex. If, for instance, you collide with a truck from the United States Postal Service, you have a case involving a governmental body. These claims have different rules – you must notify the agency of your intent to file within six months of the accident. California Injury Law Group can help you understand the complicated laws involved with delivery truck crashes. We’ll work alongside you to fight for the settlement terms, compensation, and reimbursement your injuries deserve.

About FedEx/UPS Claims

Getting into an accident with a FedEx or UPS truck means dealing with these companies’ insurers. FedEx carries business automobile liability insurance with a $5 million combined single limit. UPS has auto liability insurance with a $1 million limit. You might receive a phone call from a large insurance company as soon as the day of the accident.

An insurance claims adjuster will ask you for details about what happened. He or she may try to get you to give a recorded statement. As attorneys, we recommend that car accident victims do not give statements to insurers until they’ve spoken with a lawyer.

Large insurance companies are not looking out for accident victims. They are looking out for themselves. In a crash with FedEx or UPS, a claims adjuster will try to get you to settle for as little as possible. These settlement offers are typically much smaller than what one could receive in a personal injury claim. Before you agree to anything, call California Injury Law Group at (888) 488-1391. We can discuss your case during a free consultation. Sign up online and a member of our team will get back to you right away.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law. What made my experience excellent was (i.e. head attorney being accessible to talk to and he answered all my questions and concerns, sensitive and thorough personel who completed in home intake & follow up process, being connected immediately to quality Physicians who addressed my injuries and recovery process, clear contract-read throughly to ensure its something you can commit to). Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra
