Online shopping and home delivery services have seen an influx of business over the recent years; this has only been compounded by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which has caused people to change their shopping habits. Because of this there has been an increased presence of delivery trucks seen in the streets from vendors such as Amazon, UPS, USPS, FedEx and much more mentioned below. While these services often make our lives more convenient, it comes with a cost. These drivers are overworked, undertrained, and pressured to meet exceedingly tight deadlines. As a result of these conditions accidents with these vehicles has become more common.
Accidents and recovery with these delivery trucks are typically not as simple as one may think when their mind goes to an automobile accident. Oftentimes this extends well beyond a simple exchanging of insurance information; most vendors have a dedicated legal team whose job is to slow and limit the recovery one can expect from such an occurrence.
One of the most common questions asked in these circumstances is: Who is responsible for an accident involving a delivery driver? It depends upon the circumstances. The driver of the vehicle that struck you ultimately responsible. However, there may be additional insurance coverage available from the drivers employer. Given the complexities involved in these incidents, and given the legal support maintained by these companies specifically for these accidents, it is always recommended to seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney to help guide you through the process.
