Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery truck drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe, reasonable manner.

Many delivery services allow their drivers to go home as soon as they finish their deliveries. This practice, of course, offers an incentive for a driver to make his or her deliveries as quickly as possible, which may lead to dangerous driving practices.
Some of the most common delivery truck accident causes include:
Both the delivery driver and the delivery company may be held liable in a delivery truck accident claim. With the assistance of an experienced accident attorney, all potential defendants are identified and pursued in a legal claim.
If it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit against the delivery truck driver, the delivery company, or other defendants, there is a wide range of evidence that may be used to strengthen your case. Your attorney carefully studies the facts of your case and determines what evidence is needed to support your claims for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. These types of evidence may include:
Other types of evidence may also be submitted, depending on the facts of the case.
The amount of time it takes to resolve a delivery truck accident claim varies significantly depending on the circumstances of the claim. Some claims may be resolved in just a few months, whereas others may take more than a year to resolve. The amount of time it takes to compile evidence, the willingness of the parties to work on a settlement agreement, and the punctuality of the court schedule all impact how long it takes to finalize a claim. However, with the help of an attorney, your case is resolved as quickly as possible so that you may move on with your life.
