Delivery Trucks play in an important role in the American economy from delivering home goods to food to construction materials. When these trucks experience an accident, it can be costly and cause serious injury. Trucks are capable of producing mass damage to property and can injure those involved in the accident whether they are a pedestrian, cyclist or passenger/driver in another vehicle. If you were recently involved in a delivery truck accident, you may be eligible for compensation.
According to the World Health Organization,
“an estimated 1.2 million people are killed each year in road traffic crashes with as many as 50 million more counted for injury.”
While these statistics are both sobering and tragic, its circumstances are all too common. Delivery trucks are often carrying a much heavier load than most passenger vehicles which is a contributing factor to why they put individuals on the road at higher risk. These crashes result from a variety of factors whether it be human error or truck mechanical failures and when a heavier load is involved this can lead to further driver mistakes and fatal accidents.
Most delivery drivers are treated as employees by law which means the company involved may be financially responsible if the driver is at fault.
