Personal Injury Attorneys in California Representing the Rights of People Hurt in Delivery Truck Accidents
Online shopping is an ever-growing modern-day convenience. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans have indulged themselves in having their essentials and luxuries delivered to their doorstep with the click of a button. What could be so bad? The substantial increase of delivery trucks in California neighborhoods and on its roadways. FedEx, UPS, USPS, Amazon, DHL, and other companies deliver thousands of packages throughout this state every day.
Despite professional training, delivery drivers are bound to make mistakes. Multi-tasking is a large part of their job. They must drive a large truck, watch for street names and house numbers, locate the right delivery point, and adhere to strict deadlines. There’s naturally a lot of pressure to keep up with the high delivery demand. All of this equates to a higher risk of delivery truck accidents. At Kash Legal Group, our California truck accident attorneys can help you after such an accident.
Liability and Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery truck crashes may seem unavoidable with the increased volume of these vehicles on the road. However, in reality, nearly all accidents with delivery trucks are preventable. The negligence of the driver, the delivery company, a third party, or a combination of any of these usually caused or contributed to the accident. With hundreds of thousands of delivery trucks in operation making deliveries every day of the week, these companies are at high risk of causing and contributing to motor vehicle accidents. Parties that may be liable for your recent accident:
The delivery truck driver
If the delivery truck driver is an independent contractor and not directly employed by the delivery company, you might be able to bring a claim against them individually. The other driver’s insurance company might offer you a settlement. If you don’t believe that the settlement offer is fair and they are unwilling to negotiate a fair one, you could take your case to trial to fight for the compensation you are entitled to receive.
The delivery company
A company can be held legally responsible for the actions of its employees. If an employed driver commits a negligent or wrongful act while performing the duties of their employment, the injured individual can bring claims against the delivery company itself, not merely the driver.
State laws determine the “scope of employment” when the accident occurred. In California, the employer is vicariously liable for its employees’ negligent and wrongful acts if those acts are committed within the scope of employment.
