Delivery Truck Accident

It happens all the time in major cities: you're walking on the sidewalk, minding your own business, when a delivery truck driven by a driver who isn't paying attention comes flying out of an alleyway and hits you. Delivery trucks are operating all the time, especially in major metropolitan cities like Birmingham. Accidents involving delivery trucks are often more frequent than car accidents because delivery trucks are larger in size than your average car or truck. Unfortunately, accidents caused by delivery trucks can result in catastrophic injury or death to innocent motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

The main cause of delivery truck accidents is the negligence of the truck driver. Negligence could mean that the truck drivers could fail to yield while merging; they could travel with excessive speed or disobey some other posted signage; they may travel under the influence of drugs or alcohol; they also might fail to engage the truck's parking brake while they leave the trucks. Many delivery truck drivers are under the pressure of a deadline, so they usually suffer from an extremely high level of fatigue from long distance driving. If someone causes an accident because they are negligent, a personal injury or wrongful death claim can be filed against them. Consequently, a court may order them to pay the victim or victim’s family monetary compensation for their injuries or loss.
