Common Causes for Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery trucks travel in various areas, oftentimes in congested traffic. Because of heavy traffic and needing to be in multiple locations during the day, they can put others — especially pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists — at risk.
With a schedule to keep, drivers of delivery trucks may compromise safety in order to get where they need to be on time.
Common causes for delivery truck accidents by trying to keep a tight schedule include:
- driving faster than the speed limit;
- running through stop signs; and
- turning without looking.
Trucks can brake suddenly when they reach their stop or back up into someone else. If you are a pedestrian, cyclist or a motorist and have been injured as a result of a delivery driver’s negligence, compensation may be available.
Common injuries suffered in delivery truck accidents include:
- spinal cord damage;
- neck injuries;
- back injuries;
- road burn;
- head trauma;
- brain damage; and
Liability for your accident may include not only the driver, but also the trucking or delivery company. The best way to learn who could be found at fault is to seek legal counsel.
You may be able to recover damages for your delivery truck accident, including:
- lost earnings;
- pain and suffering;
- mental anguish;
- disability; and
Compensation may be available to cover medical expenses, and possibly reasonable burial and funeral costs if a loved one was killed.
