Collisions Involving Delivery Drivers

Delivery vehicles carry much of our nation's commerce. But commercial delivery drivers are prone to many of the same bad driving habits as private individuals, including disobeying traffic laws, texting or talking on a mobile phone, or driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol.

If you were injured in a serious or catastrophic accident with a delivery driver, whether it was a truck accident, an auto accident or another type of collision, the law firm of Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC, can help you obtain the funds you need to pay medical bills and your ongoing expenses. Our attorneys focus on personal injury cases and have nearly 400 years of collective legal experience. We are committed to providing you with individualized service and with getting you the compensation you deserve.

Legal Factors In Delivery Driver Car Crashes

Ironically, the items being delivered by a driver play little or no role in how an injury lawsuit unfolds. The factors that are most relevant as your lawyer assembles your claim include the following:

  • If the driver was officially "on the clock" for his employer
  • Whether the delivery vehicle was owned by the driver or the employer
  • The insurance policy covering the delivery vehicle
  • The condition of the company's delivery car or truck
  • If the company set unrealistic delivery deadlines for drivers
  • If the employer knowingly hired a driver with a history of traffic violations or impaired driving convictions

If you are injured in a car crash involving a delivery driver, it is especially important to have all the circumstances of the accident well-documented. Our attorneys can help obtain police reports, discuss data with accident reconstruction professionals and employ other professionals to demonstrate who was at fault for your injuries.
