Delivery Vehicle Crashes
As many people try to stay home and avoid crowded stores in 2020, we are relying on online ordering more than anything. Whether you quickly order something from Prime or have groceries or takeout delivered, it will be someone’s job to bring these items to your door. As more and more people place orders, there are more and more delivery vehicles in our neighborhoods.
Delivery vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and some are a driver’s personal car or SUV. Others might be vans or larger box trucks, which are commercial vehicles and require a special license to operate. No matter what type of vehicle a delivery person is driving, the chance always exists that the car or truck can crash.
Delivery drivers can cause serious damage and injuries in residential areas. They might hit:
- Other vehicles
- Children playing
- Other property
Like any type of motor vehicle crash, serious injuries can result, and injured victims might have the right to hold another party liable for their medical bills or other losses. Liability for the crash can vary, and it might include:
- A delivery driver who was negligent
- The employer of the delivery driver
- The manufacturer of the delivery vehicle
Some accident victims might need to file multiple insurance claims, and it is best to have the help of an experienced attorney.
