A collision that involves a delivery truck with another vehicle, such as a car or motorcycle can often be very serious. If a pedestrian is hit, the consequences are likely to be even more terrible. Traffic accident cases involving delivery trucks or vans are on the rise throughout the country.
Every single day, thousands of deliveries are made to homes and businesses. Courier packages, food, mail, furniture, industrial equipment, car parts and other types of cargo are transported regularly by delivery truck within our nation’s cities. Delivery trucks play a vital role in ensuring that people and businesses get the goods they need delivered to them on time and have an important part to play in our economy. Delivery vans and trucks of various sizes are on the road 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The sheer quantity of delivery vehicles are expected to increase as more and more individuals and companies order goods online and have them shipped directly to their home or place of business.
While most delivery drivers do their best to drive with care and avoid reckless or dangerous maneuvers on the road, there are some cases where drivers are under a lot of pressure to make deliveries on time. This can lead them to pushing themselves and their vehicles just too far. Furthermore, some companies that own delivery vehicles may not maintain them properly to ensure that they’re always in optimal safety condition. All of this combined has caused numerous accidents resulting in severe injuries to delivery drivers themselves, other drivers on the road as well as cyclists and pedestrians.
