What Causes a Delivery Truck Accident?

Any driver is susceptible to a number of potential distractions and hazards on the road, but the nature of a delivery truck driver’s work can significantly elevate the risk of issues that will potentially cause an accident. Given that delivery trucks are operated more regularly than consumer vehicles and that their drivers are frequently on the road for extended periods of time, delivery truck drivers have a pronounced responsibility for safety on the road.

Some of the most common causes of a delivery truck accident include the following:

  • Driver fatigue that results from being on the road for too many hours at a time
  • Distractions, which can be caused by anything from GPS navigation to mobile phones and more
  • Improper maintenance which can make a delivery truck unsafe to operate and increase the risk of an accident
  • Speeding or unsafe driving
  • Loading errors that can result in a loss of control, spills, or other events that can cause an accident

What If I’m Injured After a Delivery Truck Accident?

Prompt Medical Evaluation

If you’ve been injured in a delivery truck accident, the most important step is to ensure that you’re medically evaluated and that you receive treatment as quickly as possible. If you wait until a later time or date to receive medical treatment, the insurance company defending against your claim may be able to use this information to suggest that your injuries were not actually caused by the accident itself.

What Is Negligence?

In simple terms, the owner or operator of a delivery truck that has been involved in an accident will be held liable for injuries or damages inflicted upon another person if they’re found to have acted negligently.

Negligence typically involves four key elements:

  1. The defendant (the truck driver or company owning the truck) is shown to owe a duty of care to the plaintiff (the person who was injured).
  2. That duty of care was breached or ignored by the defendant.
  3. It can be shown that this breach is the direct cause of the defendant’s injuries.
  4. The breach directly caused the plaintiff to suffer damages
