Thousands of delivery trucks deliver millions of packages to people and businesses each day. Unfortunately, this means that accidents involving deliver trucks happen fairly regularly. Most of the time, damage is minor in nature, such as scratches or dents, but sometimes, serious injuries do occur.
Our experienced Georgia deliver truck accident attorneys are extremely knowledgeable in liability cases involving deliver trucks such as FedEx, UPS, freight shipping trucks, and service trucks.
We understand that many accidents happen because these companies put so much pressure on their drivers to deliver as many packages as possible. It is understandable, the more packages they deliver, the more money the company makes. However, all this pressure sometimes forces drivers to make poor driving decisions. Ultimately, these poor decisions are the direct cause of a large majority of delivery truck accidents.
There are five major causes of FedEx and UPS truck accidents. They are:
1. Failure to set parking brake on a decline or incline
2. Driver backing into a car when passing the destination
3. Driver making quick and sudden stops
4. Inadequately trained drivers
5. Drivers failing to yield when merging into traffic
