Dallas UPS and Fedex Accident Attorney

Involved In An Accident With A UPS or Fedex Truck?

It seems that there are more UPS and FedEx delivery trucks on the road today than virtually ever before. With the increase in e-commerce comes the pressure to deliver packages to people and businesses more quickly, which could be a recipe for dangerous driving. If you have been in an accident with a package delivery service vehicle as a result of reckless driving, a skilled delivery truck accident lawyer familiar with these types of incidents can help you file a claim against the negligent party.

At the Dallas-based firm of Jerry D. Andrews P.C., we understand the prospect of a legal battle against a huge corporation like UPS or FedEx can be intimidating. However, you do not need to go up against them on your own. Attorney Jerry D. Andrews is a board-certified personal injury trial lawyer who has the knowledge and experience to advocate for you or your loved ones. He and his team will evaluate your case and work to obtain the compensation you could be entitled to.

What Causes a Delivery Truck Accident?

To recover compensation for injuries, an injured victim must prove that the delivery truck operator exhibited negligent behavior, meaning there must be evidence that the driver acted dangerously. Alternatively, there must be proof that even if the driver was cautious, the delivery truck was defective, and a vehicle flaw could have caused the crash.

Often, corporate policies require the timely delivery of packages, and these deadlines can be extremely tight. This can put drivers under substantial pressure to move fast, both in and out of their vehicles. Unrealistic deadlines and the condoning of dangerous behaviors could lead to liability on the part of the employer or company, as well as that of the driver.

There are many ways a driver could exhibit negligent behavior, including but not limited to:

  • Speeding to make deliveries
  • Driving aggressively
  • Parking in hazardous places or ways
  • Working while fatigued or impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Driving unsafely in inclement weather

Standing Up to Big Companies

Large-scale delivery companies such as UPS and FedEx own, operate, and contract massive fleets of cargo planes, semi-trucks, box trucks, delivery vans, and other types of vehicles. They employ thousands of people, including package handlers, pilots, over-the-road truck drivers, and local delivery drivers. Such companies also maintain entire teams of full-time attorneys whose primary jobs are to protect the best interests of the business. Of course, the companies who provide the various types of necessary insurance to the delivery giant also employ teams of lawyers as well.

This is what you are up against when you have been injured in an accident involving a FedEx or UPS vehicle. This is why you need an experienced attorney on your side who is willing to stand up and fight for you. Throughout his career, Attorney Jerry Andrews has consistently stood up to big corporations, their insurers, and their legal teams to successfully secure compensation for his clients. He and is team are ready to do the same for you.
