Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer
The increasing popularity of online shopping has not only led to malls that feel more like ghost towns, but also a much greater number of delivery trucks out on the roads. If you or a loved one has experienced long-term, life-altering injuries in an accident with a delivery truck (or any large truck on the roadway), it is essential that your claim be comprehensive and complete. When a settlement does not fully cover the costs linked to your delivery truck accident, you and your family are the ones left to cover the difference out of your own finances.
Being hit by a delivery truck can result in serious injuries and damage to your vehicle, and when the driver or their truck were responsible for the accident, the company may be liable for your damages.
Amazon, Fedex, UPS, and Other Companies May Be Liable
If an employee is working on company time in a company vehicle and they cause an accident, the company they work for will generally be liable for the damages. With the increasing number of large companies’ vehicles on the road, if you are hit by a delivery truck driver you’ll likely be dealing with a large insurance company that backs Amazon or whatever other company owns the delivery truck.
When it comes to rideshare accidents, the situation is sometimes more complicated. While most states require rideshare companies to carry independent insurance, some companies also require their drivers to carry additional insurance coverage. In either situation, the opposing party that you will be filing your claim and attempting to collect damages from will be an insurance company.
Does the Driver Pay Out-of-Pocket for My Settlement?
A common question that our clients ask is whether or not the driver will be personally responsible for the outcome of the claim. This is rarely the case, as when employees are working their employer’s insurance is generally active and will be responsible for the damages that result from any accidents. In instances where a driver was drunk or breaking the rules, their employer may pursue damages from them, but if you work with a Decatur delivery truck accident attorney from the start, you won’t have to worry about any of these factors.
