Who's Liable for a Delivery Vehicle Accident?
Negligence means that someone owed another person a duty of care, breached that duty, and caused an accident resulting in damages. In the context of vehicle accidents, negligence typically occurs when a driver fails to adhere to the rules of the road, or otherwise drives unsafely, causing injury or death to others.
Determining who is at fault is critical to any personal injury case, particularly in a case involving a delivery driver. At a minimum, the negligent driver will be at fault, but whether the driver's employer will be held legally responsible is a more complex issue. If the delivery driver was driving a FedEx or Amazon Prime truck, the answer is more obvious, but what if it is a driver in their own personal vehicle making deliveries for a delivery company? Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook has the necessary tools at their disposal to ensure the circumstances of the accident are investigated and to hold accountable the responsible parties, including the delivery company who was employing the driver.
What Is a Delivery Vehicle Accident Case Worth?
If someone is injured due to the negligence of a delivery driver, they may seek financial recovery for damages they sustained.
Damages include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earning capacity
- Emotional distress
- Costs of future medical care
The amount the victim can receive in a settlement or be awarded in a verdict depends on the extent of their injuries and how it has affected their life. In cases of wrongful death, the next-of-kin may be entitled to compensation for different categories of damages, including the value of the loss of the relationship, lost financial support, and even the pre-death pain and suffering of the lost loved one.
Delivery companies are often multi-billion dollar corporations that will fight aggressively on every claim, regardless of how clear the facts of the case appear. It requires a skilled and experienced attorney to effectively represent the interests of the injured party to ensure that the delivery company is held legally and financially responsible.
