Why Are Delivery Truck Accidents in Bradenton So Dangerous?
If you are in a car and get hit by a delivery truck, you are more likely to be seriously injured than if you were hit by another car. That’s because the delivery truck is so much heavier and larger than your car. When the two vehicles collide, the impact of the truck can be devastating to the people inside of the car.
In addition, this type of accident is more likely to happen than some other types of collisions because the trucks can be hard to maneuver, and the drivers are often rushing to meet the speed requirements imposed by their employers.

What Causes Delivery Truck Crashes in Bradenton?
Delivery truck drivers work long hours. They may have 10-hour shifts. The time spent behind the wheel without a sufficient break can make them dangerously drowsy. They may ignore any feelings of exhaustion and push themselves to keep on driving. That’s because they are often under intense pressure to deliver huge volumes of packages before the end of their shifts. They put both themselves and others at danger by prioritizing speed over safety.
Common causes of delivery truck crashes in Bradenton and throughout Florida include:
- Mistakes due to fatigue. Drowsy driving is a major cause of truck accidents. When drivers are drowsy, they are more easily distracted. They may pay less attention to the road, and their reaction time and judgment are impaired. If they are tired enough, they could even fall asleep while behind the wheel.
- Distracted driving. Anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road could cause an accident. Common distractions for delivery drivers include texting on their phones, looking for addresses, and checking their directions.
- Sudden stops and turns. While looking for their next delivery address, a driver may spot it suddenly and come to an abrupt halt, or they may realize they passed it, and make a sudden U-turn or three-point turn. Either of these maneuvers could cause a crash.
- Impaired driving. Delivery drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs (prescription, over-the-counter, or illegal) may be impaired. When people are impaired, they are dangerous to themselves and everyone else on the road.
- Poor maintenance. Accidents can happen when a delivery truck or its parts are not properly maintained or repaired. In this situation, the manufacturers of the truck or its parts and/or the people or company responsible for maintenance and repair may be held liable for an accident.
