Deltona Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer
Americans now do more than 15% of their retail spending online. That means there are a huge number of packages that must be delivered to people’s homes and businesses, and numerous delivery trucks and vans needed to make the deliveries. Unfortunately, these delivery trucks cause accidents, which injure drivers and passengers in other motor vehicles on Florida’s roadways.
Delivery vans and trucks often drive on residential streets that were not designed for such large vehicles, and when a delivery truck collides with a car, the larger size and greater weight of the truck can severely damage the car and cause the people inside the car to be seriously injured. Brain and spinal cord injuries, broken and fractured bones, and internal organ damage are just a few of the serious injuries that can occur from a delivery truck accident.

Why Are Deltona Delivery Truck Accidents So Common?
Delivery truck driver fatigue is a serious problem that puts everyone on the road at risk. Companies that hire delivery truck drivers often put enormous pressure on them to meet high daily delivery quotas. Drivers have to rush and often work long shifts to get all their deliveries made. They don’t have time to take rest breaks when they need them.
Drowsy drivers are dangerous drivers. They are three times more likely to get into a crash. Their reaction time slows down, they become less aware of hazards, and they can fall asleep at the wheel.
Another common cause of Deltona delivery truck accidents is driver distraction. Delivery drivers may take their eyes off the road while looking for addresses on houses or looking for information on their devices. Also, if they pass by their destination house, they can make abrupt stops or turns, which can lead to crashes.
Delivery drivers may also make driving mistakes if they are inexperienced and poorly trained. There currently is a shortage of qualified delivery drivers and a constant need for new drivers. Companies may hire inexperienced truck drivers and put them out on the road without taking the time to provide proper training.
If you were injured because of a delivery driver’s negligence, Florida law gives you the right to seek compensation through a claim or lawsuit. The Dennis Hernandez Deltona delivery truck accident lawyers would be glad to analyze your case and determine if the delivery driver was at fault and should, therefore, be held financially responsible for your injuries.
Who Can Be Held Liable for a Deltona Delivery Truck Accident?
You can seek compensation from any person or company whose negligence contributed to the accident in which you were injured. However, identifying all negligent parties in a delivery truck accident case can be more complicated than in a case involving a crash between two cars. That’s because there may be more parties who are negligent when a commercial vehicle is involved in an accident.
The parties who may be held responsible for your injuries in a delivery truck accident case include the delivery driver, the driver’s employer, the company whose packages the driver was delivering (if that’s different from the employer), the maker of the truck and its brakes and other parts, and the maintenance and repair workers or companies who took care of the truck.
The Dennis Hernandez delivery truck accident lawyers have the experience, knowledge, and resources to thoroughly investigate your accident and identify and locate all negligent parties. This is important because the more parties identified as defendants in your lawsuit, the better your chances of getting the full compensation you deserve.
The Dennis Hernandez truck accident lawyers work tirelessly to get you the maximum compensation allowed. Call us today at 855-529-3366 or fill out the FREE CASE EVALUATION form on this page to get started on your case
