Largo Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer
Online shopping is popular in Florida and throughout the United States. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Americans spend more than $90 million every month on items purchased online. It’s no wonder there are so many trucks and vans on the streets of Largo and throughout Florida delivering packages to the people who ordered them.
Unfortunately, these delivery trucks get into a lot of accidents. Their drivers are pressured to deliver an extremely high volume of packages during their shifts and to do so at high speeds. As a result, they often drive too fast and take chances that put the people in other vehicles at risk of being hurt. In addition, a delivery truck or van weighs more than a passenger vehicle and can cause severe damage in a collision.

Common Reasons Why Delivery Trucks Get into Accidents in Largo
A delivery driver’s typical daily shift may be as long as 10 hours. Because of the pressure they are under to meet their delivery quotas, which may include constant monitoring by their employers, drivers may keep on driving long after they get tired and should have taken a break to rest.
When delivery truck drivers get fatigued, they can nod off or fall asleep at the wheel. Even if they stay awake, their reaction time will be slower, and they are more likely to become distracted. According to the National Safety Council, fatigued drivers are three times more likely to be in a crash than well rested drivers.
In addition to being fatigued, delivery truck drivers are often distracted. They may be checking their destinations on their mobile devices or looking around, trying to find an address in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Drivers may go too fast, make abrupt turns, and come to sudden stops. Some delivery drivers lose control of their trucks because they are inexperienced and poorly trained.
The Dennis Hernandez Largo delivery truck accident lawyers leverage our resources, skill, and experience to thoroughly investigate our clients’ accidents and gather proof of negligence (fault). We will find out how your accident happened and who was at fault. We will then file a claim or lawsuit to hold the at-fault parties financially responsible for your injuries.

If you have been seriously injured recently in a delivery truck crash, you know how much these accidents change people’s lives.
