What Causes Delivery Truck Accidents in Ocoee?
Delivery truck drivers frequently get into accidents that cause injuries to themselves and to others. Their employers, who may be large delivery companies, online retail companies, or smaller third-party delivery companies, often impose unreasonably high delivery quotas on them. As a result, the drivers often try to cut corners. They may avoid taking breaks even when they are too tired to continue driving safely. They may speed, violate other traffic laws, get distracted by using their devices, and make abrupt turns and stops. All of these negligent driving behaviors greatly increase the chances of an accident.
It’s only fair that if you were hurt by someone else’s negligence, the at-fault party should be held responsible for your injuries. Florida law agrees and gives you the right to seek compensation (damages) from the parties whose negligence contributed to the accident.
To bring a claim for damages against a negligent party or parties, you need to be able to prove that their negligence caused or partially caused the accident in which you were injured. This means you must have evidence that clearly demonstrates their negligence.
The Dennis Hernandez Ocoee delivery truck accident lawyers know how to find the evidence you need. They have the resources and experience to thoroughly investigate your accident, identify all at-fault parties, and gather and present the evidence needed to prove negligence on their part.
Who Can I Sue After Being Injured in an Ocoee Delivery Truck Accident?
In an accident involving a delivery truck, there are many parties who might have been negligent. These may include:
- The delivery truck driver
- The company that employs the driver
- The owner of the goods the truck was delivering
- A third-party delivery company, if the employer, delivery company, or owner of the goods subcontracted the delivery job
- The manufacturer of the truck
- The manufacturer of any parts that were involved in the accident, such as brakes that failed
- The company or people who maintained and repaired the truck and its parts
The relationship among the various parties can be complex. The experienced Dennis Hernandez Ocoee delivery truck accident lawyers can investigate your accident and examine the facts to find out which parties were negligent and may be held responsible. We will then name all of them in a lawsuit to give you the best chance of receiving all the compensation that you deserve.
Serious Injuries Common in Ocoee Accidents Involving Delivery Trucks
When a delivery truck or van collides with a car, the injuries can be severe. Delivery trucks and vans are much bigger and heavier than cars. In a crash, they can do substantial damage to a car and the people inside. Consequently, serious injuries sustained in delivery truck accidents often require long-term care.
Examples of serious injuries that are common in Ocoee delivery truck accidents include injuries to internal organs, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, burns, lacerations, fractures, and injuries to the legs, arms, feet, hands, back, and neck.
If you were severely hurt, you may need surgery and follow-up medical care over a long period of time, perhaps for the rest of your life. You may also need rehab services, medical procedures, medication, home care, or assistive devices. The ongoing cost of this care can be extremely expensive, often causing financial hardship for the injured individual and their family.
The Dennis Hernandez Ocoee delivery truck accident lawyers will fight for your right to receive compensation for your medical expenses and other care costs for as long as you continue to need the care.
