Lawyers in Coral Springs for Those Hurt in Crashes Involving UPS Vehicles

The ease of shopping from the comfort of one's own home has led to a sharp rise in package deliveries across the United States. To meet the increasing demands, many delivery services increased the number of drivers on the road. UPS and its fleet of drivers is one notable example. With the company's drivers taking on an ever-increasing number of packages, more and more of these vehicles are becoming involved in motor vehicle accidents.

Because they are larger and heavier than most other vehicles, UPS delivery trucks can cause serious injuries when they are involved in accidents. If you have been the victim of a crash caused by a negligent UPS delivery driver, it is essential to understand your legal rights and your options for pursuing compensation. You can do so with the help of an experienced lawyer who understands how to address the complex issues that may arise in these cases.

Factors That May Affect UPS Vehicle Accidents

UPS may be liable for any injuries or accidents caused by employees who make deliveries. As a result, it is essential to be aware of the common types of UPS driver negligence that may result in dangerous accidents, including:

  • Distracted driving – While making deliveries, a UPS driver will often need to look at a smartphone or another device in order to make sure that the route is correct, that directions are followed precisely, and that all packages reach the correct destinations. Not only can outside distractions affect a driver's ability to focus, but eating, drinking, or rummaging through the cargo area of their vehicle for items may also take their attention away from the road. This lack of focus could lead to an inability to respond quickly and correctly in ever-changing traffic situations, and as a result, UPS drivers may collide with other vehicles or pedestrians.
  • Unsafe driving – To reach the high delivery numbers required of them, UPS drivers may be tempted to take risks and cut corners on the road. This could include exceeding speed limits, tailgating behind other cars, or even running red lights without stopping, all of which can significantly increase the probability of an accident resulting in serious injuries to others.
  • Driver fatigue and drowsy driving – UPS drivers are often required to work lengthy, grueling shifts, with much of their time spent on the road. Regularly getting in and out of their vehicles and transporting a variety of heavy and unwieldy items between their trucks and the locations of deliveries can be physically taxing. In such circumstances, fatigue may hinder a driver's ability to keep control over their vehicle, and drowsiness can cause them to lose focus or even fall asleep behind the wheel, resulting in potentially fatal collisions.
