Helping You Through The Aftermath Of A Los Angeles Delivery Truck Accident

In today’s world, delivery drivers and trucks are filling up our neighborhood streets. In Los Angeles alone, thousands of drivers deliver groceries, pizza, packages, and even coffee to homes and offices every day. With more delivery drivers, means more traffic and a larger opportunity for delivery truck accidents to occur.

If you suffered injuries in an accident with a delivery truck, you have the right to file for compensation to help you recover from your injuries. At the Law Offices of Eric Hershler in the Sawtelle area of West Los Angeles, we have over 35 years of experience assisting clients in Southern California to obtain compensation for their suffering injury in a serious accident. We utilize a client-based approach to our cases, always providing the personal attention and care you need to get through this difficult time.

Demanding Delivery Companies Can Create Serious Risks

With a large surge in online shopping, delivery drivers are kept busy in the Los Angeles area. Whether involving large companies such as Amazon to USPS and FedEx, delivery truck accidents are becoming more common throughout the state.

Delivery truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons but are often tied to the demanding nature of the delivery industry. Common causes of delivery truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue from long hours
  • Tight delivery schedules
  • Distracted driving due to navigation or communication devices
  • Speeding
  • Improper loading
  • Lack of proper maintenance
  • Impaired driving accidents

After suffering injuries in a delivery truck accident, you can file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your suffering. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to recover for your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, loss of income, lost earning capacity, property damage, disability, disfigurement, and pain and suffering.

However, delivery truck accident claims can be more complicated than other car accidents due to the employee-employer relationship between the driver and the company. In California, the employer is responsible for the actions of their employees while on the job. This means that you can potentially file a claim against the driver, the delivery company or any responsible third parties.
