Summary: Why Should I Hire a Delivery Truck Accident Attorney in New York City?

Delivery services, such as FedEx or UPS, put delivery trucks on the streets to deliver packages to consumers. While these trucks aren’t as large as 18 wheelers, they can still cause a lot of damage to passenger cars or pedestrians if they’ve been hurt by them. If you or a loved one were hurt in a delivery truck accident, a delivery truck accident attorney in New York City, such as Stuart DiMartini, can help.

Causes of Delivery Truck Accidents

The pressure of having to quickly complete a long route daily can lead to poor judgment or other errors. Some of the most common causes of delivery truck accidents include driving too fast for the traffic conditions, driving while distracted, failing to use turn signals, ignoring the rules of the road (including the right of way), and failure to notice traffic signs or signals such as a red light. The law will hold a delivery truck responsible if they acted negligently and caused injury to others. A delivery truck accident attorney in New York City can investigate the accident and determine if negligence applies. The main issue is to determine whether or not the driver is an independent contractor or an employee of a company as this determines who is sued for your injuries.
