Accident & Injury 

Summary: Have you been involved in a UPS accident? Find out your legal rights and the steps to take for protection with Deldar Legal.

Every day, millions of packages are delivered across the country, with UPS (United Parcel Service) alone handling 22.3 million packages daily. UPS is a behemoth in the delivery industry. In 2023, the company generated an impressive $91 billion in annual revenue. This massive scale means UPS trucks are a common sight on our roads. With such high volume and the pressure to meet delivery deadlines, a UPS accident can happen anywhere.


Delivery and other larger commercial trucks make our lives convenient and efficient. Unfortunately, it also contributes to increased traffic that can leads to more accidents. If you’ve been involved in a UPS accident, whether as a driver or a pedestrian, it's crucial to understand your legal rights. Deldar Legal has the steps you need to take to protect yourself.


Common Causes of UPS Accidents


UPS accidents can occur for various reasons, with driver fatigue being a significant factor. UPS drivers often work long hours, leading to fatigue and decreased reaction times. Distracted driving is another common cause; drivers frequently need to check delivery schedules and navigate unfamiliar areas, leading to potential distractions. Additionally, the pressure to meet delivery deadlines can cause drivers to speed.


Poorly maintained trucks can also lead to mechanical failures and subsequent accidents. These factors all play a role in commercial truck accidents and Uber and Lyft accidents, too. Understanding these common causes can help in identifying the factors involved in your accident and building a strong case.


Know Your Legal Rights


If you’re involved in a UPS accident, you have specific legal rights. One of the most important rights is the right to compensation. This can cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Additionally, UPS drivers have a duty of care to operate their vehicles safely. If they breach this duty and cause an accident, UPS can be held liable. You also have the right to legal representation, which is essential in fighting a legal battle against large companies.


Steps After A UPS Accident


Following a UPS accident, it is crucial to take immediate action. First and foremost, seek medical attention! Even if you don't feel injured, some injuries may not be immediately apparent. Soreness and whiplash could cause pain days after the incident. You will never know the full extent of your physical condition until a medical professional checks you out.


Second, document the scene by taking photos and videos. Any evidence you can gather from visual proof to witness statements can help your case. This documentation will be invaluable later on. It’s also important to report the accident to the police and obtain an official accident report. Finally, when you contact an attorney who specializes in UPS accidents, they will use all the collective evidence in building your case.


Hiring A UPS Accident Attorney


Personal injury attorneys possess the skills and knowledge to handle complex cases and deal with large corporations like UPS. Their negotiation skills are invaluable when dealing with insurance companies, which often attempt to minimize payouts. An attorney can negotiate on your behalf to ensure a fair settlement. Also, having a legal team manage your case allows you to focus on your recovery. This peace of mind is crucial during such a stressful time!
