Why Do UPS Drivers Keep Hitting Pedestrians?

Updated on: 2/7/2019

Davis Law Group has handled several accident cases involving UPS drivers and has successfully filed lawsuits against UPS on several occasions. 

There have been an unusually high number of pedestrian accidents involving UPS trucks in recent years.  In most cases, the victims were in marked crosswalks.  From Washington State to Virginia there have been multiple, deadly incidents involving UPS trucks striking pedestrians.  

Is There A UPS Pedestrian Accident Epidemic?

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there are over 5 million accidents every year involving commercial vehicles resulting in over 30,000 fatalities and 1.5 injuries each year. 

The following is a listing of just a few of the accidents involving UPS delivery trucks and pedestrians in the past few years.  Wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits have been filed against United Parcel Service in most of these cases.
