UPS Truck Accident Attorney

United Parcel Service (UPS) delivers tens of thousands of packages every day in the United States. There are UPS delivery trucks visiting office buildings and homes in almost every city, small town, and neighborhood each day. UPS delivery drivers are pressured to make on-time deliveries and are often rushed to make a delivery and get on to the next stop.

This obsession with efficiency and speed sometimes creates dangerous situations that cause UPS trucks to be involved in accidents with other vehicles or pedestrians.  To have a fair chance after a UPS truck accident, victims need someone with UPS litigation experience on their side. 

Unfortunately, delivery truck accidents, including accidents involving UPS trucks, happen every day. In the 24-month period prior to Oct. 18, 2012, UPS drivers were reported to have been involved in 1,448 crashes, 541 involving injuries, including 39 deaths.

Attorney Chris Davis of Davis Law Group has handled multiple accident cases involving UPS trucks and has represented thousands of people injured in large truck crashes in Washington state over the past 25 years, fighting to even the playing field.  Call 206-727-4000 for a FREE consultation.

Despite UPS's safety record, accidents involving their trucks still occur almost daily. Those accidents result in fatalities far too often.

And while UPS may do its best to prevent accidents, many times this multi-million dollar company does not step up to the plate and compensate injured victims. A company the size of UPS has its own attorneys that work to deny or minimize accident claims.

Common Causes of UPS Truck Crashes

Over the years, federal and state authorities have put in place measures to reduce the number of collisions and truck accident fatalities. These regulations have not resulted in a large reduction in accidents. 

Here some of the most common causes of UPS truck accidents.

Types of UPS Truck Collisions

Understanding the different types of collisions involving UPS trucks is important for accident victims. UPS truck accidents of all types lead to some of the most severe wrecks seen on American roadways. Due to the sheer size alone, UPS trucks can cause considerable property damage and cause catastrophic injury on a number of innocent victims.

These are some of the most common types of UPS truck collisions:

  • T-bone collision. When a truck driver runs a red light or blows through a stop sign, there is a good chance it will result in a T-bone collision.
  • Head-on collision. If a truck driver goes over the center line and collides with another vehicle, the crash will almost always result in serious injury or death.
  • Underride/override. If a passenger vehicle crashes underneath a truck, or a truck rear-ends another car, the wreckage is usually severe.
  • Rollover accident. Trucks that tip over on highways may crash down and hit other vehicles.
  • Left-turn accidents. Trucks must make sure they have enough room to safely make a left turn, otherwise, vehicles may crash into the trailer.
  • Jackknife accident. When a truck driver brakes hard and fast, it causes the trailer to shift outward at a 90-degree angle in front of the cab.
  • Backing accidents. Truck drivers that don’t take the proper precautions while backing may cause injuries.

Damages Recoverable After a UPS Truck Accident

Your personal injury attorney should be aware of all the potential damages recoverable in a UPS accident case. While some may be obvious — medical bills, rehab, etc. — others aren’t. Only an experienced attorney can maximize your claim and put the most money back in your pocket.

Damages in a truck accident case may include:

Accident Reconstruction Experts In UPS Cases

At Davis Law Groupattorney Chris Davis works with the top trucking experts in UPS truck accident cases. Many accident lawyers make the mistake of retaining experts later in the case, only to realize too late that experts should’ve been brought in right after the crash. 

Experts may be used on your case for a variety of reasons, including to determine fault and make a valuation of your damages. UPS and its insurance company is sure to contest parts of your case, and it’s important that you have experts on your side fighting for you.

Potential experts include:

United Parcel Service's Circle of Honor

UPS drivers who make it through 25 years of service without an "avoidable" accident are honored with a ceremony, a patch on their sleeve documenting the number of accident-free years and a bomber jacket.  While this is an impressive distinction, only 7 percent of UPS's 102,000 drivers on the road are members of this elite group. 

The award-winning car accident lawyers at Davis Law Group has handled several serious injury cases involving delivery truck companies including UPS and others. Our attorneys have the necessary expertise and experience to take on large corporations when their drivers make life-changing mistakes behind the wheel.
