Car accidents involving commercial vehicles are NOT handled like normal passenger-vehicle accidents. These types of accidents can be rather complicated in nature because of the liability and coverage issues that are likely to be involved. For instance, were you aware that accidents with commercial trucks are subject to federal transportation laws in addition to state law?
Common causes of UPS truck accidents.
Truck drivers in general have time schedules that are sometimes unrealistic, and this includes UPS employees. The drivers are sometimes forced to rush through deliveries, which can lead to serious and often fatal accidents that result from the failure of those drivers to exercise reasonable safety precautions.
UPS drivers are required to follow the federal regulations as set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The regulations are put in place as the “law of the land” when it comes to safely operating any commercial truck or 18-wheeler on public roads.
You need to make sure that your attorney is well-versed in commercial vehicle accident law in order to give yourself the best chance at a successful outcome.
The need for an attorney.
No one who is involved in a motor vehicle accident with a UPS truck should ever attempt to file a personal injury claim without an attorney. It’s important to remember that lawsuits against large companies such as UPS will take much longer, and as such, require more cash outlay during the litigation process than other types of lawsuits. Unless you have the capitol to fund your own case (cost of investigations, hiring expert witnesses, etc.), try to find an attorney who will front all of these costs for you.
Lawsuits are not new to UPS, and their insurance companies have the financial means necessary to maintain a staff of in-house attorneys for the purpose of eliminating even the most-legitimate lawsuits.
The average individual lacks the financial resources necessary to go up against large corporate giants like UPS. Even if the case appears to be clearly “black and white,” if you’re not intimately familiar with the nuances of filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can easily end up losing your claim due to a simple filing mistake.
Even in those cases where UPS admits fault, this does not mean they will be able to collect damages as a result of an accident. You only get one shot at bringing your lawsuit. Do not step into the arena without being fully-prepared!
