What To Do After A Delivery Truck Accident?
The police will take extensive notes, statements from all the involved parties and any witnesses, and take photos as part of their accident report. If possible, you will also want to document as much as you can, including witness statements.
If your phone’s camera is working, be sure to take as many pictures as possible of the damage to your vehicle and any injuries you and any other passengers sustained. Doing so can help you ensure that anything the police missed is still documented.
What Are The Leading Causes of Delivery Truck Accidents?
Poorly Maintained Delivery Trucks – delivery trucks are often driven thousands of miles per week and if they are not properly cared for, they can become dangerous quickly. While worn brake pads or a cracked windshield must be dealt with if they occur on smaller vehicles, they can be the cause of a major traffic accident in a delivery truck.
Equipment Failure – Defective parts on a delivery truck may not be the fault of the driver, but they can turn deadly. Your attorney will be able to tell if a delivery truck company or manufacturer may be liable for your accident in addition to the delivery truck driver.
Improperly Loaded Cargo – Loading the beds of commercial delivery trucks must be done carefully and in accordance with the law. If they are loaded improperly, the contents on the delivery truck may spill out onto the road and cause accidents and injuries.
