Reasons for UPS Truck Accidents

Like all truck accidents, UPS crashes have a variety of causes, some particular to vehicles that make commercial deliveries. UPS vehicles are at greater risk of causing accidents because:

  • UPS drivers work long days with little rest, making them prone to drowsy driving
  • UPS drivers may take stimulants to stay alert, impairing their driving ability
  • UPS drivers navigate busy streets to make numerous pickups and deliveries
  • UPS drivers may be distracted by GPS navigation devices, smartphones, and messages from their central office
  • UPS drivers must have specialized skills to maneuver large trucks and tractor-trailers safely

In addition, the UPS company may also be partially or totally responsible for accidents by:

  • Not conducting thorough driver background checks
  • Failing to properly train drivers
  • Assigning less-experienced, lower-paid drivers to routes to increase their profit margin
  • Keeping drivers to tight schedules that do not allow for sufficient rest time in violation of federal safety laws
  • Not inspecting and maintaining their vehicles

In many UPS accidents, both drivers and the UPS company can be held liable for the injuries caused by their vehicles. It takes an experienced UPS accident attorney to hold them accountable for your medical costs, loss of income, and other costs related to your injuries.

What Else You Need To Know About UPS Truck Accident Claims

UPS accidents involve unique challenges and questions and differ from typical traffic collision claims. First, UPS is self-insured for $1 million for each accident. Also, UPS drivers are employees of the company, which means UPS can be sued for damages if the driver is responsible. Notably, UPS vehicles are equipped with devices that record electronic data (e.g. speed, braking) that can be used as evidence in your claim. 

Because large companies like UPS have teams of high-power attorneys to handle accident claims, you need an attorney who will not back down and will fight for every dollar you deserve. That’s where J&Y Law comes in. We will work to hold the UPS driver, the company, and other parties responsible, such as another motorist or a warehouse employee who loaded the truck improperly. We know how to fight back against big companies like UPS and will always work in your best interests.
