Frederick Delivery Vehicle Accidents Lawyers

Fighting for Justice for Those Injured in Delivery Vehicle Crashes

Delivery vehicle accidents occur when a vehicle transporting goods to and from customers and companies collides with other cars or pedestrians. These accidents can be devastating, as delivery vehicles are often larger and heavier than the average passenger car, leading to more severe injuries and damages. When a delivery driver’s negligence causes a crash, victims may be entitled to pursue compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. Seeking the guidance of an experienced attorney is vital if you or a loved one has been involved in a delivery vehicle accident. The process for filing a claim can be complicated, particularly if you have suffered a serious injury. Attempting to navigate the legal system on your own can be challenging. An attorney can explain your rights and options, investigate, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in court if necessary.

Common Causes of Delivery Vehicle Accidents

Delivery vehicle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons.

Some of the most common causes include the following:

  • Distracted driving: The driver engages in activities like texting or eating instead of focusing on the road.
  • Failure to follow traffic laws: Delivery drivers are often on tight schedules and time constraints. Therefore, they might speed, run red lights, or engage in other unlawful activities to make deadlines.
  • Cargo overload: Improperly loaded goods can affect the stability and handling of the delivery vehicle.
  • Inadequate maintenance: Equipment can fail if the vehicle is poorly maintained, causing accidents.

Our delivery vehicle accident lawyers in Frederick work diligently to identify those responsible for our clients' injuries and damages.

Compensation Available for Victims

Victims of delivery vehicle accidents may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and losses.

This can include financial recovery for the following:

  • Medical expenses, such as hospital bills, medication costs, and rehabilitation expenses.
  • Lost wages can also be recovered if the victim could not work due to injuries.
  • Pain and suffering, which refers to the physical and emotional distress experienced by the victim, can also be compensated.
  • Property damage, including damage to the victim's vehicle or property, can also be recovered.

At Metzger Wickersham, we work tirelessly to build strong cases and fight for our clients' rights, helping them move forward with their lives with the resources needed to recover and rebuild.

Seeking Financial Recovery

Recovering compensation after a delivery vehicle accident can be challenging and complex, beginning with establishing fault. This is critical in any personal injury case, as it determines who is responsible for the victim's injuries and damages.

Fault may lie with the driver's negligence or with other reckless or careless behaviors by anyone within the chain of delivery, such as the delivery company, cargo loader, or maintenance company. However, delivery companies often aggressively fight claims, making it difficult for victims to obtain the compensation they deserve without the help of an experienced attorney.

We have the insights and resources to investigate delivery vehicle accidents thoroughly and identify the responsible party.

How a Lawyer Can Help

Victims may feel overwhelmed after an accident. This is where an attorney can help. A lawyer can investigate and gather evidence, including witness statements, police reports, and medical records. The evidence can be used to build a strong case and support the victim's claim for compensation.

Additionally, a lawyer can communicate with insurance companies on the victim's behalf, ensuring that their rights are protected and seeking a just offer. In some cases, resolving through negotiation is possible. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, an attorney can also provide representation in court.

The claims process can be intimidating for victims. With an experienced attorney, they can confidently navigate the legal system in pursuit of justice.
