Delivery Driver Accident Lawyer | San Antonio, Texas | Here for You

Delivery driver accidents happen fairly regularly here in Texas and for a variety of reasons. To start, delivery drivers are under immense pressure to fulfill one-and-two-day shipping promises for companies such as Amazon, which means that at times, these drivers may speed or drive while fatigued. In other cases, delivery drivers may crash when looking at their GPS. Delivery trucks are, in most cases, far bigger than standard motor vehicles, making them harder to maneuver, and when delivery drivers are inexperienced or otherwise in a hurry, it can result in rollover accidents, taking turns too wide and striking others, and failing to brake on time and striking other drivers, among other accidents unique to these bigger vehicles.

That said, matter how you were hurt, if the delivery driver was at fault, you can depend on a knowledgeable San Antonio, Texas auto accident lawyer right here at our legal team to fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve and need to move on with your life.

Assigning the Liable Party in Delivery Driver Accidents

If you were hurt because of a negligent delivery driver, you, along with your delivery driver accident lawyer, will have to assess the circumstances of your case and determine whether the driver is an independent contractor or an employee of a company. If the delivery driver worked for Instacart or Amazon, for example, they are considered an independent contractor, therefore, you’ll have to sue the driver’s personal insurance company for compensation–not the company itself.

That said, if you were hurt because of a negligent FedEx, UPS, or Postmate driver, you will sue the company itself, as they consider their drivers to be full-time employees. Unfortunately, bringing lawsuits against these companies is seldom easy, and in many cases, they will offer insufficient settlements. This is why you need an attorney familiar with handling cases involving these entities who can take an aggressive stance against them and help ensure you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Statute of Limitations in TX

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, in most cases, two years. Don’t wait any longer than two years to file your personal injury claim, for if you do, you’ll most likely permanently lose your right to sue. Our firm is prepared to begin the claims process on your behalf today.
