Dallas UPS Truck Rollover Accident On The Side Of The Street

Dallas Attorneys for Clients Injured in Crashes With UPS Trucks and Vans

United Parcel Service—more commonly known as UPS—is one of the biggest delivery companies in the world, operating more than 125,000 vehicles and delivering over 24 million packages and documents every day. With so many vehicles and drivers that travel billions of miles each year, motor vehicle accidents are inevitable. In fact, thousands of these accidents take place every year throughout the United States.

UPS trucks are larger than typical passenger cars and trucks, and when they are fully loaded, can weigh upwards of ten tons. Tractor-trailers owned by UPS are even bigger and heavier. This means that Texas residents who are involved in a collision may suffer multiple types of serious injuries, as well as significant damage to their vehicles or other property. To successfully recover compensation following an accident with a UPS delivery driver, victims need to be represented by an attorney who has experience with these types of cases.

At Clark Law Group, we provide legal help to victims of all kinds of car and truck accidents, and we understand the complex factors that can play a role in injury cases involving UPS drivers. We know how difficult it can be for injured people in these situations, especially if they are concerned about how they will be able to hold a massive corporation responsible for their injuries. We believe that those who have worked hard to provide for themselves and their families should not have their lives ruined because of someone else's negligence. With this in mind, our lawyers are fully prepared to pursue the full compensation necessary to address the injuries and losses that you have suffered.

Accidents Involving UPS Employees or Independent Contractors

UPS delivery drivers may be involved in motor vehicle collisions for a multitude of reasons, and in many cases, these accidents are caused by a driver's negligence. Delivery drivers may drive unsafely so that they can meet deadlines and deliver the maximum number of packages in the shortest possible time. Dangerous actions such as speeding, failing to obey traffic signals, or making illegal turns or lane changes can have deadly results. Drivers may also cause accidents due to distractions such as using a cell phone or GPS navigation system while behind the wheel, or they may become fatigued and drowsy after a long shift of driving and unloading packages.

Liability for accidents involving UPS drivers could be affected by whether a driver is considered to be an employee of UPS or an independent contractor. A company is responsible for the actions of its employees, and if a driver acted in a way that put others at risk, the company may be held liable for injuries and damages suffered by others. However, if a driver is an independent contractor rather than a UPS employee, the company may claim that it is not liable for the driver's actions.

Our attorneys can address situations involving both employees and independent contractors and will work to demonstrate that UPS was responsible for the injuries suffered by innocent people. We will review company records and other forms of evidence to determine whether UPS failed to take the correct steps to protect public safety, such as by failing to provide drivers with the proper training or failing to properly screen drivers to ensure that they had a clean driving record and were able to meet the requirements of the position. We can also look at practices followed by UPS that may have increased the likelihood of accidents, such as encouraging drivers to deliver more packages more quickly or failing to enforce policies meant to protect people's safety.
