Chicago Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer
The consequences of a collision between a delivery truck and another vehicle or pedestrian are terrible and the cases involving delivery trucks and vans are not only real but very common. During the holidays last year, a 30-year old woman in Evanston, Ill. was struck and dragged underneath a UPS van.
The driver, who was cited by police, didn’t realize he had hit someone until he heard her screams. Earlier this year, a delivery truck driver was one of five people killed in a massive pileup near Lake Zurich. In that case, the commercial trucking company released a single prepared statement that read in full:
“On behalf of (company name redacted), its owners and employees, our sympathies and condolences go out to the families of those killed in this tragic accident. We are currently conducting an investigation to get the facts as well. No further comment will be made other than to say our thoughts and prayers are with the families.”
The fact of the matter is that thousands of packages are delivered to homes and businesses in Illinois every day. Nearly all of those packages are transported by a delivery truck or van of different makes, models and sizes. Delivery drivers are often under pressure to make deliveries on time and consequently push themselves and their delivery vehicles too far. When these negligent mistakes are made, they heighten the risk of a severe accident that injures other drivers, pedestrians or cyclists.
At Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. in Chicago, we represent clients who have suffered serious injuries in collisions with all manner of commercial trucks, including delivery vehicles. We simply do not believe that the importance of an on-time delivery is greater than the value of a human life. We are not intimidated by the name brand shipping conglomerates and their teams of lawyers who mount illogical defenses for their employees’ negligence.
Illinois residents rely heavily on the driving skills and abilities of others for their safety. This is especially true of individuals operating commercial tractor-trailers, delivery trucks and vans. Due to the sheer mass and weight of most commercial vehicles, they hold a greater potential to cause serious catastrophic injuries.
