Amazon, FedEx, and UPS vehicles have been all over our roads this holiday season. With increased traffic, the risk of collisions goes up. If one of these large trucks has caused a crash, you may be wondering what legal options are out there.

When injury crashes caused by delivery truck drivers occur, the team at Foley Law Firm can help. Our offices in Scranton and Stroudsburg, PA, have assisted many people following delivery truck collisions. Let’s look at some potential legal options following these kinds of truck accidents.

Delivery Truck Crashes With Other Vehicles

When delivery trucks cause accidents with other vehicles, the damage and injuries can be severe. This is especially true of delivery trucks barrelling through intersections or striking any commuter vehicles from the side (a t-bone collision). We can help determine who was at fault in the crash and build a strong case for you.

In addition to accidents with other drivers, we can also help when delivery vehicles hit parked cars. Investigating these matters can be difficult, though law enforcement and our own team can check for CCTV footage, security camera videos, or witness accounts of these kinds of accidents.

Delivery Truck Crashes With Pedestrians and Bicyclists

Accidents in which a delivery truck hits a pedestrian or bike can cause catastrophic if not fatal injuries. People on the street or on their bikes have so little protection from the force of impact.

In these kinds of accidents, our attorneys will help seek damages for long-term medical care as well as the lasting effects of a permanent disability. If the collision is fatal, we can seek damages related to the preventable death of your loved one.

Delivery Truck Crashes With Homes and Other Property

Sometimes a delivery truck doesn’t hit a vehicle or person. These delivery trucks could instead hit your house or property around the house such as gates, fences, and mailboxes. Any damage to your property caused by a delivery vehicle may be grounds for filing a lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have to Seek Legal Action?

In the state of Pennsylvania, you have two years from the date of the collision to seek legal action. You will likely not be able to file a legal claim after that two-year period has passed.

It’s important to file your claim as soon as possible to ensure the fidelity of any evidence or witness testimony related to the delivery truck accident.

How Our Lawyers Can Help

Truck accident cases can be challenging, especially with major companies such as Amazon and FedEx involved. Our Northeastern Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys will not be intimidated by these large corporate interests. We can negotiate a settlement or take your case to trial without compromising your integrity or minimizing the hurt you experienced.

While we work on settlement negotiation and litigation, you and your loved ones can focus on healing, mourning, and rebuilding.
