El Paso UPS Delivery Accident Lawyer

UPS Accident Attorney Serving Texas and New Mexico

More and more people are choosing to order goods online rather than driving around to different stores looking for the items they need. Delivery is convenient for busy people, for parents, and for those who do not drive. Package delivery is an enormous industry. Those who work as delivery drivers for UPS or another agency often report that they are extremely busy almost every day. Unfortunately, "in a rush" all too often translates to "driving carelessly and injuring someone as a result."

The Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC has seen many accidents involving UPS delivery trucks. Unfortunately, UPS trucks are capable of causing severe harm to others who have the misfortune of sharing the roads with a less-than-cautious delivery driver. If you have been injured by a UPS delivery driver - or a Fedex or Amazon driver - you likely have recourse in the form of a personal injury lawsuit.

Texas Attorney for Proving UPS Driver Negligence

UPS delivery drivers have an important responsibility to make safety their first priority. Even a "minor" accident involving a UPS truck can inflict serious harm on pedestrians or the occupants of smaller vehicles. There is little room for error. Unfortunately, not all UPS drivers take this duty as seriously as they should.

When Cal investigates UPS truck accidents, he often finds clear negligence on the part of the UPS driver. Common mistakes we uncover include:

  • Reversing carelessly - It can be challenging to back up a big truck, and drivers may strike pedestrians or other vehicles if the appropriate caution is not used.
  • Distraction - People who drive for work may overestimate their skill and falsely believe that they can multitask, such as by texting while driving.
  • Lack of training - UPS has a high turnover rate, and the company is motivated to get new drivers on the road quickly, sometimes without proper training.
  • Overloaded trucks - Trucks may be loaded over capacity, leading to loss of control or dropped loads.
  • Intoxication - Drug and alcohol testing of a UPS driver may show that substance use may have been a factor in a crash.

One of our first steps is proving the cause of the crash. Through careful investigation, we are often able to show exactly what the driver in question did wrong. While Cal uses a variety of investigative tactics, security cameras in commercial or residential areas often prove helpful.

El Paso County Lawyer for Compensation After a UPS Accident

Cal is aggressive in pursuing full compensation after a client is injured by a UPS driver. He will carefully review each category of compensation available in order to calculate the amount of damages to demand. You may be able to recover:

  • Medical costs - This includes any ongoing or future care you will need related to the accident. For example, if you will need a repeat surgery or require home health aids, these expenses are likely compensable.
  • Pain and suffering - The physical and emotional pain caused by these accidents can be immense.
  • Property damage - If your car, house, mailbox, or other property was damaged, this is likely covered.
  • Lost wages - Most people who are injured by a UPS driver will need to take time off from work. For those who will not be able to return for a long time, if ever, future lost income can also be compensated.

These costs can be substantial. You should not be the one worrying about how to pay medical bills or how your family will stay afloat after an accident that was not your fault.
