Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer
Table of Contents
As e-commerce and online shopping begin to surpass brick-and-mortar stores, hundreds of thousands of people count on delivery services every day. As technology continues to evolve and online shopping continues to grow, so too does the number of delivery trucks on Florida’s already busy roads. Trucks from UPS, USPS, FedEx, Amazon, and food delivery companies fill the roads throughout Florida making deliveries as rapidly as they can. If you get into a collision with one of these vehicles, finding compensation from a responsible party can be a difficult process. If this happens, contact the lawyers at Freedland Harwin Valori Gander, PL.
Liability for Delivery Truck Accidents
Liability for a delivery truck accident comes down to the question of fault. Who caused the crash? If the driver of the truck caused the accident through some act of negligence, liability can fall on both the driver and their employer. Drivers are also potentially not properly rested, rushing to make deliveries, or otherwise distracted. Trucking companies are usually liable for the actions of their employees.
For most car accident cases in Florida, victims have four years from the date of the accident to file a claim against the responsible party if the injuries were reasonably apparent at the time of the accident. If this party is a government entity, the deadline for filing is shorter. In most cases, victims must file a Notice of Intent with the alleged defendant within three years of the accident. If the claim is for wrongful death, claimants have two years from the date of death. Talk to a lawyer as soon as possible to be sure you do not miss an important deadline because this could result in the inability to recover damages.

I met Dan when I was in therapy and he came and right away it felt like a family member visiting you, a connection, like a brother. He’s been on both sides of the fence. He’s represented the hospitals and the doctors, and then he jumped over to the other side. It is a fantastic group, it was like Bell Belichick leading the team. They changed my life and still check on me. I recommend FHV to anybody and they thank me.
I met Dan about a year ago. He never made me feel that it was about the money. When he spoke with me he was asking how Bill (my brother) was and if he was doing better. He made me feel like family and always asked if I was alright. That means a lot. Everyday is something new and I challenge for my brother. I would recommend [FHV] to everybody because I really believe that they’re helping from their hearts… from a really good place.
For anyone to represent anyone for 5 years and take the time to do it, not once just “get it out of the way” and “get it done with”. It was about what was best for Hunter and our family. It was about the case and the people.
