UPS Truck Accident Lawyer

The United Parcel Service (UPS) operates nationwide, delivering packages and documents in their familiar brown UPS trucks to millions of customers every day. While most deliveries are completed without incident, some result in devastating accidents that leave victims with expensive medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Liability and insurance considerations in these cases can be more complex than imagined. UPS drivers are employees and any damages they cause during their duties is ultimately carried by the UPS company. Since the damages and insurance limits in UPS accidents are usually high, victims often get paid a settlement in the hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars. In other words, the stakes are high.

At Lalezary Law Firm, our award-winning attorneys represent personal injury and wrongful death victims of UPS accidents in California. If your accident happened due to the negligence of a UPS driver or the company itself, it is highly advised that you consult with us to learn more about your legal options for recovery. We provide our services on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay unless we win. Call us today for a free, confidential consultation.

UPS Truck Safety Rules and Regulations

Every year, UPS drivers travel millions of miles, so it’s not surprising that accidents occur. What sets UPS accidents apart from regular car accidents is the massive size and weight of the average delivery vehicle: a typical UPS delivery truck weighs between 16,000 and 24,000 pounds. This equates to a lot of force being transferred in a collision, which explains the often-devastating outcomes of such incidents.

In response to the dangers presented by trucks, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) passed rules and regulations for maintaining the safety standards of large tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles traveling across the nation and in local Los Angeles area neighborhoods. These regulations include:

  • Driver training requirements
  • Truck repair and maintenance requirements
  • Mandatory driver records for hours of service
  • Drug and alcohol prevention programs for drivers

These rules and regulations have certainly prevented countless accidents from happening since their implementation, saving countless lives, but unfortunately many still suffer serious injuries or death in UPS accidents.

Causes of UPS Truck Accidents

In large, vehicle-centric cities like Los Angeles, accident occurrence rates are higher than the national average for all types of vehicles, including UPS delivery trucks, due to the exceptional level of traffic. Add onto that the pressure UPS drivers face daily to deliver packages to recipients as fast as possible and it’s far from shocking to see why UPS accidents occur.

In most cases, fault can be attributed to negligent behavior on part of the UPS delivery truck driver, such as:

  • Reversing their vehicle carelessly after passing their destination
  • Making fast left turns or braking suddenly
  • Failing to yield when merging back into traffic after completing a delivery

Not all UPS truck accidents are caused by negligence on the road, some can be attributed to negligence that takes even prior to the moment a driver starts up a vehicle. For instance, lack of inspection and maintenance can lead to a disastrous breakdown on the road. It is the job of UPS accident attorneys to examine the details of a case to determine how the accident occurred as well as who is at fault.

Here at Lalezary Law Firm, our legal team has decades of combined experience in personal injury law and thus know how to handle complex truck accident cases. We have a proven track record of success in maximizing settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients.

What Our Clients Say

Honestly can't say enough positive things about Lalezary Law Firm! I got into a severe car accident at the end of 2016 and they've been with me every step of the way ever since. Almost 4 years! I want to thank everyone there especially Caitlyn, Shawn, and Yasmeen. They have been responsive, helpful, and reassuring and I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have the legal support that I was able to get along the years. They are super professional and really helped me get through this hardship in my life. I would definitely recommend!!!

Last year I contacted your law firm when I got into a car accident. the gentleman that handled my case, his name was Cesar. Cesar was very helpful and compassionate about my situation. He helped me get my car fixed very quickly and was super patient with me. He answered all of my questions and ensured me that everything will be taken care of. Once my case was settled I ended up getting more than I was expecting, which was amazing. I highly recommended Cesar and this law firm to anyone that needs help.

I was a client to Lalezary firm for about a year, the staff is really nice and professional. I would get updates on the case status and when I did call I would usually get a call back within 24 hours. I really appreciate the work that was done for me. I got the most out of my settlement and when I called to have a break down of the costs, Genesis was very patient and gave me a break down on all of it. I will definitely recommend this law firm to friends and family, as well as call them in the future if needed (hopefully not soon).

I had gotten into an accident and had no idea what to do. Friends and family recommended I get a lawyer since I was not at fault. I found this firm and I was beyond impressed. They handled everything for me from car insurance questions to finding doctors for me to visit. After my accident all I had to do was make appointments with various doctors to help with my pain. I give five stars because this firm went above and beyond and continued to follow up with me. I highly recommend if you are in need of a lawyer to use them.

The team at Lalezary we’re amazing! I am not the kind of person to seek legal counsel, but I was hit by a car while riding a motorcycle and the driver’s insurance was avoiding my attempts to get reimbursed. They were able to not only get a settlement that replaced my motorcycle, but they found me physical therapy which was close to my work. Now I am back to where I was physically before the accident and I am able to ride a motorcycle again. They were always responsive to my texts, calls, and emails. They even would systematically check to see how I was healing and if the support they linked me to was satisfactory.

This law firm is a team of miracle workers! Lalezary Law Firm saved me from suffering at another law firm from Century City. My case manager Jonathan was able to gather all the details from my accident ( literally within a week! ) and keeping me updated consistenty to keep me at ease. They work diligently and keep at it until your case is completed. I went through a car accident that almost took my life away but thanks to the higher power and Lalezary Law Firm, you won't even hesitate to choose them because I felt trust and integrity throughout my case and I feel happier in my life, which in my opinion, matters the most at the end of the day.
