Big Brown, or as it is known by its official corporate name, UPS – the United Parcel Service – has been around in one form or another since the early 1900s when they first started making deliveries in a Model T ford.
Known for being one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods of getting packages from one place to another, UPS has seen an enormous explosion of growth in their business in the last several year, particularly since internet shopping became popular, and there is no sign of that growth trend abating.
The increased volume of packages travelling across the country has translated into a concurrent growth in the number of the ubiquitous big brown UPS box trucks and vans racing around on every American and international highway and backstreet. Unfortunately, this has translated into a rapid increase in the number of accidents that UPS drivers have been involved in, and in many cases have been responsible for.
When a UPS delivery driver is involved in an accident, whether it is as a result of having parked their vehicle in a way that created hazardous conditions for other drivers who need to negotiated their way around the truck, or through other mishaps such as speeding, reckless driving, going through traffic lights or stop signs, or making dangerous lane changes, the liability for the accident they have caused rests not only with the driver but also with the company that stands behind them, as well as any other related parties such as other drivers or hazardous road conditions that may also have contributed to the accident.
Unfortunately, because UPS is such a big and well-known company, victims of accidents that have been caused by UPS drivers are often intimidated into thinking that they will not be able to collect damages from the company because they feel that they will be overpowered in court.
This is a shame, as all that is needed is a competent attorney who is familiar with pursuing cases against companies like UPS when they are liable for damages – an attorney with specialized background and training such as what those will find at the law firm of Danziger & De Llano.
UPS delivery trucks have been involved in a myriad of different delivery truck accidents, and in many of them the company and its drivers have been proven to be negligent. Many of these instances have been attributed to the tremendous pressure that the UPS drivers have been placed under to deliver the growing number of packages in a timely fashion; in some cases the drivers have been shown to be under so much pressure that they are driving under extreme fatigue conditions. In cases like this, it is clear that the fault lies with the corporate giant in addition to on the driver – but it takes a skilled, experienced attorney with tremendous resources behind them to be able to suss out the evidence of this and stand up to the corporate lawyers.
