Negligence and UPS Truck Accidents

UPS truck drivers face a grueling schedule. They have to deliver hundreds of packages within a single day. To maintain this schedule, they must act quickly, following a precise route with little room for error.

This means that many UPS drivers do unsafe actions to stay on schedule. Some examples are:

  • Looking at their phones or other electronic devices while driving
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Parking illegally
  • Running yellow lights
  • Speeding

Any of these activities can result in an accident. If you are hit by a UPS truck, a Saeedian Law Group personal injury attorney may be able to help you get compensation by investigating to determine whether the driver’s negligence caused the accident.

Why Negligence Matters

California is a fault state. This means that when two drivers get into a car accident, the insurance company for the driver at fault in the accident pays compensation to the other driver. If our law firm can prove that the UPS driver was responsible for the accident, the insurance company for UPS is responsible for your damages.

Dealing With the Insurance Company

Just because the other driver was responsible for the accident does not mean the insurance company will be eager to pay you compensation. Just the opposite, unfortunately.

Commercial insurance companies seek to pay as little compensation as possible and have an army of lawyers working for them. By retaining a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, you increase your chances of getting the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

Saeedian Law Group attorneys have experience negotiating with commercial truck insurance companies. Our lawyers will work to get you the best compensation possible, given the circumstances surrounding the accident.

Understanding Damages in a UPS Truck Accident

How much money will you get from a UPS truck accident settlement? That depends on the circumstances of the claim, including the severity of your injuries. As a good rule of thumb, the more serious your injuries, the more compensation you can receive.

Typically, the majority of the damages you could receive may compensate you for two types of losses: medical bills and lost wages. If the other party is responsible for the accident, you are eligible to receive compensation for the full extent of all medical bills, including post-treatment therapy.

The same is true for lost wages. Furthermore, if you miss enough work time, you might also be eligible to receive compensation for lost opportunities. This takes into account, for example, that you might have received a promotion if you hadn’t been injured. An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to calculate these losses.

Additionally, if the quality of your life has decreased due to the injuries you suffered, a California personal injury lawyer will pursue non-economic damages for pain and suffering. This represents compensation for suffering that cannot be calculated precisely.

A personal injury lawyer from Saeedian Law Group can calculate the value of each of these types of damages and any other incidental damages that you are eligible for.

 After gathering extensive documentation for each of these damages, our law firm will negotiate with the insurance company to attempt to reach a settlement that will get you fair compensation as quickly as possible.

Consulting a Lawyer Before Signing Anything

UPS is a well-oiled machine. When a driver gets into an accident, the bureaucracy starts up immediately. Part of that bureaucracy will attempt to settle the case as quickly as possible. This usually involves a representative of the company offering you money if you sign some paperwork.

Regardless of how fair the deal seems, only sign something if you had an attorney look at it first. A personal injury lawyer from Saeedian Law Group can determine whether the offer is fair. Usually, it will not be. However, even an unfair offer can be used as a starting point to negotiate reasonable compensation for your injuries.
