When Delivery Companies Are More Concerned With Money Than Safety

Online shopping has become a multibillion-dollar industry. You can’t drive more than a few blocks without encountering a delivery truck bringing packages to someone. The proliferation of commercial delivery vehicles has led to more traffic accidents, and usually the people in the smaller passenger vehicles bear the brunt of those collisions.

The big delivery companies and national retailers have fleets of trucks — and squadrons of lawyers. If you were injured in a collision with a delivery vehicle, you may need legal firepower of your own to fight for compensation. The Houghton Law Firm, LLC has extensive experience with truck accident investigations. We know how to hold those corporations accountable for their profit-driven practices that make our roads less safe.

Holding Package Delivery Services Accountable

Delivery drivers are in a hurry. They have a schedule to meet and they can’t go home until all the packages are dropped off. Too often that means truck drivers are speeding, changing lanes without looking, rolling through stop signs, looking at their onboard computer instead of the road, or simply too fatigued to safely operate a big truck. We have the experience and resources to take on the big package delivery corporations, online retailers and food delivery companies, such as:

  • FedEx, UPS, DHL, Spee Dee
  • Amazon, WalMart, Target
  • Uber Eats, Grubhub, DoorDash

All of these companies have large commercial insurance policies on their tractor-trailers and local delivery vehicles. But accessing that insurance coverage is easier said than done. The insurance companies and defense firms will use every tactic to downplay injuries or deny liability. John Houghton is a accomplished trial lawyer and tireless in pursuit of justice. He will not rest until he has secured every dollar possible to cover his clients’ injuries, losses and hardships.

John oversees a professional investigation into the negligence that caused the crash, from shoddy maintenance and overloaded trucks to pressure from employers to meet deadlines and ignore safety regulations. Delivery companies, like every other employer in the U.S., are desperate for workers, which often leads to negligent hiring and training of drivers who have a history of accidents or lack the experience and judgment to pilot a 10-ton truck.
