Delivery Driver Accident Liability

When delivery drivers get behind the wheel, they are responsible to others on the road. This includes:

  • Obeying traffic laws
  • Driving safely
  • Maintaining their vehicles

If a delivery driver acts negligently and causes an accident, they can be held liable for any resulting injuries and all other losses.

What Constitutes Negligence?

In all delivery driver accidents and other personal injury cases, the outcome of a claim or lawsuit requires proving the driver operated the vehicle in an unsafe, reckless, or negligent manner, causing a collision. There are four key elements to prove negligence in a delivery truck accident:

  • Duty of care: A party can be considered negligent if they owe the injured party a clear “duty of care,” which involves a responsibility to prevent harm from coming to another person.
  • Breach of duty of care: When harm befalls a person who is owed a duty of care by another party, this second party has breached their duty of care. This can result from either direct action or the failure to take direct action.
  • Injury: Negligence is often considered when injury is caused to the victim.
  • Causation: It must be proven that the underlying cause of the injury was directly related to the breach of duty of care.

When Is DoorDash, Amazon, or Postmates Liable?

In some cases, the delivery driver's employer may also be liable. For example, if the employer:

  • Failed to train the driver correctly
  • Did not conduct background checks
  • Required the driver to work long hours without breaks

It can be difficult to determine liability in these types of accidents, as multiple parties can potentially be involved. That is why it is crucial to have an experienced attorney on your side who can thoroughly investigate the accident and help determine liability.

Common causes of delivery driver accidents in Texas

Common causes of delivery driver accidents in Texas include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Fatigue
  • Failure to obey traffic laws

Delivery drivers are often under pressure to make deliveries quickly, which can lead to negligent driving behavior. In addition, many delivery drivers are independent contractors who may not be adequately trained or supervised by their employers. These factors can all contribute to a higher risk of accidents and injuries on the road.
