Delivery Trucks Cause Accidents Across San Antonio
Delivery services have been on the rise for a long time, and in recent years, they have only become more ubiquitous. However, delivery trucks and their drivers are often sent into residential areas at all hours, on tight schedules, with little rest. This is a recipe for dangerous conditions, and you or your loved ones may face serious injuries because of it.
At Raúl B. Rodriguez Law, P.C., our personal injury attorneys have a history of providing aggressive, persistent legal services to injured people across San Antonio. We understand the law in Texas and the needs of Texans suffering from injuries caused by delivery trucks. We’re ready to fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Common Causes Of Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery trucks operate in ways that other commercial vehicles do not. While tractor-trailer trucks are a serious risk on the highway, delivery trucks spend most of their time in neighborhoods. However, they share many of the same risks when it comes to causing accidents:
- Poor driver training or judgment
- Poor visibility due to conditions or the vehicle itself
- Improper maintenance of the vehicle
- Driver fatigue
- Speeding due to schedules
The accidents caused by delivery trucks can often be traced to one of the above causes or some other easily preventable issue. However, many companies find it cheaper to take risks than to make their delivery systems safer.
Large Companies Benefit From Denying You Compensation
Delivery trucks are often under the flags of large corporations – such as Amazon Prime, UPS, FedEx and others – who are focused on their bottom lines. This means faster, more frequent trips and fighting every injury claim against their company. This makes it difficult to take on these cases, and it can be intimidating.

We’re on your side, and we don’t back down. Reach out to us for a free consultation by calling 210-899-3822 or sending an email using this form.
