Online shopping has exploded over the last few years, particularly since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. This has significantly increased the total amount of delivery vehicles on the roadway. Unfortunately, accidents involving these vehicles do occur, and they often lead to severe injuries. At Bonilla Law Firm PLLC, our Austin delivery driver accident lawyers are here to help. We have the resources necessary to handle every aspect of complex injury claims, and we want to make sure that you recover compensation for your losses.
Understanding who is responsible for damages after a delivery accident can be challenging. Just like any other accident, liability must be determined. In the event the delivery driver is responsible for the collision, it will then have to be determined whether or not the delivery driver is an independent contractor, whether they work for a delivery company, or if they work directly for a major retailer.
Determining who actually holds liability can be challenging, and we strongly encourage you to contact a skilled delivery driver accident attorney who can handle every aspect of your claim.
Regardless of who will be held liable for the incident, if the delivery driver caused the accident, then there should be an insurance carrier involved. Typically, delivery drivers have to carry higher amounts of insurance than regular drivers on Texas roadways.
Insurance should cover your expenses if you are an accident victim. This could include, but is not limited to, the following:
There is no set amount of compensation available in the aftermath of a delivery driver accident in Austin. The total amount of compensation paid to crash victims will vary depending on the severity of the injuries, the level of property damage, total lost wages, and the documented level of pain and suffering.
