You can’t drive anywhere these days without seeing them: brown UPS trucks, white Fed Ex trucks, and blue Amazon vans. They dart back and forth on our roads and highways every day in a never-ending struggle to keep up with the insatiable demands of the American consumer.
Inevitably, they will occasionally be involved in motor vehicle accidents. This begs the question: what is the best course of action if you are injured in an accident caused by someone driving one of these commercial delivery vehicles?
The best course of action is to seek the advice and representation of a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. These companies will all have lawyers ready to look for any possible reason to deny you the financial compensation you deserve. Having your own representation is the best way to make sure you have an experienced advocate sorting through the legal and insurance issues to make sure you have the resources you need to cover your medical costs, lost wages and other injury-related expenses.
Don’t Sign Away Your Rights
If you remember nothing else from this post, remember the following: do not sign anything from these companies or their insurance carriers before you speak to a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer about your rights.
