Delivery Vehicle Accidents
Deliveries are on the rise in the United States and in Indiana where people expect goods and products to be delivered to their homes in a safe manner -- Amazon deliveries, pizza deliveries and all kinds of other deliveries are on the rise.
Although not all of these drivers are not necessarily required to carry a Commercial Driver's License, they are considered "professional" drivers by Shaw Law and will be characterized as such in front of any jury or in any settlement negotiations with their insurance companies.
As professional drivers, they are required to have the safety of the general public as their #1 goal -- not making money.
Oftentimes, delivery drivers are paid by the delivery. So, speed is an issue.
We had one such case against a private school bus company that struck a bicyclist in Indianapolis. We discovered in looking at the contracts between the school bus company and the IPS school system, that penalties for late drivers were being imposed upon the company.
Naturally, this led to school bus drivers speeding and taking chances with our children. That case resulted in a $5,000,000 verdict against the private school bus company.
We've won multi-million dollar verdicts in the past at Shaw Law by investigating this issue. By gathering contracts and documents that detail how the delivery driver is paid, a jury can understand that the goal of profits overcame the necessary objective of public safety.
