Injured In A Crash With A Delivery Van?
Delivery vans roll out of the warehouse in fleets, dispersing to deliver packages across the city. With online commerce bigger than ever, there are more and more delivery trucks all the time. Those truck drivers are working long hours on a tight schedule, a trend that has already led to an increase in collisions between commercial vans and other motorists.
A delivery truck is several times heavier than a car or pickup, which means the people in the noncommercial vehicle suffer the brunt of the impact. The Law Offices of Gonzalez & Associates helps those victims recover compensation. We have brought personal injury claims against FedEx, UPS, Amazon and other freight companies.

Why Commercial Delivery Trucks Are So Dangerous
Box trucks and delivery vans are heavy and hard to maneuver. They are moving more packages than ever, meaning more trucks on the road. Many of the drivers are relatively inexperienced, and they are under pressure to meet deadlines. Back at the plant, maintenance crews have limited time to service trucks before they are out on the road again the next morning.
Our attorneys are well versed in truck accident cases, including crashes involving commercial fleet vehicles. We look for evidence of negligence on the part of commercial drivers and their employers:
- Driver fatigue from long shifts
- Driver distraction
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Pulling into traffic without looking
- Shoddy maintenance and inspection
- Inadequate training or background checks
Compensation In Delivery Van Accidents
In a minor collision with a commercial truck, your no-fault insurance (personal injury protection) pays your initial medical bills. But if you or your passengers suffered injuries, you will need to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the freight company to recover additional damages. There is no substitute for experience in these cases.
Just as UPS, FedEx and Amazon have fleets of trucks, they have legal departments that handle the inevitable accidents. Their goal is to limit their liability by denying fault or settling claims quickly. At Gonzalez & Associates, our goal is to make sure you are fully compensated for your past and future medical care, your lost income, any lasting disability, and your pain and suffering. We are prepared to negotiate tough or go to trial to get justice for our clients.
