  • What Are Common Types of Delivery Driver Accidents?

    The most persistent hazards that drivers face during their shifts are motor vehicle accidents. These accidents can result in severe or fatal injuries. 

    Drivers often make frequent stops, going in and out of their vehicles to drop off packages. This also places them in danger of being struck by another car or truck. 

    However, motor vehicle collisions are only one of the dangers that delivery drivers experience.

    Some of the other types of accidents experienced by delivery drivers are described in detail below:

    Dog Bites

    When a negligent pet owner does not properly restrain their animal, delivery drivers may suffer attacks. Dog attacks can result in serious and lifelong medical complications. 

    How much can delivery drivers get compensated in dog bite lawsuits? It will depend on the severity of physical damage they sustain. If you have been bitten by someone’s dog, speak with a personal injury attorney immediately.

    Slip and Trip Injuries

    Delivery drivers are usually required to leave packages on residential doorsteps or inside businesses. If a property owner has not maintained their premises, delivery drivers may trip or slip. 

    Some of the typical causes of slip and trip injuries include the following: 

    • Broken sidewalks or curbs
    • Uneven pavement
    • Debris or objects in walkways
    • Drastic changes in floor elevation
    • Spills or leaks in front of a property
    • Icy sidewalks 

    Falling accidents can cause significant injuries. When victims fall, they may sustain broken bones, head injuries, or spinal damage.

    Whiplash

    This type of neck injury occurs as the result of a rapid back-and-forth motion. Whiplash is a common injury in rear-end motor vehicle collisions but can also result from other types of accidents. 

    Most whiplash victims recover with proper medication and treatments. However, the symptoms of this type of injury can be painful and disabling:

    • Stiffness and pain in the neck
    • Pain when moving the neck
    • Inability to adjust or move neck muscles
    • Inability to sleep
    • Irritability and mood shifts
    • Pain or tenderness in shoulders, upper back, and arms
    • Numbness and tenderness in the arms
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Blurry vision
    • Tinnitus (persistent ringing in the ears)
    • Persistent headaches 

    If you have experienced any of these signs or symptoms, it is important to seek medical care. It is also critical to speak with an attorney and ask this question: “How much can delivery drivers get compensated for a whiplash injury?”

    Repetitive Motion Injuries

    Delivery drivers are required to engage in many repetitive motions throughout the course of their workdays. They often need to lift and move packages when making deliveries. 

    Over time, these movements can cause drivers to sustain physical damage and injuries. One of the most common repetitive motion injuries is carpal tunnel syndrome. 

    Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve experiences continual pressure. Some of the typical symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include the following: 

    • Tingling and numbness in the hands
    • Decreased range of motion in the wrists
    • Weakness in the hands
    • Pain in the wrists, fingers, and palms 

    When delivery drivers experience these symptoms, they may be able to recover financially through a workers’ compensation claim. The accomplished Morgan and Morgan legal team will oversee your workers’ comp claim or appeal and help you secure the benefits you have earned.

  • How Much Can Delivery Drivers Get Compensated Through Workers’ Compensation?

    Most employers are legally required to hold workers’ compensation insurance policies. This type of insurance coverage is meant to provide payments to those employees who become injured in work-related incidents.  

    Workers’ compensation benefits are very helpful for delivery drivers following an accident. If you have been harmed while driving your delivery route, you have the right to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefit payments. 

    A workers’ compensation claim may be filed to cover certain financial losses from a work injury: 

    • Current and anticipated future medical bills
    • A portion of lost wages from missed work
    • Prescription medication costs 

    Typically, delivery drivers must file for this type of compensation in the wake of a work-related injury. It is not likely that a delivery driver will be permitted to bring a typical personal injury lawsuit against an employer. 

    Workers’ compensation payments do not cover any of the personal or emotional damage that results from a work-related injury. Any non-economic losses can only be recovered through additional legal action, if appropriate.  

    Also, many workers’ compensation claimants face denials because of application errors or other issues. To ensure that your workers’ comp application is as strong as possible, reach out to the legal professionals at the firm of Morgan & Morgan. 

    The workers’ compensation application requirements vary by state. Fortunately, our attorneys have helped injured workers across the country recover the payments to which their labor entitles them. 

    If your application has been denied, you still have options. Our knowledgeable legal team can review your case and help you appeal the denial through your state’s workers’ compensation board. 

    We will diligently fight to secure the money that you need to get your life back on track. Do not settle for less than the full value of the earned benefits that you deserve. Schedule a consultation to discuss the circumstances of your delivery injury with our accomplished legal team.

  • What Is The Process of Filing a Lawsuit to Recover Work-Related Injury Damages?

    Workers’ compensation payments are the most common way for injured employees to recover financially after an accident. But in some cases, injured delivery drivers can pursue additional legal action to secure compensation. 

    While you are likely not allowed to file a legal claim against your employer, you may be able to file suit against another party that caused your accident. In other words, you can hold any other responsible individuals or groups accountable through a personal injury claim.  

    When you schedule a consultation with a Morgan and Morgan tort attorney, we will carefully review the circumstances that led to your accident. If someone other than your employer contributed to the injury you sustained, you could pursue financial recovery from them.  

    Some parties who may hold partial liability for your injury include the following: 

    • Homeowners
    • Business owners
    • Other property owners
    • Drivers of other motor vehicles
    • Pedestrians
    • Bicyclists 

    Following a personal injury, it is normal to ask, “How much can delivery drivers get compensated after an accident?” Before you can answer this question, you will need to determine who is liable for the damages you sustained. 

    An accomplished tort lawyer at Morgan and Morgan will gather evidence related to your claim. This will help you to accurately determine who is at fault for the harm you experienced.  

    Our legal team will manage every element of your case: 

    • Collecting relevant evidence
    • Consulting with experts and specialists, if needed
    • Speaking with witnesses to the accident
    • Determining relevant laws and statutes
    • Calculating the value of your personal injury claim
    • Negotiating with the relevant insurance company
    • Filing a lawsuit if negotiations break down 

    Through a tort lawsuit, you will be able to pursue compensation for all of the damages that you suffered. While workers’ compensation covers only a portion of your lost wages, you may be able to pursue payment for your total financial losses through a lawsuit. 

    To determine whether you have grounds for a valid legal claim, reach out to the nation’s largest personal injury firm: Morgan & Morgan. We have helped many injured workers recover payment through workers’ compensation claims and accident lawsuits.

  • What Types of Evidence Are Relevant in a Personal Injury Suit?

    The general rule of thumb is that more evidence is better. Over time, it becomes difficult to remember the details of an accident or injury. 

    Because of this, you should do your best to gather evidence in the immediate aftermath of the incident. These are some of the most powerful forms of evidence in injury cases: 

    • Photos and videos of the scene
    • Photos and videos of resulting injuries
    • Names and contact information for witnesses
    • Date, time, and location of the accident
    • Detailed notes about your experience
    • Medical records and doctors’ notes
    • Police accident reports

    With this information, a legal representative can build a strong case for you. The team at Morgan and Morgan will use the evidence in your case to corroborate your account of the events. This is necessary to hold negligent parties accountable and recover the money you deserve.

  • How Long Do I Have to File an Injury Claim?

    The legal time limit by which victims must begin pursuing a lawsuit for their injuries is called the “statute of limitations.” The statute of limitations is determined by state law.  

    Make sure to hire an attorney with a thorough understanding of your state’s statutes and laws surrounding personal injury claims. Fortunately, the firm of Morgan and Morgan has been representing victims across the country for more than three decades.
