Delivery Truck Accident Attorney

Step-vans and Vans | Driver Negligence

It can often seem like there are as many delivery trucks on the road as there are other vehicles. It seems that fewer parcels travel through the mail while the number of local and national delivery vehicles seems to proliferate. Unfortunately, with the increased focus on profitability and timeliness of delivery, drivers can often cut corners or take unnecessary risks to meet deadlines. If you or someone you love has been injured by a delivery truck driver, you want experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel to protect your interests.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we bring more than 31 years of experience to personal injury victims in Delaware, including people hurt in accidents involving delivery trucks. We take a direct approach with our clients, making certain you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case and have a realistic idea of what your case is worth, as well as your prospects for successfully recovering compensation. We will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed.

Our Delivery Truck Vehicle Accident Injury Practice

When you hire us to represent you for injuries suffered in a delivery truck accident, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of the case, looking to determine whether:

  • The delivery truck driver acted negligently — With the pressures that delivery truck drivers face to meet deadlines, many often fail to look both ways before turning or to look behind them when they have passed the address where the package goes. Others may use excessive speed or fail to obey traffic signs or signals.
  • The vehicle was properly maintained — For some delivery truck drivers, time spent maintaining a vehicle is time spent not making money. For that reason, the owner may wait until the vehicle breaks down to perform necessary maintenance.

We handle delivery truck accidents involving all types of injuries, including serious and catastrophic loss, such as brain or spinal cord injury, broken bones, paralysis, amputation or loss of limb, and serious burns. We also take wrongful death claims.

We will help you seek damages for all your losses, including lost wages and income, medical bills, loss of companionship or consortium, and physical pain and suffering.
