Delivery drivers are on a timetable. They are motivated to get from point A to point B as efficiently as possible. Sometimes that means speeding, rolling stops and other unsafe driving. Employers encourage this behavior by pressuring drivers to meet deadlines and make more deliveries.
The law firm of Ward & Glass, L.L.P., in Norman, Oklahoma, helps clients cope with the aftermath of truck accidents. If you were injured by a negligent truck driver, you can depend on us to aggressively pursue compensation for your losses and ongoing needs. We handle cases in Oklahoma City and throughout the state.
Holding Truck Drivers And Employers Accountable
The first element of an injury claim is liability — proving the truck driver was at fault or that the truck owner failed in a duty to the safety of the motoring public. Our skilled trial lawyers know how to investigate and document these cases to meet the standard of proof. We sometimes retain accident reconstruction specialists who can examine the evidence and testify to negligence. The cause may be speeding, tailgating, failure to yield, illegal turns, backing up or texting while driving. The employer may be responsible for poor maintenance, unreasonable schedules or negligent hiring of an unqualified driver.
This approach enables us to bring action against national chains like Walmart, major shipping companies such as UPS and FedEx, or any local company whose truck was involved in a crash. Our attorneys can explore your claim involving any type of commercial vehicle:
- Package delivery trucks
- Freight trucks
- Garbage trucks
- Utility company trucks
- Oil and gas tankers
- Long haul 18-wheelers
- Construction and landscaper trucks
- Taxis and shuttles
- Food delivery cars
