Delivery Vehicle Accidents

Truck Crash Attorneys Assisting Victims on Cape Cod

The Cape Cod truck accident lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III represent people who have been struck by careless commercial drivers in pursuing compensation. Collisions involving a delivery vehicle often raise complicated legal questions about employer liability. Our firm offers over 146 years of combined legal experience, not to mention a track record of getting strong results for the victims and families whom we represent. Our lawyers are dedicated to helping our clients recuperate from an accident with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that we are fighting to maximize the compensation to which they are entitled.

Holding Drivers and Employers Liable for Delivery Vehicle Accidents

Commercial drivers generally owe others on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. This means avoiding dangerous behavior like speeding or drinking and driving. It also means obeying traffic signals and making sure that the driver is properly rested before getting on the road. A driver who fails to live up to this responsibility is likely to be found negligent and responsible for any collisions and injuries that result.

When a delivery vehicle driver causes an accident, both the driver and his or her employer may be held liable. Respondeat superior is a legal principle under which courts may hold an employer responsible for accidents caused by a worker who was acting carelessly in the course of his or her job. To prove respondeat superior liability, a person injured in a car crash must show that the employee worked for the employer, that the employee was acting in the scope of the employment relationship at the time of the crash, that the employee was negligent in causing the crash, and that the victim incurred damages.

Companies often fight these cases by arguing that the worker who caused the crash was not acting within the scope of the job at the time of the crash. Generally, a driver who causes an accident while traveling from one place to another as instructed by the employer is considered to be acting within the scope of the job. When a driver wanders off the expected path – to run a personal errand, for instance – the question becomes a little more difficult. Liability issues also often come up when a delivery driver is involved in an accident while traveling to or from work at the beginning or end of a shift.
