Understanding How Houston Delivery Van Accidents Work
With the rising popularity of ordering online, delivery vans have become ubiquitous in and around Houston and other parts of the state. Amazon, delivery companies, such as UPS and FedEx, and even smaller local companies have their own fleet of vans for deliveries. They hire and train their drivers and task them with making deliveries in their assigned area.
This means many of these drivers cover 100 miles a day or more to get all their packages delivered, some seven days a week. Despite being professional drivers, they may make careless mistakes behind the wheel. This may occur because they are rushed, sidetracked while searching for an address, fatigued, distracted, or any number of other reasons.
What sets these cases apart from other car accident claims, though, is that their employer may be liable for their negligence.
When an employee is working “within the course and scope” of their job, their employer is likely vicariously liable for any damages they cause. Because a delivery van driver is making deliveries while on the road, they are “acting in furtherance of the employer’s business” when the accident occurs.
When an employer is vicariously liable, this changes some things about how we pursue a case. This includes:
- Filing your claim based on the employer’s corporate liability insurance policy
- Going toe-to-toe with the company’s legal team to settle the case
- Taking action to protect and preserve any evidence held by the company
