Ohio Delivery Truck Accidents

If you drive for a living, whether full-time for Amazon or UPS or doing gig jobs for Uber Eats or Shipt, you know there is always a risk of an accident. Here are a few of the most common questions we see at Leeseberg Tuttle:

  1. What should I do if I’m involved in a traffic accident while driving for a delivery service?

Start by making sure that you and others are safe. After that, contact medical services and/or report the accident to the police. You likely need to report it to your employer, as well. Take pictures, exchange information, talk to witnesses and document the scene.

  1. Am I eligible for compensation if I get injured while working for a delivery company?

Every case is unique, but employees who get injured while on the clock are typically covered by workers’ comp benefits.

  1. How can a personal injury lawyer help me if I’m an independent contractor and I’m injured on the job?

As proven personal injury lawyers, we can help you understand your insurance policy, consider a third-party claim, negotiate a settlement and fight for the compensation you deserve.

  1. What kind of damages can I recover if I’m injured while delivering goods?

Damages often start with medical expenses and hospital bills. But they could also include lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering and the like. An experienced attorney will help explore your options and evaluate the case.

  1. Can I still file a claim if I’m at fault for the accident?

Yes, but only if you were not 51% or more at fault. If you have less than half of the liability, you can seek compensation under Ohio’s comparative negligence laws.
