Dallas Delivery Vehicle Accident Lawyers
Experienced Dallas Delivery Vehicle Accident Attorneys Fighting for Injury Victims
Our Glen Larson Law delivery vehicle accident lawyers in Dallas have watched the steady increase of Amazon, FedEx, UPS, and other retail vehicles on our highways, city streets, and neighborhoods and are disturbed by the negligence and lack of experience these drivers have in driving these large trucks and vans.
The explosion in the number of delivery vehicles in Texas was initially spurred by nationwide increases in ecommerce and shipping requirements from retailers more than a decade ago.
More recently, in 2020 during the COVID pandemic, online sales grew nearly 45% and they are keeping that pace as our Texas residents become increasingly reliant and accustomed to buying things online and having them delivered to their homes and offices.
The supply and demand circle has increased the number of delivery drivers on our roadways, which is currently at an all-time high.
As companies continue to place profits over safety, these large vehicles are travelling in our neighborhoods practically 24/7 and are frequently operated by employees or independent drivers with little to no experience.
Our Dallas delivery vehicle attorneys also know these drivers’ job performance evaluations are based on the number of deliveries completed, so they drive fast and hazardously to make more stops to meet increasing quotas for third-party contractors.
We believe placing thousands of drivers on our local roadways with practically no oversight is leaving our communities vulnerable to collisions caused by negligent hiring, training, and management practices by companies like Amazon, UPS, and FedEx.
Large corporations must be held liable for their negligence when people are injured in collisions with delivery vehicles, and we are committed to providing legal protection for our Texas communities when they have been hurt or lost a loved one to reckless negligence.

Is the Driver or Their Employer Liable for Delivery Vehicle Accidents in Texas?
Like most commercial vehicle accidents, there may be multiple parties, including the driver, that can be held accountable for a delivery vehicle accident with injuries or fatalities.
The delivery company, including Amazon, UPS, FedEx, or another large retailer, can be held responsible for the actions of its employees.
Failing to properly screen or train delivery drivers before placing them behind the wheel of an over 5,000-pound cargo van is a form of negligence.
Failing to repair and replace faulty parts on a large delivery vehicle is a form of negligence.
When faulty brakes, transmissions, tires, or other components supplied by the manufacturing of a delivery vehicle causes a crash, the vehicle’s manufacturer may be held liable for the collision.
Our skilled delivery vehicle accident attorneys in Dallas will review the complete circumstances of your case to hold all potentially liable parties accountable for your full financial and physical recovery.
