What to Do After a Collision with a Delivery Vehicle in New York

Our New York personal injury attorneys at Omni Injury and Accident Law, P.C. understand the difficulties our clients face after a crash with a passenger vehicle turns their lives upside down.

When our clients are injured in a collision with a significantly larger delivery vehicle, such as a FedEx, Amazon, or UPS truck, obtaining fair compensation can become even more complex.

The size difference between the truck and the car or SUV it hits often results in much more severe injuries for our clients. Additionally, pursuing the compensation you deserve after the crash can be a far more complicated process, as the delivery company’s insurers and legal team will likely dispute every aspect of your financial recovery.

At Omni Injury and Accident Law, P.C., our personal injury legal team fights for the dedicated, driven results our clients deserve. It’s always free to speak with one of our attorneys, and we have over 15 years of experience representing victims of delivery vehicle accidents. We’re here and ready to help. Call us today at (646) 736-4184.

Collision with a Delivery Vehicle in New York

Here are some tips to help strengthen your case:

Call 911 IMMEDIATELY After a Collision with a Delivery Vehicle

Calling 911 right away after an accident is critical for your wellbeing. If you’ve been hurt, you may require first responders to assess your injuries and take you to the nearest hospital.

Calling 911 will also dispatch police to document how the crash happened, interview witnesses, and generate a police report. If you are able to remain at the scene, calmly explain the facts of the accident to the officers. Review the police report before they depart to immediately correct any omissions or inaccuracies. Ask when the report will be filed and how you can get a copy. Write down the accident report number so you can easily retrieve the report later or provide it to your personal injury lawyer.

Gather All Information at the Crash Scene

As with any accident, collect all relevant information at the scene, including whether the delivery driver was on the job when the collision occurred.

This may involve recording:

  • The delivery driver’s license, employee ID, registration, and insurance details
  • Photos and video of all vehicles in the crash, including any corporate logos on the truck
  • The date, time, weather, and location of the accident
  • Any other key facts, such as if the other driver was speeding or ran a red light

Be sure to get contact information for any witnesses, as their statements can help strengthen your position with the insurer later on.

Seek Medical Attention Right Away

If you were able to wait for the police, get medical care as soon as they release the scene. Whether you head straight to the ER or see your own doctor, you need to understand the full extent of your injuries immediately. This allows you to get the treatment you require now and map out your care plan moving forward.

Let Our Skilled New York Car Accident lawyers Handle Your Case from Here

If you’re unsure whether you need a car accident attorney for your case, keep in mind that your next steps involve contacting your insurer, the delivery driver’s company, and their insurance provider or legal counsel.

The upcoming phone calls will likely be difficult. UPS, FedEx, and Amazon all use independent contractors for deliveries, so they will immediately exploit this loophole, when possible, to claim they are NOT liable for your injuries.

They may also argue they weren’t at fault because the employee was technically off-duty during the crash, meaning it fell outside the driver’s normal work responsibilities.

Even when it’s obvious their delivery driver caused your accident, you can expect, at minimum, to get the runaround. In the worst case, you may feel intimidated by their representatives doing everything possible to deny your claim. We can help.
