Arizona UPS Car Accident Attorneys
UPS drivers are among the most highly regulated employees in the delivery business. The computer they carry by hand tracks every move. Any delay or idle truck time is noted and evaluated. They may have as many as 200 stops to make per day, and their drivers are constantly under scrutiny. These drivers are under intense pressure to keep moving fast and to shave time off deliveries.
If you’ve had a car accident with a UPS truck, the first thing you need to know is that you are up against a highly organized company. They call upon corporate defense teams to reduce the costs associated with insurance claims. If UPS tracks every minute of each worker, how do you think they will handle your claim?

A UPS truck colliding with a car and causing an accident may be the result of one or more of the following:
- An operational environment leads to drivers to cut corners or make bad decisions.
- Negligent driving behavior when heavy traffic or weather conditions slows deliveries.
- Truck failure. Some accidents can be due to faulty mechanical issues such as brakes, tires or other safety system.
- Driver history. Had the driver been cited for prior moving violations? Has the driver been reprimanded by his company?
- UPS vehicles are typically unheated and have no air conditioning. In extreme weather, this may become a factor in poor driver judgment.
- UPS trucks are large and obstruct view. When they are parked in a manner that forces someone to drive around a blind corner and an accident is precipitated, the UPS driver may be liable.
- UPS driver schedule can lead to driver fatigue.
- The UPS driver may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Aggressive driving habits.
UPS trucks are everywhere, and drivers must be capable of maneuvering safely through all kinds of traffic situations. As time passes, particularly when driving a similar route day after day, a driver can lose focus and become less aware of the surroundings -- and of other drivers who are sharing the roadways.
