Testimonials From Our Clients

We are proud of testimonials praising our client-centric approach, hard work, and tenacity in fighting for fair compensation. 

UPS Vehicle Accident Claims Process

UPS carries liability insurance to cover damages in case of accidents. After evaluating your cases and calculating your damages, your UPS accident lawyer at Cordisco & Saile will send UPS a demand letter laying out your case for compensation. The company’s insurance carrier may then begin settlement negotiations.

UPS insurance covers up to $1 million in liability. If the company denies your claim or offers less than you deserve, our attorneys will attempt to negotiate a settlement. If UPS and its insurer do not make a fair offer to cover all your damages, we will file a suit and fight for you in court.

Establishing Liability in a UPS Truck Accident Case

To succeed in a UPS truck accident claim, you and your attorney must prove negligence by establishing the following four elements:

  • Duty: The defendant owed you a duty to avoid harming you.
  • Breach: The defendant breached that duty.
  • Causation: The breach of duty caused your injuries.
  • Damages: You suffered damages from your injuries. 

In an accident with a UPS truck, you typically must establish that the driver breached the duty of care and caused your damages. The company may be liable under a theory of vicarious liability. Pennsylvania courts have ruled that employers are responsible for the actions of their employees while working. For instance, if a UPS driver delivering packages rear-ends you at a red light, the company is likely liable for your damages.

UPS may also have been negligent with its own actions or inactions, such as deficient hiring practices, inadequate training, and poor fleet maintenance. Our UPS truck accident attorneys in Philadelphia will also determine if UPS policies contributed to your accident. The difficulty delivery employees face in meeting UPS’s demands may lead drivers to take unnecessary risks on the road, causing accidents.

“If you’re involved in a trucking accident, you should notify a lawyer immediately. It's important that we start our investigation almost from the beginning because the insurance company or the trucking company sends their own investigators and team to the accident scene to try to gather evidence and reduce their liability.”

What if I’m Partly To Blame for the Accident?

You can still collect damages if you were partly to blame for your accident with a UPS truck. Pennsylvania law follows a comparative negligence standard in personal injury lawsuits. You can collect damages if you are less than 51 percent responsible for your injuries. If you are 50 percent or less at fault, you can recover compensation, but your damages will be reduced in proportion to your share of the blame. 

You can expect that UPS or its insurance carrier will try to assign as much blame to you as possible. Our UPS truck accident lawyers have significant experience dealing with insurance companies, and we know the tactics they use to justify denying claims or paying as little as possible. We will vigorously fight any attempts to blame you for your accident and build a solid case to pursue the full damages you deserve.

Recoverable Damages After an Accident

You can recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages stemming from a UPS truck accident. Economic damages compensate you for your current and future financial losses, and non-economic damages address your emotional harm. Damages you can pursue include the following:

  • Medical expenses and future treatment costs
  • Rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and future earning potential
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

In rare cases, a judge will allow you to seek punitive damages. These are reserved for the most egregious actions when the plaintiff acted willfully, maliciously, or with a wanton disregard for your safety. 

Factors such as insurance coverage limits and the severity of your injuries determine your potential compensation. Our truck accident lawyers have a solid history of calculating damages and achieving positive case results for our clients, including the following:

  • $10 million for a local first responder struck by a truck
  • $2.9 million for a client in a crash with a corporate box truck
  • $2.47 million for a client rear-ended by an armored car

Common UPS Truck Accident Injuries

UPS truck accidents can result in severe injuries due to the size and weight of the vehicles compared to most others on the road. Common injuries that result from crashes with UPS and other delivery trucks include the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Whiplash
  • Head, neck, and back injuries
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Psychological trauma

We have seen these types of injuries before and understand the physical, emotional, and financial impact they can have on you and your family. Our accomplished and tenacious team of attorneys knows you only get one shot at bringing your claim, so we work tirelessly to do it right the first time.

“What sets us apart from other lawyers is the way we present the injury. We know the injuries. We know the effects of the injuries, and we will fight for the best outcome for you and your case.”

How Long Do I Have to File a UPS Truck Accident Claim?

Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations requires you to file your UPS accident injury claim within two years of the accident. If you miss this deadline, you will likely lose your chance at compensation. Our skilled attorneys have decades of combined experience handling truck accident claims. We will ensure you meet all deadlines and, if necessary, file suit before the statute of limitations expires.
