Representing Victims Injured In An Accident With A US Postal Service Truck

Filing a claim after a USPS accident involves a multistep process that can be more difficult and complex than the claims process following a regular motor vehicle accident or even a commercial FedEx or UPS accident. The Post Office is a government entity, so when you bring forward an auto accident claim against the USPS, you are bringing it against the United States. You are still entitled to compensation for your damages; however, getting the settlement or verdict you deserve is often complex, filled with red-tape, and requires representation by an attorney familiar with the process. The Doctor Lawyer Team represents victims in USPS truck accident cases throughout the United States.

With United States Postal Service Accidents, Time Is Critical

Unlike most other types of personal injury claims, injury claims against a government entity (such as the USPS) have very strict time limits. After you file a claim, the government will respond with a decision whether they admit liability and if so, with the amount they are willing to provide as compensation.

If the government’s decision is not satisfactory, you may thereafter file a lawsuit within six months. Unlike accidents involving private citizens or private companies which are filed in state courts – a lawsuit involving the USPS is filed in federal district court pursuant to the federal tort claims act. Again, it is highly advised that you seek an attorney to assist with this complicated process. Regardless of where you live, the Doctor Lawyer Team can represent you in filing a claim against the USPS and if appropriate in filing a lawsuit against the United States.

Pressure, Fatigue, And Distraction – Common Causes Of USPS Truck Accidents

Serving around 155 million addresses within the United States and its territories, the USPS fleet consists of more than 200,000 vehicles, including a variety of small and large trucks and vans, along with smaller vehicles. Every year, drivers cover millions of miles, making their deliveries as fast as possible. The pressures of the job can contribute to fatigue, intoxication, and distraction—and these, in turn, can lead to negligent driving practices which cause crashes.

The most common causes of USPS postal vehicle accidents include the following:

  • Slow speeds and irregular stops.Due to the nature of their work, mail delivery truck drivers often must drive at slow speeds and stop infrequently to drop off mail. Unfortunately, the unpredictability of their driving patterns can cause surrounding motorists to get confused, which is often why post office vehicle accidents occur.
  • Improperly loaded or secured cargo. It’s important for loaders and drivers to ensure that all letters and packages, as well as the truck’s doors, are secured, or else, loose cargo can fall out of the truck and causes chaos on the road.
  • Wrong-side driving. Surprisingly, wrong-side driving—whether it’s on the wrong side of the road or the truck itself—is not an uncommon practice, more so in rural areas than cities. Carriers who drive on the wrong side of the road can never predict when another vehicle may show up, and this can lead to devastating head-on collisions. And carriers who drive from the passenger seat may be more comfortable, but they sacrifice reaction time and control, which are necessary for safe operation.

Not all USPS accidents are caused by drivers, some can be attributed to acts of negligence that take place even before the vehicle is started. For instance, lack of proper inspection and maintenance can cause dangerously dysfunctional trucks to be out on the road, and these trucks can break down in disastrous ways, causing harm not only to the driver but also to motorists and pedestrians who are unlucky enough to be around at the time.
