UPS truck accident
The United Parcel Service (UPS) ships billions of packages around the world and, for the most part, their drivers and other staff work to do so quite safely. But whenever there are that many delivery vehicles on the road, accidents can happen, and if you end up in a UPS truck accident, you may need the assistance of a UPS truck crash lawyer.
The UPS serves approximately 11.1 million delivery recipients per day, according to its company website. In 2022, the company’s average daily volume was 24.3 million packages and documents. The United Parcel Service serves more than 220 countries and territories and has a delivery fleet of approximately 125,000 package cars, vans, tractors, and motorcycles. That includes more than 15,000 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles, according to a fact sheet from the company.
A large part of the company’s operation is done by the men and women who pick up and drop off packages in those familiar brown UPS trucks. Of course, these drivers are just as capable of making mistakes as other motorists and sometimes cause accidents that leave victims with massive medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In that case, you may need the assistance of a UPS truck accident lawyer.

Do you have more information on UPS?
Headquartered in Atlanta, the primary business of the UPS is the delivery of packages and documents worldwide. Its operations are divided among segments: U.S. Domestic Package operations, International Package operations, and Supply Chain & Freight Operations.
UPS has more than 500,000 employees globally, including drivers, package handlers, clerks, and more. In the United States, these workers are represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, “America’s largest, most diverse union,” according to its website. The UPS Teamsters had one nationwide strike, which occurred in 1997.
The iconic brown color that UPS uses on its vehicles and uniforms, known as Pullman Brown, was chosen by the company thanks to inspiration from the Pullman Company and its sleeping compartment railroad cars, according to The Hill. They “were symbols of “style and elegance and first-class travel” in the early 1900s.
What are some causes of UPS Truck Collisions?
Unfortunately, there are a number of UPS delivery trucks, tractor-trailer trucks, and other vehicles that are responsible for fatal accidents each and every year.
Delivery truck accidents are not uncommon in Arizona. UPS drivers are under a considerable amount of pressure to deliver packages to recipients as quickly as possible, and this can lead to negligent and careless actions that end up causing serious auto collisions.
UPS drivers can cause accidents by:
- Failing to yield when merging back into traffic after delivering a package
- Backing up their truck after passing their desired address
- Making quick left turns or sudden stops
- Not yielding when they are merging back into traffic
An accident with a UPS truck can be particularly damaging because they are much larger and heavier than an average motor vehicle. The injuries you sustain can be far more serious than they would be in a typical Phoenix car wreck, and the damages you receive from such an accident could be different, too.
