Atlanta is a major metropolitan city with delivery trucks operating at all hours of the day and night. Due to the number of deliveries being made and the population of the city, it is not uncommon for delivery truck accidents to occur. Unfortunately, the size of delivery trucks and the amount of cargo they carry can lead to catastrophic accidents involving serious injuries and property damage. The Krause Law Firm has garnered successful case results for people injured in delivery truck accidents. We use our litigation skills and legal knowledge to fight aggressively for our clients’ rights.
Negligence and Liability Issues in Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery truck drivers are under immense pressure to get the products to the designated location within a certain timeframe.

Common negligence and liability issues that arise in delivery truck accident cases are:
- Failure to inspect and maintain the truck on a regular basis
- Truck driver was not properly trained
- Exceeding the mandatory number of hours a driver can operate the truck without rest
- Reckless driving of the truck
- Truck driver was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
