For many Woodland Hills residents, the ease of online shopping has saved them time, money, and the stress of navigating crowded parking lots (read about parking lot accidents here) and busy retail stores. As online shopping becomes more of the norm, the number of commercial delivery trucks involved in auto accidents also increases. If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident caused by a delivery truck, speak with an experienced Woodland Hills accident lawyer about your legal rights.
Take UPS, for example. The shipping giant now boasts nearly 100,000 delivery trucks that operate 7 days a week. The 60,000 or so employed drivers log almost 900 million miles a year behind the wheel. And UPS is not the only one. Many retailers have ramped up their delivery services, meaning more trucks on the road and more trucking accidents.
