Santa Ana California Truck Accident Attorneys

We Are Here To Help You With Your Delivery Truck Accident Problems.

Accidents involving delivery trucks – including United Parcel Service (UPS) trucks, FedEx trucks, and other delivery service vehicles – frequently result in catastrophic injury or death to innocent motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. These accidents may be caused by driver negligence, lack of training, negligent maintenance of a truck, and a number of other causes. At Hess & Nghiem, our Santa Ana California delivery truck accident attorneys have represented people throughout California who have needlessly suffered serious personal injury in delivery truck accidents. Our experienced attorneys are familiar with the complex liability issues of truck accidents involving large commercial trucks, service trucks, freight shipping trucks, and delivery vehicles, including UPS and FedEx trucks.

UPS Delivery Service

United Parcel Service (UPS) is the largest package delivery company in the world. In the United States, UPS is easily recognized for its signature brown delivery trucks and gold shield logo. UPS has had its headquarters in Sandy Springs, Georgia, since 1991. The classic brown UPS delivery trucks, also called package cars, are also an easily recognized symbol of the company. Unfortunately, these delivery trucks, along with UPS tractor-trailer trucks and other UPS vehicles, cause a number of deadly accidents every year in the United States.

FedEx Delivery Service

FedEx is an express shipping and logistics services company founded in 1998, with headquarters in Memphis, TN. FedEx has multiple operating units, including FedEx Express (the original overnight shipping service), FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight, FedEx Custom Critical, and other operating divisions. Just like UPS, FedEx is routinely involved in deadly accidents with its trucks, many of which are owned and operated by independent contractors.

UPS and FedEx Truck Accidents

Delivery truck accidents are common in part because FedEx and UPS employees are under extreme pressure to deliver packages as quickly as possible. Efforts to get the job done quickly can lead to negligent and careless actions and cause serious accidents. FedEx truck crashes and UPS truck accidents may be caused by:

  • Failure of a driver to engage the truck’s parking brake while delivering a package to a building, causing a truck to roll into traffic or pedestrians.
  • A driver backing up after passing an address instead of circling the block, causing a crash with a pedestrian, bicyclist, or automobile.
  • A driver attempting a sudden left turn in an attempt to save time (UPS uses a software program to eliminate left-hand turns in delivery routes).
  • A driver failing to yield while merging onto a highway.

FMCSA Regulations

Both UPS and FedEx are subject to the federal regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These federal laws establish mandatory requirements for safe operation of commercial trucks, including:

  • Mandatory driver recording for hours-of-service
  • Maintenance and repair requirements for trucks
  • Drug and alcohol prevention programs for drivers
  • Driver training requirements

At Hess & Nghiem, all large truck accident cases begin with an exhaustive investigation. Our attorneys consult with experts on all aspects of a truck crash, including driver abilities and skills, record logbooks, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, maintenance requirements, and proper loading and unloading practices. If you have been injured in a Santa Ana, Orange County, California delivery truck accident, you may have claims for compensation against numerous parties and their insurers.

    I was referred to Phil and Ed by a good friend after my two prior lawyers dropped the ball on my case. I was viciously assaulted at a bar. Phil and Ed took my case on and it was night and day. They stood up for me and kept in regular contact. I never had to guess what was going on with my case. They conducted a thorough investigation and collected crucial evidence that helped prove my case. Initially, the bar refused to take responsibility but eventually the bar relented after the job Phil and Ed did. Ultimately, the case resolved favorably for much more than I expected. Thanks so much again Phil an Ed!

    Not backing down, Phil and Ed pressed forward and never once compromised our position. After the insurance company kept increasing their offer and wanting us to negotiate, Phil and Ed refused to relent and accept anything less than what we initially asked. Basically, their response each time to the insurance company was pay our original demand or we are going to trial. It worked! Eventually, after bidding against themselves, the insurance company finally offered to pay the original amount we wanted. I couldn’t be more impressed with the way Phil and Ed handled my case. They really stood up for me and took on a case that was by no means a simple one. Thanks again fellas!

    I can’t say enough great things about Phil Nghiem. He was on my case from the minute I called him. He got things handled from day one immediately and made me feel supported and taken care of. His office staff was the same way, replied to every email immediately and addressed all of my concerns. I got into a car accident and called him, and I am SO GLAD I did. He got me the compensation I was entitled to and fought for me and my well being the whole way through. He took are of everything so that I just had to worry about getting my health back. He and his staff really care about YOU and do not treat you like another name in the book. They help you step by step and always keep you in the loop. I can’t thank him enough for helping me through this excruciating ordeal.

    I’d like to start off by saying that Phil is incredibly passionate about what he does, he’s very kind-hearted, and he genuinely cares for his clients. I was struck by a hit-and-run driver, who was fleeing from the police in a stolen vehicle with no insurance. Given the circumstances of my car accident, Phil was able to negotiate an incredible sum to be paid out by my insurance. It made my day when he was able to share the news. Most attorneys would have settled earlier in the case for significantly less. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and the end of my investigation was a success. Thank you again Phil, I am eternally grateful for everything that you’ve done for me.

    PS. Phil’s office is quite the drive for me, but he’s very accommodating and we managed to make things work with EASE. So don’t hesitate to contact him regardless of where you’re from because he’ll take care of you.

    I was involved in a rear end accident and was referred to Phil from my chiropractor. Honestly I was nervous to take on an attorney because I was already overwhelmed by everything involving the accident but Phil really put me at ease. He took the time to explain things to me in a way I could understand and wasn’t pushy at all for me to hire him. I’m really glad I chose Phil because I literally didn’t have to worry about anything after that meeting. He set me up with one of his associates named Bri and she was always so quick to respond whenever I had questions. On top of that they worked hard to reduce my other fees and got me a nice settlement too! I’m thankful for all the help they provided and will definitely use them again if I ever need it.

    I’m so glad I hired Phil to help me after my car crash. My car was totaled after a driver ran a red light and struck me. For days, I didn’t have a car to get to work and school. Finally, I decided to hire an attorney and eventually found Phil. He immediately got to work. My accident happened at an intersection where there was a restaurant. Phil personally went out to the restaurant and obtained video footage that captured the crash showing that I was not at-fault. I couldn’t believe that he actually did this. He then helped me get into a rental and get medical treatment. I am completely satisfied with Phil. He truly went above and beyond to get me through this difficult time in my life.
