Delivery Driver Accident Claims
If you have had an accident while working as a delivery driver that was caused by somebody else’s negligence, whether you use a motorbike, bicycle, car, van or lorry, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Types of Delivery Driver Accidents
Delivery drivers are often at risk of being involved in a variety of road accidents, with the most common being caused by a collision with another vehicle or as a result of defective road surfaces, such as potholes. If you suffer an accident due to a problem with your vehicle, and it was issued by your employer, you are entitled to make a claim for inadequate maintenance and upkeep.
Accidents involving the handling of items can also be another cause of accidents experienced by delivery drivers. Employers are responsible for making sure delivery drivers are trained and equipped to handle manual handling. They are responsible for the following:
- Providing the correct safety equipment
- Ensuring enough workers are assigned to handle heavy objects
- Completing thorough risk assessments
- Training employees on the correct manual handling techniques
If an employer fails to provide any of the above and you have an accident as a result, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
