Holiday Shopping May Lead to Trucking Accidents

by Staff Blogger | December 5th, 2016

If you’ve been anywhere near a television or online in the last couple weeks, you’ve seen Black Friday or Cyber Monday commercials or ads somewhere along the way. Retailers doubled down on their marketing budgets this year, and it appears to have paid off, as they well exceeded the $3 billion sales estimate for Cyber Monday alone. That’s millions of packages leaving warehouses and distribution centers around the country all headed to different locations.

How do they get delivered? Under the care of one of just a handful of postal services (UPS, USPS, and FedEx). That means more drivers, more trucks, and more congestion on our roads. It also means more pressure put on drivers to hit delivery dates. At Ponce Law, we know what can happen when you put a fatigued or stressed truck driver on the road and ask him/her to push themselves even further.

We hope this holiday season ends with no trucking accidents in the Nashville area. That would be a gift for the whole city. However, we’re ready to step in on behalf of victims if accidents do occur.
