Delivery Driver Accidents
If you’ve been injured as a delivery driver, you could be able to claim compensation as a result. If you were a driver on the road who was injured by a delivery driver in a road traffic accident, you could also be able to claim compensation against a courier or mail delivery service.
The type of accidents that you could be involved in as a delivery driver will range across a large amount of road traffic accidents. These accidents could include:
- Colliding with a cyclist
- Colliding with another vehicle
- Mechanical faults with your vehicle (which would likely lead to the claim being against your employer’s insurance)
- Being hit by a lorry
- Problems due to faults in the road, such as a pothole (this would likely lead to your claim being against the local council)
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident while working, you could be able to claim compensation as a result. The amount of compensation that you can claim will depend upon the specific details of your case and injuries.
If you are a warehouse worker for a courier or mail service, there is also a chance that you could be involved in an accident. You could also be employed by another company other than the courier or mail service, which is contracted by them. Either way, if you are involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you will be able to claim compensation as a result.

Claims Against DHL Amount Of Compensation
The amount of compensation that you can claim will depend upon the specific details of your case. This amount of compensation is calculated by looking at two distinct categories: general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed.
Compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work.
