There are many possible accidents that could potentially involve FedEx trucks, including but not limited to the following:
Regardless of the specific type of accident, the accident is likely to be severe anytime that a truck is involved. This is because trucks are much heavier than regular vehicles and require a much longer distance to stop. Unfortunately, this often contributes to impacts occurring at high speeds, which often leads to more severe injuries.
Although every truck accident is different, potential injuries could include the following:
Unfortunately, because truck accidents often lead to severe injuries, they are often fatal.

Who is liable for the harm resulting from a FedEx truck accident? The answer to this question depends on the details surrounding the incident. In general, liability is based on negligence. When it comes to auto accidents, all drivers on the road have a duty of care towards all others on the road. This means that they must drive safely, follow all traffic rules, etc. When drivers act recklessly, ignore traffic laws/signal, or drive under the influence, for example, then they are breaching their duty of care and are putting other parties on the road at risk of harm. Whenever an incident occurs resulting in harm or damages, then the driver that acted recklessly and breached his or her duty of care will be liable.
What does this mean? If the actions of a FedEx driver caused the accident, then the driver would be liable; since the driver is a FedEx employee, the company would be liable (because companies are liable for the actions of their employees). In some cases, it is actually the negligence of the company that directly leads to the incident; some examples of this include the following: pushing deadlines; ineffective safety training; failing to ensure that drivers are licensed; failing to supervise drivers; etc.
What if another driver caused the accident? If another driver caused the accident, then the driver would be liable for the harm suffered.
Once you can establish liability, then you can sue the liable party for the harm that you suffered with the help of a truck accident attorney. For more information about establishing liability, do not hesitate to contact the exerts at our law firm immediately.
Do you have the right to sue? Can you file a FedEx truck accident lawsuit?

For more information about your right to sue after your FedEx truck accident, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our law firm immediately.
If your FedEx truck accident lawsuit is successful, you could be eligible to recover monetary compensation. What could you receive? Compensation could include some of the following:
The type and amount of compensation that you could be eligible to receive will be strictly based on the details surrounding your claim. How much could you recover? Typically, truck accident claims are often high value. The value of your claim will depend on your specific situation. However, it is important to note that FedEx carries a $5 million-dollar insurance policy. For more information about FedEx’s insurance and what you could be eligible to receive, contact us today.
If you were injured in a FedEx truck accident, there are a number of things that you should do to prepare to pursue a truck accident claim. Consider some of the recommendations listed below:
Even if you have the right to file a FedEx truck accident lawsuit, you could lose your right to sue if you wait too long to take any action. All injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations, which determine the time that claimants have to file their claims. If claimants do not file on time, they could lose their right to sue. In the state of Texas, injury claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations; therefore, claimants will only have two years to sue. Under some circumstances, certain exceptions could apply which could toll the applicable deadline. For more information about the deadline that applies to your truck accident claim, contact us today.
What if you are a FedEx employee who was injured in a truck accident? If you were injured while working as a delivery driver for FedEx, you could be eligible to file a workers compensation claim and recover benefits, including medical pay, partial pay, temporary disability, permanent disability, etc. The process of filing a workers’ compensation application should be simple; however, if your employer either unjustly denies your workers comp claim or doesn’t carry enough insurance coverage, then a lawyer can help you file a workers’ comp lawsuit to ensure that you are fairly compensated.
