What Causes FedEx Truck Accidents?

Several factors can cause FedEx truck accidents, and all too often, negligence is involved. When it is, it can take the form of:

  • FedEx driver negligence: These truck drivers may speed, make sudden stops, forget to check their blind spots, and make other risky maneuvers that cause crashes. FedEx truck drivers can also cause wrecks when they’re impaired, distracted, and/or fatigued.
  • Other motorist negligence: Other passenger vehicle drivers and truckers can also act recklessly behind the wheel and cause wrecks.
  • Negligence on behalf of FedEx: This type of negligence can involve hiring unsafe drivers, failing to train drivers, and failing to maintain FedEx trucks. It can also include any policies or practices that may contribute to putting dangerous drivers and/or vehicles on the roads.
  • Other forms of negligence: Unsafe roads, poorly set up highway work zones, and more can also play a role in causing FedEx truck wrecks. Various other parties can be liable when other forms of negligence like (but not limited to) these examples are involved in causing a crash.

 

How Do I Determine Fault for a FedEx Truck Accident?

Examining the evidence for a FedEx truck accident is the key to determining who is at fault for that wreck. This evidence can include (and may not be limited to):

  • Accident scene photos
  • The vehicle damage and crash debris
  • The police report
  • Witness statements
  • FedEx truck maintenance records
  • A FedEx driver’s training records and accident history

What Should I Do After a FedEx Truck Accident?

Whenever a FedEx truck accident happens, you should:

  1. Call police and report the accident ASAP.
  2. Get medical care at the scene and/or after.
  3. Take pictures of the crash scene, the wreckage, and the injuries.
  4. Record name(s) and contact information for all of the involved parties, including other drivers, witnesses, and police officers at the scene.
  5. Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as you can after leaving the scene.
  6. Keep all pictures, medical bills, correspondence from insurance companies, and other items you have related to the accident.
  7. Talk to our Houston FedEx accident lawyers to find out more about your legal options for seeking compensation.

In addition to taking these steps, here are some essential things you should NOT do after a FedEx truck crash:

  1. Guess about the facts of the accident.
  2. Admit blame or apologize for the crash.
  3. Put off reporting the accident or getting medical care.
  4. Provide a recorded statement to insurance companies if you are prepared to do so.
  5. Accept a denial of your claim or any settlement offer without first speaking to our experienced Houston lawyers.

Following these tips after a FedEx truck crash can go a long way to protecting your rights. It can also help you avoid common mistakes that may complicate or weaken a future FedEx truck accident case.

What Kind of Compensation Can Come from a FedEx Truck Accident Lawsuit?

Settlements and jury awards for FedEx truck accident cases are meant to compensate victims for the losses and suffering they’ve endured as a result of the wreck. As such, the financial recoveries for these cases can include damages for (but not limited to): 

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Damaged or destroyed property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial costs, in the event of fatal FedEx accidents
  • Loss of companionship, in the event of deadly wrecks 

While this compensation may never undo the damage caused by FedEx crashes, the financial recoveries from these cases can help victims cover medical bills and focus on healing.
