Below, our FedEx truck accident lawyers will teach you everything you need to know about FedEx truck accident claims. So let’s talk about FedEx delivery trucks!
Fedex, being the number two largest courier delivery service company in the United States, with millions of miles driven, has seen its fair share of delivery truck accidents. FedEx Ground runs a giant fleet of commercial trucks, vans, small cars, and aircraft to transport parcels throughout the country and world.
When a FedEx delivery truck accident occurs, serious injuries and wrongful death when they do, the resulting injuries sustained can be devastating for the delivery truck driver as well as you or an injured family member.
Untrustworthy FedEx Delivery Truck Accident Safety Record?
Like DHL, FedEx purports to have an impeccable safety record. And like DHL, FedEx has been accused of parrying liability, claiming that independent contractors are not its employees.
Hence, its safety record doesn’t take major accidents caused by people they hire into account for its shareholders and the U.S. government.
How FedEx Avoids Paying for Commercial Truck Accidents
They also hire the same insurance companies, insurance defense experts, and defense attorneys to evade responsibility to accident victims when they deliver packages and cause an accident. Their goal is maximizing profits while lowering or evading payments to cover your serious injury or wrongful death compensation payments.
They also fight hard to treat many FedEx delivery truck drivers as nonemployees to avoid tendering worker’s compensation claims or paying a worker’s compensation insurance company premiums for this coverage.
If you or a loved one suffered an injury in a FedEx accident, you must consult with an experienced FedEx truck accident lawyer. Even if you are a FedEx truck driver, these are complex cases. And like all major commercial entities, FedEx will take steps to hamper your claims and avoid paying the financial compensation you deserve.
Only a highly trained legal professional, such as the FedEx truck accident lawyers at Ehline Law Firm, can provide the competent, caring assistance you need to win full and fair compensation. We will fight to recover compensation for your economic damages, like lost wages, lost income, medical expenses, and property damages. We will also fight hard to get FedEx drivers and those hit by FedEx drivers pain and suffering damages in man truck accident cases.
Common Causes of FedEx-Car Accidents
- Violating traffic laws (Truck drivers speeding, blowing a red light, etc.)
- A negligent vehicle manufacturer (bad brakes, tires, etc.)
- A distracted driver (delivery drivers often look at a GPS, text their boss, shop online, etc.)
- Driver error (Driving in a negligent manner or recklessly.)
- Drowsiness from too many hours driving without a break
- Driving tractor-trailers under the influence of alcohol or marijuana
Your individual case will be different, with different types of injuries. There are many factors to determine after an accident with a FedEx truck in Los Angeles, CA. If you want FedEx held accountable, you have to prove negligence first. In crashes like this, it’s absolutely insane not to hire a personal injury lawyer to get your claim on the right track.
We represent victims like you against any delivery company in the U.S., not just FedEx vehicles. We will handle the entire legal process against FedEx, its partner companies, and other drivers from start to finish.
Ways FedEx Evades Responsibility for Its Delivery Truck Accidents
Normally, when you are rear-ended or get in a passenger car fender bender, the insurance adjuster already knows who is at fault from reading the police report. Liability is often admitted at the crash scene by the at-fault party who also caused the auto accident. So they will almost always pay the claim without having to litigate the liability issues of who caused what.
No true with FedEx. Their insurance policies are in the millions of dollars, and FedEx delivery truck accidents often result in severe injuries and deaths. After all, these are huge, lumbering vehicles, so any collision with a smaller vehicle almost always means major property damages and bodily injuries to passengers. FedEx is a huge Fortune 500 Company. Since the jury knows this, they may assume FedEx can pay more.
This is why these multinational corporations like FedEx almost always try and classify their drivers and mom-and-pop contractors. Their goal is to convince the jury there is little to no money to pay unless you bankrupt the independent contractor. Get it?
How Else Does FedEx Try and Avoid Liability for a Truck Accident?
When FedEx disputes liability, they can be sneaky and expert at confusing judges and juries in a truck accident case. As a plaintiff’s attorney, you need to be prepared for whatever they try and throw at you to conceal the true nature of the truck driver’s status and driving record. Our legal team begins as soon as you hire, typically right after your free consultation.
Basic Evidence Gathering?
We will take steps to retrieve black box data, service records, tailgate safety meetings, driver training, inspection, and maintenance records. We will go the extra mile to uncover the evidence needed to hold FedEx legally liable for causing the wreck.
Experience Makes the Difference in Winning
A general practitioner will not be able to navigate the labyrinth of defenses and legal issues that will pop up. However, FedEx truck accident lawyers have handled serious injuries like this for years.
We have the motivation, expertise, years of experience, and wherewithal to win any FedEx accident case. Our top truck accident attorney team has recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for satisfied clients.
- We can win your FedEx truck accident case too.
What Happens When You Sue FedEx?
After your medical evaluation and treatment are over, and the liable company refuses to pay up, your next step is to litigate. FedEx accident victims in smaller vehicles often find themselves devastated when they discover FedEx won’t assume responsibility for causing a truck accident. But they simply behave the way the entire commercial trucking industrial complex behaves. Their goal is to purchase a seven-figure policy to cover up to that amount on their delivery vehicles.
Then, they claim it’s the driver’s fault if you want more money. Obviously, a wrongful death case is worth more than a party seven figures in most traffic accidents. This is why it’s so important for you to speak to a FedEx truck accident lawyer before accepting a lowball settlement offer from their insurance company.
An expert attorney knows how to burrow underneath their defenses and come up winning. We will handle insurance settlement negotiations, including legal documents and submitting paperwork on your behalf. We will make sure the government claims deadline is met if there are government defendants and make sure the statute of limitations to file and commence litigation is met of we can’t settle swiftly for your losses. We will hold the company liable.
Common Catastrophic Injury Cases We Handle:
Don’t forget we can also help the FedEx driver accident victim if a third-party accident happened while they were on duty that was not their fault. We also handle cases against other delivery companies too. Sometimes liability insurance isn’t enough to cover everything.
