Common Causes of a FedEx Truck Accident

FedEx accidents often involved multiple parties, making determining liability challenging. While driver error results in many FexEx accidents, FedEx may also bear some responsibility. Common driver errors that may be the cause of FedEx accidents include:

  • Failing to set the truck’s parking brakes when making a delivery
  • Failing to yield when merging back into traffic after making a delivery
  • Backing up the FedEx truck after passing the desired delivery address
  • Failing to obey traffic signals and traffic laws 
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to perform routine safety checks on the FedEx truck
  • Failing to have the truck promptly repaired 

In addition, FedEx drivers who spend long hours driving are more prone to drowsiness and may take stimulants to stay alert, impairing their faculties. FedEx drivers are also more likely than other drivers to eat, drink, make calls on their smartphones while driving, and use GPS navigation, increasing the risk of distracted driving.

When FedEx Is Liable

FedEx must provide maximum pubic safety and use appropriate care when hiring, training, and supervising drivers. Our attorneys will determine whether the company was negligent for:

  • Failing to conduct an adequate background check of the driver 
  • Failing to adequately train the driver on maneuvering the FedEx truck 
  • Failing to regularly inspect the truck and make needed repairs

A third party may also be liable, such as another motorist or a warehouse operator who failed to oversee the truck being loaded. 

Common FedEx Truck Accident Injuries

FedEx trucks come in various sizes and weights from commercial-type vans to 18 wheelers and occupants of smaller vehicles will likely bear the brunt of the crash. Many FedEx accidents victims may suffer injuries such as: 

  • Back or neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn injuries 
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Loss of limb
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death
