Throughout the United States, FedEx Freight operates more than 107,500 motorized vehicles. This giant fleet of vehicles is driving across America each and every day delivering products to your door.
With over 300,000 employees and massive trucking fleets, FedEx Corporation is one of America’s most trusted companies. Should they be trusted? Reports of safety violations and deadly accidents caused by FedEx employees and equipment continue to make the news. However, according to their website, “FedEx inspires its… team members to remain ‘absolutely, positively’ focused on safety, the highest ethical and professional standards, and the needs of their customers and communities.”1
What to Do After A FedEx Accident
If you’ve been injured in an accident with a FedEx truck, or you’ve lost a loved one in an accident with a FedEx truck, you may have legal rights to file a personal injury or wrongful death suit against FedEx. If you have suffered serious injuries in an accident, you can recover for your pain and suffering as well as for any lost wages, medical bills, and future economic losses. If you have lost a loved one in an accident, you might be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Commercial vehicles, like FedEx freight trucks and the delivery trucks you see in your neighborhood are required to carry large insurance policies. With these insurance policies come teams of attorneys and insurance adjusters experienced in minimizing your injury claims. Timing is everything. It is important that you start the lawsuit process as soon as possible after your accident and that you do not sign anything or give a recorded statement to anyone.
The first step to take in determining if you have a case against FedEx is to contact an attorney with a proven track record and experience in successfully handling commercial vehicle accidents and wrongful death cases. These cases can be very difficult, so it is important that you make sure the firm you choose has extensive knowledge about these types of cases and how to handle cases against large corporations like FedEx.
