FedEx Truck Accident Lawyer
The second largest courier delivery services company in the United States, FedEx operates a huge fleet of trucks, commercial vehicles, and even airplanes to move their packages around the nation and the rest of the globe. Given the amount of vehicles FedEx deploys on a daily basis—millions of miles are covered by their trucks every year—accidents involving FedEx vehicles are bound to happen every once in a while. And when they do, the resulting damages can be devastating.
FedEx are reputed to maintain an impressive safety record, but the company is also known for deflecting responsibility after their drivers have injured someone in an accident. They employ insurance experts and attorneys whose priority is to preserve the company’s bottom line, which means minimizing their liability and maximizing yours to lower your injury compensation payout.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a FedEx accident, it is highly advised that you consult with an experienced truck accident attorney. Claims against major commercial entities like FedEx almost always involve complex legal considerations and processes. Only with legal professional assistance can you give yourself the best chance at winning full and fair compensation for your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
A FedEx Truck Crash Case Involves High Stakes
The typical fender bender usually doesn’t result in significant liability disputes, mainly because the potential damages involved are relatively low, so there’s not too much at stake for all parties (though there may be exceptions).
Cases against FedEx, on the other hand, can result in massive settlements or verdicts, mainly due to two factors: 1) Truck collisions often result in more serious damages than regular motor vehicle accidents due to the massive size and weight of trucks, and 2) FedEx is a big corporation with huge limits of liability insurance. Juries understand that the multinational delivery company can afford significant payouts to accident victims.
What Else Is Different About a Claim Against FedEx?
When a liability dispute arises in a FedEx truck accident case, the plaintiff’s lawyer must conduct a rigorous investigation to unearth all the information needed to prove that FedEx was at fault for the collision. This information doesn’t just include police reports, witness statements, and medical reports, but also data straight from the involved FedEx vehicle’s onboard systems as well as inspection, maintenance and hours-of-service records.
It may be difficult for the average car accident lawyer to navigate this maze of information, but our FedEx accident attorneys have years of experience in handling these cases and the knowledge required to win. We’ve recovered tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients.
What to Expect When You Sue FedEx
After a FedEx truck accident, victims are often shocked to learn that the company will not just accept liability. Like other commercial trucking companies, FedEx takes out seven-figure policies on each of their vehicles. To avoid paying out large sums on claims, they don’t readily admit fault, but expect victims to prove their claim—down to the last cent. They do this knowing that most people will get intimidated and confused by the complex legal processes that follow and submit to the initial settlement offer, which is almost always lower than they deserve.
The best way to get FedEx and their insurance company to take your claim seriously is to seek assistance from a qualified commercial truck accident lawyer. The right attorney will handle all of your communications with the insurance company, expedite the filing process so the statute of limitations for your claim is met, and fight hard in negotiations and, if necessary, litigation to secure you full and fair compensation for your losses.
