FedEx Bus Crash Victims Families Being Offered Money to Avoid a Lawsuit
Our office has been retained as counsel by family members of those who were harmed in the FedEx bus accident. It has come to our understanding that many unrepresented parties are unaware of the policy limits of the FedEx truck responsible for the tragic crash that took the lives of some extraordinary people. Additionally, in order to settle these claims for far less than their value, the insurance company for FedEx is working aggressively to tie up and settle cases, prior to representation being obtained by injured parties and families. What is not being told to these families is that they can pursue a claim independent or beyond the value of the policy limits.
FedEx $5 Million Dollar Insurance Policy from Protective Insurance Co.
Protective Insurance is the company that is responsible for providing insurance coverage to FedEx. In this particular case they have provided a $5,000,000 single policy or aggregate policy. What this means is that the total amount of liability available is $5 million dollars. Therefore, this amount will need to be divided between all injured parties. As a result the actual amount will be limited. However, those who have been injured can pursue an independent case against Federal Express. Since Federal Express has the necessary assets to justify or warrant an independent lawsuit. However, this is not information that will be readily provided by Protective Insurance. In fact insurance companies will routinely attempt to settle the case in order to avoid potential litigation.
