Who is Liable?
Who is liable if you are involved in a car accident with a FedEx vehicle? Depending on the circumstances, anyone could be liable. All drivers have a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent injury to other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. When drivers breach this duty of care, they can be found negligent. Negligence consists of four elements: duty, breach, cause, and harm. If an accident is caused by a drivers breach of duty—say they are not following the rules of the road while driving—they can be found liable for any accidents and injuries sustained. FedEx directly employs their drivers; therefore, they are in charge of providing drivers with the necessary before allowing them to drive. Because of this, FedEx can be found liable for their driver’s negligence. Contact Normandie Law Firm for further information on liability.

The severity of your injuries will vary depending on the specific characteristics of the accident you experienced.
