FedEx Liability
Who is liable if you were involved in an accident with a FedEx vehicle? The answer to that question depends largely on who caused the accident. If the FedEx driver was driving recklessly and caused the accident, it is likely that he or she is found liable for the accident. All drivers have a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent injuries to other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. When a driver does not follow the rules of the road or is distracted while behind the wheel, he or she is negligent. Why is the driver negligent? Whenever a driver breaches a duty to exercise reasonable care, and the breach causes an accident which, in turn, causes an injury, the driver is negligent. FedEx drivers, specifically, are hired directly by the company. Therefore, FedEx is responsible for training all drivers and ensuring that they are not a hazard behind the wheel of their company vehicles. Because of this responsibility, the company is liable for the FedEx driver’s negligence. Therefore, if you were a victim of an accident involving a FedEx vehicle, you can sue Fedex for your injuries.

Types of Injuries Sustained
If you suffered a collision with a FedEx truck, you likely sustained injuries. The type and severity of the injuries sustained will depend on the type of accident. The injuries related to car accidents, although ranging in severity, are generally within the same boundaries. The injuries you might experience after a car accident with a FedEx vehicle include the following:

  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries
  • Shoulder and hip injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Strains and sprains
  • Lacerations, scrapes, and bruises

As you can see, there are many injuries that you can suffer if you experience a car accident with a FedEx vehicle. The severity of each type of injury can also differ. Head injuries, commonly known as concussions, can be mild and require little to no treatment. If these injuries go completely untreated, head injuries can become traumatic brain injuries and cause permanent brain damage. Shoulder and hip injuries usually require surgical intervention; after surgery and physical therapy, a victim should be able to return to his or her daily activities. If left untreated or if improperly treated, these injuries can cause lifelong pain. Fractures, strains, and sprains—although they are usually not severe injuries—can also cause lifelong pain if not treated. The more serious injuries include back, neck, and spinal cord injuries. These injuries usually include invasive surgical procedures that offer little success rates. Surgical procedures for these injuries often focus on alleviating pain rather than reversing the injury.

Whether your injury is mild or severe, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. You might not notice any injuries immediately after the accident, as accident injuries can present themselves many days later. However, a medical evaluation can identify injuries that might not be apparent to you.

Past FedEx Verdicts and Settlements
If you are interested in filing a lawsuit against FedEx after a collision with one of their vehicles, you have likely wondered about the value of your case. The decision to file a lawsuit against FedEx for your injuries might depend on past verdicts and settlements. Below is a list of past FedEx verdicts and settlements:

  • $5.4 million—a FedEx driver fell asleep behind the wheel, leading to a collision with another trailer. This lead to a nearly 50-year-old victim being ejected from the vehicle and losing his life.
  • $4,000—a FedEx vehicle collided with a vehicle in which a minor was traveling. The minor suffered bilateral back pain.
  • $125,000—a FedEx vehicle cut-off the victim, causing a collision and the victim’s vehicle to run off the road. The accident left the victim with injuries to his neck lower back, and hips. Treatment for the victim’s injuries included many months of specialized chiropractic visits and epidural injections.

As you can see, the amount of compensation you receive for your injuries will vary. Factors that affect the amount of compensation a plaintiff is eligible to receive include the severity of the injuries, the permanency of the injuries, loss of income because of the injuries, and pain and suffering.
