What Can Happen?

FedEx has over 150,00 delivery vehicles and it is vitally important that the company regularly inspect and maintain their fleet. When fully loaded, these vehicles can weigh up to 20,000 pounds, depending on the size of the vehicle. While we typically see the large box truck delivery vehicles, the company also owns and operates thousands of eighteen-wheelers.

One of the main causes of large truck crashes is due to vehicle failure. Consider the following important systems:

  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Wheels/tires
  • Suspension
  • Connections (between trailer and truck)
  • Lighting

If anything goes wrong with any of those systems while the truck is moving at a high rate of speed, a crash will likely be the result. If it is discovered that FedEx did not properly maintain a vehicle involved in a crash, they could be held liable for damages and injuries.

We also know that driver error can contribute to large truck crashes. For long-distance delivery drivers, they must abide by all state and federal laws regarding capacity as well as how many hours they can drive at a time. Under no circumstances should a FedEx driver operate while impaired by drugs or alcohol or while distracted by phones or other devices.

Negligent or careless drivers should be held accountable if their actions cause injuries in a crash.

Large truck accidents often cause severe injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain damage/head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries with possible paralysis
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Will your insurance cover all of the medical costs associated with these injuries?
