Common Causes of FedEx Truck Accidents

According to data from the FMCSA, the most common causes of FedEx collisions include:

  • Driver fatigue or falling asleep at the wheel – Truck drivers often operate their vehicles for long hours, leading to driver fatigue. Much like alcohol, exhaustion impairs judgment and reduces a driver’s ability to react to hazards on the road. 
  • Poor Training and Inexperience – Inadequate driver training and high turnover rates mean truck drivers are often minimally qualified. 
  • Unsafe loading or unbalanced cargo – Top heavy or shifting loads raise a truck’s rollover risk. Unsecured loads also can spill onto the road.
  • Pressing schedules – FedEx pressures drivers to meet quick delivery deadlines. This sometimes encourages drivers to speed, tailgate, multitask, and commit other acts of negligence on the road. 
  • Poor truck maintenance – Brake failure, worn tires, broken lights, and other mechanical defects can cause FedEx truck crashes. 

In many FedEx truck accident cases, multiple factors converge to cause a devastating collision. Our experienced West Virginia FedEx truck accident law firm will thoroughly investigate your accident to hold every liable party fully responsible.

Understanding Fault in FedEx Truck Accidents

Truck drivers are often liable for accidents, especially when they’re independent contractors working for FedEx. That said, though negligent drivers are often at fault, they are not the only potentially liable party. In fact, truck accident lawsuits are often characterized by their high number of potential at-fault parties. Other liable parties may include: 

  • Trucking Company – The company employing the truck driver may be liable for inadequate training, overloaded delivery schedules, failure to maintain their vehicles properly, and more. 
  • Maintenance Crews – If a third-party company is responsible for maintaining the truck and its components, liability may fall on them if mechanical failure or lack of maintenance causes the accident. 
  • Manufacturers – If a defect in the truck or its parts contributes to the accident, the manufacturer may be held liable for product liability. 
  • Shippers and Cargo Loaders – Improper loading or unsecured cargo can cause accidents, making the entities responsible for loading and securing the cargo potentially liable. 

At Warner Law Offices, we know how insurance companies and corporations operate when sued. FedEx is a large corporation with hefty insurance policies, a team of attorneys, and plenty of money to defend against accident victims’ claims for compensation. 

Depending on the truck in question, FedEx truck insurance provides at least $1,000,000 in coverage in the event of an accident, but the company’s insurers will make you prove every penny of your damages before compensating you. FedEx will rarely, if ever, accept liability for truck accidents, even if they are entirely at fault.  

However, denying liability isn’t FedEx’s only defense tactic. They also exploit the filing deadline set by the statute of limitations. The West Virginia statute of limitations gives individuals injured in accidents two years from the injury date to initiate a claim for personal injury. 

Hiring a qualified FedEx truck accident lawyer is the best way to make sure you file before the deadline passes and that you leave no money on the table. Do not wait to take legal action.

What to Do After a FedEx Truck Accident in Charleston, WV

If you or someone you love was injured in an accident with a FedEx truck in Charleston or anywhere in West Virginia, you may be able to file a lawsuit against FedEx. Taking quick action is critical to protect your rights to compensation. Take the following steps after a crash:

  • Collect all available evidence – Photograph the scene, vehicles, license plates, cargo, and your injuries. This evidence helps prove liability and damages.
  • Get contact information from witnesses – Witness accounts help prove fault. Gather their contact information at the scene if possible. 
  • Report the crash to the police – Notify the appropriate authorities so they can prepare an accident report and provide emergency assistance if needed.
  • Seek immediate medical care – Even if you don’t think you were hurt, seek medical help. Some injuries take days or weeks to manifest symptoms, and getting prompt treatment will also ensure your injuries are documented as evidence for your case.
  • Keep track of documents – Keep an organized record of anything related to your accident, including medical bills and expenses, vehicle repair or replacement costs, and any other expense resulting directly from the collision. 
  • Consult a qualified FedEx truck accident attorney as soon as possible – Our FedEx truck accident lawyers will launch an independent investigation of the incident to protect your rights.
