Common Causes of FedEx Accidents

From slippery roads to malfunctioning vehicles, FedEx accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Here are some common causes of delivery truck accidents: 

  • Distracted driving: FedEx drivers may resort to multitasking, such as using mobile devices or navigation systems while driving, to complete their routes or accommodate tight schedules. Such distractions can lead to accidents.
  • Driving at excessive speeds: Due to strict delivery schedules, FedEx drivers may exceed the speed limit, increasing the risk of accidents in residential areas or heavy traffic.
  • Inadequate training: If FedEx fails to provide adequate training for its drivers or fails to verify their driving skills and experience prior to operating their vehicles, this may result in inexperienced drivers on the road, increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Improper vehicle maintenance: FedEx trucks require regular maintenance to ensure safe operation. Negligence in vehicle maintenance can lead to mechanical failures, resulting in accidents.
  • Fatigued driving: FedEx drivers often work long hours, increasing the risk of driver fatigue. Drowsy drivers can cause accidents when they nod off at the wheel or have a delayed response to others on the road, resulting in accidents.
  • Improper loading: Overloading or inadequately secured cargo can cause imbalance, making the truck harder to control and potentially leading to accidents.

Who Is Liable in a FedEx Accident?

Depending on the unique circumstances of the accident, various parties may be liable for damages in a FedEx accident. Consulting with an experienced attorney is crucial to ensure all responsible parties are identified and maximize available damages for medical bills, treatment costs, lost earnings, and more. 

In a FedEx truck accident, some common examples of liable parties include: 

  • The FedEx driver: If the accident was caused due to the driver's negligence, such as distracted driving or excessive speeding, the driver can be held responsible for the accident.
  • FedEx company: The company may be liable if it is proven that they failed to provide proper training to their drivers, maintain their vehicles, or enforce appropriate work hours to prevent driver fatigue.
  • Manufacturing companies: If a malfunction or defect in the FedEx vehicle or one of its parts caused the accident, the manufacturer of the delivery truck or part may be liable.
  • Maintenance companies: If FedEx hires outside companies for vehicle maintenance, the manufacturing company may be liable for damages. 
  • Cargo loading companies: If the accident was caused by improper loading or overloading of the FedEx truck, the loading company may be held responsible for the accident.
