FedEx Truck Accident Attorneys

FedEx Trucking Accident Lawyers Serving Victims Nationwide from Our Texas Offices in San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Austin, El Paso, and Houston

Between 2015 and 2017, there were 2,792 crashes that involved FedEx trucks in the United States. Nearly half of those crashes resulted in injuries, and 80 people were killed in crashes involving FedEx trucks.

At Thomas J. Henry, we believe adverse drivers and negligent companies should be held accountable for their actions, no matter how much money they have behind them. Our trucking accident lawyers have the financial resources and experience necessary to develop your FedEx truck accident case properly.

Who Can Be Held Accountable for My FedEx Trucking Accident?

The FedEx Corporation is comprised of six separate companies. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) oversees two of these companies, FedEx Freight and FedEx Ground. Under Texas law, transportation companies are responsible for the negligent actions of their employees. So, if your FedEx truck accident was caused by a negligent driver, your lawsuit will seek damages from both the driver as well as the company.

However, driver negligence is not the only thing FedEx can be held responsible for. FedEx must also ensure:

  • Their drivers have obtained and maintained proper licensing to operate a commercial vehicle
  • Their drivers have not committed any disqualifying criminal offenses that would compromise their CDL
  • Their drivers understand they are prohibited from using handheld devices while driving
  • Their drivers are in compliance with hours of service regulations at all times
  • Their vehicles are properly maintained and inspected regularly

Failure to adhere to these regulations or any others coded in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) can result in a trucking company being held responsible for your injuries.

What Are Common Causes of FedEx Truck Accidents?

From 2015 to 2017, the FedEx received a total of 11,670 citations for safety violations. Among those violations were practices like:

  • Distracted driving
    • Commercial vehicle regulations ban drivers from using mobile devices while driving. Doing so is considered a serious traffic violation and could lead to a CDL suspension.
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Improper turning or lane changing
  • Failure to maintain vehicles
