If you suffered serious injury or lost a loved one in an accident involving a FedEx delivery truck, FedEx 18-wheeler or another FedEx vehicle, call New Jersey truck accident attorney Jeffrey S. Hark at Hark & Hark to receive a free confidential case evaluation.

FedEx has been one of the main express delivery businesses in the U.S. for more than a decade. People rely on FedEx for getting their packages delivered to businesses and personal residences quickly and reliably. To serve its wide client base, FedEx employs over 280,000 employees and an enormous fleet of vehicles, including FedEx delivery trucks, FedEx Freight Trucks (also known as 18-Wheeler trucks or semi-trucks), and FedEx planes. FedEx also has many subsidiaries, under names such as FedEx, FedEx Office, FedEx Express, FedEx ground freight, and others.

Due to the high number of FedEx trucks on the road in the U.S., FedEx trucks are involved in many motor vehicle accidents every year. In the express delivery business, the accidents are often caused by the negligence of the drivers, many of whom may be in a hurry to meet deadlines and adhere to their schedules. When in a hurry, express delivery drivers may take additional risks, including driving without adequate sleep for several days in a row.

FedEx Truck Accidents

Like other commercial delivery trucks, FedEx trucks are involved in crashes.

Most of FedEx accidents happen due to:

  • Mechanical failure and defective equipment
  • Failure to set emergency parking brake before exiting the vehicle, causing roll back into cars, and others
  • Failure to yield when turning or merging
  • Inclement weather
  • Unstable cargo/improper loading procedures
  • Debris, lack of visibility, or poor road conditions
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver intoxication
  • Driver inexperience
  • Inadequate training
  • Driver failure to obey traffic laws
  • Vehicle equipment failure, including brake, tire, or transmission failure
