Can I File a Suit Against FedEx?
You can receive maximum compensation for your injuries suffered from an accident involving a FedEx vehicle. However, it may be very difficult to file a suit against FedEx itself.
This is true for many reasons, not the least of which is that FedEx does everything it can to shield itself from liability. For example, so many FedEx drivers are classified as “independent contractors,” “third-party,” and the like. Even though they drive FedEx vehicles and carry FedEx cargo, they aren’t technically “FedEx Employees.”
As you may know, FedEx has faced lawsuits for this in the past. FedEx has multiple divisions which utilize contract drivers: FedEx Home Delivery and FedEx Ground (there are others). While these drivers are trained, they also have signed an agreement which makes them “Independent Service Providers.”
From this, it can be very unlikely that a suit can be brought against FedEx. What we can tell you is that Belal and the team here will conduct a thorough evaluation to find out who exactly is liable for your injury. Then, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure that we bring a suit against all of them.
That way, you can receive all of the compensation that you deserve.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive After a FedEx Accident?
Accidents involving FedEx drivers can have devastating consequences, leaving victims grappling with physical injuries, emotional trauma, and financial strain. If you find yourself in such a situation, it’s crucial to understand your rights and the compensation you might be entitled to. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the types of compensation available to you, the steps you should take immediately after a FedEx accident, and the importance of seeking legal representation to navigate this challenging process.
What Compensation is Available for FedEx Accidents?
In California, after being in an accident involving FedEx vehicles, you can recover economic as well as non-economic compensation.
Economic compensation encompasses essential expenses like medical bills, medications, rehabilitation costs, and related expenses incurred due to the accident.
Furthermore, if the accident renders you unable to work, you can seek compensation for lost wages both in the present and future.
Non-economic damages, on the other hand, address the intangible losses that are challenging to quantify objectively. These damages address your pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and even loss of consortium. These are designed to compensate you for the emotional and psychological toll the accident has taken on your life.
Belal, during a free case evaluation, can let you know exactly what compensation you can receive. Then, he will formulate a strategic plan to help you obtain the compensation you deserve, guiding you through every step of the legal process.
Immediate Steps to Take After a FedEx Accident

- Prioritize Safety: Move to a safe location away from traffic and other hazards. Your safety and the safety of others involved should be the top priority.
- Assess Injuries: Check yourself and others for injuries. Even if you feel fine, it’s advisable to seek medical attention promptly. Injuries, especially internal ones, might not be immediately apparent due to shock and other factors.
- Call Emergency Services: Dial 911 to report the accident. Law enforcement will create an official report, which can be invaluable when building your case.
- Gather Information: Exchange contact and insurance details with the FedEx driver and any witnesses. Be polite but avoid admitting fault or discussing the accident extensively.
- Document the Scene: Take photographs and videos of the accident scene, focusing especially on damage to vehicles and the surrounding environment.
