Liability Concerns in FedEx Accidents

There are several potential reasons why FedEx drivers may be responsible for causing collisions with other drivers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, or bicyclists. Long hours behind the wheel can lead to fatigue, or drivers who are trying to meet deadlines might violate traffic laws or engage in other dangerous behaviors. Distracted driving may also be a factor, as FedEx drivers may need to use GPS navigation to get directions to their destinations. These factors can be even more dangerous when they are combined, and they can significantly increase the likelihood that delivery drivers will be involved in accidents with others.

In many cases, tight schedules and unrealistic expectations for FedEx delivery drivers can be significant factors leading to dangerous car accidents. Drivers are often expected to make many deliveries within a short period of time, all while following specific routes set by FedEx and delivering packages to specific destinations at specific times. Following these schedules can be difficult even under ideal conditions. However, issues such as heavy traffic, inclement weather, or mechanical problems can cause a driver to get behind schedule, and they may then attempt to take shortcuts or drive unsafely in order to catch up. These practices, when combined with the stress of following tight schedules and the fatigue of working long shifts, can make accidents more likely.

Like other employers, FedEx may be held responsible for the actions of its employees, and when FedEx delivery drivers cause accidents, victims may be able to pursue compensation from the company. However, there are some situations where delivery drivers may be classified as independent contractors rather than employees. Because these drivers do not work directly for FedEx, the company may claim that it is not liable for their actions. To overcome these issues and ensure that they can be fully compensated for their injuries, victims will need to work with an attorney who understands the laws that play a role in these cases and is prepared to stand up to large corporations like FedEx.
