Experienced South Carolina Accident Lawyers Help Protect FedEx Drivers After On-the-Job Accidents

Federal Express Corporation, popularly called “FedEx,” handles about 16.5 million packages daily, with over 210,000 vehicles in its fleet. FedEx employs over 850,000 people; 18 percent of its workforce has a commercial driver’s license (CDL), while thousands more may drive smaller vehicles for the company. 

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), FedEx employs over 42,000 drivers to operate its vehicles. While most FedEx drivers know their routes well, they may be involved in a crash with another passenger car during their shift. When others on the road act negligently or recklessly, even the most careful FedEx driver may be helpless to avoid injuries. 

If you or someone you love has been injured while driving for FedEx, talk to an experienced South Carolina FedEx work accident lawyer today. The team at the Steinberg Law Firm is here to help. 

Types of Accident Risks for FedEx Drivers

FedEx drivers use a variety of vehicles to carry out their daily delivery tasks. These include tractor-trailers, straight trucks, and vans. FedEx drivers face the same risks on the road as other drivers, including:

FMCSA data shows that FedEx drivers are committed to safety. The company received no “unsafe driving” penalty in any FMCSA safety enforcement case between 2018 and 2023. In inspections of over 500 drivers’ logs, the FMCSA found no evidence of hours of service violations. Similarly, the FMCSA records no drug or alcohol-related issues among FedEx drivers from 2018 to 2023. 

FedEx drivers know that safety on the roads is a shared commitment. Even drivers who do their part may be injured by another person or party who fails to use reasonable care to prevent a crash. When crash injuries occur, a driver may be left wondering how to hold the responsible parties accountable. 

Workers’ Compensation After a South Carolina FedEx Crash

Workers’ compensation protects South Carolina employees who are injured on the job. For a FedEx driver, a car accident while delivering packages may be an on-the-job injury. 

If you’re injured while driving your FedEx route:

  • Tell your supervisor immediately. Tell your supervisor as soon as you can about the injuries. Your supervisor may file a claim with the state Workers’ Compensation Commission.
  • File your own claim. An injured worker must file a workers’ compensation claim within two years of the accident. You can find forms to file your claim on the South Carolina workers’ compensation website. 
  • Collect and save evidence and paperwork. Keep copies of all your medical bills, information from the workers’ compensation commission, and all other paperwork related to your accident or job. 

Not sure where to start? Talk to an experienced South Carolina FedEx accident attorney. Your lawyer can help you start the workers’ compensation process or seek any other forms of compensation that may apply. 

Who is at Fault When a FedEx Truck Crashes?

After a crash, a driver may be left baffled. The driver knows they took their usual steps to maintain safety. What went wrong? 

A FedEx crash can cause serious harm that is not the fault of a driver. For example:

  • Another driver, bicyclist, or pedestrian may act negligently or recklessly, causing a crash.
  • The vehicle may have a hidden defect in one of its parts that causes that part to fail, resulting in a crash.
  • Neglected vehicle maintenance could cause steering, brakes, or other critical systems to fail, causing a crash to occur. 
  • Authorities responsible for maintaining traffic signals, roadways, or bridges may neglect their jobs, creating conditions for a crash. 

Determining who is at fault for a FedEx crash can be tough 一 but it’s also essential for obtaining full and fair compensation for your injuries. Some injury accidents can be both a workers’ compensation case AND a personal injury case. Having an experienced law firm that can handle both types of cases is critical in this situation.
