How Often Are FedEx and UPS Trucks Involved in Accidents?
With the sharp rise in online shopping, it’s no surprise that FedEx and UPS deliver billions of packages across the nation every year. At last count, UPS had 134,000 vehicles in operation and more than 127,000 drivers. Between FedEx Ground and FedEx Express, Federal Express’s fleet of vehicles exceeded 136,000, and it employed more than 166,000 drivers.
Already congested roads and highways see a strain when this many delivery trucks share the road.
Needless to say, accidents involving FedEx and UPS trucks are fairly common.
In the 24 months leading up to May 24, 2022, FedEx Ground and FedEx Express vehicles were involved in 3,172 auto accidents.
In that same period, UPS vehicles were involved in 2,942 motor vehicle accidents.
That’s an average of 8.3 UPS and FedEx truck accidents in the United States every single day.
Who’s Liable For a FedEx or UPS Truck Accident in Los Angeles?
Anyone who contributes to an accident involving a commercial delivery truck can be liable for the consequences.
This might include:
- Negligent UPS truck drivers
- Negligent FedEx truck drivers
- Third-party motorists, including drivers of other cars, trucks, or motorcyclists
- Bicyclists or pedestrians
- Property owners
- Government agencies
- FedEx or UPS, or one of its subsidiaries
Does this mean you can file a lawsuit against FedEx or UPS if you’re hurt by one of its delivery drivers? Maybe. These companies have a responsibility to hire qualified drivers, inspect and maintain their fleets of vehicles, and supervise their employees. Since many courts have also held that UPS and FedEx drivers are employees, not independent contractors, these companies can also be vicariously liable for driver negligence.
However, insurance is your first source of compensation after a crash with a UPS or FedEx vehicle, and both companies have huge policies in place to cover their drivers and injured third parties. If your damages exceed what the company’s policy will pay, you may have the right to file a lawsuit directly against one of these multinational corporations.
Our attorneys will help you understand the best course of action for recovering compensation after your FedEx truck accident or UPS truck accident in Los Angeles.
