FedEx Truck Accidents in New Jersey

According to the most recently available data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there are over 400,000 accidents involving commercial trucks each year. These accidents claim more than 3,800 lives per year. 

In particular, New Jersey sees a large number of truck accidents due to the state’s central location along the Eastern Seaboard and the several major highways leading throughout the state. In fact, according to the state’s Department of Transportation, in 2018, there were 31 fatal New Jersey truck accidents, resulting in 34 deaths. 

According to the FMCSA, FedEx truck drivers were involved in 2,237 crashes in the most recent 24-month period. Of these accidents:

• 1,429 accidents requiring at least one vehicle be towed from the roadway,
• 745 accidents resulting in at least one injury, and
• 63 accidents causing the death of one or more people

Because FedEx is one of the largest trucking companies in the country, the FMCSA keeps track of the company’s safety record. Over a two-year period ending in September 2019, the company was cited 267 times for unsafe driving violations. These include speeding, unsafe lane changes, failure to yield and distracted driving. The FMCSA also identified 525 vehicle maintenance violations, such as failing to safely secure loads, damaged tires, impaired view and missing safety equipment. There were also 53 FedEx drivers cited for driver fitness violations. The following are among the company’s driver-fitness violations: not having the proper license to operate a vehicle, not having a medical certificate, and operating a commercial vehicle without the appropriate license or endorsements.

Dealing With Insurance Companies After a New Jersey Truck Accident

Being involved in a serious New Jersey truck accident is an extremely stressful experience for many reasons. Truck accident victims must deal with their physical and emotional injuries, missed work, as well as the limitations they now face as a result of the accident. And while financial recovery can help ease many of these burdens, those accident victims who want to pursue a claim against FedEx, or any other large trucking company, will need to navigate the complex personal injury system. 

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of bringing a personal injury case after a truck accident is dealing with the insurance companies. Truck drivers and their employers have dedicated teams of insurance defense lawyers at their disposal. The sole purpose of these legal teams is to reduce or eliminate the insurance company’s potential liability. Of course, this is done at the expense of the accident victim. 

Insurance companies will often try to approach accident victims with a small settlement offer in a time of desperation, hoping the accident victim will settle the claim for pennies on the dollar. However, studies have shown that accident victims who reject an insurance company’s initial offer and retain an experienced personal injury attorney end up securing a more significant compensation award. Thus, rather than deal with the insurance companies alone, accident victims are encouraged to work with a knowledgeable New Jersey personal injury attorney who is familiar with the process and can effectively help them pursue a claim to obtain compensation for their injuries.
