What Happens When a FedEx Driver Hits Your Car?
Since your accident, you might have been wondering how you’ll get compensated. You should be able to get compensated from FedEx so long as their employee did, in fact, cause the accident.
If another party contributed to the accident in some way, that party may share liability for compensating you. Alternatively, if the FedEx employee didn’t cause the accident, another party may be liable for compensating you.
Our firm’s personal injury lawyers can identify the liable party or parties for you and then hold them to account on your behalf.

How Do I Claim Damages From FedEx?
You can recover your damages with an insurance claim against FedEx’s insurance provider or with a personal injury lawsuit against FedEx itself. A claim may be more appropriate if your damages are relatively minor, whereas a lawsuit may be more appropriate if your damages are major.
Regardless of whether you file a claim or suit, you may have trouble recovering your due damages. If you file a claim, you’ll be up against FedEx’s major insurance provider, and if you file a suit, you’ll be up against the company’s many attorneys.
A lawyer from our firm can determine whether to file a claim or a suit and then your lawyer will take on FedEx’s insurer or attorneys for you.

What Damages Can I Claim From FedEx?
Depending on whether you and your lawyer choose to file a claim or a suit, you may be able to claim only some of your damages. Typically, a claimant can’t recover most of their non-economic damages (like pain and suffering) through an insurance claim. Also, typically, FedEx’s insurer doesn’t cover most non-economic damages in an insurance claim.
However, your lawyer may be able to negotiate with the insurer for certain damages. Alternatively, your lawyer could sue FedEx for all of your damages.
Your lawyer may be able to recover such damages as:
- Pain and suffering
- Disability and disfigurement
- Mental and emotional anguish or trauma
- Loss of consortium
- Loss in your ability to enjoy certain activities
- Loss in your ability to earn an income
- Lost employment income and benefits
- Medical and related expenses
- Vehicle and other property expenses
- Wrongful death damages (such as loss of spousal love and lost family income) if a loved one lost their life in the accident

How Will My Lawyer Prove My Damages?
To prove your damages in your case, your lawyer will gather and show your medical bills and other relevant documentation. Your lawyer can even get a professional evaluation of your damages from an expert, like a medical professional.
They treated us like no other people would. Whenever we needed something they were there for us. I put my trust in them and I don’t regret it.Client
How Will My Lawyer Prove Liability for My Damages?
To accomplish this, your lawyer will gather and show other evidence, such as black box data indicating the FedEx driver was negligent. However, this evidence won’t be enough to fully prove liability.
Your lawyer will also have to show each of the elements of negligence in your case, which are:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
How Will My Marksville FedEx Truck Accident Lawyer Resolve My Case?
This may be the most troublesome task your lawyer will undertake. Your lawyer will take on FedEx’s insurance provider and/or attorneys.
First, your lawyer will negotiate with the insurer to reach a fair settlement. In negotiations, your lawyer will make your case and argue against the opposing case. If necessary, your lawyer will also make a demand on the insurer and threaten to sue FedEx. At this point or another point, the attorneys may become involved.
If a fair settlement can’t be reached, your lawyer will sue FedEx. The process of suing is preparing a lawsuit, filing it through the proper channel, taking the suit to court, and negotiating with a judge for a fair verdict. Your lawyer can also hire a special expert, like a truck accident reconstructionist, to corroborate your case in the courtroom.
