Of course, no one has studied this to be sure but it definitely seems like this could be the case based on recent Sacramento FedEx truck accidents. Just in the last six months, at least three Fed-ex trucks have been involved in truc accidents in and around Sacramento.

Last month, a Fed-ex driver was accused of causing a truck accident that injured a California Highway Patrol Officer while under the influence of narcotics.  The Fed-ex driver caused a collision on I-80 in Vallejo in October 2015 in another Fed-ex semi-truck.

This past January, a Fed-ex semi-truck created a major traffic jam when it crashed on the southbound side of Highway 99. In December 2015, a Fed-ex driver crashed into another vehicle on I-5 in Sacramento killing an Elk Grove man. Witnesses claim the driver of the Fed-ex truck was traveling too fast for conditions.

Sacramento Car Crashes Involving Semi-Trucks

Fed-ex trucks are not the only large commercial vehicles that cause truck accidents in the Sacramento area. Other trucking companies have their vehicles involved in car crashes in Sacramento, throughout California, and from one end of this country to the other. The government estimates that over 70 percent of the fatalities and injuries in semi-truck accidents are passengers in other vehicles.

Reasons for crashes involving large trucks include:

  • Driver error (i.e. speeding, reckless driving, impaired driving, etc.)
  • Improperly maintained or defective equipment
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Fatigued or drowsy driving
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Weather conditions

Regardless of the reason for the FedEx truck accident one thing seems to remain the same — semi-truck accidents result in catastrophic injuries to drivers and passengers in other vehicles.

Damages in FedEx Truck Accident Cases

Damages in truck accident cases tend to be substantial due to the catastrophic injuries and deaths that result from collisions with this extremely large, heavy vehicles. A passenger vehicle is easily crumpled and completely destroyed when it goes up against a semi-truck. Therefore, insurance companies for the trucking industry often have specialized investigators that arrive at the scene of the crash or shortly thereafter to being an extensive crash scene investigation. The company is hoping to find evidence that it can use to mitigate its responsibility and losses.

It is important to contact an experienced Sacramento FedEx truck accident attorney as soon as possible to protect your right to receive full compensation for your injuries. You need a team of professionals on your side working just as hard, if not harder, to protect your rights against large insurance companies. Many accident victims face millions of dollars in damages, especially if the injuries cause permanent disabilities that require life-long medical and/or personal care.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
