About FedEx Corporation
FedEx Corporation is a multinational courier delivery company servicing
more than 220 countries and territories worldwide. On an average business
day, the company, based in Memphis, Tennessee, delivers more than 16.5
million packages around the globe. FedEx is the second-largest courier
company in the U.S., trailing only UPS.
Like other courier companies, FedEx places great importance on speed and
efficiency. Often under intense pressure to make scheduled deliveries
on time, FedEx truck drivers can find themselves in a rush to deliver
all the packages on their route. Unfortunately, the need for speed and
efficiency can come at the expense of safety, potentially causing car
crashes, SUV crashes, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents.

- FedEx Express
- FedEx Ground

Three of the above companies are responsible for shipping packages: FedEx

roughly 210,000 delivery vehicles, including vans, box trucks, and tractor-trailers.

Our Experience Litigating FedEx Accident Claims
Many law firms market themselves as truck accident attorneys, but few have
the experience and proven track record to take on a major transportation
company like FedEx. Our firm has obtained justice on behalf of clients
in multiple cases against FedEx. In one example, our truck accident lawyers
at Wisner Baum successfully resolved a wrongful death and several truck
injury cases arising from a April 10, 2014, accident in Orland, California,
between a FedEx truck and a tour bus.
In that case, a FedEx tractor-trailer driver veered out of the southbound
lanes of Interstate 5, crossed a median without any signs of braking or
other evasive actions, and crashed head-on into a chartered tour bus transporting
students from Southern California to Humboldt State University in Northern
California. Ten people on the bus died and more than thirty were injured
in the FedEx truck accident.
Additionally, our accident attorneys successfully handled other
personal injury and
wrongful death cases against FedEx Ground. Having obtained evidence that FedEx was hesitant
to provide, learning their corporate structure and safety claims in prior
cases, will enhance our ability to litigate against them in other cases
that may arise from their negligence.
