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 Express, FedEx Ground, and FedEx Freight. In total, all three utilize roughly 210,000 delivery vehicles, including vans, box trucks, and tractor-trailers. FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight only operate in North America.

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.
At Wisner Baum, our experience representing truck crash victims is vast. Some of our truck accident settlement agreements and verdicts include:
- $20 million accident verdict for wrongful death against Ride the Ducks International
- $15 million truck accident settlement
- $8.5 million truck accident verdict (plus pre and post-judgment interest) for wrongful death against Tyson Foods
- $6.9 million truck accident settlement during trial against a major truck company
- $6 million truck accident settlement
- $3.5 million truck accident settlement for wrongful death
- 75 truck crash lawsuits settled for $1 million or more
If you or a member of your family were the victim of a FedEx truck accident, you need a truck accident lawyer with experience litigating cases against major trucking companies like FedEx. Our firm will aggressively pursue claims to maximize compensation and hold the company accountable for any negligence.

Hire an Expert FedEx Truck Accident Lawyer for Your Case
FedEx 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and other company delivery vehicles crash nearly every day. In our experience, trucking companies will make every effort to limit the amount of compensation paid to anyone harmed in a car accident, pedestrian accident, or motorcycle crash involving one of their delivery trucks or tractor-trailers. The company—knowing that it may save them money—may offer a settlement agreement before you have had a chance to consult with an accident attorney. Resist the temptation to obtain a “quick” truck accident settlement until you have consulted attorneys who can assist you in evaluating your losses and the value of your case. In addition to seeking just compensation for our clients, our cases have helped the trucking industry improve safety measures. Your case may make the roads safer for thousands of people and prevent a future tragedy like the one that you and your family have suffered.
