Federal Express (FedEx) and United Parcel Service (UPS) are two of the biggest package delivery service companies in the United States and even the world, employing tens of thousands of trucks and commercial vans for their pickup and delivery services. On most instances, FedEx and UPS trucks deliver in a safe and hazard-free manner. Unfortunately, commercial delivery trucks can sometimes cause devastating auto accidents that result in catastrophic, fatal injuries.
If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a truck accident caused by a FedEx or UPS driver in Pennsylvania, The Law Offices of Anthony Urban, P.C. is ready to help you recover your entitled compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. Our Schuylkill County personal injury attorney can thoroughly evaluate your case and determine all of your legal options to get the most favorable outcome possible.
By law, employers are liable for the negligent actions of their employees, but only if they were acting within the scope of their job duties during the time of the collision. Since FedEx and UPS directly employ and train their drivers, they are typically responsible for them if they cause a crash. If the driver is involved in or responsible for an accident while working, the company may be held liable and forced to pay damages.
When figuring out who to file a claim against, however, you need to also consider the cause of the accident. For example, if the truck experienced a mechanical malfunction, you may file a claim against the company for not properly maintaining the vehicle or even the company’s mechanic, as opposed to the truck driver.
Our Schuylkill County personal injury attorney is ready to represent you in your time of need so that you can focus on the most important element of your claim, which is your recovery. With more than two decades of experience, we understand what it takes to get the results you desire and your life back on track.
