Were you hit by a FedEx truck driver? Let us help you get the money you deserve.

Truck accident cases are very different than your typical car accident. In truck accidents, the stakes are much higher and there are many complex issues to consider and investigate. In case of an accident where safety regulations have been violated, the company may be compelled by law to pay the victim’s medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses. When you or your loved ones have been involved in an accident with a FedEx truck in Dallas (or anywhere in the DFW Metroplex), you need immediate legal assistance to protect your rights, thoroughly evaluate your situation and determine how to proceed with a claim against the responsible parties.

At Rasansky Law Firm, we have more than 20 years’ experience in trucking accidents in Dallas, Texas. This means that we’re your best bet at any chance of a successful resolution to your case. We’ll make sure to evaluate claims in a timely manner, preserve evidence and create an effective courtroom strategy. We are familiar with the federal regulations that trucking companies need to follow, giving us the edge that will make sure that your case gets the attention that it needs in court. You don’t have to worry about anything; our team will handle all legal issues, leaving you to focus on recovering from your injuries.

FedEx Truck Accidents

The common causes of truck accidents in Dallas are;

  1. Defective brakes
  2. Reckless driving
  3. Fatigue
  4. Poor load distribution
  5. Pressure to meet deadlines by truck company

Accidents involving trucks are generally more serious due to their sheer size.  As a result, federal laws have been enacted to attempt to reduce the number of accidents on our roads.  Therefore, truck drivers must respect certain safety rules when preparing their trucks operate on American roads.

Trucking companies are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Federal Department of Transportation (USDOT) as well as the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). Individuals operating trucks such as FedEx box trucks and semi-trailers are by law required to follow these rules. Unfortunately they don’t always do so, resulting in serious car accidents.

Federal laws on 18-wheeler truck drivers (and not for passenger cars).

  1. Weight restrictions.
  2. Thorough recruitment processes for drivers.
  3. Specific rest breaks are required for drivers.
  4. The amount of time a truck driver can spend on the road (hours of service).
  5. Commercial Driver’s Licenses requirements as put down by the state.
