FedEx and UPS accidents happen for many of the same reasons as other car crashes.
Drivers may practice bad habits, such as:
But there are other reasons unique to these delivery trucks that could contribute to an accident:
Drivers for both FedEx and UPS are focused on the clock and making package status updates. During the course of the day, they may ignore traffic safety rules in the process, leading to an accident.
Both FedEx and UPS have large, top-heavy vehicles that are prone to rollovers and are much heavier than passenger vehicles. In a collision, anyone in a passenger vehicle can suffer serious injuries. In the event of a rollover, people in passenger cars, bicyclists, and pedestrians may all be in danger of catastrophic injuries.
The impact will depend on the size of the truck and how fast it was going at the time of the accident.
A driver involved in an accident with a FedEx or UPS truck may suffer injuries such as:
Even if you don’t think you’re badly hurt, see a doctor (or visit the emergency room) anyway. At the time of the accident, the body releases endorphins and adrenaline. These hormones dull pain and increase energy, causing a “fight or flight” reaction.
Eventually, they wear off, leaving you in pain from injuries you didn’t realize you had at the time of the accident. Because some injuries don’t immediately show symptoms, waiting to get medical care can lead to a life-threatening situation.
