According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), UPS and FedEx were involved in the following crashes for the 24 months before November 3, 2021:

When a FedEx or UPS truck is involved in a vehicle accident, the company could be liable for damages caused by the accident. However, you would need to prove that the delivery truck driver caused the traffic accident. The evidence may also prove that the company is vicariously liable for the truck driver’s actions.


The causes of delivery truck accidents in Miami vary, but many crashes involve some type of driver negligence. 

Factors that could contribute to the cause of a delivery truck accident include:

  • Reading or sending text messages while driving
  • Excessive speed
  • Drowsy driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to obey traffic laws
  • Tailgating
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Inadequate truck maintenance
  • Use of alcohol and/or drugs

Other factors could also contribute to the cause of the crash, such as road, traffic, and weather conditions. If the accident involves multiple factors, our attorneys may retain an accident reconstructionist to identify each factor and assign blame to the correct party.

These companies place an enormous amount of pressure on drivers to meet delivery deadlines. Traffic, weather, and other conditions may slow drivers down, causing them to take risks to make up time. Rushing to make deliveries can lead to car crashes.

Injuries Sustained in Accidents Involving Delivery Trucks

The injuries a person could sustain in a delivery truck accident depend on the circumstances of the crash. A head-on crash or rollover accident can result in a wrongful death. However, someone could also die in a rear-end accident or side-impact crash.

Injuries that a person may sustain in an accident with a delivery truck include:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Scarring and lacerations

Seeking immediate medical treatment after a delivery truck accident is essential for proving a personal injury claim. You must have evidence that you were injured to prove that the crash was the cause of your injuries.


Many trucking companies carry large liability insurance policies to cover accident claims. For example, UPS has a $1 million auto liability insurance policy for its trucks, and FedEx has $5 million liability insurance policy for its vehicles.

Even though the companies have insurance policies, it does not mean they will automatically pay your accident claim. The company may fight your claim by alleging you were partially to blame for the cause of the crash. It may even allege that the accident did not cause your injuries or you are exaggerating your injuries.

These large corporations and their insurance providers have enormous resources to fight accident claims. As a result, an accident victim may not receive the compensation they deserve for damages without an experienced lawyer.

You should be compensated for all damages, including:

  • Medical expenses and bills
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Reductions in future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability and impairment
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

The company will not tell you if you are accepting a settlement amount that is far below the value of your damages. You need trusted legal advice to ensure that you are not taken advantage of by a large corporation.

I used West & West for my personal injury claim - a slip and fall that involved a trip to the emergency room. Michael West was able to successfully get my medical bills paid and I walked away with money in my pocket. Both Michael and his paralegal were very helpful throughout the whole process.

West and West did an excellent job representing our family's estate settlement during the probate process. They are skilled, up to date, and were patient with us and the beneficiaries and helped us keep everything on track during our extended process. Laura and the others were always amazing with us too.

I enjoyed dealing with a local law firm with strong roots in the community. Probating my Uncle's Will was emotional and personal, but the staff made the process easier than I ever imagined. The process was smooth and easy. The care shown by the staff is knowledgeable and caring.
