Logical to assume FedEx trucking accidents may delay deliveries

There may have been Tennessee residents waiting for FedEx deliveries who had to wait longer than expected recently. Although no information was provided as to whether the commercial truck that crashed was carrying deliveries at the time, it's to be expected that trucking accidents like this one could cause substantial service delays. In this particular situation, the FedEx driver is believed to have been negligent.

The truck was apparently approaching a red light when its operator failed to stop. Authorities say the truck went straight through the traffic light and smashed into two other vehicles. It was just after 4 p.m. when a pickup truck and sports utility vehicle took the impact of the collision.

Two people suffered injuries in the accident. The FedEx driver was not one of them. Police say they expect the commercial truck operator to receive a citation for failure to come to a stop at a red light. A temporary traffic light had to be installed following the collision as the FedEx truck took out a traffic light pole in the incident.

Tennessee trucking accidents often lead to litigation in civil court. This is because the law enables injured victims to file personal injury claims against any and all parties deemed responsible for their injuries. This process is often a means toward obtaining compensation for damages, which can then be used to cover medical costs and any other expenses associated with a particular accident, such as loss of income, property damage, or even counseling treatment for emotional trauma.
