What Is Comparative Fault In Fedex Truck Accident Claims?

October 17, 2023 Video

Recently, one of our clients asked what is comparative negligence in a FedEx case? Comparative negligence is a legal concept. The jury, at the end of the trial, compares the fault of those whose conduct caused an incident so that each of the parties who have fault is assigned a percentage of fault. For example, FedEx will be determined what percentage of fault of this collision they caused. FedEx is going to blame the driver of your vehicle, and they may blame others, and then those other persons who have fault will have their percentages applied as well. The percentage of fault applicable to FedEx will be paid by them. There may be what is called joint and several liability, as well, where FedEx may have to pay for the full amount of damages even if there’s comparative fault, depending on complex legal factors.
