The Ammons Law Firm Settles Personal Injury Lawsuit Against FedEx

Houston, Texas – The Ammons Law Firm is pleased to announce the successful resolution of a lawsuit filed against Federal Express Corporation (FedEx). The case, which alleged negligence, negligence per se, respondeat superior, negligent entrustment, vicarious liability, statutory employment doctrines, and apparent and/or actual agency, has been settled to the satisfaction of all parties involved. The plaintiffs’ names and the specific settlement amount will remain confidential.

According to the lawsuit, FedEx contracted the defendant driver to operate its delivery vehicles in Oklahoma. The plaintiffs contended that FedEx failed to provide the driver with the necessary training and supervision required for safe operation. While driving a FedEx-owned delivery van and hauling FedEx packages, the defendant driver struck the plaintiff’s vehicle in his travel lane at the intersection of Dotson Drive and Mayfield Road in Oklahoma City.

The plaintiffs alleged that the defendant driver, in the course and scope of his employment and agency as a FedEx driver, failed to maintain his lane of travel and violated Oklahoma’s Rules of the Road. These rules dictate responsibilities such as making right turns as close to the right-hand curb as practicable, yielding the right-of-way, driving within a single lane, refraining from reckless and careless behavior, and obeying traffic regulations.

As a result of the defendant’s alleged negligence per se, the plaintiffs suffered severe injuries, including physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, disfigurement, loss of earning capacity, and medical expenses.

The Ammons Law Firm diligently represented the plaintiffs throughout the legal proceedings, seeking fair compensation for the damages suffered due to the collision. The confidential settlement reached between the parties signifies a resolution that satisfies all involved.

The Ammons Law Firm is widely recognized for its skill in handling personal injury cases and its commitment to advocating for the rights of individuals harmed by the negligence of others. The firm remains dedicated to providing comprehensive legal representation to its clients and holding responsible parties accountable for their actions.

Note: The plaintiffs’ names and specific settlement details have been omitted to respect the confidentiality agreement.
