In our FedEx case, we immediately hired an accident reconstruction expert. We made sure the FedEx truck was moved to a safe location and not scrapped. I went with the expert to inspect the truck. I found that my client’s seat belt was broken as it was missing a safety latch. This finding gave us another avenue, or theory of liability, against FedEx. Through depositions, we discovered that FedEx mandated seat belt use for all occupants in the delivery trucks.
