US Xpress Truck Accident

US Xpress operates a large fleet of trucks in the US, and their trucks frequently cross within New Jersey. While their drivers are better than most trucking companies at avoiding accidents — they average just 100 bad accidents that cause just six deaths a year — if you’re in one of them, you’ll need a NJ trucking accident lawyer to get a fair US Xpress settlement for your damages. Call RAM Law as soon as after your accident as possible to start the process.

What Is US Xpress?

US Xpress is one of the largest truckload carriers in the United States. This transportation service was founded in 1986. They have over 7,000 tractors and over 15,000 trailers. They serve multiple industries, including automotive, retail and manufacturing.

Like all large delivery vehicles, big tractor trailers can be a menace on the highways and streets of New Jersey. Their weight alone prevents them from making sudden stops, which can result in rear-end collisions. The sheer size of these vehicles can lead to dangerous accidents, including:

What Damages Can a US Xpress Truck Accident Lawyer Recover?

An accident with any big rig truck results in severe damage and injury. A fully loaded tractor-trailer truck weighs at least 80,000 pounds and is about 50 feet long. The size and weight limits maneuverability, creating a greater risk of serious accidents. Damages that you may be able to recover with the aid of a US Xpress truck accident lawyer include:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Travel costs to and from medical appointments
  • Home health care
  • Home services, such as lawn maintenance and house cleaning chores that you couldn’t do while recovering
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Lost potential and future income due to a disability from the accident
  • Property damage or replacement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship

An accident of this magnitude may change your life. The chance that you’ll sustain debilitating, long-term injuries grow with the size and weight of the vehicle that hit you.

What’s the Average Settlement in an Accident Involving a US Xpress Truck?

While there’s no guaranteed amount for a US Xpress settlement, public records indicate that the average settlement is around $500,000. But the details in your claim determine the value of your case, which your RAM Law attorney explains to you. The factors that go into determining your settlement include:

  • The amount of personal property damage you suffered
  • The severity of the injuries incurred
  • How the accident happened and who is liable
  • Your future medical care requirements
  • Any loss of life because of the accident
  • The amount of insurance coverage that’s available for compensation
  • The amount of your lost wages
  • The loss of any potential income

All companies that have large delivery vehicles on the road are required to carry liability and property insurance. US Xpress and its drivers are covered by $1 million insurance policies.

How Do I Secure a US Xpress Settlement?

The two most important things to do immediately following an accident is get medical attention and report to the police. Additional actions to take include:

  • Report the accident to your automobile and medical insurance companies
  • Follow up with additional medical treatments
  • Inform your employer, family and friends
  • Retain an experienced US Xpress accident lawyer from RAM Law
  • Collect evidence, including medical records, police reports and witness statements
