Estes Express Lines Truck Accident Lawyers

Representing People Hurt or Killed by Estes Express Lines Truck Accidents

Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, Estes Express Lines is one of the largest trucking companies in the United States, moving over 50,000 packages a day from over 260 terminals coast to coast. Estes operates 7,228 commercial freight vehicles and employs over 19,000 employees nationwide, but despite its success, it has not developed a strong safety record. The $3.2 billion company was involved in 501 crashes over the last 2 years alone and received 506 Unsafe Driving Violations across almost every state in the country.

All of this data was taken from the FMCSA website, which you can see for yourself here.

There is simply no excuse for having such a poor safety record. As a trucking company, Estes Express Lines’ first responsibility is to hire safe drivers and provide them with adequate training, good routes, and ample time for rest. Their failure to do so could be catastrophic for dozens of people every year.

From 2020–2021, Estes Express Lines was cited for violations that included:

  • Speeding 15+ mph over the limit
  • Speeding in a construction zone
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while impaired by illness or fatigue
  • Failure to use caution in hazardous conditions

Injuries & Fatalities Caused by Estes Express Lines Crashes

As a trucking company, Estes Express Lines is responsible for massive machines that weigh up to 80,000 pounds and can hit with as much force as a train car. It’s no wonder that the nature of Estes-involved collisions are serious, many of which resulted in critical injuries or death. Since June 2019, Estes-involved collisions have caused 13 fatalities and over 100 critically injured.

Truck accidents often cause injuries like:

Statistics like these are why our Estes Express Line truck accident lawyers fight to get our clients as much as possible to pay for medical care, lost income, and pain and suffering. Companies like this are obligated to operate their trucks safely and carefully. Instead, their policies and lack of driver training cause serious harm to motorists nationwide while company lawyers deny any responsibility.
