Have You Been Injured by an Amazon Delivery Van?  

Posted on in

Bexar County Personal Injury LawyersWe have all seen Prime delivery vans speeding through neighborhoods, maneuvering around cars, and parking right smack in the middle of a road. Although most consumers value the fast delivery service, this is a convenience that may come with a risk for other motorists and pedestrians. In 2021, a study found that one in five Amazon delivery drivers suffered job-related injuries, many of which involved an accident on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in an Amazon delivery accident you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.

The Harsh Reality for Amazon Drivers

Any type of vehicle accident can lead to painful injuries, not to mention great financial losses. In instances when you are not responsible for the accident, you should not have to bear this heavy burden alone. The responsibility should lie on the driver who caused the accident. It is no secret that Amazon pressures its delivery drivers to make a mass amount of deliveries each day. While Amazon requires contracted delivery drivers to check their vehicles at the start of their shift, it has been reported by drivers that they are allegedly pressured to ignore vehicle damage and complete the inspections as quickly as possible in order to meet quotas.  

Establishing Liability

Amazon should be responsible for the actions of its delivery drivers. The company maintains control over its entire operation and has established rules and policies for drivers to follow including schedules and routes. After all, they wear Amazon uniforms and drive vehicles with the Amazon logo. These drivers are required to follow rules set forth by Amazon, therefore, if you are injured by one of its drivers you may be able to take legal action and hold the company responsible for injuries that occurred because of its policies.

Many Amazon delivery drivers are not Amazon employees but independent contractors. That allows the delivery giant to try to escape liability if one of its drivers causes an accident. But do not fret. Amazon offers supplemental car insurance for its drivers, which can cover up to $1,000,000 in coverage for their drivers and requires delivery drivers to have personal car insurance. If you are injured in an accident involving an Amazon delivery van, you may be able to receive compensation from the driver’s personal car insurance. We understand that insurance providers tend to fight back and limit payout amounts. An experienced attorney at Alford & Clark Injury Attorneys, will be able to help you receive compensation for damages to your vehicle, medical expenses, and additional losses. If the insurance company does not offer a fair settlement, an experienced personal injury attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit, go to court, and fight for adequate compensation for you.
