Can You File a Claim If You’ve Been Injured by an Amazon Delivery Truck?

Amazon is the largest e-retailer in the country and if you live in Miami, Hollywood, or anywhere in South Florida, you likely drive by Amazon delivery drivers all the time. While getting packages fast is convenient, it can be devastating to be in a collision with a delivery truck from Amazon. Because of the way the company is structured, it can also be a challenge to get fair compensation for your injuries.


The Challenge with Amazon Delivery Truck Injury Claims

Have you seen many Amazon deliver trucks on the road? Despite the number of packages the company delivers every day, you likely don’t see many of their trucks. This is because Amazon contracts other companies to deliver their parcels.

Amazon also offers fast delivery on its orders, which can place considerable pressure on drivers. This pressure can mean drivers take shortcuts which lead to sideswipe, rear-end shunt, and other collisions. Yet in the event of a collision, it’s not always clear whether Amazon or the driver are liable. In fact, the different parties involved may all point the finger at each other and refuse to accept liability.

If you have been in a traffic collision with a driver delivering Amazon parcels, this can put you in a precarious position. Amazon has taken steps to limit its liability and may claim the at-fault company is the partner delivering their parcels. Some of these businesses contract out their work to drivers who are not employees, and so the companies already contracted by Amazon may blame the contract driver. This can leave injured plaintiffs confused and anxious about who is liable and whether they can get compensation for their injuries.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
