Dallas Amazon Delivery Vehicle Accident Attorney

Injured In An Accident With An Amazon Driver?

Amazon is the undisputed king of online shopping. It is estimated that Amazon ships an average of 608 million packages annually—approximately 1.6 million packages every day! This volume requires a massive operation to get the packages to their destinations quickly. In many areas, Amazon has partnered with FedEx, UPS, DHL, and USPS to complete their deliveries, but they also have their own delivery vehicles and third-party contractors to rely less on the traditional delivery services. As Amazon increases in popularity, so does the risk of Amazon delivery truck accidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident due to another driver's negligence, the team at Jerry D. Andrews P.C. is here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected, and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses.

Causes of Delivery Truck Accidents

Most delivery truck drivers are safe drivers, and they want to get home to their families just like everyone else. However, when a delivery truck driver acts in a negligent manner, it can cause not only severe damage to other vehicles, but it can also result in devastating injuries and death.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the most common causes of delivery truck accidents include:

Amazon delivery trucks are not the only issue. Amazon has begun to contract with third-party delivery drivers and delivery companies—some of whom use their own private vehicles—to keep up with the demand of Two-Day Prime, Prime Same Day Delivery, and Amazon Fresh. These drivers are paid minimally and only make their money if they can make multiple deliveries daily and if they do so quickly. This often puts the delivery driver in a hurried, distracted state, making accidents much more common.

Delivery Driver Liability

If you or a loved one has been injured by an Amazon delivery driver, it can be confusing to determine who is liable for your damages and injuries. If the driver is employed by one of the major delivery companies like the USPS, UPS, or FedEx, then that companies could be liable.

If the delivery driver was a third-party contractor, things get a little more complicated. In the event of a claim or lawsuit, Amazon may not be considered liable for your injuries because the company does not technically employ those drivers. However, unless these third-party contractors have commercial driving insurance, their insurance company may not pay for the damages or injuries you have sustained following an accident.

The best option following an Amazon delivery truck accident is to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Board certified personal injury attorney Jerry D. Andrews is experienced in determining who may be at-fault for your accident and ensuring they are held responsible for their actions.
