Reasons For Amazon Delivery Truck Accidents

Online sales continue to skyrocket as more consumers buy products online, especially since the Covid-19 pandemic started in 2020. The company developed Amazon Flex, Prime Same-Day Delivery, and Two-Day Prime to accommodate increased sales. Accidents are becoming common, with so many Amazon Prime vans and trucks on the road. The most common causes of these delivery truck accident include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding 
  • Delivery truck blind spots
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Aggressive driving
  • Improper loading 
  • Inadequate maintenance of the Amazon delivery van

Regardless of the cause, we know how to hold the responsible party accountable and will fight to protect your rights. 

Determining Liability In An Amazon Prime Truck Accident

There may be multiple parties involved in an Amazon delivery truck accident, including: 

  • The Amazon driver
  • Amazon or a third-party delivery contractor
  • A contractor driving the delivery van
  • The vehicle manufacturer
  • A mechanic for not repairing the vehicle correctly
  • A government entity that failed to maintain the road

For example, the driver may be liable if they were speeding or violating other traffic laws to meet their delivery schedule. Amazon may also be responsible if the driver was a company employee. On the other hand, a third-party contractor might not be a direct Amazon employee; however, they must carry commercial driver liability insurance to cover damages, including medical expenses and lost wages.  The vehicle manufacturer may also be liable if the cause of the accident was a defect in the vehicle. 

As you can see, determining liability in an Amazon truck accident is challenging, so working with a capable attorney is essential. That’s where J&Y Law comes in. Once we take your case, we will work to identify the responsible party or parties and explore all your legal remedies. 

Amazon Van Accident Injuries

Because of the size and weight of a delivery van, occupants of other vehicles and pedestrians can suffer serious injuries, such as:

  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Burns
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Loss of limb (amputations)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Who will pay your medical expenses and cover your lost wages? With the help of an experienced Amazon truck accident attorney, you can obtain compensation that considers all your medical and financial needs.

How J&Y Law Can Help

Whether your claim is against Amazon, the driver, or a third party, trust us to handle all the details. Our attorneys will:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation
  • Obtain a copy of the police report
  • Identify and interview witnesses, including the Amazon Prime driver
  • Review the driver’s record and accident history
  • Obtain and assess relevant information from Amazon (e.g. accident reports, data)
  • Collect medical evidence that documents your injuries
  • Take over communications with Amazon, other involved parties, and their attorneys
  • Negotiate a fair and just settlement
  • File a personal injury lawsuit if necessary

Most personal injury cases settle out of court, but we are prepared to go the distance to achieve the best possible outcome. We have the negotiating and trial skills to protect your rights and win you just compensation in or out of the courtroom. 

Damages We Will Fight For

The damages you may recover depend on several factors, such as the extent of your injuries, the identity of the responsible party, and the degree of your liability. However, you may be entitled to significant compensation that includes:

  • Medical expenses and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages – present and future
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability/disfigurement
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Attorney fees and court costs

Notably, if you were partly to blame for the truck accident, you can still recover damages; however, your award will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. Suppose the Amazon driver was speeding, but you made an illegal turn and are found to be 20 percent at fault. If your damages are $100,000, you will receive $80,000. You can depend on us to limit your liability and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
