The Story of Amazon Having Drivers

The way we live today everybody wants everything Right Now!

Amazon has employed thousands of drivers that deliver packages all over the state of California, very similar to the post office workers.

The drivers are basically independent contractors that are hired by Amazon.

The role of the independent contractor has changed a lot since Uber and Lyft stepped onto the scene.

The drivers that work for Amazon do have rules they need to follow (even though they are independent contractors).

And nowadays Amazon itself can be held responsible for some accidents and injuries that their drivers cause and are involved in.

The drivers that work for Amazon deliver products sold by everyday people, and they deliver products from the Amazon marketplace, and food from Amazon Fresh.

Our rideshare accident lawyers at Law Offices of Daniel Kim are experienced in negotiating and settling Amazon delivery accidents that involve injuries.

Amazon Delivery Drivers Involved in Car Accidents

Drivers that work for Amazon are deliverymen that have to deliver countless packages all day long.

This type of pressure can cause stress and sometimes bad driving habits as
the delivery drivers are trying to make up time and drive recklessly.

Amazon is well known for being a data-driven company that checks metrics all day long on their drivers delivering packages.

Amazon knows when a package is picked up, how long drivers take to deliver, etc.

Since Amazon promotes same day delivery and 2 day shipping with their Prime services, it is no surprise that they care a lot about deadlines and being efficient.

Amazon wants to beat UPS and FedEx as the top delivery company, and with those goals comes a lot of pressure on employees and drivers, etc.

In turn Amazon truck drivers (Flex, etc.) are told to deliver their packages as quickly as possible, and sometimes this can lead an Amazon driver to drive recklessly.

Amazon drivers might be –

Speeding

Run stop signs and red lights

Parking illegally

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Distracted driving (texting, emailing, google maps)

Tailgating

Not using turn signals

As Amazon grows and continues to keep hiring more and more delivery drivers, normal civilians are now at hiring risk of being hit by an Amazon delivery driver.

Amazon drivers have been at fault for bicycle accidents, motorcycle
accidents, pedestrian accidents, and the normal single car accidents, etc.

Being in a car crash is stressful and it’s hard in the moment to concentrate and make good decisions, but it’s very important to seek medical attention immediately.

The longer you wait to seek medical help will only hurt your claim later as the insurance companies will then say your injuries weren’t that bad, or you got injured in another way.

If you need help getting a copy of the police report, or you need help collecting evidence, or dealing with the insurance companies, call us.

We are Here to Help.

How Long Do You Have To Sue Amazon?

If you were a victim in a car accident with an Amazon driver, then in California you only have 2 years (from the date of the injury) to file an injury claim against Amazon or the driver.

The statute of limitations is 2 years to ensure that any claims can be handled efficiently while evidence is available, and people still remember details, etc. etc.

If you are not sure how much time you have left to file a claim, or if your current attorney is not experienced in rideshare accidents, then call Daniel Kim today.

We will make sure that all the proper paperwork and documents are filed on time.

Do not fight the insurance companies alone.

Insurance Policy For Amazon Delivery Drivers

If you’ve been injured in a car crash involving an Amazon driver, you’ll be happy to know that Amazon does have an insurance policy they are required to carry.

This is very important when you file a claim for your injuries and you want to get compensated for your injuries.

Amazon does require that their drivers have insurance coverage before they can drive for Amazon.

In addition to this, Amazon offers additional coverage because personal auto insurance policies won’t be in effect during a commercial driving accident.

Million $$ Policy

Amazon does offer a liability coverage for up to $1 Million which covers your damages and any damages for a third-party that was injured in
the wreck.

This Million dollar policy is also in place to cover uninsured or even underinsured motorists who are involved in the accident, but don’t have sufficient insurance.

Along with this coverage, Amazon also has a $50k limit on collision and comprehensive coverage.

There are many cases where Amazon can be held liable for
what their drivers do.

For example they might hire drivers with a bad driving history, or Amazon didn’t screen a driver properly, and sometimes the Amazon drivers are just reckless and negligent.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with an Amazon driver then your best bet is to call us today for a Free
consultation.
