As one of the largest e-commerce companies globally, Amazon has revolutionized the way we shop and receive goods. Unfortunately, the corporation is infamous for burdening its drivers with tight schedules and placing pressure on them to meet demanding quotas.

Secrets to Winning an Amazon Delivery Crash Case
After an Amazon delivery accident, victims may have several different options for compensation depending on the driver’s employment status. However, determining who to hold liable can be complex.
There are typically three categories of Amazon delivery drivers:
Amazon Drivers- these drivers are employed by Amazon and drive Amazon vans to deliver packages to consumers’ doorsteps.
Amazon Flex Drivers– these drivers are employed by Amazon but use their own vehicles for package delivery.
Contracted Drivers- these are companies or individuals who are contracted to work for Amazon delivery services. They may drive Amazon vans or their own vehicles for package delivery services.
All of these drivers are under stress to meet time constraints set in place by Amazon. These conditions can increase the likelihood of accidents.
If the driver is an employee of Amazon, you may be able to file a claim against the company’s insurance policy. However, Amazon drivers are also required to carry auto insurance; depending on your situation, you may be able to file a claim against either policy. If the driver is classified as an independent contractor, you may pursue a claim against the driver’s insurance policy.
In any case, you may face difficulty holding either party liable. Amazon may claim that the accident is not their responsibility while the driver or other contracted company may say the same thing. Due to their complex nature, navigating Amazon claims can be challenging, and often leaves many victims unsure about the best course of action. An Amazon delivery accident attorney from Monge & Associates can help evaluate your case and determine your optimal path to compensation.
What to Do If You Are Injured by an Amazon Delivery Driver

Call 911 to report the accident to law enforcement and obtain emergency medical attention.
Seek medical care, even if your injuries seem minor. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
Obtain the Amazon delivery driver’s name, contact information, and the details of their employer.
If there were any witnesses to the accident, try to obtain their contact information. Their statements can be valuable when establishing liability and supporting your case.
Take photos of the accident scene, including vehicle damage, your injuries, and any relevant road conditions.
