Latino Attorney for Accidents involving Amazon Trucks

Amazon has quickly become one of the largest logistics companies in the United States with delivery trucks and vans across America.

From 18-wheelers delivering products to their massive hubs and smaller vans delivering boxes to residential homes and businesses, Amazon seems to be everywhere.  They run on tight schedules due to their guaranteed delivery promises.  So what happens when you have been involved in an accident caused by an Amazon driver?  Who is responsible?  Its it Amazon?  Is it the driver or company contracted by Amazon?  These accidents involving Amazon drivers and vehicles can be very complicated.  Your best course of action if you have been injured in these types of accidents should be to contact a personal injury lawyer like Attorney Javier Marcos.  He will be able to properly guide you and represent you to get the maximum compensation.

How often do Amazon truck accidents happen?

Accidents involving the larger 18-wheeler trailer trucks are more rare but cause greater damage and injury.  From 2018 to 2021, there have been over 50 serious Amazon truck accidents resulting in 14 deaths and 60 serious injuries.  Accidents involving the smaller Amazon delivery vans are even greater since there are many more of them and they drive around populated inner city streets.  There are many Amazon “last-mile” hubs in and around the Greater Houston metroplex that includes nearby cities like Bellaire, Sugar Land, Katy, Pasadena and Kingwood.  In addition to trucks that you know are Amazon because of the markings, Amazon contracts out thousands of on-demand drivers that also deliver Amazon purchases.

Who is liable in an accident involving an at fault Amazon Truck Delivery Driver?

If you get hit by a vehicle or truck that is delivering products for Amazon, do you know who is responsible to pay for damages?  The driver might work for a company that is contracted by Amazon and therefore, Amazon is not directly responsible.  Amazon provides free liability insurance for its drivers and many companies that contract out for Amazon are large with significant financial capability. 

The best way to navigate the complexity of getting into an accident with an Amazon truck is to talk to Attorney Javier Marcos.  He is experienced and understands the law when it comes to accidents involving an employee or contracted driver.

Who's at fault?

The driver – many times it is the driver who is primarily at fault due to distracted or reckless driving.  They can be sued for damages if they are an independent contractor.  In serious accidents, there is a good chance that their insurance maximums may not cover all damages.

The trucking company – if the driver is an employee of a trucking or delivery company contracted by Amazon, then they can also be held liable for damages if it can be shown that they contributed to the accident by not following safety standards in maintaining vehicles, hiring or training drivers, etc.

Vehicle manufacturer – more rarely, if a defect in the vehicle or any part of the vehicle significantly contributed to the accident, they can be held liable as well.  This is a complex issue that should be investigated by an experienced attorney.

Accidents involving Amazon owned vehicles

As we have stated, we cannot stress enough the complex issues surrounding accidents involving Amazon owned or contracted trucks.  The use of contracted drivers and on-demand drivers is still relatively new. Laws and interpretation of laws governing these types of accidents are still being tested.  Additionally, Amazon like all big companies make it difficult to get the fair amount of compensation for accidents.  Your best chance is to retain an experienced truck accident lawyer like Attorney Javier Marcos.

Steps to take if you have been in an accident with an Amazon truck

Move to a safe location

If possible move yourself and your vehicle to a safe location. On a busy road, stay in your vehicle. Many secondary accidents occur when people walk around their accident on congested roadways.

Get medical attention

If someone has not, call 911. This will get the police and EMS to your location. Seek medical attention for your injuries. Many people worry about hospital bills but the costs for not getting necessary medical care can be more costly. In addition, the hospital will keep a detailed record of the injuries you sustained which may be critical in your accident claim.

Get information about the other driver

The police will most likely obtain all the information you need about the other driver but its always good to be safe and get it yourself if possible. Take photos of the other vehicle and include the license plate. You can quickly take photos of the other driver's ID card and insurance cards. The police should provide you with a "case number"

Watch what you say at the accident

Answer questions factually. Do not discuss who is at fault, responsibility issues or apologize on scene. Answer police officer questions truthfully and as succinctly as possible.
