Fort Lauderdale Amazon Delivery Truck Accident Lawyers

Attorneys in South Florida for Those Injured in Crashes With Amazon Trucks and Vans

Online shopping has become a fundamental aspect of the American economy, and people expect to be able to purchase items with the simple click of a button and have them delivered to their homes quickly. Amazon stands out among retailers in this regard, offering customers nationwide service in which they can receive the times they order within two days or less. With millions of people taking advantage of these services, it is not surprising why Amazon has become so successful. However, this convenience comes at a price. Amazon delivery drivers must deliver hundreds of packages daily while following tight schedules that allow the company to cut down on costs. Because of this, Amazon drivers may make dangerous errors that can have serious consequences. Due to the unsafe practices followed by Amazon, delivery drivers may become involved in car accidents that result in injuries to others.

After being involved in accidents with Amazon drivers, victims may be uncertain of the steps to take to recover fair compensation for their damages. Determining the causes of a crash and establishing liability on behalf of Amazon or other parties can prove, so it is essential that victims seek representation from an adept attorney who understands these types of cases. The lawyers of The Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A. understand the suffering that Amazon delivery accidents can inflict on victims and their family members. That is why we proudly advocate for injury victims, helping them pursue justice for the harm done to them. We will never back down against corporate giants like Amazon, and we work tenaciously to make sure our clients can secure the full amount of compensation they are entitled to under the law.

Holding Amazon Liable for Delivery Driver Accidents

Far too often, accidents involving Amazon delivery drivers take place due to the company's unsafe policies and unrealistic expectations. Drivers must meet quotas and deadlines with no room for mistakes or delays, and because of this, they are often racing against time just to get from one stop to another in time. With such pressure on their shoulders, it can become difficult for them to maintain safety while driving. They may engage in unsafe practices, including driving at unsafe speeds, tailgating, disregarding traffic lights and stop signs, and failing to look out for cyclists or pedestrians. This negligence poses an immense risk to anyone who shares the roads with Amazon drivers.

As they race to meet tight schedules, Amazon drivers may become involved in accidents that cause severe harm to other motorists or passengers, as well as pedestrians or other people on the roads. Accidents may be caused by the carelessness of Amazon drivers such as when they make turns onto streets or driveways without looking both ways beforehand. Drivers may need to check their phones for directions or to look up information about upcoming deliveries, or they may engage in other forms of distracted driving, such as eating and drinking. Amazon delivery vehicles may also obstruct traffic when drivers stop to make deliveries. All of these practices can put other people on the road at risk of being injured in accidents.

Despite the fact that Amazon maintains control over delivery schedules and the procedures followed when making deliveries, it often tries to avoid accountability for any accidents by asserting that it does not directly employ delivery drivers. Many drivers work as independent contractors or for third-party providers, and because of this, Amazon may claim that it is not responsible for drivers' negligent behavior. This assertion flies in the face of common sense, since it is clear that Amazon has full control over nearly everything drivers do while they are making deliveries. To make sure these issues will be addressed correctly, those who have been injured by the negligence of Amazon drivers can seek counsel from an experienced lawyer who can help combat Amazon's attempts to avoid or reduce its financial responsibility for delivery vehicle accidents.
