Why Are Centralia Amazon Delivery Truck Accidents So Common?

Amazon truck accidents can be caused by intoxication, improper maintenance, mechanical failure, or human error – and due to their size and weight, can lead to devastating impacts for the people involved.

But Amazon truck accidents are particularly common.

Some reports have suggested that Amazon’s practices contribute to this high number of accidents. But what other reasons could add to the dangerous conditions?

For one, high pressure on drivers for timely delivery by companies like Amazon can contribute to drivers driving more dangerously. This could include:
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Driving with faulty equipment
  • Driving while distracted
  • Poorly maintaining vehicles
Accidents of this severity can lead to various types of serious injuries to all parties involved. These injuries may include:
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Lacerations

Many Amazon truck drivers have also fallen prey to the conglomerate and its ever-increasing desire for faster deliveries. The standards and expectations that come with doing their job have become unrealistic and taxing, putting themselves and everyone on the road in critical danger. Our goal is to hold all negligent parties responsible, even when those parties attempt to hide their culpability.

Can Amazon Be Held Liable for Delivery Truck Accidents?

Not sure who’s at fault after your accident with an Amazon truck? Things may be even more complicated if the driver is a third-party delivery driver. Amazon may claim they are not technically liable for your accident.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon has argued in court “that it has little role in overseeing its contractors’ safety on the road.” Nevertheless, several cases have come up against the tech giant.

These third-party contractors are not considered “Amazon employees.” However, these drivers still have insurance for commercial liability and can be held at fault. Amazon attempts to remove fault from their company by not having a direct connection to these accidents, while in reality, Amazon does keep track of third-party companies, Amazon individual drivers, and Amazon flex drivers through their app.

Amazon Delivery Truck Accident Cases

In 2019, a 9-month-old baby died in an accident caused by an Amazon delivery driver. According to the truck driver, he hadn’t seen the car with the infant because he was so focused on running late with his deliveries.

More recently, one victim of a tragic Amazon truck driving accident – who faced life-threatening injuries that left him unsure if he would ever walk again or regain control of his arms – sued Amazon in state court in Georgia in 2021.

In his suit, the Plaintiff accused Amazon of all kinds of negligent practices, including:

  • Informing the driver of the wrong speed limit
  • Sending text reminders to prompt drivers to drive faster
  • Mandating an unrealistic delivery schedule that compromised safety

Centralia Amazon Delivery Truck Accident FAQs

What Does the Law Say About Lawsuits in Truck Delivery Crash Cases?

A person is considered negligent when they fail to exercise reasonable care in his/her actions, which results in another person’s injury or loss.

If you were injured in a delivery truck collision with an Amazon driver, our experienced truck accident attorneys can help you file a lawsuit against the delivery truck driver, the company they worked for (which may not be Amazon directly), and/or the insurance company.

Why Are There So Many Accidents with Amazon Delivery Trucks?

Accidents with Amazon trucks often happen due to drivers being tired, speeding, using faulty equipment, being distracted, or not keeping vehicles in good shape. This is largely because of the pressure to deliver packages quickly. If you’ve been in such an accident, an Amazon truck accident attorney can help navigate your claims and potential compensation.

What Injuries Are Common in Amazon Truck Accidents?

Common injuries from Amazon truck accidents include broken bones, brain injuries, spinal damage, internal bleeding, organ damage, and cuts. These accidents can be severe. If you’ve suffered from these or any injuries in an accident, consulting with an Amazon truck accident attorney can guide you through the recovery and claims process.

Can You Directly Blame Amazon for Their Delivery Truck Accidents?

Determining Amazon’s liability in delivery truck accidents is complex, especially with third-party drivers involved. Amazon may deny responsibility, claiming these drivers are not their employees. However, since Amazon monitors these drivers via its app, they can still be held accountable in some cases. An experienced Amazon truck accident attorney can assist in assessing Amazon’s liability and help secure the compensation you deserve.

What Are The Challenges of Filing a Claim Against Amazon for a Delivery Truck Accident?

Filing a claim against Amazon can be challenging due to the company’s use of independent contractors for deliveries, which can complicate liability issues. Amazon has a robust legal team, and it might argue that it is not responsible for the actions of independent contractors. Gathering evidence of negligence and building a strong case is crucial. An experienced attorney can help overcome these challenges by thoroughly investigating the accident, gathering evidence, and negotiating with all parties to seek fair compensation for your injuries.
