Will County Amazon Delivery Accident Attorney

Amazon Delivery Driver Accident Lawyer in Naperville, IL

Amazon can be a great resource for online shoppers. You can find just about anything you need - they carry everything from clothing to groceries to toys and games. Online shopping saw a boom in popularity from 2020 onward, and many found online shopping through Amazon so convenient that they continue using it today.

This boom meant that Amazon needed more delivery drivers. While some Amazon delivery drivers are employees of Amazon in Amazon-owned commercial trucks similar to the ones used by FedEx or UPS, many others are independent contractors in their own personal vehicles. These contractors are not professional drivers and generally have no more training than any other driver. They are also motivated to make deliveries as quickly as possible - even when it means sacrificing safety.

Rathbun, Cservenyak & Kozol LLC can help if you have been injured in an accident caused by an Amazon delivery driver. Whether the driver in question is an Amazon employee or just a contractor, we have the legal skills needed to pursue the full amount of damages you are eligible to receive. We will carefully investigate your accident to prove the Amazon driver's carelessness so that we can help you get the money you need while you are recovering.

How Amazon Drivers Put You in Danger

Amazon drivers are often in a rush to make as many deliveries as they possibly can in the shortest amount of time. However, being in a rush while driving can cause Amazon drivers to make mistakes that can cause serious accidents. Drivers may be:

  • Distracted - Amazon drivers may be using their delivery app to plan their route to the next delivery or check in rather than minding the road. This can be immensely dangerous in residential areas where delivery drivers spend the bulk of their time. In addition to cars, pedestrians and bicyclists can be hit.
  • Fatigued - Fatigued drivers may have a slowed reaction time and exhibit poor judgment.
  • Speeding - Drivers may speed from one delivery to the next.
  • Intoxicated - Amazon drivers in personal vehicles have limited oversight and may drink alcohol or use drugs before or while working.

Our attorneys will conduct a careful investigation to determine the most likely cause of your Amazon delivery accident.

Recovering Compensation After an Amazon Delivery Accident

Recovering compensation after an Amazon accident can be very difficult to do without the help of an experienced attorney. There may be multiple liable parties involved. The source of compensation will depend on whether the driver in question was an Amazon employee or a contractor. If the driver was employed by Amazon, then you will likely be compensated by the company's insurance.

However, if the driver was a contractor in their personal vehicle, then you may need to pursue compensation from the driver's personal insurance policy. Amazon also provides its independent contractors with a supplemental insurance policy that may serve as a secondary source of compensation.

You may be able to recover compensation for expenses and financial losses such as:

  • Lost wages, including lost future wages if you cannot return to work for a long time or ever.
  • Medical costs, including the cost of future care you are likely to need.
  • Pain and suffering, among other noneconomic damages.
  • Property damage, such as the loss of your vehicle.

We will strive to see you recover the highest possible award.
