Compensation You May Be Entitled To Receive

If you’ve been injured in an Amazon truck accident, you may be entitled to various types of compensation if you file a personal injury lawsuit. These include:

  • Economic damages: These damages cover quantifiable financial losses, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage.
  • Non-economic damages: These damages compensate for subjective losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases involving egregious negligence or intentional misconduct, the court may award punitive damages to punish the defendant and deter similar future behavior.

At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we have a proven track record of securing significant settlements for our clients in Pennsylvania truck accident cases:

How Amazon's Policies Raise the Risk of Delivery Truck Accidents

As the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon has built its reputation on fast, reliable delivery. However, this emphasis on speed can come at a cost. According to a Business Insider report, Amazon delivery drivers are expected to deliver between 250 and 300 packages per day on average. That number rises to as high as 400 during peak holiday periods. This intense pressure to meet delivery quotas can cause driver fatigue, rushed driving, and an increased accident risk.

Moreover, a ProPublica investigation revealed that Amazon’s delivery network is linked to numerous accidents, injuries, and even fatalities. The report found that Amazon’s focus on rapid expansion and cost-cutting measures has resulted in inadequate safety training and oversight of its delivery drivers. Amazon has frustrated U.S. Senators by evading direct questions about safety practices and even wrote a letter to Congress that skirted requests for safety protocol information.

Amazon's Attempts at Evading Liability

Amazon’s delivery network is complex, with the company utilizing both Amazon Flex drivers and third-party Delivery Service Partners, or DSPs. While the company insures Amazon Flex drivers, DSPs are independent contractors who must carry their own insurance. This distinction allows Amazon to distance itself from liability for accidents involving DSP drivers. Meanwhile, Amazon continues to hire DSP drivers, increasing the number of drivers not insured by the retail giant.

The legal implications of this job status classification are still being debated in courts across the country. A 2020 case involving rideshare “gig” workers in Pennsylvania addressed the issue, with a lower court favoring the classification of Uber drivers as employees. However, the matter is still pending appeal and remains unresolved. However, courts in two states—Wisconsin and Virginia—have recently classified Amazon drivers as employees in 2023 opinions, potentially setting a precedent for holding the company accountable for accidents caused by its drivers.

Given the complexity of Amazon’s business model and the unsettled state of the law, it is essential to work with an experienced attorney who can navigate these challenges and determine the best path forward for your case.

How Long Do I Have To File My Claim?

Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases, including those involving Amazon truck accidents, is generally two years from the incident date. Therefore, you generally have two years to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries and losses. Failing to file within this timeframe can result in losing your right to pursue legal action. 

Contact an attorney promptly after an accident to ensure your claim is filed within the statute of limitations. The knowledgeable attorneys at Cordisco & Saile LLC can help you understand your rights and guide you through the legal process.

"If you're involved in a trucking accident, you should notify a lawyer immediately. It's important that we start our investigation almost from the beginning because the insurance company or the trucking company sends their own investigators and team to the accident scene to try to gather evidence and reduce their liability."
