Philadelphia Amazon Truck Accident Lawyer

Hundreds of thousands of drivers deliver for Amazon, but they are not employees of the online retail giant. Instead, they are independent contractors or work for delivery companies contracted with Amazon. That structure can make it difficult to determine whose insurance to turn to after a delivery driver is at fault in an accident. It also muddies the waters around who to name in a lawsuit.

How Much Time Do I Have To File an Amazon Truck Accident Claim?

Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitations on car accident claims that starts on the accident date. If you do not file on time, a judge will likely dismiss your lawsuit regardless of your injuries and damages. There are exceptions to the statute of limitations for minors or if the defendant leaves the state or hides. However, there is no guarantee a judge will agree to give you more time.

Even if you think you have plenty of time to file suit, don’t wait to consult an attorney. Waiting may allow the other party’s insurance company to drag out negotiations, hoping you miss your filing date. Meanwhile, evidence can disappear, and witnesses’ memories can fade. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers will act quickly to meet all deadlines and preserve critical proof to build the strongest case.


Our motto is “People come first.” We are honored when client testimonials mention our legal skills, commitment to client communication, and ability to get positive results.

"The staff has kept me informed each step of the way through this process. Throughout everything they have been so kind and empathetic to my situation. I can't thank them enough for all they are doing for me."


We’ve been practicing personal injury law for over 30 years and have collected millions of dollars for accident victims. Some of our more notable case results include the following:

$10 million settlement

Our client was a local first responder who was struck by a passing truck’s side mirror while assisting with a disabled vehicle. He suffered significant injuries, was left unable to work, and needed help modifying his home and vehicle. Our attorneys were able to show the driver was improperly trained and worked with multiple experts to achieve the settlement.

$1.075 million settlement

Our client was a pedestrian who was struck by a transit van. She sustained multiple fractures and wounds and developed other health conditions due to her injuries. 

What Evidence Is Needed To Help Increase Your Settlement?

Always take care of your health first following an accident. If you are able, there are several things you can do after the crash to start building a claim, such as:

  • Call 911 to report your accident, even if you don’t need immediate medical attention.
  • See your doctor, don’t miss any follow-up appointments, and follow your treatment plan.
  • Take pictures, videos, and notes of the accident scene and road conditions that may have contributed to your crash.
  • Collect driver information, including their employer’s name and insurance information.
  • Gather witness contact information.
  • Consult an experienced law firm.

Our Philadelphia Amazon truck accident lawyers have experience rooting out evidence others may overlook. Witness statements, police reports, medical records, and video from traffic cameras or surrounding businesses can all help bolster your claim.

Who Can I Sue if an Amazon Truck Driver Hit Me?

Several parties might be liable for an accident with an Amazon truck driver, and it is critical to identify all of them to maximize your compensation.

The Driver

Individuals may become Amazon delivery drivers through its Flex program. They drive their own vehicles and use the Amazon Flex phone app to track their activities. If the driver was negligent and caused your accident, you can pursue damages against them through an insurance claim. If their policy doesn’t cover your damages, you can file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a delivery truck accident lawyer.

The Driver's Employer

Amazon depends on a vast network of delivery service partners, or DSPs, which are local companies that deliver packages. These companies employ many of the drivers involved in Amazon truck accidents. Pennsylvania courts have ruled that under a theory of vicarious liability, employers are responsible for their employees’ actions while carrying out their job duties.

Employers may also be liable for negligence in hiring and training drivers and maintaining their fleets.

Insurance Companies

Self-employed Amazon delivery drivers must have state-mandated insurance coverage. In every state other than New York, Amazon also gives these drivers free insurance coverage up to $1 million. However, the policy only covers drivers while making deliveries, not when using the vehicles for personal reasons.

DSPs maintain their own insurance coverage on their fleets, and they must meet minimum state and Amazon requirements.

Insurance companies make money by minimizing claims or denying them altogether. Our experienced car accident lawyers in Philadelphia have a history of successful settlement negotiations and a proven track record in court. We will argue against unsatisfactory settlement offers and even take your case to court, if necessary, to fight for compensation up to policy limits.


Amazon’s lawyers have successfully argued that the company is not liable in delivery truck accidents because drivers are independent contractors, not employees. However, a recent case indicates you may have a claim against the company.

In January 2024, a South Carolina jury awarded $44.63 million to a motorcycle rider struck by an Amazon delivery van. The van’s driver had a significant history of distracted driving, which Amazon knew based on the driver’s Flex app reports. The jury determined that Amazon was grossly negligent for allowing the driver to continue delivering for it.

That verdict does not mean Amazon is liable for your accident injuries. Still, our Philadelphia truck accident lawyers will investigate that possibility to determine if you have a case against the company.
