Amazon Flex Delivery Accident Attorneys In Oxford
Amazon Flex drivers operating in Oxford, Ohio, and elsewhere are private contractors, so when they get in an accident, liability issues can be tricky. These contracted drivers normally deliver packages to Amazon customers in blocks of hours that they have selected themselves. When they are “on the clock,” they have insurance backing with Amazon, or at least they should. However, if they are off the clock, they are once again driving as private individuals, even if they are on the road in between Amazon delivery assignments.
The challenge for someone who has been injured in a crash involving an Amazon Flex driver’s vehicle is to determine the extent of the driver’s and the company’s responsibility or liability. Other people may also be responsible, such as a driver of another car or a government body that maintains signage and roads.
An experienced motor vehicle accident attorney has the task of discovering who should compensate a person who was injured in such a crash. At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima in Oxford, Ohio, our attorneys take on this challenge with skill and determination.
Our Oxford Lawyers Will Stand For Your Rights
Plenty of Miami University students and other residents of Oxford take advantage of easy delivery of goods purchased through Amazon. Depending on business decisions by Amazon, drivers may be professional drivers of Amazon’s delivery trucks or they may be private contractors fulfilling toe Amazon Flex roles. These drivers may have very limited training or oversight.
When all goes well, the low labor costs of Amazon Flex drivers help keep costs down. But when there is an accident, an injured person may be left in a lurch while trying to recover compensation. We do not recommend that you try on your own to get compensation after suffering injuries in an Amazon Flex accident. You may be tempted to accept a quick settlement that is not in your best interests.
