Amazon has transformed the way we shop, offering unparalleled convenience and speedy deliveries through its vast network of Prime delivery trucks. While this has changed the retail industry, it has also raised concerns about road safety as drivers must adhere to tight delivery schedules, inexperienced and untrained drivers, increasing the likelihood of an accident.
However, determining who is liable for your injuries is challenging if you were injured in an Amazon delivery truck accident, considering that Amazon claims drivers are not Amazon employees, Amazon like other rideshare companies attempt to avoid responsibility for the negligence of their drivers. Merely because Amazon and other “gig economy”, rideshare, and food delivery app companies claim their drivers are not employees, does not make it so. The laws that apply to these companies convincingly establish that they are, in fact, employees.
However, to prove this you will need to retain a San Diego Amazon delivery truck accident attorney that knows how to hold these companies liable for your injuries. Speak with the experienced legal team at Jassim Law to understand your legal options.
