Bellevue Amazon Delivery Accident Lawyers

Representing Bellevue Amazon Accident Victims

Bellevue is only about 20 minutes from Nebraska’s biggest city, linked by the Kennedy Freeway. With a population estimated at 63,015 as of July 1, 2022, it is a respectable city in its own right. Of the households in Bellevue, 95.7% have computers, and 91.4% have an internet subscription, as reported by the U.S. Census. Bellevue, like the rest of the country, has experienced an increase in online shopping in recent years. As Amazon is the leading online retailer in the country, this means more Amazon delivery trucks and vans in Bellevue and more crashes involving Amazon vehicles.

How Big Is Amazon and How Many Packages Does It Deliver?

Very few people in America do not know about Amazon. With beginnings as a bookseller, the company now centers its business around simplifying online transactions for customers. As of 2022, it is worth more than $1.105 trillion, as reported on Investing.com. The company has 300 million active users and receives 2.2 billion visits per month. Amazon owns nearly 50% of the U.S. e-commerce market and hired 270,000 new employees in 2021 to help provide its same-day and one-day delivery services. Globally, the company shipped an estimated 7.7 billion packages in 2021, as reported by the University of Washington.

What Factors Contribute to Amazon Accidents?

One factor contributing to Amazon’s accidents is the sheer number of Amazon delivery trucks and vans on the road. To meet customer expectations, the company puts immense pressure on its drivers to work long hours and make tight delivery deadlines. This can result in fatigued driving, speeding, and other unsafe behaviors that can put others on the road at risk. Common causes of crashes involving Amazon delivery trucks and vans include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driver fatigue
  • Improperly trained drivers
  • Impaired driving
  • Unsafe merging
  • Unevenly distributed cargo

What Are Amazon’s Policies on Auto Accidents and Insurance?

For Flex drivers who make deliveries using their personal vehicles, Amazon provides up to $1 million in liability insurance coverage for bodily injury and property damage. However, this is not the case for Amazon delivery trucks and vans. The company works with a large network of third-party shipping and delivery companies that are required to provide auto insurance for every vehicle. Although Amazon has a commercial auto insurance program for delivery service providers, they are free to obtain coverage elsewhere and often do. The company denies liability for accidents caused by delivery drivers who are not technically Amazon employees.
