It covers any injuries suffered by victims of the accident.
In addition to liability coverage, the insurance policy also offers comprehensive and collision coverage. This coverage is contingent – the Amazon driver must carry comprehensive/collision coverage on his or her personal insurance coverage. Amazon’s coverage provides up to $50,000 in comprehensive and collision coverage for every incident with a $1,000 deductible.

Do You Really Need a Lawyer?
In some cases, filing a claim against an insurance company is straightforward. In relatively simple and straightforward cases, claimants might not even need any sort of representations. However, things are not always easy. Insurance companies can significantly complicate the legal process. This is because insurance companies do not want to pay – and they will often resort to tricks to avoid having to pay. Therefore, hiring an attorney is almost always necessary. When you hire an attorney, you are ensuring that there will be someone representing your best interests. Additionally, insurance companies are more likely to take your claim seriously and be willing to negotiate a settlement if you have competent legal representation.
Could You Be Compensated?
Are you eligible to recover monetary compensation for the harm that you suffered? Could you be compensated for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered in an incident? If the accident involving Amazon Flex caused damages, you could pursue a claim to fight for your right to recover compensation. Depending on the specific circumstances surrounding your accident, you could be compensated for all or some of the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- funeral and Burial Expenses
- Loss of Consortium
- Punitive damages
- Legal Fees
Without a doubt, you will likely be eligible to recover compensation after being involved in an Amazon Flex truck accident – regardless of whether you were the truck driver or an unaffiliated party. If you would like to learn more about the type and amount of compensation that you might receive, it is important that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible. When you contact our law firm and allow our attorneys to handle your claim, you can be certain that there will always be someone aggressively fighting for your right to receive the maximum amount of compensation available for your claim.
Understand the Statute of Limitations
Were you involved in a truck accident with an Amazon delivery truck? Whether you were the delivery driver or you were another party involved in the accident, you likely have the right to pursue a claim and fight for your right to recover compensation. However, you only have a short length of time to pursue your claim; if you do not file your claim within the appropriate length of time, you could lose your right to pursue a claim. This is because all claims are subject to a statute of limitations which determines the total time that claimants have to sue.
What deadline applies to your Amazon Flex truck accident claim? In the state of California, personal injury claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. What does this mean? Based on a two-year statute of limitations, victims of truck accidents only have two years to pursue their claims. If they do not file their claims within the two years allowed by the statute of limitations, they could lose their right to file a claim. What should you do to ensure that you preserve your right to file a claim? You must ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the specific statute of limitations that applies to your claim. Although there is a strict two-year timeline that applies to your claim, certain exceptions could apply. These exceptions could lengthen or pause the total length of time that you have to pursue your claim. If you would like to learn more about the specific statute of limitations that applies to your claim, do not hesitate to contact our law firm at your earliest convenience. Our Amazon Flex truck accident lawyers will help you file your claim on time.
