Amazon Flex is a driving job, but like all driving jobs, the risk of injuries is high. Not only do you have to compete with individuals on the road, but you also have to worry about getting hurt from the packages you pick up. If you were hurt in such an accident, you may be able to take legal action. Contact the Downtown LA Law Group for more help with an Amazon Flex package delivery accident.What is Amazon Flex?
Amazon Flex is a service provided by Amazon that allows individuals to deliver packages from Amazon facilities and warehouses to customers. These drivers work in blocks and can schedule their own availability, and then take whatever blocks are offered to them within their time frames. It is another form of working in the gig economy, as many companies have embraced having individuals do their driving for them as opposed to hiring full-time workers.
Amazon Flex drivers often need to carry packages, meals, boxes, and more in their vehicles. Some drivers do not have large enough cars that can accommodate all of these packages at once.
Those who drive must carry their own personal auto insurance, but Amazon does provide coverage. This coverage includes:
You should be aware of the insurance coverage you’re given. You are only covered when you have the app on or you’re making a delivery. If not, your personal policy is in effect.Injuries from Amazon Flex Accidents
You can suffer a fair amount of injuries if you were involved in an accident while driving for Amazon Flex. The fact that there are so many packages in the vehicles means that your vision may be obscured and lead to accidents. Similarly, the packages could hit you while you are driving. Some of the injuries may linger for months after the crash, especially if you did not get medical assistance immediately after. The adrenaline and shock that comes from accidents can often mask the true extent of injuries, which is why many individuals do not notice the damages until days afterward. Injuries that you can sustain in these incidents include the following:
Of course, the most severe injuries are likely only in serious car accidents. If you are merely struck by packages in your car, your damages may be much less affecting. It is crucial that you still have a safe environment within your car and that you abide by all traffic laws while driving. Defensive driving will also help keep you out of accidents.
Amazon Flex drivers generally work according to specific blocks and schedules. Therefore, it is likely that you can get hurt while following Amazon’s orders; if they are short staffed, you may be requested to bring additional packages. These dangers can contribute to accidents.
