Weston Amazon Truck Accident Attorneys
Helping You Get Better After Somebody Hurt You in an Amazon Truck
Amazon has built a monumental product distribution business. In fact, the company ships millions of packages every week.
Amazon drivers are often rushing around to deliver packages, and to meet deadlines.
Even though the driver may be wearing an Amazon uniform and it says Amazon right on the truck, many Amazon drivers are actually employed by third-party contractors. That’s a pretty clever maneuver that Amazon uses to attempt to evade responsibility when accidents occur.
If you were harmed by a careless delivery driver, contact a Weston, FL truck accident lawyer at Justin Morgan Law. We’ve been protecting people in Florida from unsafe drivers for over 20 years.
We don’t care how big they are. If somebody hurts you, we’ll file a claim / lawsuit to get the money you need to cover the costs of your medical bills and other expenses such as time missed from work.

Working 14 Hours Without a Break
Even though most Amazon deliveries are carried out by drivers who aren’t on the company payroll, all drivers are required to use the Amazon delivery app. The drivers are typically recruited by the company, and Amazon often uses cameras to monitor every move they make.
Amazon drivers can often be overworked and exhausted. According to an article in The Guardian, Amazon drivers commonly work 14-hour days without being given a bathroom break.
What Causes Amazon Driver Accidents?
To keep everyone along the roadway safe, delivery companies must hire safe drivers and give them the necessary training. When drivers are rushed, inexperienced, overworked, and fatigued, they’re a lot more likely to crash into unsuspecting motorists, motorcycle riders, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Factors that contribute to delivery driver accidents include:
- Negligent hiring
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Insufficient training
- Driver evaluations based on the number of deliveries completed
Injures Caused by Amazon Drivers
An unloaded Amazon delivery van can way many tons, and these vehicles are a lot heavier when they’re full of packages. They can do a lot of damage if they collide with a regular passenger car.
Injuries caused by delivery drivers may include:
- Bone fractures
- Internal bleeding
- Crush injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Wrongful Death

If you or a loved one was harmed by a negligent Amazon or delivery driver, our team will find the best strategy to get you justice.
Our investigation will include, but is not limited to, examining the police report, requesting any police body worn camera/audio evidence from the accident scene, and if applicable, interview witnesses to find out how the crash occurred.
