Amazon Prime— And Amazon Prime Crashes 

They are everywhere, and everyone knows it. (The uptick smile of the Prime logo is a dead giveaway, anyway.) 

That dark blue van pulled over to the side with a line of cars trying to get past it. Couldn’t the Amazon driver find a safer place to park that truck? 

He probably could, but the driver hasn’t been trained to look for safer options, as a Amazon truck accident lawyer in Hackensack, NJ knows all too well. The driver doesn’t even need a commercial driver’s license to drive for Amazon. No wonder we are seeing more and more crashes caused by Amazon delivery drivers. 

What is causing these Amazon truck crashes?

  • Money, Money, Money. According to a Buzzfeed News/Pro Publica article, Amazon executives failed to implement higher safety standards for its van drivers due to the relentless pursuit of ever-increasing profits. 
  • Exhaustion. Amazon wants its packages delivered sooner than possible, and left on your doorstep the next day. That leaves the Amazon drivers on our roads for more and more hours. Remember, they are not to bring any packages back. Everything must be delivered.
  • Training. They are not trained by Amazon to drive our roads safely. Amazon contracts the work out to them, and then tries to hide from responsibility. That’s why Amazon doesn’t really care how badly the drivers drive. 
  • Speeding. You have seen how quickly they drive, blowing right through the posted speed limits on our highways and our residential, suburban streets. 
  • Left turns. Those left turns by Amazon vans just make our roads more dangerous.  (According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Association, left turns figure in 22.2% of crashes.) 
  • Lack of Oversight. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration does not track crashes involving the kind of smaller cargo vans that routinely make Amazon Prime deliveries. 

What should I do when an Amazon Prime truck or Amazon Prime van injures me or a loved one?

  • Call the police and make sure a police report is made. Don’t let the Amazon driver leave before the cops come. 
  • Get medical attention as soon as you can. Remember, often you don’t feel pain until a few hours or a few days later. If that happens, ask someone who can help you get medical attention. 
  • Let your car insurance company know that you were in a crash.
  • Call an experienced Amazon truck accident lawyer in Hackensack, NJ. Don’t negotiate directly with the insurance company for the Amazon driver. They will try and convince you to settle for pennies on the dollar. 
  • Cancel your Amazon membership. Let’s face it, they have it coming if they injure you.
