Amazon Delivery Programs in Orange County
Amazon typically guarantees quick delivery of their packages, including next-day or even same-day delivery. The company relies on various types of drivers and vehicles to get the packages where they need to go. In some cases, Amazon delivery drivers are actual employees of the company, and the trucks are owned by Amazon. However, many of the drivers who deliver packages for Amazon are known as “Amazon Flex” drivers. These drivers are independent contractors, not Amazon employees, and they use their personal vehicles to deliver packages.
There have been many reports of Amazon pressuring their delivery drivers, particularly those considered Flex drivers, to make deliveries rapidly. Because of this increased pressure, drivers are more likely to get into accidents.
Amazon Flex drivers are only required to have the minimum insurance as mandated by the state of California. Amazon does offer additional insurance, though not all drivers choose to purchase it.
Sorting through whether or not an Amazon delivery involved in an accident is an employee or an independent contractor, as well as which insurance carrier will provide coverage, is incredibly difficult for accident victims in these situations.
