Who Is Liable in a Delivery Driver Accident?
There are multiple scenarios in which a FedEx, Amazon, Flex, or other delivery driver accident can occur. The driver may have been in a clearly marked delivery vehicle, or they may have been operating their personal, unmarked vehicle to perform deliveries at the time of the accident. There may have been other cars involved in the accident as well.
As long as the delivery driver was at fault, you may be eligible for compensation. Delivery corporations and insurance companies will often try to shirk responsibility for an accident by claiming that the driver is an independent contractor rather than an employee. The process of determining liability may be further complicated by the fact that there are usually several insurance companies involved in the claims process, including the delivery driver’s personal policy, the delivery company’s corporate policy, and your own insurance policy.
Ultimately, the delivery company will likely bear some level of responsibility for the accident, regardless of the delivery driver’s employment classification. An accomplished delivery driver accident attorney can skillfully manage the process of determining liability so you don’t have to.
