Amazon started in 1994 as a marketplace for books. Today it is one of the largest online marketplaces for all types of books and services. Amazon has ventured into entertainment with Amazon Prime Video, and Amazon Fresh through their partnership with Whole Foods Market.

If you are in an Amazon delivery accident, you may be surprised to find that getting compensation may not be as straightforward as you would like. To meet the demand for their services, Amazon has several programs in partnership with business owners and independent contractors.

It is best to have a knowledgeable Denver delivery accident attorney by your side to help you get the compensation you deserve. The attorneys at Fuicelli & Lee can help you.

Amazon Delivery Services and Other Contract Companies
Amazon has different delivery programs to facilitate service delivery to their customers. There are:
Amazon Delivery Service Partners (DSP)
These are independent contractors who provide service in vehicles provided by Amazon. Although they provide their service in Amazon-branded vehicles and receive benefits and compensation from Amazon, they are not employees of Amazon.
Amazon Flex Drivers
Amazon Flex drivers use their own vehicles to make deliveries on behalf of Amazon. The program requires that drivers have a 4-door, midsize sedan or larger vehicle like an SUV or van. Because Flex drivers typically use their personal vehicles for delivery service, Amazon requires every delivery partner to maintain additional insurance to cover their vehicle for commercial use.
Flex drivers in Colorado are also covered by Amazon’s Commercial Auto Insurance Policy when they are delivering goods for Amazon. This policy includes:
- Auto liability coverage
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage
- Contingent comprehensive and collision coverage
Minimum Vehicle Insurance Requirements in Colorado
In Colorado, the minimum requirements for vehicle insurance are as follows:
- $25,000 for each person injured in an accident
- $50,000 for all people injured in an accident
- $15,000 for all property damaged in an accident
These minimums may not be adequate for commercial use of the vehicle and may cause difficulty for any person injured while the vehicle is in use for deliveries.
Colorado also encourages insurance companies to offer uninsured or underinsured vehicle insurance coverage to cover innocent injured victims when the at-fault driver is either uninsured or underinsured.
At-Fault Vehicle Insurance in Colorado
Generally, the person at fault in a vehicle accident is responsible for the damages caused in the accident. Trying to establish fault can be a long, drawn out process as each party involved in the accident tries to avoid liability. In recognition of the difficulty faced by victims of car accidents, some states have instituted a no-fault system of vehicle insurance. Where this is the case, proving which party was at fault makes no difference in whether their damages are covered or not.
Colorado is not one of those states. Colorado is still an at-fault vehicle insurance state where an accident victim must prove fault in order to get compensation for the damages suffered. As you can imagine, there is bound to be a lot of finger-pointing to avoid liability and shift the fault to you. An experienced Denver delivery accident attorney knows the law and understands the various tactics that insurance companies use to avoid liability. Whether your case will end in a settlement or proceed to court, it is best to have an experienced, knowledgeable delivery accident attorney working to protect your interests. They can stand up to the attorneys of the big corporations on your behalf.
How Much Compensation Can I Get?
When a person is injured because of the negligent actions of another person, they may be entitled to both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover losses that are quantifiable and can be supported with bills, invoices, and other such documentation. Economic damages include past and future medical bills, loss of income, and property damage.
Non-economic damages cover non-monetary losses suffered as a result of the accident. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional stress, and impairment of quality of life. In Colorado, recovery for noneconomic losses is capped at $500,000.
How Much Will a Denver Amazon Delivery Accident Attorney Cost?
Understandably, injured victims in a car accident have concerns about the cost of hiring a delivery accident attorney. They are afraid that they will not be able to afford an attorney to represent them. When you are injured in an Amazon delivery accident, you will be going up against big corporations like Amazon and the insurance companies. They will have their attorneys protecting their interests and trying to limit their liability to you. You deserve to have your own attorney to ensure that your interests are protected and you get the full and fair compensation you deserve.
We offer all our clients our No Fee Promise, which means that we only get paid if you receive a settlement or verdict on your case. Our fees are paid as a percentage of the money we help you recover, after the case is settled. We also offer free initial consultations to help you determine if you have a case.
