Amazon is the world's largest online marketplace. It has recently expanded its delivery service by offering free two-day delivery through its Prime service. There are approximately 40,000 Amazon prime trucks delivering products to US residents. The more amazon trucks there are on the road, the greater the chances we all are of being the victim of a truck accident. If you have been injured in an accident by an Amazon truck driver in Florida, we can help you to receive compensation from Amazon's commercial auto insurance policy to help pay for your medical bills and pain and suffering.

What are the common causes of Amazon accidents?
Amazon truck drivers often work long hours. The more hours a truck driver works, the greater the chance he or she will be tired when driving. A drowsy driver is just as dangerous to the public as a drunk driver. Here are some of the other causes of accidents.
- Distracted Driving: Anyone using their cellphone to text while driving is putting other drivers and passengers at risk of being injured.
- Breaking Traffic Laws: Swerving, Improper Lane Change, Failure to Yield and Speeding are some of the common traffic infractions by drivers.
- DUI: We hope that the amazon driver who hit you was not drunk, but if they were, then you have a claim for punitive damages against the driver. Punitive damages are designed to punish the driver for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Does Amazon insure Amazon Flex drivers?
Amazon provides free insurance coverage for its Flex drivers. The insurance policy provides substantial liability coverage in the form of $1 million in bodily injury liability coverage to others if you were hit by an Amazon truck driver. An Amazon truck driver who is not at fault in the accident is insured by up to $1 million for personal injuries and property damage insurance.
How much money can I receive if I have been injured by an Amazon delivery driver?
The amount of money that you can expect to receive from an accident depends on the seriousness of your bodily injuries. For example, you can expect to receive more money if you need to have surgery to repair a herniated disc than if you are only suffering from scrapes and minor bruising.
Does the Amazon coverage depend on the driver's status?
The insurance coverage only applies to Flex drivers who are driving to deliver, return or pick up packages for Amazon. The Amazon driver's personal auto insurance coverage can be used by an injured driver or passenger if the Flex driver was not working at the time of the accident.
