Nearly all of these products require delivery. Amazon uses UPS, FedEx and DHL as well as other delivery partners. Increasingly Amazon is attempting to reduce costs and increase profits by using alternative delivery options. Those alternatives include Amazon Logistics where they lease or own planes, ships or trucks which are operated by Amazon employees. The larger the scope of products, services and clientele that Amazon takes on, the greater the risk they assume in the possibility of an injury occurring.
Another avenue for delivery is Amazon Flex drivers who are independent contractors. One of the targets for the Amazon Flex Program are Uber, Lyft or UberEATS drivers who want to otherwise supplement their income by making deliveries for Amazon. The difference between fully employed drivers and part time drivers of this nature, is the potential for lesser quality or skill from their drivers. This could result in greater risk for the consumers they deliver to or even other drivers on the road.South Florida Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Victims of Amazon Negligence
