San Antonio Amazon Accident Attorney
Helping Victims of Crashes with Amazon Delivery Drivers Obtain Just Compensation
Have you or someone you love been injured in an accident with an Amazon delivery vehicle? The Law Office of George P. Escobedo & Associates, PLLC can help you fight for just compensation. Our San Antonio Amazon accident lawyers understand how complex cases involving a large, third-party commercial entity can be and how to navigate the potential challenges to ensure you are set up to receive the compensation you need to cover your accident-related expenses.
What to Do If You’ve Been in an Accident with an Amazon Driver
It may surprise you to learn that the majority of the vehicles that deliver for Amazon are owned and operated by delivery contractors. This is because there are both Amazon-owned delivery truck drivers as well as independent contractors who drive their own vehicles to deliver packages under the Amazon Flex program.
Amazon Flex functions much like a ridesharing service like Lyft or Uber—except instead of transporting people, Flex drivers transport packages.
Also like Uber and Lyft, an individual who drives for Amazon Flex can only receive insurance coverage from Amazon if they were working at the time of the crash. If you were involved in an accident with a Flex driver while they weren’t on duty, you would most likely have to file a traditional car accident claim against their personal insurer instead.
In addition to drivers’ personal auto insurance coverage, Amazon provides their delivery partners with an Amazon Commercial Auto Insurance Policy at no cost.
This insurance policy includes:
- Auto liability coverage,
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage
- Contingent comprehensive and collision coverage.
However, this insurance policy applies only to Amazon Flex delivery drivers who maintain their own personal auto insurance on their vehicle who are actively delivering packages at the time of the accident. The policy does not cover passengers (delivery drivers are supposed to drive alone) and anyone other than the Amazon Flex delivery partner. If someone else is driving when an accident occurs, the claim for any incurred losses will be denied.
This means that if you were hurt in an accident caused by an Amazon delivery driver, there are many steps both you and the driver must go through before Amazon will provide coverage. Our San Antonio Amazon accident lawyers can help you navigate these steps to set you up for success.
Why File a Claim?

As a major corporation and household name, it can be very intimidating going up against Amazon if you have been wrongfully injured by one of their drivers. We can help.
Our compassionate, caring, and talented auto accident attorneys at The Law Office of George P. Escobedo & Associates, PLLC, are here to assist you if you or a loved one have been injured by an Amazon delivery driver. We offer a free initial consultation, and we handle all injury cases on a contingency fee basis—meaning you owe us no legal fees unless we win.
How Do I Know If I Have a Claim?
Whether you have a valid claim is based primarily on a determination of fault and legal liability. Your claim to recover fair compensation for your injuries will hinge on the premise that the negligence or reckless act of another party caused the accident, resulting in damages.
At The Law Office of George P. Escobedo & Associates, PLLC, we thoroughly investigate and analyze your case, gather evidence, and present your claim to establish who was at fault and why as well as value your claim based on the long-term impact on your life. Many auto accident cases are settled out of court through negotiations, but our seasoned trial attorneys can take a case to a jury for a decision if that is what it takes to make it right. We are even willing to go up against Amazon on your behalf should it prove necessary.
Through our investigation, which can involve medical and financial experts, we can calculate past, present, and future losses from your case. These losses can include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Diminished earning capacity
