Amazon Accident Lawyer
Amazon is a household name, and it is continuously expanding. Now, it is getting into the autonomous vehicle market. Amazon may not be building their own driverless cars, but they are helping other companies do just that. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is helping companies, including BMW, Lyft, Uber, Audi, and TuSimple, by creating and offering the cloud-based platforms necessary to design and produce self-driving cars. AWS offers platforms with both simple and complex functions, like chatbots, marketing, data collection, reinforcement learning, simulation, and location-based functions.

As more automakers and tech companies build, test, and sell driverless or semi-autonomous cars and trucks, the risk of being in a crash with one increases. If you were involved in a collision and discover that the other vehicle was driving itself, call an Amazon accident attorney right away.
To begin with, you need there to be an in-depth accident regarding who is at fault. The vehicle company will certainly look into the crash because it is interested in having both a low crash rate and a low rate of fault and liability. You should never rely fully on the vehicle manufacturer’s investigation and findings. Instead, you should work with a lawyer who will independently gather and review evidence. This typically requires filing a personal injury lawsuit so that your attorney can utilize the discovery process. Through requests for documents, interrogatories, and depositions, your attorney can gather evidence that is under the business’s control.
If evidence indicates the self-driving car was fully or partly responsible for the collision, the next step is to determine what went wrong and why. Because of the complexity and high-tech nature of self-driving cars, this can be challenging. It could be a hardware or software defect, and depending on the problem, and different business may be responsible.
If we determine an AWS platform was flawed or malfunctioned, leading to the crash, then we may pursue compensation for your injuries from Amazon. Our car accident lawyers for Amazon are not afraid to pursue the full worth of your claim through an insurance claim or lawsuit.Amazon Flex Delivery Accidents
There is another way in which Amazon may be involved in your car crash. Through the Amazon Flex program, anyone with a valid driver’s license can use their personal vehicle to deliver Amazon packages. After a crash, you may discover that the other driver was a Flex driver and was working at the time. This creates a complicated insurance issue. The Flex driver may be at fault, but are they liable for your injuries?
If the Amazon Flex driver was a typical delivery driver who was employed by Amazon, it may be clear that Amazon was liable for your injuries since they would be liable for the actions of their on-duty employees. However, a Flex driver is not a typical employee, and Amazon may deny their liability.
