When dealing with an accident involving an Amazon vehicle, there are 4 major steps to follow.:
1. Receive Medical Attention: As in any other vehicle accident, it is important to get medical attention immediately to make sure you are taken care of and to make sure any injuries are addressed.
2. Contact An Injury Attorney: Anytime you are dealing with a car accident, it is a good practice to contact an injury attorney for a consultation. Injury attorneys will be able to give you an idea of what is coming up next in the process and some of the things you should be aware of.
3. Investigation: Once you reach out to an attorney, there will be an investigation that will need to take place. The attorney will interview witnesses and at-fault third parties. They will also review company logs and search for any other helpful information. The investigation will help understand the potential damages including medical bills, loss of wages and property damage.
4. Case Settlement: The next major step will be negotiating with Amazon’s insurance carrier and trying to get to a case settlement. Your attorney will handle this process and use their experience to negotiate the best settlement possible for your particular case. If the insurance company does not offer a settlement that you are happy with, then you can choose to litigate the case in court.
