Lake Zurich Amazon Delivery Accident Lawyer

Attorney for Amazon Vehicle Accidents in Lake County and Cook County

In the world of online shopping, Amazon has become the dominant force, changing the way we buy everything from clothes to car parts. The backbone of its delivery program is a huge fleet of vehicles on roads all across Illinois and the country, quickly bringing packages straight to people's doorsteps as soon as the very next day.

However, behind this ease lies a darker reality: There are thousands of accidents every year involving Amazon delivery vehicles. Car crashes, truck crashes, and pedestrian accidents can result in minor injuries as well as serious, life-changing injuries and even death. If you or someone you love has suffered in a crash with an Amazon truck, you owe it to yourself to find out what your options are. You may be surprised to learn that you have a strong case against Amazon, and the only way to know for sure is to speak with an Illinois personal injury attorney with Salvi Law, Inc.

Common Injuries Caused by Amazon Vehicle Accidents

Amazon delivery trucks are much larger than most other vehicles on the road. A fully loaded truck is very heavy and can hit cars, pedestrians, and property with enormous impact. Here are some injuries that can occur in accidents involving Amazon vehicles:

  • Whiplash and neck injuries - Rear-end crashes and other sudden impacts can cause severe whiplash. This can lead to neck pain, stiffness, and long-term complications.
  • Head and brain injuries - Serious accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries or skull fractures, making it hard to remember things and think straight. In some cases, mild to moderate concussions may not seem like a big deal. However, they can snowball into a serious condition, especially if they are not quickly treated.
  • Spinal cord injuries - Accidents can cause partial or total paralysis, permanently changing someone's life forever.
  • Broken bones and fractures - The force of impact can cause fractures to any number of bones in the body, such as in the arms, legs, ribs, pelvis, hip, skull, and more.
  • Internal injuries - High-speed crashes and sudden stopping can cause internal injuries, including organ damage, internal bleeding, and lung and liver injuries.
  • Soft-tissue injuries - Muscles, tendons, and ligaments can suffer damage, resulting in sprains, strains, or tears.
  • Emotional trauma - Being involved in an Amazon delivery accident can lead to emotional distress, anxiety, PTSD, and other psychological harm.

If you were in an accident with an Amazon delivery truck, you should get a thorough medical checkup. Even if you feel like you are fine, some injuries take weeks and even months to worsen or appear. Without a prompt medical checkup, you might overlook serious injuries and fail to get the money you need to pay for them.

What if Amazon Apologizes and Makes a Settlement Offer After an Accident? 

Amazon keeps stating that the company prioritizes safety and uses various means like better training, backup cameras, and other advanced tech to minimize the chance of accidents. However, accidents still occur, and no amount of apologizing or future training can take back an accident that has already happened.

Avoid speaking with insurance agents or other Amazon or insurance company employees until you have had a chance to talk to a personal injury attorney. You may accidentally give away information that could hurt your case. If you meet with Salvi Law, Inc., we will guide you throughout the case and fight to get you the best settlement possible.
