LOS ANGELES, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The tragic loss of a 10-year-old boy in Lafayette on Tuesday, July 28 [th] , 2020, has sparked concern regarding the safety of delivery vans on US roads. The JT Legal Group, personal injury law firm in Glendale, California, notices that this latest loss of life, involving an Amazon delivery truck, is not isolated – it is the latest in a spate of accidents involving the billion-dollar company's delivery vehicles.
The JT Legal Group seeks to heighten awareness surrounding the safety of delivery trucks associated with Amazon Prime, FedEx, UPS, since these have been involved in numerous accidents where victims have lost their lives or have sustained severe injuries. These accidents are often linked to negligence. Victims of delivery truck related accidents should know that necessary action can be taken to help them get compensation for their losses after tragic events like these.
In Lafayette, the delivery truck driver was released without citation and found not to be a paid contractor. Amazon has come under major scrutiny in the last few years regarding its contract delivery operations.
"The damages, if any, were caused, in whole or in part, by third parties not under the direction of control of Amazon.com," stated the company's lawyers in a court filing, following the death of 84-year-old Telesfora Escamilla, victim of an Amazon delivery truck in Chicago. As Amazon uses contractors for their delivery operations, the company uses legal loopholes to avoid responsibility.
With Amazon now deploying larger UPS and FedEx-style delivery trucks, the JT Legal Group understands that there are higher risks to the lives of pedestrians and other drivers on the roads of California and the wider United States. JT Legal Group hopes that companies, like Amazon, can be held responsible for injuries or loss of life.
