Getting injured in a motor vehicle accident is challenging enough, but several more complications may arise if you are on the job. Countless Amazon delivery drivers roam Georgia’s streets and highways daily, increasing the risk of accidents. After an accident, many Amazon drivers are unsure whether they qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. However, the answer depends largely on their employment status. Workers’ compensation may cover your injuries and other losses if you work directly for Amazon. The laws surrounding these cases can be complex, making it critical to have an experienced Hasner Law attorney on your side. 

If you were injured in an Amazon delivery driving accident, Hasner Law is here to help. Our attorneys have over a century of combined experience helping accident victims recover the benefits they deserve for their injuries. We understand the intricacies of Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws and are ready to apply our wealth of experience to your unique case. When you partner with us, you can have peace of mind that a seasoned legal professional is handling your case. 

Can I File a Workers’ Compensation Claim After Suffering an Injury as an Amazon Delivery Driver?

If Amazon directly employs you, you should qualify for workers’ compensation. Under Georgia law, employers with three or more employees must provide workers’ compensation benefits. However, Amazon also employs many contract delivery drivers through its Delivery Service Partner Program. If you are a Delivery Service Partner (DSP), you would not be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits from Amazon. However, you may be eligible for benefits through your direct employer. 

Those injured in delivery driving accidents may also have grounds to file a personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. If another driver’s negligence contributed to your accident, you may be able to sue them for your physical, emotional, and financial losses. A Hasner Law attorney can review the details of your case to determine the best path forward to recover benefits. 

Steps to Take to Protect Your Rights After an Accident

Following a delivery truck accident, there are several steps you can take to protect your rights and safety, including the following:

  • Seek medical attention: Getting a proper diagnosis is integral to your health and can help prove your injuries. Some injuries may not present symptoms until days or months after the accident, making seeking treatment as soon as possible essential.
  • Report the accident: To file a workers’ compensation claim, you must notify your employer of the incident within 30 days of being injured. If you do not meet this deadline, you may forfeit your right to benefits. 
  • Obtain evidence: Photos, medical records, and police reports can all help establish what happened as well as the injuries you suffered. 

Finally, be sure to contact a skilled Hasner Law attorney. We can evaluate your case, help you determine the best path forward, and file all paperwork on your behalf.
