Injured man sues Amazon after van driver crash


A 24-year-old man in Atlanta, Georgia is suing Amazon after being left with extensive brain and spinal cord injuries after an Amazon van crashed into his car. Amazon claims it isn't legally liable because the driver worked for the delivery company Harper Logistics LLC. However, the lawsuit seeks to prove that Amazon controls all aspects of deliveries from how many packages drivers are assigned to their continued employment and tracks drivers intensively, pressuring them to take risks in order to make intended delivery schedules. There are many more such complaints;  Amazon Logistics alone was a defendant in at least 119 motor vehicle injury lawsuits in the first 11 months of 2021.
