Houston Amazon Flex Delivery Accident Attorneys

Houston Amazon Flex Delivery Accident Attorneys

In an effort to cut costs and take advantage of the rideshare phenomenon, in 2015, Amazon launched a new offering – Amazon Flex. Through Amazon Flex, individuals who meet the necessary requirements can sign on to become independent contractors with the program and deliver packages from warehouses to consumers’ doors.

While Amazon Flex’s “last-mile” business model can mean faster deliveries for customers and new earning opportunities for drivers, this rideshare-delivery operation can be problematic when delivery drivers are involved in accidents.
