At least 10 people have died from Amazon delivery related accidents since 2015, according to a new blockbuster investigation from The New York Times and ProPublica.
The investigation sheds light on Amazon’s network of contract delivery drivers, which are enlisted to help fulfill its speedy shipping promises but from which Amazon sheds all responsibility from when a crisis occurs. This follows a separate piece published earlier in the week by Buzzfeed, which so looks at how Amazon’s decentralized delivery system is bringing “chaos and carnage” to America’s streets.
According to court cases reviewed by The Times/ProPublica, people injured in crashes and drivers in wage disputes have argued that Amazon retains so much control that it effectively is the drivers’ employer. But Amazon said that it bears no legal responsibility for these drivers, which are hired and fired by the individual contracting firms.
