Types of Incidents Involving Delivery Drivers

Delivery drivers are also at risk because of the unsafe conditions they encounter while delivering goods. Slipping and tripping accidents happen frequently when delivering goods. Falling objects are dangerous. Delivery drivers should be careful when working around them. 

A slip, trip, or fall accident could result in broken bones or other injuries that require medical attention. Sprains/strains, headaches, brain injuries, neck and spine injuries, back injuries, hip injuries, pelvis fractures, knee injuries, and spinal cord injuries could occur as well. An injury from a falling object could result in crushed ribs, internal bleeding, and punctured organs.

Delivery drivers should pursue personal injury claims against the negligent party liable for the incidents. If you suffer an incident while delivering orders, do not hesitate to contact us at your earliest convenience. Our team will take care of all aspects of your claim.

What Compensation Is Available After a Food Delivery Service Car Accident?

If you were injured in a food delivery service car accident, you may be eligible to recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses associated with your injuries. In addition to these types of damages, you may be able to recover punitive damages for intentional acts or gross negligence. Punitive damages are awarded to punish negligent defendants for egregious conduct.

The Injuries Sustained in Car Accidents With A Food Delivery Driver

Injuries caused by car accidents include broken bones, cuts, bruises, lacerations, sprains, whiplash, and concussions. Crashes involving a vehicle also cause nerve damage, neck injuries, a brain injury, and chest injuries.

People who suffer from critical injuries after being involved in a DoorDash car crash may be eligible for compensation. You may also be entitled to receive medical care, rehabilitation services, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more. Our team of experienced DoorDash accident lawyers can help you get justice.

Food Delivery Service Insurance Coverage

An example of the type of insurance a food delivery service usually has is DoorDash which offers a $1 million insurance coverage to their drivers. That coverage is only available if the driver's personal auto insurance policy reaches its maximum limits. If the driver's personal auto policy doesn't cover the entire loss, then the DoorDash insurance company will pay out the difference. If you were injured by a DoorDash driver and your car was damaged, you should contact a DoorDash accident attorney to discuss how much compensation you might receive.

Delivery apps have different structures of insurance for their drivers. An Uber Eats accident could have different results than a DoorDash accident. Having a knowledgeable personal injury attorney helps you navigate the red tape involved with this case.

Who Can Sue A Food Delivery Service For A Car Accident Or Slip And Fall?

The negligent property owner for the accident must be determined before filing a suit. We work closely with our clients to determine whether they have legal grounds to hold these companies accountable for their injuries.

An example would be Doordash who has been named as a defendant in several lawsuits filed over the past few years. These suits allege that DoorDash failed to provide safe transportation for customers. Some of these cases have resulted in jury verdicts in favor of plaintiffs.
