Food delivery services are very popular in Athens, Georgia. Some of the more common ones are GrubHub, Uber Easts and Door Dash. Also, pizza companies employ delivery drivers to deliver pizza across town. Delivery drivers typically work as independent contractors for these companies and receive little to no formal training. These drivers are also normally in a hurry to get to a location because time is money. The faster the delivery, the bigger the top and the more deliveries they can make in a day. As a result, these drivers often make careless errors and their negligent driving mistakes cause big accidents.

Who Is Liable for a Food Delivery Accident?

Athens food delivery accident lawyer

Most people’s first concern after an accident is who pay for the damage done. Georgia law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance, but the minimum coverage is $25,000 per person. Many insurance companies will not allow their insured to use their personal insurance when driving for a food delivery company and will deny coverage if there is a crash during a delivery. For this reason, we look for commercial insurance to pay for the injuries, harms and losses suffered by our client.

For example, Uber Eats will provide up to $1 million in liability coverage if the driver was fulfilling an active delivery at the time of the collision. However, if the driver was not logged into the Uber Eats app, there may just be $25,000 in liability coverage available if they don’t still try to deny coverage. For these reasons, you need an experienced attorney on your side.
