Conyers Food Delivery Accident LawyerRequest Free Consultation
Many Conyers residents use food delivery services like Grubhub, Door Dash, Postmates, and Uber Eats on a regular basis. Pizza businesses, such as Dominos, Papa John’s and Pizza Hut also deliver food around Rockdale County. These companies rely on independent drivers to complete these deliveries, usually driving their own private vehicles. These drivers are also normally in a hurry to get to a location because time is money. The faster the delivery, the bigger the tip 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.

Common Causes of Athens Food Delivery Accidents

Who is Liable for a Food Delivery Accident?
Most people’s first concern after an accident is who will pay for the damage done. Georgia law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance, but the minimum coverage is $25,000 per 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 mostly have to 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. Don’t try to handle this claim on your own. You have too much to lose.
