Types of Food Order Deliveries
There are more and more food order delivery services each year. Restaurants are signing up for said delivery services to increase the number of customers they serve. Each company has a different insurance policy for its drivers.
Postmates or DoorDash
As stated on their website, Postmates’ policy does not come into effect unless the driver’s insurance policy does not cover the damage inflicted in the car accident. DoorDash has a similar policy. These policies also only apply if the driver has picked up the food order.
UberEats has a much more complicated insurance policy. The amount that is covered differs from each car accident. According to the UberEats website, the driver is covered whether or not they have picked up the order. However, if they have picked up the order, they are covered for more damages.
Some food delivery drivers are employed directly by restaurants, rather than through a delivery service like UberEats. In this scenario, you may need to seek compensation from the restaurant or the driver, depending on the circumstances of the accident. A lawyer can help you figure out which party may be liable for your damages.
Causes of Food Order Delivery Car Accidents
Food order delivery drivers can cause accidents for a variety of reasons. Food delivery drivers do not always have proper training. They often do not even have to go through a job interview or meet anyone in the company. With many companies, people can get started delivering food just by signing up on an app.
Food order delivery drivers are usually paid per order, not per hour. The more orders they complete, the more they get paid. They are often in a hurry to maximize their income per day. Food order delivery drivers can be involved in an accident by:
Driving Recklessly or Speeding
Delivery drivers, just like many other drivers, may drive recklessly. They could be speeding to finish their deliveries faster or trying to get more deliveries in. Drivers may not follow other traffic laws, such as yielding the right-of-way or using their turn signals.
Driving While Tired
Food orders come in at all hours of the day. Food order delivery drivers could work in the middle of the night or the middle of the day. If they are overtired, this increases the likelihood of an accident.
Food order delivery drivers often receive orders via their cell phones. They are often looking at their phones for the next order or for directions to their next locations while they are driving.
