The experience of being hit by a food delivery driver, whether you are a pedestrian walking along the sidewalk or a fellow motorist driving your car, can be highly stressful, expensive, and potentially injurious. Being hit by a food delivery driver means that you have been hit by someone representing a company, which can make the financial recovery process more complicated.
Below, learn more about what you should do if you are hit by a food delivery driver and the steps to take to make the most of any damages and compensation you are entitled to. A ride app attorney from Ride App Law Group, LLP is here to answer any questions you might have about your case.
If you have been in an accident with a driver who was to blame, you should be able to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses. The insurance claim process can be complicated, however, if the driver was working as a rideshare food delivery driver at the time of the crash.
Companies like UberEats or DoorDash are classified as TNCs by the government (or transportation network companies). Under the law, the corporation’s own insurance coverage comes into play in certain situations – but not all. There has also been growing attention in the courts concerning the liability of the TNCs for accidents caused by drivers. In any event, be prepared for the process to be more complex than it would be following a regular car crash.
After being in any accident with a motor vehicle, it is recommended that you immediately call the police to report to the scene. When they arrive, request that they create a report. The police will then collect the essential information from the drivers involved, as well as any statements from witnesses who are present on the scene. Most importantly, the police check on the status of the drivers involved in the accident to determine if they violated any traffic regulations or criminal laws.
Then, get the medical attention you need for your injuries. If you feel anything out of the ordinary – pain, disorientation – go to the emergency room. You want to start treatment right away for the best prognosis, as well as get documentation of all your injuries to use in your claim.
Finally, you should speak with a rideshare accident lawyer. There is no need for you to figure out the complex process of filing rideshare accident claims, as our attorneys will handle the entire matter for you.
