Pizza Delivery Driver Accident
Food delivery services are becoming more and more popular in the country. Though the growing number of food delivery companies are a blessing for consumers as they are so convenient. But with this convenience comes the risk of having so many delivery vehicles on the road, whereby increasing the likelihood of accidents. Pizzas are the most popular on the ordering menu for delivery at home. The pizza companies promise quick deliveries of hot pizzas at your doorstep. The pizza delivery drivers are under pressure to deliver on time, and hence they over speed and may drive rashly to reach their destination, resulting in a spike in the number of cases of pizza delivery driver accidents. If you or your family member has been injured in a pizza delivery driver accident, you need to contact an experienced food delivery accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Liability in case of a Pizza Delivery Driver Accident:
In most cases, Pizza delivery drivers are independent contractors, they are not employees of the Pizza Company. Pizza companies, like Pizza Hut or Domino’s do not cover the delivery drivers under their insurance plans. Delivery drivers are responsible to take their own coverage and pay for it. This makes the case complicated. Most of the personal insurance policies do not cover car accidents which occurred while the car was being used for business purpose. For example delivering pizza. Such drivers who are running vehicles for business purpose are required to take special commercial insurance, which the pizza delivery companies fail to inform them.
If you have been involved in a pizza delivery driver accident, you need to understand that you can hold the pizza company liable. The delivery drivers would be held liable and accountable for any damages. However if you are able to prove that the driver is an employee of the pizza company, you can hold the pizza company liable and file for compensation from them.
