Drivers for food delivery companies such as Postmates, Uber Eats, DoorDash, or Grubhub are prone to drive more carelessly than typical drivers in order to make as many deliveries as possible to maximize their earnings.
They are more likely to speed, neglect right-of-way laws, make reckless lane changes, amongst other dangerous actions that can lead to devastating accidents. Food delivery drivers may also operate their vehicle while they are tired from long working hours, and some maybe be on their phones looking up addresses.
If you are involved in an accident with a Postmates or Uber Eats driver, you should contact a Postmates accident injury lawyer or Uber Eats accident injury lawyer right away to handle your case.
Different Food Delivery Accident Insurance Policies
The insurance policies for companies like Postmates, Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Grubhub vary in what damages the companies will or will not cover in food delivery related accidents.
Some companies, like DoorDash and Postmates, provide excess liability coverage , but this coverage is only applicable to third parties and only comes into play after the delivery driver’s personal auto insurance coverage has been exhausted.
Other companies like Uber Eats work a bit differently in that food delivery company’s coverage applies based on whether the driver was logged into the app, is in between deliveries, or has accepted the request and picking up or delivering the food.
If you work for a food delivery service and you are driving a personal vehicle for work purposes, it is important to note that some of these companies do not provide collision coverage, and others do not provide coverage for accidents involving uninsured/underinsured drivers. Therefore it is imperative to make sure you are covered by a personal auto insurance policy while you are making food deliveries.
