GrubHub Car Accident Lawsuits

Food delivery has been around for many years, with drivers employed directly by the restaurants to take food to customers' homes. However, not all restaurants offered delivery services, and it was frequently limited to pizza or Chinese restaurants. Today many food delivery companies, such as GrubHub, utilize independent drivers to pick up food from a variety of restaurants and deliver it to local customers.

This concept saves many restaurants money but also increases the risk of car accidents. As more and more individuals drive for food delivery companies, like GrubHub, how they treat these accidents can be confusing, leaving many victims not to receive the compensation they deserve. It has become more critical to seek the guidance of an attorney with experience in GrubHub accident injury lawsuits to help explain the procedure following these accidents.

Who Can Be Held Liable For a GrubHub Accident? 

Unlike many other food delivery companies in today's gig economy, GrubHub does not offer auto insurance coverage for its contracted drivers. This can lead to much confusion when the GrubHub driver is found to be at fault for an auto accident. However, an experienced attorney will understand that despite the efforts of the company to deny liability, they could still be held liable in a GrubHub injury lawsuit. 

Can I Sue GrubHub For an Auto Accident?

Essentially, injured victims can sue Grubhub directly if they are found to be negligent. This would include negligence during the hiring process, such as the driver having a history of reckless driving or was driving illegally. However, laws have regulated that the company must provide coverage for other parties in the event of accidents at the fault of their drivers.

Causes of GrubHub Crashes?

Drivers often rush to get to each delivery within a minimal timeframe to ensure they are delivered on time, but also to take additional orders. When they are paid per order, they will feel pressed to take on as many as possible to increase their profit for the day. This rushing can lead to bad driving decisions, such as speeding or running stop signs. This puts other drivers at risk when they share the road. Other Grubhub accidents can be attributed to the following:

  • Tailgating
  • Failure to signal
  • Failure to yield
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving while tired
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Adverse weather

How Much Is a Grubhub Settlement?

Every incident is unique, making each delivery food accident settlement vary depending on the factors involved. Victims should also be aware of the statute of limitations dictating how long they have to file a claim after the accident. It is important to contact an experienced GrubHub accident injury attorney right away to ensure the maximum compensation is paid out.
