You were injured in a car accident with a DoorDash driver. Who is responsible for paying for your medical bills and other related expenses? Unfortunately, you’re likely about to face a complex legal situation that’s not in your favor. To ensure you have the best chance of obtaining full compensation, we encourage you to contact the Pennsylvania DoorDash and Gurbhub accident lawyers at Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers right away. We’ll review your situation and explain how we can protect your rights.
DoorDash is a convenience food delivery app. The company affords its drivers different protections than Grubhub in the event of a crash. That means a different legal situation arises if someone sustains injuries in a crash with a DoorDash driver.
Does DoorDash Cover Its Drivers?
DoorDash drivers must be 18 years of age or older and have a record without a DUI, reckless driving, and other major violations in the last seven years. They require drivers to have fewer than three incidents in the past three years. DoorDash also runs a criminal background check on potential drivers.
Unlike Grubhub drivers, DoorDash has insurance coverage for its “dashers.” DoorDash provides drivers with commercial auto insurance that covers up to $1 million in bodily injury and/or property damage to third parties arising out of accidents while making a DoorDash delivery in the U.S. However, those who sustain injuries in a crash involving DoorDash will not necessarily have an easy time obtaining full compensation. Our seasoned accident attorneys can support you while seeking compensation from the at-fault DoorDash driver.
Does Grubhub Cover Its Drivers’ Insurance?
Grubhub touts its business as lucrative, popular, and convenient. The company gives drivers competitive pay and allows them to keep all their tips. Drivers can work when they want, and they have access to more orders than similar delivery platforms. The requirements to be a Grubhub driver are as follows:
- Be at least 19 years old (at least 21+ in Chicago)
- Have a valid driver’s license, auto insurance and at least two years of driving experience
- Own a smartphone with the minimum required operating system
- Pass a background check and have a checking account
Drivers who meet the requirements can become independent Grubhub contractors. However, because of their business model, Grubhub does not have a legal responsibility to cover its drivers with commercial auto insurance. So, if a Grubhub driver causes a crash, his or her personal insurance coverage will likely need to pay for the harm done. As you can imagine, the insurance company will probably try to avoid giving full compensation. If you’re in this situation, our Grubhub accident attorneys can help.
