Los Angeles is a big city and has lots of great places to eat. But sometimes you just want to stay home and have it delivered. GrubHub is one of many food delivery services where you can log onto their app and place an order and your food will be at your door in no time at all.

The problem here isn’t for the customer who gets to stay off the streets that night and have food brought to them, it’s for those still out there trying to get home, go shopping or go to a friend’s. All of these additional vehicles out on the streets of LA put motorists and pedestrians at risk.

Hot Food, More Accidents

It takes a bit of time to get around LA during dinner time, and no one likes cold fries. Not only that, but delivery drivers also can’t make money by driving slow. They need to be quick and get you your food quicker. This puts everyone at risk, and if you’re out on the road with your family, it shouldn’t be your problem that GrubHub drivers have been incentivized to drive fast and run red lights.

Who Pays When I get Injured by a GrubHub Driver?

You would think it would be GrubHub that is responsible, but that’s not always the case. They hire independent contractors and use the ride-share model for deliveries. Each driver is required to have their own insurance for those times when they don’t have food to deliver.

If they are actively delivering food, then GrubHub might be held responsible, but it can be tricky. In those cases, GrubHub has deep pockets to pay for the damages. If the liability falls on the driver then the driver might have only the California required a minimum of $15,000 bodily injury and $30,000 for all bodily injuries for the accident. This may not be enough to cover your losses.

Grub Hug Damages

If you are put out of commission by a GrubHub driver, you might be missing time from work, have a long recovery ahead of you, or face permanent injuries that are going to affect your future. In California, if someone injures you because they were careless, then the law requires them to pay you for all of your medical bills and other related financial losses.

At the Law Offices of Steers & Associates, we have extensive experience with the personal injury laws and understand just what the driver will be required to pay if you are injured. It’s important to hire an attorney who knows what claims to make and what is allowed by law.

In California, if GrubHub negligently injures you, then the following are some of the types of damages that the law might require them to pay:

  • Medical Bills
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Lost Time from Work
  • Future Reduced Wages
  • Permanent Disability
  • Permanent Disfigurement
  • Loss of Quality of Life
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Mental Anguish

If you’ve been injured by a GrubHub driver, don’t go it alone. Whether it’s GrubHub’s attorneys or the insurance company of the driver, you are at a disadvantage. This is what they do for a living, and this is probably your first time dealing with insurance issues, negligence, court filing, mediations, deadlines and all other things related to getting compensation for your injuries.
