There are some amazing pizza places in LA if you know where to look. There’s L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele in Hollywood or Roberta’s in Culver City just to name a couple. Truth is, as big as LA is, there’s every type of pizza out there for every taste.

Better yet, most of them deliver, and if they don’t, then you can use DoorDash, GrubHub or other app-based delivery companies to get it to your table.

Some Like it Hot

Ok, everyone likes it hot, and that’s the problem. With pizza delivery, there’s zero incentive to drive slow and safe. In fact, if the driver doesn’t get it there fast, then the customer is unhappy, the pizza shop owner is unhappy, and this makes the driver unhappy—and broke.

Real-Life Consequences

Unfortunately, the reality of the low pay for pizza delivery drivers has consequences for everyone who is driving, walking, or cycling on the city street and sidewalks. The more drivers there are and the faster they go, the more accidents and injuries for everyone.

How Do These Accidents Happen?

Putting pressure on a delivery driver to get it done fast translates into certain risks taken which can be tied to certain types of accidents and injuries. Some of these risk that police and EMS have seen from delivery drivers are:

  • Speeding
  • Running Red Lights
  • Failure to Yield Right of Way
  • Weaving in and out of Traffic Lanes
  • Cutting Across Parking Lots
  • Reckless Driving
  • Aggressive Driving

These are just a few of them. The bottom line is, it shouldn’t be your fault that someone ordered a pizza, and the delivery driver needed to lead-foot it to their door. If this has happened to you, talk to an attorney who knows what you’re going through before you talk to anyone else about the accident.

Who Pays for Your Injuries?

We all know that you have to have insurance to drive, and that’s also true for delivery drivers. Whether it’s a national chain like Domino’s or a local mom and pop brick oven pizza shop, there will be insurance that will cover your injuries.

However, many times the insurance company will attempt to deflect the liability away from the company. They will tell you that it was their driver’s fault and not the company’s. Or they might even try to pin the accident on you.

Don’t stand for this, talk to an attorney right away so you can learn your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
