Question: I was hit by a Grubhub driver. My car was totaled and I had to go to the hospital. I will need more medical treatment. Who will pay?
Answer: Grubhub does not provide liability coverage for their drivers. They require their drivers to carry their own auto insurance. The problem is: the Grubhub driver’s personal auto insurance may not cover the accident because the driver was driving for a delivery service.
If you were seriously injured in the accident, and it sounds like you were, you should have a consultation with a personal injury attorney. We will investigate all possible sources of recovery, including Grubhub, the driver’s personal auto insurance carrier, and whether you had uninsured motorist coverage on your own policy.
App delivery drivers like Grubhub, Postmates, UberEats and DoorDash are prone to causing accidents. Why? Because they are often driving in unfamiliar areas, rushing to make their delivery, distracted by the app, searching for a house number and tired.
If the delivery driver was at fault for the accident, you are entitled to make a claim for:
- Medical bills – past and future
- Loss of earnings – past and future
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
