Uber Eats Car Accident Injury Attorney

April 24, 2019

Uber Eats is now a name you’ve probably heard here in Southern California.

This platform was created by Uber to give their huge customer base another option to spend their money on.

The food delivery business has become a big industry as we see companies like Postmates, DoorDash, and others entering the space over the last few years.

Uber Eats basically allows the customer to order food from restaurants that might not offer delivery services themselves, and this way Uber drivers can deliver the food.

Obviously the increase in Uber Eats drivers has created a lot of jobs, but it also has created more and more car accidents and injury victims.

Many of the drivers that work for Uber Eats are in a hurry to deliver the food on time, and this can cause the Uber Eats drivers to drive unsafe.

Depending on what the Uber Eats driver is doing, the insurance policy can change.

If the app is on, but the driver is not actually delivering any food, then he/she is covered up to $50k/$100k/$25k (accident per individual, per accident, and property damage).

If the Uber Eats driver is actually on a job and in the process of delivering the food, then the coverage will increase to the $1 Million policy which can also extend to any third parties involved in the crash.

What Causes Uber Eats Car Accidents

Uber Eats drivers are typically in a hurry to make as many deliveries as possible in the shortest amount of time.

Obviously the more food an Uber Eats driver can deliver then the more tips they can make!

The problem with this is that Uber Eats drivers might drive recklessly or very aggressive as they cruise all over town dropping off food.

Here is a list of common reasons for accidents involving Uber Eats drivers:

  1. Speeding
  2. Distracted driving (texting, looking at map, etc.)
  3. Running red lights and stop signs
  4. Tailgating
  5. Road Rage
  6. Driver fatigue (working too many hours)

All of these reasons can cause an accident (or at least partially cause the wreck), so if you have been injured in a recent Uber Eats accident then contact us today for help.

Just remember that the insurance company does not like paying out money.

So many factors can determine what injuries you might suffer from a Uber Eats car crash.

If you are driving a Chevy Tahoe at just 5PMH and you are hit by an Uber Eats driver then there is a good chance you won’t get seriously hurt.

But if you are driving a 1991 Honda Civic with no airbags and you get hit at say 30 MPH then there is a good chance you could get seriously injured.

An Uber Eats driver not paying attention or driving recklessly could cause injuries like:

  1. Knee and ankle injuries 
  2. Concussion
  3. Brain injury
  4. Back and neck injury
  5. Amputated limbs

Property damage – damage to vehicle and personal items

Lost wages – for the past and future earnings if you’ll miss work due to accident

Medical expenses – physical therapy, hospital, ER, surgery, etc.

Pain and suffering – fear, anxiety, PTSD, stress, etc.

Wrongful death – loss of consortium, funeral bills, loss of inheritance, etc.

Call our law firm today for answers and let us fight Uber Eats insurance for you.

Taking on these giant insurance companies can be stressful.

And if you don’t know what you are doing then you’ll screw yourself over and get a low settlement.
