Accidents Will Happen
With all the thousands of deliveries made by GrubHub drivers, there are going to be some accidents. However, GrubHub does not use employees; it uses independent contractors to deliver customers’ orders. Since they are independent contractors, GrubHub has no obligation to provide any commercial auto insurance coverage for their contractors.
All GrubHub drivers must possess a valid driver’s license, pass a background check and carry insurance as stipulated by the state of Illinois. If negligence on the part of a GrubHub driver causes you injuries, you may need to seek compensation from the insurance company, as well as any other parties who may prove liable.
Depending on the insurance a driver has chosen, he or she may not have much or any coverage for the accident. Many insurance companies have policies with complicated language. They will use complications to try to evade financial liability. If they are successful, this means you will have to recover damages from the driver. Depending on the driver and the amount of damages, it can be very difficult to recover the full amount of awarded damages.
GrubHub itself may not face any liability whatsoever. In order to hold the company liable, you must show that GrubHub did not follow proper procedure with respect to the driver who caused the accident. For instance, if GrubHub did not properly verify the driver’s license or age, or did not conduct a background check. If the driver has proven to be dangerous and GrubHub did not dismiss him or her, this can also constitute grounds for holding GrubHub responsible.
If you cannot demonstrate any negligence on the part of GrubHub, however, the company will not enter into the resolution. In such a case, you must deal with the driver’s insurance company. You will need help from experts who have been there before and know what they are doing. You need the attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC.
