In a town famous for its pizza, Chicago pizza delivery drivers are constantly buzzing all over town. With all that traffic, there are bound to be some auto accidents involving these delivery vehicles.
Pizza delivery drivers derive much of their income from tips, which means they want to make the deliveries as quickly as possible, both to please the customer and to get a chance to make more deliveries. They can get distracted looking for unfamiliar addresses. If nothing else, greater time on the road adds up to greater chances of being involved in an automobile accident.
If you have been the victim of negligence, you have the right to recover damages. However, the process can be a complicated one. If the driver has insurance, the insurance company will try to minimize its payout. You will need quality representation in such a case from a Chicago pizza delivery accident attorney.
In the Event of an Accident With a Pizza Delivery Vehicle
If an accident results in no injuries but merely damage to the automobiles involved, you can deal directly with the insurance company of the delivery driver. However, if there are injuries involved, you will need the competent representation of a professional.
Many such injuries do not become apparent until several days after the accident. The statute of limitations is long enough that this will not affect your ability to recover damages from the accident.
Pizza delivery companies can range in size from small family-owned businesses that are often under-insured, to large chains like Pizza Hut and Dominos. If the delivery driver was driving a company car, the courts can hold the delivery company liable for the accident. If the driver was driving his or her own car, then you will have to deal with the driver’s insurance company. Other prominent pizza delivery companies include: Lou Malnati’s, Little Ceasars and Papa Johns.
In the state of Illinois, there are a number of types of recovery for personal injury stemming from an automobile accident.
- Medical expenses. You can recover all expenses, including expected expenses in the future.
- Lost wages. Lost wages include time missed at work as well as the inability to perform a job you worked before the accident.
- Pain and suffering. No one should have to endure the pain of injury due to another’s negligence, and you have a right to compensation for it.
- Vehicle damage. You have a right to your vehicle as it was, or to a comparable replacement.
- Punitive damages. Sometimes, if the negligence was egregious, the recovery will be higher as a way to punish the driver for wanton carelessness.
