Phoenix, AZ Door Dash Accident Lawyer

In recent years, there has been a rise in demand for food delivery, especially after 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Delivery apps like DoorDash make it easier than ever to get a meal right to your door quickly – but the more they become popular and the more options there are in delivery apps, the more delivery drivers you may see on the road. And sadly, an increase in the use of these apps and the delivery drivers fulfilling requests means an increase in DoorDash accidents.

With more demand than ever for food to be delivered right to your doorstep, there is unfortunately also an increased risk of being involved in a collision with a DoorDash delivery vehicle. Because DoorDash drivers know that more deliveries equal more tips, some drivers may be choosing to drive recklessly to get more delivery orders completed in a shorter amount of time. They may also be distracted by the DoorDash app itself while they’re driving whatever car or bike they’re using to make the deliveries.

In fact, according to DoorDash’s own Requirements for Dashing guidelines, “You can use any car to deliver. Just have a valid domestic driver’s license, insurance, and a clean driving record. In certain markets, you can also dash via motorcycle, bike, e-bike, or scooter.” So there are any number of types of vehicles on the road that could wind up in a DoorDash accident.

Insurance and other legalities can get complicated if you find yourself involved in a DoorDash accident. Although DoorDash does have “a commercial auto insurance policy that covers up to $1,000,000 in bodily injury and/or property damage to third parties arising out of accidents while on an active delivery,” what if the driver isn’t on an active delivery? Or, what if the DoorDash driver doesn’t have auto insurance, meaning DoorDash’s coverage may not apply?
