Get into an Accident with a Pizza Delivery Driver?

What You Need To Know About Crashes Involving a Pizza Delivery Driver

Getting into an accident caused by a pizza delivery driver can prove to be a tricky situation. Delivery drivers, more often than not, are considered independent contractors. Although employers are responsible for the actions of their employees, they are not generally responsible for the actions of independent contractors – who are not considered to be employees.

Pizza delivery companies, such as Pizza Hut and Domino’s, do not provide insurance coverage for their delivery drivers. Instead, they expect their drivers to have their own coverage. However, this is where it gets tricky. Most personal insurance carriers do not offer coverage if the collisions happened while the driver was using the car for business, such as delivering pizza. Moreover, some of these pizza delivery companies do not tell their delivery drivers that they need to have a commercial insurance policy in order to be covered during an accident while working.

Pizza Delivery Drivers Are at a Higher Risk of Causing Accidents

Delivery drivers, including pizza delivery drivers, are among a group of occupations with the highest fatality rate in the United States. Pizza delivery drivers are often in a rush and in a time constraint to deliver their pizzas within a specific amount of time. As such, this stress can cause them to drive erratically and unsafe, thus causing accidents.
Some common factors that increase the risk for a pizza delivery driver car crash include:

  1. – Lack of driving experience
  2. – Pressure to make fast deliveries
  3. – Spending an unusually long time on the road making deliveries, sometimes at night, on unfamiliar roads, and in hazardous weather conditions

Dealing with delivery drivers and their alleged independent contractor status may be confusing.
