Los Angeles DoorDash Accident Attorneys
DoorDash is one of the most popular food delivery services in California. This service allows consumers to use an app to order food from a wide variety of different restaurants. A DoorDash driver then picks up the food and delivers it to the consumer. Drivers for DoorDash, unfortunately, are not immune to becoming involved in an accident on the road. When they are involved in a crash, the aftermath is particularly confusing. Accident victims do not always know what compensation is available to them, or how to file a DoorDash insurance claim. Below, our experienced California DoorDash accident lawyer explains what you need to know.
Does DoorDash Provide Insurance for its Drivers?
DoorDash does not provide liability insurance to its drivers. The company does, however, require its drivers to carry the minimum auto insurance required by state law. In California, these limits are as follows:
- $15,000 per person for injury or death
- $30,000 per accident for injury or death
- $15,000 in uninsured motorist insurance
- $5,000 for property damage
The above limits are not always enough to cover the cost of injury after an accident. Like other motorists, DoorDash drivers often only carry the bare minimum required because they do not want to pay higher premiums. Consider, though, an accident that requires amputation of the victim’s leg. None of the above limits are enough to cover the cost of surgery, hospitalizations, medications, and accommodations that have to be made to a home.
DoorDash Insurance for Accident Victims
Fortunately, DoorDash does provide additional liability insurance when one of its drivers is involved in a crash. The amount of insurance DoorDash provides is up to $1 million for an accident. The insurance is only available when the DoorDash driver was in the process of making a delivery. For DoorDash drivers, this insurance is only available when the Dasher was carrying food at the time. Dashers must also exhaust their own insurance policy first before making a claim with DoorDash.
Issues that Arise with DoorDash’s Insurance
As with any other type of insurance, there are multiple complications that can arise with DoorDash insurance. The insurance company that provides liability coverage to DoorDash is also just like any other insurer. Their priority is retaining their profits and not on the safety and well-being of accident victims. When a claim is made and the insurance company has to pay it, that takes money directly from their bottom line. As such, they will try many tactics that are often unethical to deny, delay, and reduce your claim. A California car accident lawyer can handle your claim and hold the insurer accountable for paying the full settlement you deserve.
