Can you sue for delivery driver accidents in New Jersey?
In most cases where a food delivery driver causes an accident, you can directly sue the individual driver. Popular food delivery services, i.e. Postmates, DoorDash and UberEats, hire their employees as independent contractors. Many delivery services require each driver to have their own auto insurance policy. If they hit someone, then the driver’s insurance will cover the damages. You may also sue the delivery company directly. To do so, you will need to prove that the driver was carrying out duties related to his or her employment at the time of the accident. If he or she was making a delivery when he or she injured you, then you probably have a strong case. If the driver was on his or her way home, even if they were driving a work vehicle, you probably do not have a strong case.
