Delivery Service Driver Negligence
| UberEats | Lyft | FedEx | UPS | Amazon | Instacart
In today’s society, more and more people rely on delivery services to provide meals, groceries, transportation, important medications and everyday household items. There are multiple companies that provide these ride sharing and delivery services directly to our homes. Demand for these services seem to be growing every day.
At any given time, delivery services can be inundated with orders, “notifications,” and a variety of customer requests. This can lead to long hours on the road, fatigue, distracted and negligent driving, and other driving errors which can jeopardize the safety of others on the road. It is easy to see how high demands for and on these services can increase the likelihood of car accidents, injuries to pedestrians and cyclists, and other harm. This is especially true for Miami residents given Miami’s crowded roads and increasing population.
At Vinas & DeLuca, we have handled multiple claims against these delivery and ride sharing companies. We know how negligent hiring practices, failure to properly interview drivers, and failure to perform adequate background checks can lead to injuries and cause car accidents and pedestrian injuries. If you, a family member, or a love one has been involved in an accident or injured by the negligence of a delivery or ride share driver, please give us a call so we can discuss your potential claim and how we can help.
