Why do you need an experienced Instacart accident lawyer?
Instacart does not insure its drivers. Instead, it requires all drivers to have their own personal auto insurance policies. However, some auto insurance companies may classify driving for Instacart as a “commercial activity” and will assert that personal insurance policies do not cover accidents that happened while the individual was making an Instacart delivery.
You can see how the situation can easily become very tricky. If you’ve sustained an injury from an accident with an Instacart driver, it’s very important that you speak with someone who has experience in this area.
Here’s what to do if you’ve been in an accident with an Instacart driver:
- Call the police and have them file a report
- Take photos of all vehicles involved in the accident, including the surrounding area, traffic lights, and any road signs
- Be sure you exchange information with everyone involved in the accident, including any witnesses
- Get medical treatment if you think you’ve been injured
