Have you been involved in an accident with a Postmates driver?
Many people in South Florida use Postmates, a popular delivery app that allows you to order food, groceries, and a range of other products from local restaurants and stores right to your front door. Postmates’ increased popularity means that there are now more Postmates drivers on the roads, and drivers are often under pressure to fulfill numerous orders within short windows of time. Unfortunately, this means we’ve seen an increase in accidents and injuries.
If you’ve been involved in an accident with a Postmates driver, you need experienced legal representation who can answer your questions and discuss your options. You deserve fair compensation for any injuries or damages you’ve sustained due to the accident, and this includes medical bills, as well as loss of income due to your inability to work. Contact our team today and learn more about how we can help you.
Why you need guidance from an experienced legal team
Accidents involving Postmates drivers are often not as straightforward as other car accidents because the Postmates insurance policy coverage varies according to the circumstances of each accident. All Postmates drivers are required to have their own personal auto insurance coverage, but the company does cover its drivers in certain situations.
Because Postmates accidents sometimes involve multiple parties, we recommend working with a legal team who understands how the Postmates auto insurance policies work and who can help you navigate the process.
Take these steps immediately after an accident with a Postmates driver:
Call the police and keep everyone on site until the police arrive to file an accident report. While waiting for the police to arrive, exchange information with the Postmates driver and with anyone who saw the accident occur. Once the police have filed their report, be sure you take photos of the entire area, including all vehicles involved in the crash, surrounding traffic lights and road signs, and the street where the accident occurred.
Once you’ve documented everything, you can seek medical treatment if it’s necessary, and be sure to document any treatment you receive. After you’ve taken these steps, we recommend you contact an experienced legal team as soon as possible, and do not discuss the details of your Postmates accident with anyone except your legal representation.
