If an accident involving a food delivery car harmed you, the driver or their employer might be financially liable for your damages. You may be able to receive compensation that covers your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine’s car accident lawyers can help you with an insurance claim or lawsuit. We have assisted victims in Orlando and throughout Florida with a variety of car accident cases.
We Will Help You Fight for Fair Compensation
If a food delivery car driver caused your car accident, you could pursue your crash-related expenses in an insurance claim or lawsuit. Our Orlando food delivery car accident lawyers can fight for compensation for your full range of damages.
This may include awards for:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Follow-up procedures
- Doctor visits
- Physical therapy and cognitive rehabilitation
- Lost wages and future lost earnings
- Permanent injuries and disabilities
- Loss of mobility or paralysis
- Loss of a limb, body part, or bodily function

Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one died because of their accident injuries, you might be able to win awards in a wrongful death case for:
- Final medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of their services
If you lost your parent, spouse, or child, you could win compensation for your pain and suffering. You may also be entitled to awards for the loss of their support, companionship, and guidance.
We Can Help You Seek Awards from the Liable Party
Restaurants that offer food delivery should have liability insurance to pay for damages caused by their drivers. App-based food delivery services require drivers who work for their services to have up-to-date personal auto insurance policies. These services also provide drivers with additional coverage while actively making deliveries.
If an Orlando area food delivery driver caused your accident, we can help you file an insurance claim with the applicable insurance policy (or policies). Our team will:
- Obtain documents and records relevant to your case
- Prove that you have suffered out-of-pocket losses
- Calculate fair compensation for your pain and suffering
- Negotiate for the best possible outcome for your claim
- Handle phone calls, emails, and other communications with the insurance companies
- Provide you with regular updates on the status of your claim
What Can You Do to Help with Your Case?
You can assist with your case by keeping copies of out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident, such as medical bills and vehicle repair bills. When talking with the insurance company, you may not want to:
- Admit guilt
- Go into detail about the accident
- Provide details about your injuries
- Give the insurer personal information beyond the basics, such as your name, address, and phone number
Note that we can handle these communications for you once we start working together.
You can also listen to your doctor and follow their care recommendations. You do not want to give the impression that you are feeling better than you are. Ignoring important physical therapy appointments, for example, could harm you later. Staying off social media can help for a similar reason. Any post or photo that seems upbeat might be mistaken for wellness.
Taking Your Case to Court
While we will do everything we can to avoid litigation, we will not let insurance companies push you around. If we cannot secure adequate awards outside of court, we can file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf.
The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is four years in Florida, according to Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a). For wrongful death cases, you have two years to file your lawsuit under Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d).
If these time limits expire before you take legal action, you may lose your right to sue.
We Will Work to Prove That Your Accident Was Not Your Fault
To win your case, you may need to prove that the food delivery driver did not act with a reasonable duty of care. This is known as negligence. Negligent driving includes actions like speeding, drinking and driving, and disobeying traffic laws.
We will build a case for negligence using a variety of available evidence, which may include:
- The delivery driver’s driving record
- Sobriety tests
- Red light camera footage
- Surveillance video
- Cell phone video
- Crash site information
- Medical records
- Eyewitness and expert testimony
How Your Orlando Accident Could Have Happened
The at-fault party could have been any of the following parties:
- A delivery driver that decided to operate their vehicle intoxicated, as this man in WKMG’s coverage did
- A distracted delivery driver that was using their phone to browse for their next order pickup
- A reckless delivery driver speeding and swerving in and out of lanes to arrive at their drop-off location faster
