When a Food Delivery Car Accident in Tampa Leads to the Loss of a Loved One
If you lost a loved one due to someone’s negligence, you also have the right to seek compensation on their behalf. We can help you file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. A settlement or court-awarded offer may allow you to recover the following:
- Funeral, burial, or cremation services
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of consortium
- Your loved one’s medical bills associated with their fatal injuries
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering before their passing
An award can help your family adjust to the absence of a loved one and honor their memory. While you grieve in peace and spend time with your family, we can handle the legal process and seek fair compensation.
Developing a Case After a Food Delivery Car Accident in Tampa
In addition to assessing your damages, our lawyers can help you complete essential tasks and hold the driver of the delivery app company accountable. Our lawyers can help with the following:
Meeting Mandated State Deadlines
Some state-specific laws limit the time to take legal action after an accident that ends in injury or wrongful death. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11, you have four years to file a personal injury claim and two years to file a wrongful death claim. Any attempts to seek legal assistance and construct a case after these allotted windows might leave you with no options.
Remember that our lawyers also need time to investigate your accident, collect evidence, and negotiate a settlement with insurers. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can get started on your case, so you must abide by the relevant deadlines.
Investigating the Incident
When you work with our law firm, we will build your case by investigating the incident. Was the other driver distracted by their phone or another electronic device? Did the driver speed or drive recklessly to cause an accident?
We will look into these manual distractions and others as we collect appropriate forms of evidence.
When we gather evidence, we may obtain police reports, eyewitness testimony, medical expert testimony, traffic camera footage, and other relevant evidence. We will leave no stone unturned in your case.
Managing All the Communication With Other Parties
As your case develops, a lawyer from our firm will stay in contact with you. It may be necessary to communicate with drivers, companies, insurance agents, law enforcement, and other parties related to your case.
Depending on the food delivery company, whether Grubhub, DoorDash, or others, food delivery drivers could be hired as employees or independent contractors. This means they could be covered under the delivery service’s insurance or personal injury protection coverage.
We Will Take Care of Negotiations for You
Regardless of which situation applies, our lawyers are ready to fight for you to receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. Coverage also depends on whether the delivery driver was actively on the job; our lawyers in Tampa can review this when you meet with us.
We’ll confront the driver’s insurance company or the delivery company’s insurance company to negotiate a fair settlement for you. We’re aware of the tactics insurance adjusters use, especially for corporate companies, and we’re ready to shut them down and get you a settlement covering your expenses.
Examining the Cause of the Accident To Determine Negligence
When another party’s behaviors cause an accident, a lawyer from our firm will look closely at the source of the incident. As part of this process, they can investigate common forms of negligence, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Drowsy driving
- Speeding, many food delivery apps put a big emphasis on faster deliveries than normal
- Environmental causes, like bad weather and poor road conditions
- Mechanical defects and failures
- Inexperienced driving, for example, an accident that occurs due to unfamiliar roads
According to information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), several motor vehicle defects are responsible for accidents and collisions in the United States.
To mitigate the damage from these defects, the NHTSA works closely with a set of detailed federal safety standards to detect motor vehicle defects and stop them from causing further harm.
A lawyer from our firm will look at these potential causes and others as they gather evidence to identify the liable party. There may be more than one party responsible for the accident, which may owe you compensation.
