The vast majority of Grubhub crashes occur because drivers are not paying enough attention or are driving too hastily.

- Disobeying speed limits;
- Distracted driving;
- Reckless driving;
- Running red lights or stop signs;
- Failing to yield the right-of-way;
- Failing to signal when turning;
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;

All Grubhub delivery drivers are required to have a personal auto insurance policy. Grubhub considers its delivery drivers independent contractors as opposed to employees. Grubhub may try to claim that they are not responsible for their drivers because they are not technically employees. However, with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney Grubhub can still be held liable for its drivers’ conduct. Some common examples where Grubhub could be held liable include:
- The driver was not legally permitted to operate a vehicle;
- The driver was driving illegally;
- Grubhub failed to conduct a thorough background check of the driver;
- Grubhub failed to verify the driver had a valid insurance policy;
- The driver was known to be unsafe;
- The driver had a history of traffic violations; or
- The driver had prior accidents or incidences.
Grubhub may still do everything in their power to fight any claims for compensation for accident victims. Therefore, it is crucial to have a dedicated personal injury attorney fighting on your side.
