Personal Injury Claims Against DoorDash: What You Need to Know

Brubaker Injury Law

August 24, 2022

Introduction

As the gig economy continues to thrive, food delivery services like DoorDash have become increasingly popular. However, with this rise in demand comes a corresponding increase in accidents and injuries involving DoorDash drivers. If you’ve been injured in an accident related to a DoorDash delivery, it’s essential to understand your rights and options.

Occupational Accident Policy

Coverage for Dashers

DoorDash provides an Occupational Accident Policy for its delivery drivers (Dashers). You should keep these general key points in mind:

  • Eligibility: U.S. Dashers are eligible for occupational accident insurance coverage, subject to policy terms and conditions.
  • Coverage Details:
    • Medical Expenses: Up to $1,000,000 with no deductible or co-pay.
    • Disability Payments: 50% of the average weekly wage, up to a maximum of $500.00 per week (minus other income).
  • No Enrollment or Premiums: Dashers do not need to sign up or pay for this coverage.
  • Not for Vehicle Damage: The policy covers injuries only, not damage to Dashers’ vehicles.

Filing a Claim

If you suffer an injury while making a DoorDash delivery, follow these steps to file a claim:

  1. Date of Injury: If the injury occurred on or after June 27, 2019, you’re eligible.
  2. Reporting Options:
    • Online: Visit BlueStar Claims and complete the intake and claim forms.
    • Phone: Call (480) 579-2405 (available 24/7/365).
    • Email: Send an email to DDintake@bluestarclaims.com.
  1. Suing DoorDash for Car Accidents

While the Occupational Accident Policy provides coverage for injuries, you may wonder if you can sue DoorDash directly for a car accident. Here’s what you should know:

  • Driver’s Personal Insurance: You may have a claim with the driver’s personal insurance provider.
  • Suing DoorDash: Under certain circumstances, you can sue DoorDash for injury support resulting from a collision caused by an on-duty DoorDash driver

Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim

Depending on the details of your incident, you might have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim against DoorDash. If successful, you could recover compensation for the harm you suffered. Consult an attorney experienced in personal injury law to explore your options.

Conclusion

As DoorDash continues to grow, understanding your rights as a Dasher and knowing how to navigate personal injury claims is crucial. If you’ve been injured, seek legal advice promptly to protect your interests.
