Los Angeles DoorDash Accident Attorneys
Over $1 Billion Recovered for Our Clients!
Due to the popularity of service apps like DoorDash, more and more delivery drivers are on the road than ever before. Because many of these drivers are forced to rush around town to complete their orders, the risk of being in a serious accident has dramatically increased.
Accidents involving DoorDash drivers are typically caused by:
- Speeding or rushing deliveries
- Distracted driving like using a GPS or other phone apps
- Sloppy or fatigued driving
Delivery companies are usually responsible for the driver while they are on the job. Claims are typically filed against the company or driver’s commercial policy. If a delivery company fails to complete a background check for their driver, you might have a claim for negligent hiring. Our lawyers can help you evaluate what filing option best fits your situation.

What Should I Do if I’m Injured by a DoorDash Driver?
If you are involved in a serious accident with a delivery driver, you should:
- Call 911 & report the accident
- Provide an accurate accident report to police
- Take photos of your injury and any other damage caused by the accident
- Seek medical care
- Copy all personal or company insurance policies for the driver
- File a personal injury claim with the insurers
What Should I Do if I Was Involved in a DoorDash Hit and Run?
If you have any knowledge about what the vehicle looked like, you should report that information to the police. Any distinguishing features are more helpful in this instance than your typical hit and run accident, because the number of DoorDash vehicles is relatively limited. Consider any video footage that may have been captured by nearby businesses or door cams, and include this on the police report. It could take some time to identify the vehicle and driver which struck you, so don't lose hope.
