How can I get a financial recovery following a delivery car accident?
It may be possible to secure financial recovery for the losses, expenses, and other harm you suffered through either an insurance claim or by suing the liable party in court. If it is the latter, you will have to present a strong argument to the judge and jury. Either action may hold the liable party accountable for your injuries and prevent you from suffering serious financial harm resulting from your accident.
How much you may be able to recover from your claim or award depends on many factors. There is no average financial recovery in car accident cases because injuries and damages can vary widely on a case-by-case basis. If we handle your case, our lawyer will identify your potentially recoverable damages before filing a claim.

- Past and future treatment and care for accident injuries

- Lost income and reduced ability to earn in the future

Proving liability in a delivery car accident in Texas
Liability in an accident caused by a food delivery car driver may not be as straightforward as other types of collisions because these drivers may be working at the time of the accident. In cases like this, the legal doctrine of respondeat superior may apply.
Under respondeat superior, companies may be vicariously liable when their workers act negligently and cause an accident. This is generally true when the accident occurs during their employment activities. For example, if a pizza delivery driver carrying a pizza to a customer fails to stop at a red light and collides with your car, the pizza restaurant may be legally responsible for your damages.
Vicarious liability generally applies to any employee of the company in question. This can get somewhat complicated when the driver is an independent contractor, but our law firm knows how to sort out the liable parties in these cases, as well. We can investigate the circumstances of your accident and determine what insurance policies may apply.
Building a case based on vicarious liability
When we hold a company vicariously liable for injuries, we may be able to often negotiate for a settlement without bringing a lawsuit to trial.
However, a food delivery car accident lawyer in Houston from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ will take your case to trial if we need to do so to fight for a fair outcome in your case. Our team is not afraid to fight for the recovery you may need to cover your losses, even if that means litigating your case.
The deadline to sue in Texas
Under Texas law, most car accident victims only have up to two years from the date of the collision to sue the liable party or parties in their case. We will need to ensure that you do not miss this or other deadlines, so act quickly following your collision to connect with us.
