If you were injured in an accident caused by a food delivery driver or you are a food delivery driver injured by another party, you want to understand your legal rights for seeking financial recovery.
A food delivery car accident lawyer serving McAllen can help determine who is responsible for paying your damages in these complicated cases.
Who pays your damages after a food delivery car accident?
It is important to identify the liable party (or parties) in these cases because you should not have to pay for medical bills and other losses for an accident that was not your fault.

Who may be held accountable for your damages:
- The food delivery company
- The food delivery driver
- Another motorist or third party

If you or a loved one was harmed in this type of collision, an attorney with our firm can help with your case.

A food delivery car accident lawyer serving McAllen can take an objective assessment of your case.

We might use accident reconstruction technology to answer questions about liability and responsibility.
You can rest assured that our legal advocates have your best interest in mind and will fight for you as if you were a member of our family.
We determine who pays for your damages based upon liability
Texas recognizes different forms of liability after a food delivery car accident or another personal injury:
- Direct liability (for example, the food delivery driver or another motorist)
- Vicarious liability (such as the food delivery company)
A lawyer can identify all liable parties to see who pays for your damages. This may be the driver’s personal auto insurance, the food delivery company’s insurance, or the third party’s insurance.
For example, Doordash provides their drivers with $1 million liability insurance for bodily injury or property damage in certain circumstances, such as:
- The driver’s personal auto insurance is exhausted.
- The accident happened while the driver was actively delivering through the app.
A lawyer can identify, communicate, and file an insurance claim to help you recover damages.
