How do attorneys help victims of a pizza delivery driver accident?

Not only does a personal injury attorney increase your chances of success in the legal process, but they can also also help to relieve the stress you might otherwise experience while dealing with your case. A lawyer can help you with filing your claim and negotiate a possible settlement. Plus, if a personal injury attorney takes your case, they will be able to answer your questions every step of the way. Here’s how a Zinda Law Group personal injury attorney can help you if you’ve been in an accident:

File a Claim for Your Pizza Delivery Driver Accident

In Colorado, you have three years from the date of the accident to sue the person or company that caused your injuries. When you file, you must go to the correct court, follow the appropriate rules of civil procedure, and state a proper claim. If your claim does not clearly state how the other driver was negligent and why you deserve to be compensated, then the defendant could have the court dismiss the matter altogether. Boulder personal attorneys are extremely familiar with the elements of negligence and can help you create a proper claim.

Lawyers Can Negotiate a Settlement

After the claim is filed, the defendant (s) will have the opportunity to respond with an answer or a counterclaim. Then, the parties begin working toward negotiation. The attorneys involved in the case will undergo a process called discovery, during which they conduct interviews with people who saw the accident as well as with the parties directly involved in the lawsuit. These interviews provide the parties with a fuller picture of the accident as well as an idea of the appropriate settlement amount.

Negotiation requires plenty of back-and-forth with the defendant’s legal team, and the defendant will attempt to reduce his or her liability. The defendant’s legal team and insurance company might try to poke holes in your argument to convince you to settle for a lower amount. This is where a Boulder personal injury attorney can stand up for your rights and seek maximum compensation.

How Do Lawyers Determine Compensation?

When lawyers agree to a settlement amount, they predict how the case would come out if the parties were to go to trial. The lawyers base their predictions on the victim’s economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages include the victim’s financial costs associated with the accident, such as the cost of medical treatment and missed wages. Non-economic damages, however, include the victim’s pain and suffering from the accident.

What causes pizza delivery accidents in Boulder?

Some people might think to blame the driver’s age and inexperience for most pizza delivery accidents, but this perpetuates a stereotype that is no longer true. Most pizza delivery drivers are not caused by gangly teens often depicted in movies and TV shows. In fact, the average delivery driver is forty years old. Here are the most common causes of pizza delivery accidents:

Fatigued Driving

According to AAA, drowsy driving accounts for 9.5% of all automobile crashes. Fatigue affects a driver similar to alcohol. Specifically, it slows the driver’s reaction time and impacts judgment and vision. Most accidents caused by fatigue occur in the late afternoon or between midnight and six o’clock in the morning.

Pressure to Drive Fast

Pizza delivery owes it success to its convenience and the speed of its drivers. Back in the 1980s, Domino’s Pizza guaranteed customers that pizza would arrive within thirty minutes of the time the customer ordered, or the pizza would be free. While this promotion ended as a result of the lawsuits against Domino’s, people still expect fast pizza and will tip (or refuse to tip) accordingly. As a result, employees feel pressured to deliver pizzas as quickly as possible  because they know that they can collect a larger tip. This, in turn, leads to speeding, and  unsafe driving behavior.

Unfamiliar Places

Pizza companies usually deliver within a wide radius, often covering areas of a city they may be unfamiliar with. This lack of familiarity could increase the likelihood that the driver makes a mistake and causes an accident. If the driver cannot find someone’s house or apartment, he or she might be distracted trying to communicate with the customer to find the delivery location instead of focusing on the road.


Who is liable when an accident involves a delivery driver?

In personal injury claims, there is a tortfeasor and a victim. The tortfeasor is the person who caused the accident, and the victim is the party who was injured by the tortfeasor. In an accident with a pizza delivery driver, the tortfeasor’s negligent acts most likely caused the victim’s injury.

Two parties could be held liable for the accident: the delivery driver and the pizza company. While the delivery driver most likely caused the crash, the pizza company might be vicariously liable for the negligent acts of the employee under certain circumstances. Vicarious liability means that the employer must step into the employee’s shoes for the purposes of a lawsuit.

Sometimes the victims in car accidents partially caused the crash. Fortunately, under Colorado law, a plaintiff can still recover for the injuries from a crash he or she partially caused, so long as the plaintiff’s fault is not greater than the defendant’s fault. However, this means that the amount of compensation the plaintiff may receive is reduced by the amount of fault the plaintiff must take. For example, if the plaintiff would have received $100,000 in compensation but was 25% at fault, the plaintiff may receive $75,000.

When the Pizza Delivery Driver is Liable

While there are certain circumstances under which the pizza company must take responsibility for the employee’s negligent acts, the company can argue that the employee was not working for the company at the moment the accident occurred. In those instances, the company will not likely be part of the lawsuit and the plaintiff only has recourse against the pizza delivery driver.

There are a few ways that the pizza company could argue that the pizza delivery driver was not working for it at the time of the crash. First, according to the Going and Coming Rule, an employer typically does not have to take responsibility for an employee’s negligence if the accident happens during the employee’s routine commute to or from work.  If there are special circumstances surrounding the commute, a lawyer might argue that the employee was performing a task to further the employer’s business, so the employer must be liable. In general, if the employee was not on the clock, the employer is not vicariously liable.

On the other hand, if the employee was delivering pizzas when he or she crashed, it would be difficult for the pizza company to argue that it should not be held liable. Similarly, if the employee crashes while driving back to the pizzeria after delivering pizzas,  the company will probably be held responsible for the accident. Any accidents that occur within the employee’s scope of employment give the victim a way to recover against the pizza company.

When the Pizza Company is Liable

We have seen how the pizza company can be liable for the negligent acts of the employee, but is the pizza company ever negligent on its own? Yes. The pizza company might hire someone who is unfit to deliver pizzas because he or she has a bad driving record, does not have insurance, or does not have a safe, dependable car. A driver who lacks those qualifications increases the risk of crashing with other drivers on the road, and the pizza company should have foreseen how hiring the driver could cause an accident.

The pizza company may also have been negligent by failing to properly train the employee. Companies experience high turnover rates with delivery drivers, so they constantly train new employees for the job.. Pizza companies must exercise the appropriate amount of care in training pizza delivery drivers to prevent potential future collisions.

Finally, the pizza company could be negligently creating a work environment that encourages unsafe practices. For example, the company might encourage drivers to speed in order to fit as many orders in a day as possible.. The pizza company should foresee how this policy can cause accidents involving the pizza delivery drivers.

I had the privilege of working with Zinda Law Group recently and was thoroughly impressed with the level of service and support they provided. When we began, I had reservations about the likelihood of reaching a settlement, but the team's professionalism, intelligence, and dedication quickly put those doubts to rest. They went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable throughout the process, and their hard work and strong advocacy ultimately led to a successful outcome. I cannot thank Zinda Law Group and their staff enough for their exceptional service and support, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their commitment to their clients and their willingness to fight for what's right truly sets them apart. In short, I give them a rating of five stars for their outstanding work.
Zinda Law Group is amazing! My husband was in an accident and they made the process super easy and hassle free. They took care of everything, we are so appreciative for them! They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.

Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
They helped me after I got into car accident, they are such a great professional business. I would honestly recommend them to anyone that would need help after a car accident for sure, they kept me up to date with everything that was happening on with my case. I had multiple people working on my said case and they were very professional and nice whenever they had called me and kept it very simple for me to understand what was actually going on. I'm extremely happy that I had found them and went with them to help me and I'm so thankful for them. 10/10 would recommend!
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I ended up getting hit by a car when I was at school at the age of 17. My whole life ended up changing after that accident and because of family matters I wasn't able to get help till I was 18. I found Zinda law firm and I can swear to anyone these guys will help you! I thought I wasn't gonna get justice till the members of Zinda proved me wrong. They got me all the help I needed and Justice was served because of them. I will forever be grateful!
I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

What is Negligence in an accident with a pizza delivery driver?

Now that you have an idea of who is liable when an accident includes a delivery driver, you may want to know what that means for your legal claim. Usually, the appropriate claim in a pizza delivery accident is negligence. There are four elements that a plaintiff must prove in a negligence claim:

  1. The delivery driver or company owed you a duty of care.
  2. The delivery driver or company breached that duty of care.
  3. You were injured in a way that allows you to be compensated.
  4. The delivery driver or company caused your injury.

Duty of Care: The Delivery Driver vs. The Pizza Company

The duty of care that the delivery driver owes other drivers on the road is the level of care that a reasonable person would take under those circumstances while driving. For example, a reasonable driver would slow down for different road conditions like construction or weather that causes poor visibility. Drivers who show the right level of care can prevent foreseeable harm.

A pizza company owes drivers on the road a duty of care by ensuring it hires qualified drivers. For example, when Domino’s lost a massive lawsuit due to the unsafe “thirty minutes or less” guarantee, the result sent a message to the pizza delivery industry that such guarantees are unsafe. Talk to a personal injury lawyer to see whether the driver or company in your case showed the correct level of care.

Breach of the Duty of Care

A driver breaches the duty of care when he or she fails to uphold the level of care that a reasonable person would take. For example, a driver beaches his or her duty of care by speeding when there is ice on the road. A pizza company breaches its duty of care when it violates industry safety standards.

The Injury Must Be Compensable

The last two elements of negligence pertain to the injury you received. It must be compensable, meaning it is covered under the law. If a pizza delivery driver merely cut you off in traffic, you have probably not suffered a compensable injury. On the other hand, if you received economic or non-economic damages or some physical injury, then your injury is likely compensable.

The Defendant Must Have Caused Your Injury

Finally, the person you sue must have caused the injury. If a pizza delivery vehicle was merely involved in the accident but did not cause it, then the driver or company probably does not fulfill this final element of negligence. Crashes involving multiple vehicles can be tricky, so talk with a lawyer to see whether the defendant caused your injury.

Let our Boulder pizza delivery accident lawyers at Zinda law group help you

You may think that a lawsuit is the last thing you want to add on top of all of your medical expenses and appointments, but a lawyer can help you with your claim. Also, filing your claim may be the only way you can seek compensation for the injury that the delivery driver caused.
