Favor claims to be able to deliver almost any item within an hour to most Texas locations for a relatively low delivery fee. Deliveries can range from food pick-up to dropping off merchandise. As the idea has generally been popular in Texas, Favor has recently secured over $20 million in investor funding to expand their business in Texas and boasts they have recently exceeded five million deliveries in Texas.
Favor typically attempts to categorize their delivery drivers as “independent contractors,” meaning they are not full-time employees, to attempt to circumvent paying certain taxes and insurance policies. Nonetheless, Favor has private company insurance in order to cover accidents that Favor employees may have caused or been involved in while delivering on behalf of Favor.
Therefore, if you have been injured by a Favor delivery driver, an attorney has the option to seek compensation from Favor, their driver, or their insurance companies.
