Pizza Delivery Driver Accident Lawyers in Denver, Colorado

You might remember Domino’s famed 30-minutes-or-less guarantee. If your pizza did not arrive within half an hour, you got it for free—or, in later years, at a discount. Even though this guarantee is a thing of the past, Denver pizza delivery accident lawyers are still busy with cases of reckless delivery drivers who failed to take the appropriate care while carrying out their jobs.

This article will look at the requirements that employers place upon pizza delivery drivers, which can help determine the appropriate amount of care that the driver should have taken to avoid the crash. We will also explore how an attorney can help you.

If you or a loved one were hurt in an accident with a pizza delivery driver, call a Zinda Law Group lawyer at (800) 863-5312 for your free consultation today.

When Domino’s could not avoid the Noid

We already briefly mentioned Domino’s guarantee that went awry; Domino’s implemented the guarantee in 1984 as a promotion. The pizza company kept a budget for lawsuits from the wrecks its pizza delivery drivers caused. A whole character and culture grew out of that promise of fast pizza delivered to your doorstep: “The Noid” appeared in commercials and even a video game as a villain who would try to stop Domino’s delivery drivers from reaching their destination on time, and countless American movies and television shows referenced the guarantee.

In 1989, Jean Kinder was driving her vehicle in Missouri when she was struck and seriously injured by a Domino’s pizza delivery driver. Her case went to trial, and the jury awarded her $750,000 for the actual injuries she received from the crash and another $78 million to penalize Domino’s for its dangerous policy. The jury found that the guarantee pressured pizza delivery drivers to meet the popular 30-minute deadline at the expense of other drivers on the road; the strict fine on Domino’s encouraged it to bring the guarantee to an end and potentially avoid more cases of negligent pizza delivery drivers.

Today, delivery services are discouraged from making guarantees like the one Domino’s used to make. However, this does not stop the common understanding between delivery drivers and customers that fast service means a bigger tip. Even if not pressured by their employers, some food delivery drivers still intrinsically feel the pressure to prioritize taking a short amount of time to reach the destination over taking precautions to drive safely.

Requirements of pizza delivery drivers

A quick examination of the requirements that pizza companies place on incoming delivery drivers can help us understand the standards and expectations that are placed on the drivers and whether they met those standards when they crashed into you.

Note that under both of the samples we have drawn, there are no extra requirements of drivers than would be expected of the average driver on the road at the application stage. Employers have their own interviewing and training processes that applicants must complete after the application stage.

Papa John’s Requirements for Drivers

Papa John’s only has a few preliminary requirements of prospective pizza delivery drivers. It simply requires that the applicant:

  • Be 18 years old or older
  • Have insurance
  • Have an acceptable driving record

This is just the first stage of the hiring process, so there are additional checks on drivers at the interviewing and training stages. These should also meet industry standards, and if an employer fails to take further precautions to prevent foreseeable harm at later stages of the hiring process, the employer might be negligent. We will discuss the standard of care that employers and employees must perform in more depth in the following sections.

Domino’s Requirements for Drivers

Domino’s lists a few more requirements that Papa John’s does on its hiring website, but one could argue that those extra requirements are implied for an applicant who wants to be a delivery driver. Domino’s requires its drivers to:

  • Be 18 years old or older
  • Have a valid driver’s license
  • Have a safe driving record
  • Be able to read a map
  • Be able to locate the address
  • Be able to “navigate adverse terrain, including multi-story buildings”
  • Have access to a vehicle that can be used for delivery
  • Have insurance on that vehicle


Causes of pizza delivery accidents in Denver

You might believe that pizza delivery drivers are all high school students and that they get into wrecks due to their inexperience with driving. Pizza delivery drivers no longer meet that stereotype, since the average age of a pizza delivery driver nationwide is 48.

Of course, there are still some very young drivers who lack driving experience. They might not have the instinct to brake suddenly when the car in front of them comes to a stop, or they might not know how to adjust their driving for bad weather. However, there are other factors that weigh more heavily than age that can cause a driver to act negligently and crash.

Spending More Time on the Road

You might imagine that someone who spends more time on the road than the average driver has more experience driving and therefore ends up in fewer traffic accidents; however, that is not necessarily the case. Sometimes, the more amount of time someone spends on the road, the more likely that person is to drive while fatigued or distracted. Also, it increases the likelihood that the average driver on the road will collide with a driver who is driving while fatigued or distracted.

Fatigued Driving

Driving while fatigued is something that occurs often at night or with people who are constantly on the road. They can begin nodding off or lose focus, causing them to veer out of their lanes or fail to respond to changing traffic conditions. If a pizza delivery driver is at the end of a long shift or is driving at night, there is a chance that the driver is fatigued and therefore more likely to be involved in a crash.

Being in Unfamiliar Spaces

Pizza delivery drivers usually use some sort of navigation system on their phone or car to find the delivery locations. This might in some cases constitute distracted driving if the driver has not properly mounted his or her navigation device on the vehicle. The navigation app or system might also take the driver on an unfamiliar route; this could cause problems if the driver is not used to a certain hidden drive or the location of a one-way street.

Time Pressure

Again, even though pizza companies have been disincentivized from making timed guarantees, employees feel pressure to provide speedy service for customers. If a driver knows he or she will make a better tip by getting the pizza to the customer faster, he or she might negligently speed. If the driver is paid by delivery, this could also contribute to the issue of driving too fast to make more deliveries.

Whom to sue in the accident

The determination of fault in pizza delivery accidents in Denver will drive the course of the case; that determination depends heavily on the facts of the case. That is why, as we will discuss later, it is extremely important for you to gather the contact information of witnesses who saw the accident, if possible. If you do not have witnesses, you may need to engage the help of experts to testify about the physical evidence, such as tire tracks or dent marks.

Since fault is a question of fact, a jury will decide that element of your case should it go to trial. An experienced lawyer will make an educated prediction about how a jury would rule. He or she will know how similar local cases fared in Denver courts. The following examples show a few scenarios; in some, the pizza company was liable or negligent, while in others, the pizza delivery driver was at fault.

The Pizza Company

The pizza company will be at fault in situations in which there is vicarious liability. This means that the employer puts itself in the place of the employee in the lawsuit to take responsibility for the negligent acts or omissions that the employee committed while working for the employer. The employer can be negligent in hiring or training the employee who crashed into another driver, or it can have other procedures that do not meet the appropriate, modern industry standards.

Employers might be negligent in hiring someone who does not meet the company’s qualifications for incoming drivers. The employer might have instead failed during the interview process or the training process of the employee. Often, companies have peers train each other rather than supervisors; this could allow negligent training of pizza delivery drivers.

Companies that encourage delivery drivers to make as many deliveries possible in as short of an amount of time as possible help perpetuate the drivers’ and customers’ expectations of speedy service for higher tips. Other procedures and practices in the pizza company’s workplace might also make it negligent if it clearly fails to prevent foreseeable harm.

The Driver

A company is not vicariously liable for an employee who was not working when the act or omission that led to the negligence was committed. The law distinguishes two types of employee behavior that determine whether the employee was working for the company when the employee was not doing something specifically for the employer at the time of the accident.

1. A frolic is an entirely self-serving break from the employee’s job during which the employer does not take responsibility for the torts the employee commits.

2. A detour is a brief break from the worker’s assigned task during which the employer must take responsibility for the torts the employee commits. If it is unclear whether the pizza delivery driver was working for the employer at the time of the accident, talk to an attorney near you to help you work through this question.

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.

I recommend anyone dealing with auto accidents (or similarly) to Zinda Law group.I felt I was very important to them and that my feelings and thoughts were validated.

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 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!

Negligence in pizza delivery accidents. Our Denver Pizza Delivery Accident Lawyers Can Help.

Whether you sue the pizza delivery company or the driver or both, you will likely use a theory of negligence. A claim for negligence includes elements that the victim must prove pertaining to the defendant (delivery driver or company) and elements that the victim must prove pertaining to the victim’s injury.

Elements Pertaining to the Pizza Delivery Driver or Company

The first part of any negligence claim is the establishment of a duty of care, and such a duty of care exists by nature of certain relationships. Drivers who do not have or require any professional qualifications or licensure must afford each other the level of care that any reasonable person on the road would take to prevent foreseeable harm; this includes abiding by traffic laws generally and being alert to any changing road conditions. For example, a reasonable person would not attempt to drive the ordinary speed limit in a traffic jam.

In order to prove a negligence case against a pizza delivery driver or company, you must show that the pizza delivery driver or company owed you a duty of care and that the pizza delivery driver or company breached that duty of care. Drivers and employers breach their duty of care when they do not maintain the standard of care of a reasonable person or, in the case of the employer, when they fail to adopt common safety measures within the industry to help employees avoid negligent acts.

Elements Pertaining to Your Injury

The next elements you must prove relate to the injury that you sustained as a result of the accident; first, you must prove that your injury is the type for which you can receive compensation. If you sustained a physical injury, you can show that you suffered harm that the law is able to compensate; an emotional injury without any physical damage would not likely be sufficient to show that you suffered a compensable harm in a pizza delivery accident case. Last, you must show that the pizza delivery driver or the pizza company caused your injury.
