Pizza Delivery Driver Accident Lawyers in Tucson, Arizona

1308 Reviews


Americans love pizza; the average American will eat around 6,000 slices in a lifetime. That affection comes at least in some part because of the convenience of the meal; there are over 75,000 pizza restaurants in the United States, averaging almost four per city, town, or village. Tucson pizza delivery accident lawyers also recognize the convenience of pizza, but they have seen the dark side of the industry in the shortcuts pizzerias take to ensure fast service.

Pizzerias and pizza delivery drivers who negligently harm others should pay for the accidents they cause. This article explores how victims of pizza delivery accidents can recover for their injuries. If you or a loved one were hurt in a pizza delivery accident in or near Tucson, Arizona, call a Zinda Law Group lawyer at (800) 863-5312 for your free consultation.

What is a pizza delivery lawsuit?

There would not be pizza delivery lawsuits if not for the unparalleled popularity of delivered pizzas. Pizza deliveries took off in the 1950s as pizzerias began advertising their menus on television for customers to order and take home. Soon, the trend of pizza delivery skyrocketed; Domino’s Pizza started guaranteeing its customers that it would bring piping hot pizzas to their doorsteps within 30 minutes of their customers’ orders or the pizza would be free.

Once customers began taking advantage of the 30-minute guarantee—sometimes turning off their porch lights or refusing to answer their doors so that delivery drivers could not deliver the pizzas within the time limit—Domino’s adjusted its guarantee to provide a $3 discount to pizzas that did not enter the hands of customers within the 30-minute mark. The guarantee became something of a cultural legend, appearing in numerous American films and TV shows. Unseen by audiences, behind the scenes of these guarantees, Domino’s delivery drivers were causing fatalities by rushing to make the deliveries in time.

Those fatalities culminated in one giant lawsuit when a Domino’s delivery driver crashed into another motorist, Jean Kinder, and seriously injured her; this lawsuit ended with Domino’s paying $78 million to Jean as a penalty for its 30-minute guarantee that encouraged negligent driving by its employees. Today, pizzerias still must take responsibility for the negligence of their employees while their employees are working. If a pizza delivery driver crashes into you and injures you, that driver or the pizza company or both could be liable for your injuries and owe you compensation.

What should victims do after pizza delivery accidents in Tucson?

Victims of any kind of car accident have their lives disrupted in one way or another. In minor fender benders, the victim has to deal with insurance companies or at the very least bear the disappointment of driving a dented vehicle. In very serious accidents, victims have not only lost time and opportunities in their careers, but they may have also missed out on family events, had to replace their vehicles, and suffered physically from injuries.

The best thing you can do after the accident is contact a personal injury lawyer to see how strong your case is and whether you will be able to be compensated for your injuries. The following are the general steps you should take after the accident to try to restore your life to the way it was before the accident occurred.

Acknowledge Your Injuries

Your physical injuries might be the most expensive part of the accident. Even if you do not think your injuries are very serious, you should check with a doctor as soon as you can after the accident to ensure that you are not allowing injuries you did not realize you had to get worse with time. You might think you escaped the car crash with minor bruises, cuts, and sprains, only to find out later that you actually sustained a serious spinal injury.

When you begin visiting the doctor, start keeping track of your visits and what happens on them, what type of treatment you are receiving, and all of the costs attached. Even though a lawyer can request that your care providers release this information later, it will be most convenient for you to keep track of this early—especially if you have to see multiple care providers.

Find Evidence at the Accident Scene

If you do not have serious injuries right after the crash, you should gather information that will help you establish what happened. Prioritize getting the names, phone numbers, and addresses of the other parties involved in the crash and witnesses who saw the crash. Then, begin taking pictures of where the accident occurred and the damage that the vehicles received.

Someone should also call the police so that a crash report can be created. The officer will take down the information of everyone involved, and the crash report will become public record a few days after the accident.

Investigate Further

After you have addressed your serious injuries and learned who was at the scene of the accident, you can begin your preliminary investigation into who was at fault for the accident; the crash report may be helpful with this, since there is often a diagram to show how the accident happened. You can start reaching out to witnesses to the accident to establish the facts of the case. At this stage, you can evaluate the strength of your case and start thinking about whether you should sue the pizza delivery driver so that you can get compensated for your injuries.

Begin Your Lawsuit

Now that you can explain with some certainty what happened at the accident, a lawyer can help you with your next steps. The lawyer can provide professional insight to your case and let you know what your chances of success might be if you choose to sue the pizza delivery driver. If you do choose to sue, you must bring your claim within two years of the accident to comply with Arizona’s two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims.

An attorney can help you both with the logistics of filing your claim and the strategy you should use to try to get a settlement; to get a settlement, your lawyer must negotiate with the defendant to show that you deserve the amount for which you are asking. Clients and attorneys on both sides (plaintiffs and defendants) prefer settlement to trial because a jury can be unpredictable. However, if the pizza delivery driver and/or company that negligently harmed you is not settling for an appropriate amount for your case, you want a lawyer who is skillful and knowledgeable enough to go to trial and present your case effectively to a jury.

The appropriate amount of compensation for your settlement will depend on what kind of harm you suffered. In personal injury claims, the victim is usually entitled to economic damages and noneconomic damages. As we saw in the Domino’s lawsuit, sometimes at trial a court will award punitive damages to deter the dangerous activity in which the defendant engaged.


Whom should victims sue after pizza delivery accidents?

We have discussed some of the procedural steps that victims take with lawyers, but determining some of the substantive and strategic steps can be slightly more complicated. One of the first and most important decisions you must make is whom to sue. Attorneys help victims of pizza delivery accidents in Tucson by using their experience with similar cases to see whether you are likely to recover from the pizza delivery driver, the driver’s employer, or both. This will depend on who was at fault in the accident.

The Driver

Employers are responsible for the torts that their employees commit while they are working, and such torts include negligence, which we will discuss in more depth later. Vicarious liability is the legal responsibility that employers take for their employees, and employers must put themselves in the place of the employee for lawsuits against the employee.

However, there are ways that employers attempt to wiggle out of their vicarious liability. The employer might say that the driver was responsible for the crash because she was not working for the employer at the time the crash happened; this could be the case if the employee was on a personal errand, or a frolic, instead of working for the employer. If the employee was running an errand but still working for the employer, this is called a detour.

It can be difficult to distinguish between a frolic and a detour, but experienced personal injury lawyers can help you show whether the employer is liable for the driver’s actions. Our Zinda Law Group attorneys in Tucson have investigated numerous auto accidents, including plenty involving pizza delivery drivers, so you can trust that we can conduct thorough investigations and determine exactly who is liable for your injury.

The Pizzeria

The pizzeria is vicariously liable for the driver if the driver was working for the employer when the accident occurred, but there are other ways that the pizzeria may have negligently caused the victim’s injury. Pizzerias can negligently hire employees by not filtering applicants for certain requirements. If a pizzeria hired an employee who was not insured or who did not have a good driving record, then the pizzeria probably is not taking the appropriate amount of care.

After the hiring stage, the pizzeria could still fail to meet industry standards of care when training its employees. Employers often have peers train each other on how to perform a particular task. If the pizzeria had poor supervision and allowed the driver who caused the accident to be inadequately trained for the job, it may have been negligent.

There are countless other ways that a pizza company employer can fail to meet the necessary standards to prevent foreseeable harm. Just for starters, there are safety procedures and checks that pizzerias can enforce to discourage employees from driving carelessly.

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 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!

Under What law should a pizza delivery accident victim sue?

You have seen us mention the word “negligence” a few times throughout this article. That is because that is the legal theory under which you would likely sue as a victim of a pizza delivery crash. Victims of negligence must show four things to have a valid claim upon which relief can be granted.

1. The pizza delivery driver or company owed the victim a duty of care.

2. The pizza delivery driver or company breached that duty of care.

3. The victim sustained an injury for which he or she can receive compensation.

4. The injury the victim sustained was directly and proximately caused by the pizza delivery driver or company.

The Delivery Driver or Company’s Duty of Care

A legal duty of care develops out of certain kinds of relationships, and usually that duty of care is defined as the amount of care that a reasonable person would take under the same circumstances. A reasonable person attempts to prevent foreseeable harm; for example, a reasonable driver drives slower in icy weather in order to avoid sliding on the road and colliding with other vehicles. An unreasonable driver does not make adjustments for the weather and risks harming fellow motorists.

The pizza delivery driver is not the only one who owes the general public a duty of care: The pizzeria also must ensure that it is meeting industry standards of safety for its employees. That is, they should be aware of what other pizzerias are doing to avoid accidents and conduct similar procedures. For example, if other pizzerias limit the number of hours a delivery driver works in a week to prevent the driver from driving while fatigued, then that is likely the standard of care expected of the pizzeria involved in the accident.

When pizzerias and delivery drivers fail to keep up with the standard of care expected of them, they are said to have breached the standard of care.

The Victim’s Injury

The standard of care and the breach of the standard of care cover the first two elements of negligence, and the final two elements relate to the victim’s injury. The victim must have suffered an injury for which he or she can be compensated; typically, a physical injury will meet this element. Last, the victim must show that it was the pizza delivery driver or the pizzeria that caused the victim’s injury.
