Q: Im not sure what type of lawyer I need
My truck was totaled by a door dash driver that fell asleep at the wheel. the trunk was not occupied, uninsured, and parked out side of my home. the driver is insured by USAA and they refused to pay due to her being on the clock with door dash and door dash with not contact me back. this incident occurred a little over a year ago and i have had no success of resolving the situation
A: You need to promptly sue the driver and DoorDash. The driver's personal automobile liability insurance will not cover the damage because, as indicated, the driver was operating his vehicle for a commercial purpose at the time of the collision. However, DoorDash has a commercial motor vehicle insurance policy that insures its drivers while they are delivering orders for damage or injury to third parties.
