Delivery drivers are the backbone of much of our consumer behavior. Our country depends on delivery drivers for everything from groceries, fast food, furniture, and any other transaction you can think of. However, delivery drivers face heightened risks of injuries each day. At DiMarco Araujo Montevideo, our San Bernardino delivery driver workers’ compensation lawyers are dedicated to helping injured workers secure the compensation they are entitled to. There are many delivery drivers on the roadways of San Bernardino, including those who work for Amazon, FedEX, UPS, Uber Eats, DoorDash, Grubhub, Postmates, etc. All of these workers deserve protection.
COVID-19 has changed the way of life for most people in this country. Stay at home orders in California have forced many people to stay indoors, which has led to an increase in online shopping as well as the need for deliveries of fast food, groceries, medications, and more.
Delivery drivers face an increased risk of contracting the coronavirus. These workers are in constant contact with those who may have this illness. Delivery drivers should be entitled to workers’ compensation for any injury or illness sustained on-the-job.
At DiMarco Araujo Montevideo, we regularly help delivery drivers secure compensation after sustaining a wide range of injuries. It is not uncommon for us to help clients who have sustained the following:
Delivery drivers face unpredictable work environments every day. Importantly, car accidents are one of the main risks the delivery drivers face, and these incidents can lead to severe injuries. Delivery drivers are also responsible for loading and unloading their vehicles, which can lead to overexertion injuries. When making a delivery, a delivery driver faces increased slip and fall risks as they traverse various outdoor obstacles and various flooring materials.
Most individuals who sustain a work injury will not have the resources or legal experience necessary to properly conduct a full investigation into their case. A San Bernardino delivery driver workers’ compensation attorney will be able to obtain all evidence necessary to establish a link between a workplace incident and your injury.
In many cases, an employer may try to say that a delivery driver is not an actual “employee,” but rather an independent contractor, which could significantly impact and injured worker’s ability to recover compensation. An attorney will strive to show that the worker was an actual employee and deserves compensation.
If you or a loved one are a delivery driver who has sustained an on-the-job injury, you should be entitled to compensation. However, the team at DiMarco Araujo Montevideo is ready to help if your claim has been denied or delayed. Our goal is to secure any compensation you may be entitled to, which can include:
If your injury was caused by a third party, you could be entitled to additional compensation as well. If you need a San Bernardino delivery driver workers’ compensation lawyer, you can contact us for a free consultation by clicking here or by calling (909) 436-4610.
