The COVID-19 pandemic utterly changed the landscape of the food delivery industry in the United States. As restaurants across the country closed their doors to in-house dining, the proliferation of food delivery drivers on the road illustrated the unanticipated spike in the food delivery business. Uber reported in 2020 that they had seen a tenfold increase in restaurants signing up to utilize the delivery services of Uber Eats. Other companies such as Grubhub, Postmates, and DoorDash, grocery delivery services like Instacart, and private restaurant delivery drivers became ubiquitous, and continue to operate in record numbers. The combined revenue of Grubhub, Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Postmates between April and September of 2020 was more than twice what it was for the same period in 2019.

Following an auto collision, determining fault can pose a great challenge. No two car accidents are the same, and the complexity and abundance of factors involved in a vehicular wreck can make it difficult to properly hold the responsible party accountable for their negligence. Investigations into medical and police reports can provide supportive evidence, but a reliable account from a credible eyewitness is one of the best ways to support a claim.

It is not enough to simply have an eyewitness account of the accident—the credibility of the witness must also be taken into consideration. Witness credibility is essential in all legal situations, but a witness’ statement can be especially central to a car accident case, in which the word of one driver is weighed against the other. If you have been involved in an auto collision, you need to know that you have the support and expertise of a law firm thoroughly familiar with car accident law. A proficient legal advocate will know how to use a qualified witness’ statement to effectively support your claim, and will further be able to ascertain which witnesses are satisfactorily credible in their account of the incident.
