A takeaway can be one of life’s great pleasures. The feeling of kicking back, relaxing and having your food delivered to your door after a long day at work or as a treat at the weekend is something many people in the UK have become accustomed to.
People enjoy takeaways so much that the value of the takeaway food sector has grown from £2.4 billion per year to around £4.2 billion per year in the past decade.
In 2017 an estimated 673 million takeaway meals were delivered to households and businesses around the UK by workers using cars, motorbikes, mopeds and bicycles, making the food delivery driver and rider a vital cog in the UK’s economy.
However, not all deliveries were successfully completed due to the fact that some delivery drivers and riders were involved in an accident whilst working.
With takeaway deliveries on the increase giving rise to more delivery drivers and riders being employed, an increasing number of them are at risk of being involved in an accident.
We believe that we as a firm, who have a wealth of experience in dealing with clients who have been involved in a variety of road traffic accidents, have a duty to help each driver and rider protect their interests and that they should be able to begin a personal injury claim easily and as soon as possible in the aftermath of their accident.
It’s because of the reasons outlined above that we have developed and launched Takeaway Delivery Assist, our brand new app tailor-made for delivery drivers.
It’s an essential tool for anyone who delivers food for a living and offers each driver a seamless way to begin their personal injury claim from their phone at the scene of the accident or at another time they wish.
By downloading and registering their details in the app, a delivery driver who has the app installed and is involved in a road traffic accident can potentially have our team begin the claims process within just a few hours of the accident itself, allowing them to focus on what matters most, their recovery.
As well as housing the personal details of the food delivery driver or rider, the app also lets them register other vital information that could strengthen any potential personal injury claim.
