The Newest development In California Law
Assembly Bill No. 5 went into law in September of 2019. It became effective on January 1, 2020. Governor Gavin Newsom signed new state legislation, AB5, into law. AB5 affects independent contractors throughout California, radically changing 30 years of worker classification and reclassifying millions as employees. It significantly reforms the future of independent workforces in California. With this new California law many delivery drivers are classified as employees rather than independent contractors. If you’re stuck in a delivery accident, there are ways to pursue damages by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. Each case depends on the company, driver, and state’s laws.
As deliveries continue to gain traction in consumers, the rise of delivery drivers contributing to traffic accidents is increasing. Delivery drivers have to use their time efficiently to deliver packages on time, which can create a stressful environment for the delivery driver and surrounding drivers. At the same time, this job requires many skills, including swiftly changing lanes, finding homes in the dark, looking at the GPS, driving long distances, and navigating through narrow and busy streets. These various driving maneuvers can lead to vehicular accidents, whether you’re at fault or not.
Delivery accidents can be overwhelming and complicated, which is why The Accident Guys have the knowledge and legal experience to guide you through it all. Whether or not you’re injured, we recommend you call us as soon as possible to get started on your claim.
