GrubHub partners with drivers who fulfill the necessary requirements, retaining them as independent contractors. While this can give drivers the freedom to set their schedules and work little or as much as they like, it also means that GrubHub does not have the legal responsibility to provide auto insurance coverage for drivers.

As a result, GrubHub does NOT currently provide commercial auto insurance coverage for its drivers.

Effectively, this means that, if a GrubHub driver is at-fault for an accident, the coverage(s) that (s)he has elected to take out and maintain will likely be the only one(s) that may come into play.
