Ridesharing Accidents Caused By Other Drivers

Other drivers on the road can cause a ridesharing accident, whether they are operating a rideshare service or are an everyday commuter.

The first thing you need to do is report the accident through the ridesharing app you used. Otherwise, the company will not be aware that it happened. Your insurance and legal claim will be denied if there are no records.

You must remember several key details after the accident that will be used in the following legal proceedings. That can be overwhelming because you just got through an accident. To have the best chance of preserving the details, you must consult a professional immediately.

Visit a medical professional to get treated for injuries you sustained. They can also check for any trauma that is not immediately visible. The checkup would provide documented evidence of all injuries you suffered from the accident. That will play a significant role in confirming qualifying injuries for your claim.

Qualifying Injuries for a Claim

Most severe injuries sustained because of another driver's negligence will be eligible for a claim. The most common examples include:

  • Broken bones
  • Injuries to your spine or the spinal cord
  • Lacerations to the body
  • Burns on your skin
  • Trauma to the brain
  • Orthopedic injuries and trauma

Aside from physical injuries, you can claim psychological trauma caused by the accident.

If you need help in collating the details to build your case, call Speaks Law Firm. Our Wilmington rideshare accident lawyer can guide you in building your case. Contact us to set up a consultation.

Damages You Can Recover

There are three main considerations to establish after a rideshare accident:

  1. The at-fault party owes you a standard of care.
  2. The at-fault party breached that duty of care.
  3. You were injured because of that breach.

You are eligible for a claim to recover compensatory damages to cover medical expenses, disability accommodations, lost wages, and other economic damages resulting from the ridesharing accident.

Hire an Experienced Rideshare Accident Lawyer

As your ridesharing accident lawyer, our job is to establish the facts and build a case to show why you deserve compensatory damages. The legal process can be difficult, especially if the other party denies any fault.

In this situation, you need a dedicated team who will fight for your rights. We care about your case and will use our experience and knowledge to provide you with sound legal service.

We’ll begin with a consultation to understand your side of the story and establish the facts of the case. From there, our team will create a strategy for approaching the case.
