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.
Most severe injuries sustained because of another driver's negligence will be eligible for a claim. The most common examples include:
Aside from physical injuries, you can claim psychological trauma caused by the accident.
