NC Rideshare Accident Lawyer

Ridesharing has become a popular option to get around Wilmington and other communities in North Carolina. It is convenient because you no longer have to worry about parking and driving yourself. With just a few taps on your smartphone, you can get a car to pick you up and drop you off at your destination.

Things go smoothly most of the time. But no matter how careful your driver is, accidents can happen. If you are involved in one, you need someone to represent your rights. That is where rideshare accident lawyers come in.

The team at Speaks Law Firm has the relevant experience in analyzing and guiding you about your rights in this situation.

  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs that impair their ability to operate the vehicle
  • Disobeying traffic laws
  • Taking on more passengers than safely allowed by law

If you get into an accident with the causes mentioned above, contact the team at Speaks Law Firm. Then, schedule a free consultation with an experienced Wilmington rideshare accident lawyer to discuss your claim.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I see a doctor if I feel fine? (view full answer)
Always seek immediate medical attention after an auto accident. Internal injuries don’t always have symptoms. Besides, if you don’t seek treatment, the insurance company may later argue that you have exaggerated or faked your injuries. Have you been injured in a North Carolina auto accident? At Speaks Law Firm, we’ll speak for you. Call us […]
What if I suspect the accident was partly my fault? (view full answer)
Never admit fault. Emotions run high in situations like these. You’re likely under stress and not in the right state of mind to evaluate the accident objectively. Let the police investigate the accident. If the evidence shows that it wasn’t your fault, your Wilmington personal injury lawyer from Speaks Law Firm can advise whether you […]
Should I talk to an auto accident lawyer before talking to the adjusters? (view full answer)
You should speak to an experienced Wilmington auto accident attorney before approaching the insurance adjusters. Insurance companies are not your friends: Their job is to optimize costs and turn a profit, not pay you fair compensation. To reduce your payout or avoid making one altogether, the adjusters may try to blame you for the accident. […]
Will I have to go to court to seek compensation? (view full answer)
You will not necessarily go to court. If the other driver is indisputably at fault, the insurance company may offer a reasonable settlement. However, if the insurers make a low offer or argue that you were at fault, your auto accidents attorney may need to take the case to trial. At Speaks Law Firm, we […]
