How an attorney can help in a rideshare accident claim or lawsuit

Ridesharing accidents can be complex for a variety of reasons. For example, determining liability can be difficult, especially if multiple parties are involved. Other complexities include:

  • Insurance coverage: Ascertaining which insurance policy to file a claim with, whether it’s the rideshare company’s or the driver’s personal policy, can be confusing.
  • Rideshare driver status: If the driver was actively transporting a passenger or en route to pick one up during the accident, their status as an independent ride-sharing company contractor might complicate the legal process.
  • Comparative negligence: If the victim is found to be partially responsible for the accident, it may impact the amount of damages they can recover.

An experienced attorney can help navigate these complexities by reviewing and interpreting complex insurance policies, investigating the accident, gathering evidence, identifying liable parties, and negotiating with insurance companies on the victim’s behalf. They can also provide guidance and representation during any legal proceedings.
