HOW WILL AN ATTORNEY HELP THIS CASE?

Rideshare accidents can become complex, especially when dealing with insurance carriers. Your attorney will have the resources necessary to prove liability and secure the compensation you need. They will:

  • Obtain all evidence related to the rideshare accident, including accident reports, eyewitness accounts, video surveillance, the driving history of the rideshare driver, and more.
  • Ensure your medical records are examined by a trusted medical professional who can help calculate your total losses.
  • Negotiate with all parties involved, including the rideshare company and insurance carrier, to obtain a fair settlement on your behalf.

DO RIDESHARE ACCIDENTS HAPPEN OFTEN?

We know that there were 1,504 total traffic crash fatalities during the latest reporting year in GA and that there are approximately 150,000 people injured in this state due to crashes each year. While we have no solid data on how many of these incidents involved rideshare services, we know they happen.

The simple truth is that rideshare drivers are just like the rest of us. They have no specialized driver training, and they are using their personal vehicles.

Securing compensation in these cases can become a battle between insurance carriers. Any time a rideshare driver is not “signed in and working,” their personal insurance carrier is responsible for damages and injuries if they are at fault in a crash.

  • If the rideshare driver is signed into the “app” to work but does not have a fare, their personal insurance carrier is responsible for damage and injury expenses. However, the rideshare company’s carriers may possibly kick in if the personal carrier’s limits are exhausted.
  • If the rideshare driver is signed into the “app” to work and has a passenger or is on the way to pick up a passenger, then the rideshare company insurance policies (usually $1 million in liability coverage) kicks in for those involved.
