Legal Options for Rideshare Accident Victims

When injured in a rideshare accident, victims have legal options to pursue compensation for their damages. The negligent party may be held responsible for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses resulting from the accident.

Liability in Rideshare Accidents in Indiana

Determining liability in a rideshare accident involves understanding the unique circumstances of each case. In Indiana, liability may fall on multiple parties:

  • Rideshare Driver: If the rideshare driver's negligence caused the accident, they may be held liable for the damages.
  • Other Motorists: Negligent actions by other motorists on the road can contribute to or directly cause a rideshare accident.
  • Rideshare Company: Under certain circumstances, the rideshare company may share liability, especially if they failed to ensure driver competence or disregarded safety regulations.

Our skilled attorneys thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident to identify all potentially liable parties.

Tactics Used by Rideshare Companies

Rideshare companies often employ tactics to minimize their liability and reduce payouts. They may attempt to:

  • Shift blame onto their driver.
  • Argue that their driver was not actively working at the time of the accident.
  • Claim their drivers are independent contractors.
  • Exploit insurance loopholes to reduce coverage for accidents.
  • Offer quick settlements in an attempt to avoid larger payouts that victims may deserve.

Our legal team is well-versed in these tactics and will work diligently to counteract them, ensuring your rights and interests are protected.

  • Contact Law Enforcement: Report the accident to law enforcement, ensuring an official record of the incident.
  • Gather Information: Collect information from all parties involved, including names, contact details, and insurance information.
  • Document the Scene: Take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and any relevant road signs or signals.
  • Do Not Admit Fault: Avoid admitting fault or making statements that could be used against you later.
  • Contact an Attorney: Consult with an experienced rideshare accident attorney before engaging with insurance companies or the rideshare company.
