Ridesharing may seem like a fairly new and modern method of transportation but in reality, forms of ridesharing have been a part of American culture since the 1900’s. In the past, ridesharing was fraught with communication limitations which made the service inconvenient and hard to use.

With advances in communication technology like smartphones, social media networks, and lightning fast internet, a lot of the obstacles that kept ridesharing from becoming a viable form of transportation in the past are now no longer an issue.

Ridesharing services such as the ones provided by Uber and Lyft are expanding across the United States. According to research reported by Zippia, the use of ridesharing apps have doubled since 2015, and as of 2021, ridesharing is an industry valued at over $85 billion dollars.

Unfortunately, along with the popularity of ridesharing comes inherent dangers and risks associated with the use of the service. Due to the variety of business structures, laws regulating liability and insurance requirements are still evolving.

If you have been in an accident involving a ridesharing service you need to consult an experienced rideshare lawyer as soon as possible. A lawyer with expertise in this developing industry can help you navigate the complicated legal terrain and help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

    Ridesharing: What Are The Risks?

    Ridesharing has many positive benefits, both to individuals and to the environment. Commuters are able to travel to and from destinations even if they can’t afford a car or simply choose not to own one. Frequently cheaper than taxis and more user friendly than public transportation, ridesharing can be a great transportation option.

    On the down side, ridesharing also has its share of risks. While safety should always be paramount for both drivers and riders, the reality is customers are accepting or offering a ride to a complete stranger and there are no 100% guarantees of safety while using a ridesharing service.


    Potential dangers while using a ridesharing service include but are not limited to:


    When a ridesharing experience goes wrong, your whole life can be affected. You need the services of a rideshare accident lawyer to help you put the pieces back together and ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

    An experienced rideshare accident lawyer is up to date on all of the current laws that may apply to your case and can find the best path forward to a successful settlement on your behalf.

    Who Is Responsible For Damages In A Rideshare Accident?

    Unfortunately there isn’t a simple answer to this question. Liability in ridesharing accidents is determined by the evidence and may be assigned differently depending on what state you are in and what statutes are currently on the books.

    Depending on the details of the accident, one or more people or entities, may be found liable for damages. Potential parties that may be found liable include but are not limited to:

    • The rideshare driver
    • The operator of the other vehicle or vehicles involved in the accident
    • Vehicle mechanic
    • Vehicle manufacturer
    • The rideshare company
    • Liability may be shared if both drivers are found to be partially at fault


    Your rideshare accident attorney will investigate the cause of the accident and gather evidence to prove liability. Types of evidence commonly presented in rideshare accident cases includes:

    • Police accident reports
    • Photographic and video evidence
    • Eyewitness testimony
    • Cell phone records
    • Expert testimony
    • Medical reports
    • Accident reconstruction results


    Determining who is liable for damages in a rideshare accident is a critical aspect of this type of personal injury case. Your Big Auto rideshare accident lawyer can evaluate your claim, examine all of the evidence and assist you in achieving the best possible outcome.

    How Can A Rideshare Accident Lawyer Help Me?

    Accident victims are not required to have a lawyer in order to seek compensation but it is likely in your best interests to do so. Rideshare accidents can be very complicated. They may involve multiple vehicles, shared liability and some confusion regarding whose insurance company should be contacted.

    Contacting an experienced rideshare accident lawyer as soon as possible after the incident is the best way to ensure you don’t disqualify yourself from the possibility of maximum compensation for your losses.


    A Big Auto rideshare accident attorney can help you in the following ways:

    • Evaluate your claim and determine if it is in your best interest to pursue compensation. This initial consultation is free and can save you valuable time and money.
    • File your claim and all paperwork correctly and within the time limits or statute of limitations.
    • Compile evidence to prove that driver negligence caused the accident.
    • Correctly identify all the parties who are responsible for the accident either fully or partially.
    • Negotiate with the appropriate insurance company and shield you from low-ball offers and high pressure tactics that are sometimes used by insurance adjusters to bully a victim into settling for less than you deserve.
    • If a fair settlement cannot be agreed upon, your rideshare lawyer will represent you in court where the evidence will be presented. Having a lawyer by your side ensures that your rights are not violated and that all procedures are done correctly and fairly.


    Securing legal representation as early in the claims process as possible helps avoid mistakes that could limit or even eliminate your ability to receive the compensation you deserve.

    Common Rideshare Accident Injuries

    The types of injuries victims of rideshare accidents sustain is determined by a variety of factors that are specific to each individual case.

    However, common injuries reported in these accidents include but are not limited to:

    • Whiplash and other neck injuries
    • Broken bones
    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Spinal injuries
    • Lacerations
    • Hematomas
    • Muscle and ligament damage
    • Burns
    • Scarring
    • Paralysis
    • Nerve damage
    • Other injuries


    If you’ve been injured in a rideshare accident due to the negligence of another party, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. Long-term pain, discomfort and, depending on the severity of the accident, permanent disability, are often the result of these types of accidents, leaving the victim and their family devastated.

    You don’t have to try to put the pieces of your life back together alone. A rideshare accident lawyer can fight for justice on your behalf and hold the party or parties responsible for your injuries liable for their actions.
