Rideshare Accidents

Pursue Essential Damages with Our Maryland Car Accident Attorneys

In the last ten years, ridesharing companies have completely revolutionized the transportation industry. With just a few clicks on a company’s mobile app, Americans across the country can hire convenient and cost-effective rides. Unfortunately, popular demand has led these companies, including Uber and Lyft, to hire inexperienced and unsafe drivers just to make a profit.

If you’ve been injured in an accident involving a rideshare driver, contact the Maryland car accident lawyers at the Law Office of Robert Castro, P.A. Any motor vehicle accident can lead to catastrophic physical and cognitive injuries that necessitate expensive medical treatments and rehabilitative services. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to secure damages after a rideshare accident due to complex insurance matters and liability issues. As your medical bills start piling up, it’s imperative that you turn to an experienced law firm as soon as possible. Our legal team has a comprehensive understanding of state and federal traffic laws and the legal nuances associated with rideshare cases. With our help, you can recover compensation that facilitates your physical and financial recovery.

Contact our Maryland car accident lawyers at (301) 870-1200 if you’ve been injured in a rideshare accident.

Pursuing Damages

Due to a legal loophole, most car accident survivors choose to file claims against the at-fault drivers instead of the ridesharing companies. This is because ridesharing companies hire their drivers as “independent contractors,” not employees. This allows their insurance providers to reject most liability claims. However, pursuing compensation against a ridesharing company isn’t impossible. You just need to hire a skilled and experienced attorney.

You may be able to collect damages from the following parties after an accident:

  • The rideshare driver
  • The ridesharing company
  • The third-party driver (if applicable)

Depending on your specific circumstances, you may be able to benefit from the ridesharing company’s uninsured/underinsured insurance coverage. If the at-fault driver’s insurance policy doesn’t fully cover your injury-related losses, you can pursue additional damages from the company.

If your lawsuit is successful, you may be able to recover the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Professional care services
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Property damage
  • Non-economic damages
