What You Need to Know About Atlanta Rideshare Accidents
The causes of rideshare accidents are pretty much the same as any other car accident: distracted driving, speeding, failure to yield, poor road conditions, etc. But the way these types of personal injury lawsuits work is different and more complicated because there are multiple parties involved. As Atlanta rideshare lawyers, who we file the lawsuit against depends on what the driver was doing at the time of the accident. Here are the three potential rideshare accident scenarios:
The good news is this: when you are filing a lawsuit against the rideshare company because of an accident with an on-duty driver or as a passenger, there is more money available to you than when the lawsuit is just against the individual driver. Put differently, if warranted you can exhaust two policy limits including the $1 Million rideshare companies has in place for their on-duty drivers that get into accidents. But that does NOT mean that these rideshare companies will just hand the money over to you. Insurance companies are in the business of saving money, not giving it away and when it comes to rideshare accidents, we are now dealing with two insurance companies that will fight to pay you as little as possible. This is one of the many reasons you need to get in touch with an experienced Atlanta rideshare lawyer as soon as possible.
