Rideshare Accident Injury Compensation: How Much Is My Case Worth?

The compensation that responsible parties owe depends on the severity of your injuries, how the accident has changed your life, and whether you have an insurance policy.

Rideshare Accident Injury

Rideshare accidents can occur for several reasons, including distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence, and failing to obey traffic laws. Bad weather and road conditions may contribute to a crash.

You might hold several parties liable, including the rideshare driver and third-party drivers. Rideshare drivers, for example, must maintain their vehicles in safe operating condition. Rideshare companies must ensure that only qualified drivers use their app and that they comply with applicable laws.

Following a rideshare accident, you have the right to pursue compensation for damages. The law categorizes these damages as economic, non-economic, and punitive. 

Economic Damages 

Economic damages refer to the measurable medical costs that victims incur due to factors such as emergency care, diagnostic tests, and hospitalization. Some victims may need ongoing medical care, such as physical therapy and surgery. Economic damages also include lost income and property damage. We typically calculate these damages using documentation such as medical bills and receipts. 

Non-Economic Damages 

Non-economic damages refer to the non-monetary costs incurred by victims of accidents, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium.

We assess these subjective damages based on the influence the accident has had on your life. At the Aizenman Law Group, we know that insurance companies often push back against these intangible damages. We pursue full compensation for all your losses as allowed under Oklahoma law.

Punitive Damages

The courts may award punitive damages for particularly reckless or egregious behavior. These damages punish the defendant and deter similar behavior. The court determines the amount of punitive damages based on the nature of the defendant’s conduct, the degree of harm they caused, and the economic circumstances of the defendant. 

Where Do Rideshare Accidents Occur in Tulsa?

The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office does not publicly release data specific to rideshare accidents, but it does publish information about all reported motor vehicle accidents. Many of the areas in Tulsa frequented by Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies have a high rate of crashes.

In a recent year, accidents occurred at:

  • Tulsa State Fairgrounds, Gates 2 and 5
  • Nidiffer Shopping Center, East 21st South and South Yale Avenue
  • OSU Medical Center, South Houston Avenue and West Seventh Street South
  • The University of Tulsa, along East 11th Street South and South Harvard Avenue
  • Many of the major roadways through the city, including U.S. Hwy 412 and Interstate 244

Statistics from the same year show that more car accidents occur on Friday late afternoons and early evenings than on any other day of the week. During these hours, many people use rideshare companies to travel to events and parties.

Rideshare Accident Injury Claims in Oklahoma: An Overview

Ridesharing has become an integral part of Tulsa’s transportation system. These services are very convenient, but they can also cause accidents. The rise of rideshare accidents in Tulsa reflects a concerning trend across the nation. As the rideshare industry continues to grow, so does the complexity of understanding liability in the case of an accident.  

We Tailor Our Services to Your Specific Legal Needs

Aizenman Law Group provides a range of legal services designed to support victims of rideshare accidents.

Our comprehensive approach includes:

  • Evaluating the accident scene.
  • Investigating all parties involved.
  • Liaising with medical professionals.
  • Calculating the true cost of your injuries and loss.
  • Negotiating with insurance companies.

If necessary, we will also represent you in court to ensure your voice is heard and your rights are protected.

We Hold Liable Parties Responsible for Their Actions

We start your claim by establishing responsibility for the accident. Liability in rideshare accidents depends on the status of the rideshare app at the time of the accident, the behavior of the driver, and the specifics of the rideshare company’s insurance policy.

If a driver was not logged into the app at the time of the accident, the insurance company may be primarily responsible for damages. If the driver was picking up a passenger or already carrying one, however, you can hold the rideshare company’s insurers liable.

We Pursue Rideshare Accident Settlements 

Victims of rideshare accidents often face significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges. You must understand your rights in these situations. You need to know that you may seek compensation for your damages—medical expenses, lost income, diminished future earnings, physical pain, emotional suffering, and more.

Aizenman Law Group Fights Back Against Insurance Claim Denials 

Receiving fair and just compensation after a rideshare accident is not always easy. Insurance companies often employ tactics to reduce the claim amounts they are liable for. Rideshare companies classify drivers as independent contractors, making them hard to sue. 

At Aizenman Law Group, we understand the details of rideshare companies’ policies and can challenge the tactics used by insurance companies to reduce claim amounts. We remain steadfast in our resolve to ensure that rideshare accident victims receive the compensation they deserve.

3 Important Steps to Take After a Tulsa Rideshare Accident

When you hire an attorney at Aizenman Law Group, they will take over the legal aspects of your claim. To help us build a strong case for you, it is important you take the following three actions:  

  • Contact Our Office as Soon as Possible

There is a statute of limitations that applies to rideshare accident injury claims. Oklahoma law requires us to file your claim by a deadline, and we need ample time to work on your case. You don’t need to wait to receive a denial or inadequate offer from the insurance company before you contact us. In fact, you can call us the day of your accident after you receive emergency medical treatment.

  • Follow Through With Your Medical Treatment Plan 

Depending on the severity and nature of your injuries, your doctor may recommend physical therapy, surgery, medications, or other interventions. Deviating from your medical care team’s recommendations or delaying treatments can weaken your position when pursuing compensation. 

Following your doctor’s advice also puts you on the path to physical and emotional recovery. Our attorneys can use your medical records, including doctors’ reports, to support your rideshare accident injury claim.

  • Obtain a Copy of the Accident Report

In Oklahoma, the police record of an accident is called a collision report. This document contains important details about the accident, such as the date and time of the crash and any other parties involved. We use this report as the foundation of your injury claim. You can obtain a copy of your collision report by contacting the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. Our lawyers can also obtain this report on your behalf.
