Who are Common Injury Victims In Rideshare Accidents?

Any time a rideshare accident occurs, it can be easy to get confused about the situation that lies ahead and how you can proceed with legal action. Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that must be considered when pursuing compensation of which you must be aware.

First, though, it’s imperative to know who can be a victim in a rideshare accident. Knowing this can give you an idea of what legal rights and options you may have moving forward. Here are a few of the most common parties who are considered victims in rideshare accidents and what action can be taken.

Injured Pedestrians

Pedestrians are some of the most common—and sometimes most severely injured—in rideshare accidents. They don’t have the same protection that other motorists have and they’re often vulnerable to catastrophic injuries caused by the collision.

Much of the time, when a driver is distracted, unaware of his or her surroundings, and scanning for passengers, they can run stop signs or traffic signals. This can create a serious problem for pedestrians crossing intersections.

Other Drivers

Much like any vehicle accident, other drivers can be severely injured when a rideshare driver is negligent. If he or she is looking at a cell phone, it can create a head-on or rear-end collision. Drivers in the other vehicle can suffer significant harm and can take legal action for the negligence involved.

Rideshare Passengers

Many take rideshare vehicles to be safe and avoid drinking and driving. Unfortunately, rideshare passengers can also be injured when the driver is negligent and causes a serious accident. Part of this is a result of the distractions that drivers face when accepting or declining new fares.
