If you or a family member suffered an Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare accident in Delaware, you might be wondering how you’ll get compensated. You could file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer or even pursue compensation through a lawsuit.
Our personal injury firm can help you explore other methods, as well, such as pursuing your damages through the rideshare company’s insurance. In a free consultation, we’ll tell you more about these options and about working with a Delaware rideshare accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow.
How Do I Get Compensated After a Delaware Rideshare Accident?
Since your car or rideshare passenger accident, you may have recognized you have a number of damages, including many physical and financial damages. Your entire family may be feeling the effects of the incident. You’re entitled to compensation, and you’re probably considering filing claims through the at-fault party’s insurer.
You may also be able to file a claim through the rideshare driver’s insurance or even the rideshare company’s insurance. Generally, Uber and Lyft drivers and the companies themselves have liability insurance for cases like yours. Such insurance may cover additional damages and up to higher amounts for these damages.
Yet another option may be to sue the rideshare driver or company. This may be your best option if you have many and very expensive damages. You may be able to recover more financial damages and all of your other damages through suing, but it can be very difficult for a claimant to file and defend a lawsuit themselves.

Damages After a Fatal Accident
You may have lost a family member in a fatal rideshare accident. No family should have to endure what yours is enduring right now.
Your family may struggle to cope in your loved one’s absence. Some of your losses, such as your loved one’s medical bills and income, may warrant compensation. You can seek those losses with a wrongful death claim or suit. Our Delaware fatal car accident lawyer can help seek those losses and others that apply.

Should I Hire a Delaware Rideshare Accident Lawyer?
There are many reasons to consider hiring a rideshare accident lawyer from our firm. For you, the main reason may be that you wouldn’t have to worry about any legal matters at all. Instead, you’ll be able to tend to other matters, like your recovery and your family. Our lawyers will tend to legal matters for you and, if your lawyer recovers compensation for you, relieve you of any medical/property-related debts.
If you hire one of our lawyers, they will take care of the following:
- Determining your damages: Our lawyers can identify all of your damages, including intangible damages that can be difficult to identify and future financial damages that can be difficult to anticipate. Our lawyers will determine which losses warrant compensation.
- Proving your damages: To do this, our lawyers will seek out and show documentation of your damages, such as your medical records.
- Determining who’s liable: To determine whether the liable party is the rideshare driver, the rideshare company, or even another party, our lawyers will seek out evidence of liability, such as vehicle black box data.
- Proving who’s liable: To accomplish this, our lawyers will have to show evidence of liability and also show the elements of negligence, which are a duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages.
- Exploring your options: These could include filing claims through your insurance, filing a claim through the rideshare driver’s insurance, and/or suing the driver or the company.
- Negotiating your settlements: Our lawyers can negotiate with insurers for all of your due damages, including those damages the insurers don’t typically cover, and, if an insurer doesn’t negotiate in good faith, our lawyers can threaten to sue them and/or their client.
- Negotiating your verdict: If negotiations with insurers don’t resolve your case, our lawyers can litigate the case by filing a lawsuit and seeking a fair verdict.
