Frequently Asked Questions
Can I seek compensation from the rideshare company?
Yes, most rideshare companies offer liability coverage for accidents involving vehicles driving for the company. The amount of coverage that the rideshare company will offer depends on the circumstances at the time of the accident.
Typically, the maximum amount of coverage is available if the accident occurs while the rideshare driver is driving to pick up a passenger or is transporting a passenger. There may be a lower amount of coverage available if the driver is signed into the rideshare application on his or her mobile phone, but is not picking up or transporting a passenger. Coverage is usually not available if the driver is not logged into the application; in that case, the driver’s own personal or commercial auto insurance policy is the only liability coverage available.
What if another driver was at fault for the accident?
The at-fault driver’s own auto insurance policy would be the primary source of compensation for any injuries or damage suffered in the accident. However, if you are a driver for a rideshare company or a passenger in a rideshare vehicle, some rideshare companies, such as Lyft and Uber, do provide uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage if the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage is insufficient to cover your damages.
Do I need an attorney to pursue a claim for compensation following a rideshare accident?
Although you don’t have to hire an attorney to pursue a claim for compensation, you should get legal representation if you have been injured in a rideshare accident. People who retain legal counsel to pursue compensation usually get about three times more compensation than people who do not hire an attorney.
Additionally, even though many rideshare companies provide liability coverage, they may try to avoid or deny liability to an injured passenger or a person injured by the rideshare vehicle. Therefore, individuals can find it difficult to obtain any compensation from the rideshare company.
The rideshare accident lawyers of The Bourassa Law Group can help you identify who may be liable to you for compensation and can fight to get you maximum compensation for your injuries and other damages.

Frequently asked questions
The legal definition of a personal injury is when someone’s failure to use reasonable care in a particular situation results in another person’s physical, emotional, or psychological injury. Personal injury cases often rely on the elements of negligence to prove the responsible party’s actions were the cause of the other party’s injuries.
The length of a personal injury case depends on the type of case and various factors, such as the severity of the injury sustained and the duration of necessary treatment. A car accident case might take six months to resolve, while a wrongful death lawsuit could take two years. It all depends on the circumstances surrounding the case.
No. Whether you got hurt in a car accident or on someone else’s property, you should never speak with their liability insurance company about the claim. They try to save money whenever possible and could attempt to trick you into accepting a low settlement amount or intimidate you into dropping the case. Your Denver personal injury lawyer will handle all communication on your behalf.
It depends. A vast majority of personal injury cases settle out of court. When we file a claim with the insurance company, we’ll submit evidence that proves you deserve compensation for your injuries. Sometimes the insurer is willing to settle. Other times, they deny the claim or provide a settlement much lower than you deserve. Under those circumstances, we will file a lawsuit and take the case to court.
Mediation is a step during a lawsuit where both sides meet to try to reach an agreement. The mediator listens to the arguments on both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s sides and attempts to resolve the issue. If they can reach an agreement, they will settle out of court, and the case will get dismissed. If they can’t resolve the matter, the case will proceed to trial.
