Holding Corporations Liable: Ride-Sharing and Delivery Accidents

While ride-sharing and delivery companies often classify their drivers as "independent contractors," they may still be held accountable under "respondeat superior" when drivers cause harm during their job. This doctrine makes companies vicariously liable for drivers' actions on the job, enabling victims to pursue actions against both the drivers and the companies.

Elevated Risk: Hazards of Ride-Sharing and Delivery Drivers

As ride-sharing and delivery services gain popularity, the number of such vehicles on the road has surged, leading to an increase in accidents. Common hazards linked to these drivers include:

  • Distracted Driving: Frequent phone use for navigation diverts their attention from the road.
  • Speeding: Incentives to complete trips quickly may lead to reckless driving.
  • Bikes and Scooters: Delivery drivers on bicycles and scooters can cause collisions.

Seeking Compensation: What's Possible?

Seasoned attorneys understand how to gather evidence to secure various damages, from property damage and medical expenses to future lost wages and intangible losses like pain and suffering. Such comprehensive compensation accounts for emotional distress, anxiety, and difficulties in resuming daily activities post-accident.
