Establishing Damages in Your Grove City, OH Rideshare Accident Case
You may have many damages you’ve suffered and incurred. Right now, you might still be in pain due to your injuries, and you might even be in some medical debt. There may be additional damages, such as some non-monetary damages you may not have identified yet. A lawyer from our firm can help to identify these damages so you can claim them in your personal injury case.
Your lawyer can also help you get proof of your damages. For instance, your lawyer could refer you to a medical expert or another expert our firm trusts, and that expert could provide you with a statement of your damages. Such a statement would help to establish the damages’ legitimacy with the insurance company.
Something else that would help to establish legitimacy is a professional valuation of your damages. Your lawyer can provide this valuation and give monetary value to your non-monetary damages. Your lawyer will use a valuation method insurance companies often approve of.
The Damages in Your Case
You can expect your lawyer to fight hard for all of your due damages. Your lawyer may be able to recover:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma due to the incident and your injuries
- Medical bills and bills for physical therapy
- Vehicle repair bills and bills for other damaged/destroyed personal property
- Income loss and loss of income-earning potential

Establishing Liability in Your Grove City Rideshare Case
So you can get compensated for your damages, your lawyer will have to identify the party liable for compensating you. This party could be the rideshare company, the driver, or another party. To establish the other party’s liability, your lawyer will need evidence, such as:
- A witness’s cell phone photos of the accident scene
- An expert witness’s statement about the incident
- A traffic camera’s footage of the accident
- The authorities’ accident report
- The rideshare company’s app data
- The vehicle’s event data recorder information
Evidence won’t be enough to fully establish liability in your case. Your lawyer will also need to show the insurance company or a judge that:
- The other party owed you the responsibility of acting with care.
- The other party violated that responsibility.
- The other party’s actions resulted in the accident.
- You have accident-related injuries and damages.
If your case involves loss of life, your lawyer will do absolutely everything necessary in order to establish the other party’s liability and hold them to account for your family’s damages.

Negotiating Your Grove City, OH Rideshare Accident Settlement
This may be the most complicated task in your case. Your lawyer will likely have to negotiate for certain damages the insurance company typically doesn’t cover, such as mental anguish. Additionally, your lawyer will have to ensure the insurance company doesn’t devalue your case.
On top of all that, your lawyer may have to convince the rideshare company’s insurer to compensate you if the driver is liable but uninsured or underinsured. If necessary, your lawyer can threaten to sue the other driver.
Your lawyer will fight hard for a fair resolution. If the insurer doesn’t offer a fair settlement, your lawyer will sue the other party and ask a judge for a fair verdict. Before your lawyer takes your case to court, your lawyer can hire various experts, like medical experts, to provide courtroom testimony for your case.
