What Type of Compensation is Available in a Rideshare Accident Case?

If you are involved in a rideshare accident and suffer significant injuries, you should recognize what compensation you may pursue. Compensation is crucial to help you cover some of the expenses you may encounter because of someone else’s negligent actions.

Before you can move forward and build your claim, it’s important to understand the losses that may be covered so you can pursue the maximum amount to which you are entitled. Here are the different types of compensation that may be available to you in your situation.

Economic Compensation

Economic compensation covers damages that cause you to experience a financial loss. For instance, this type of compensation can cover the money you pay for your medical treatment, including inpatient care, prescriptions, medical procedures, and more.

This type of compensation is also available for situations involving loss of financial income. If an injury is so severe that it causes you to miss work for a significant amount of time, you may be able to claim that lost income as part of your claim for financial compensation.

Non-Economic Compensation

This type of compensation covers losses that don’t have a financial impact on your life. Instead, it covers mental anguish, pain and suffering, and more. This type of compensation allows you to seek damages for the overall impact that the injury has on your life.

Non-economic compensation can be a significant part of your claim, and showing a loss of enjoyment in life can prove very beneficial. Non-economic compensation doesn’t have a direct monetary value, so working with legal counsel is vital in proving how much your case is worth.
