Rideshare Accidents

Raleigh Rideshare Accident Lawyer

Rideshare services like Uber or Lyft  have become widely-use but sometimes they are not safe. Rideshare accidents can involve multiple insurance companies. Our attorney car accident lawyer knows the complications of these cases and how to overcome them.

Liability in Lyft and Uber Cases

When victims of a rideshare accident seek compensation, they need to determine who is liable for the accident. Usually, the liability falls on one of the two drivers. Still, if either or both drivers were working for a rideshare company at the time of the accident, then the employer may be the one who is liable for hiring a driver who caused an accident.

Thankfully, you do not have to be the one who determines liability. Your attorney can review the situation that led to the accident and pursue the best party to seek fair compensation from. The cost of an accident can include medical bills, lost income, physical therapy, and future medical treatment, and we can help you seek the financial compensation you need to cover those costs.

Insurance for Car Accidents with an Uber Driver

In addition to traditional taxi services in North Carolina, Uber and Lyft are becoming increasingly popular methods of transportation, but what about injuries sustained as a passenger in Uber, can you sue Uber? Uber is a company that uses contractors, not employees, to provide a ride-sharing service by selecting your driver from reading written reviews from other riders.  Uber drivers typically own the vehicle instead of Uber.  So who is liable if there is a crash, the vehicle owner-driver or Uber? Sorting through the evidence to determine liability and damages is complicated and a professional can help.  After police investigate the collision, injury victims frequently turn to personal injury attorneys for their experience and guidance to help them determine the extent of their damages and recovery options.  Adding an Uber-related accident to the equation can make things more complicated. 

Options After Being in An Uber Accident or Lyft Accident

Usually, Uber is not responsible for the actions of drivers that cause injury or damage to people or property because they do not employ the drivers.  Nevertheless, keep in mind: Uber provides insurance that covers riders while being driven by an Uber driver; If you are being driven by an Uber driver and another vehicle without insurance hits and causes the collision, Uber provides insurance. Uber provides insurance that covers riders while they are being driven by an Uber driver. 

Seek Help with Navigating Uber Injury Claims and Lyft Injury Claims

Many times, Uber or Lyft coverage may be limited and statements made by Uber or Lyft passengers to the insurance company may cause a claim to be denied.  You have the right to seek fair compensation for the damage you suffer if you were injured in a car collision and someone else is at fault, whether your accident involved Uber or Lyft.
