Like any serious motor vehicle accident, an accident involving a rideshare vehicle can involve spinal cord injuries, broken bones, internal injuries, brain trauma and other temporarily or permanently disabling injuries. In the worst case, you may be dealing with the loss of a loved one. What makes Uber and Lyft accident cases more complex is the fact that you are dealing not only with an individual driver, but the rideshare company that driver is working for as well. An injury attorney on our team is a specialist in dealing with the intricacies of such cases and has successfully maximized just compensation for damages including:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future income
  • Additional treatment and care requirements
  • Pain and suffering

  • And more

We Hold Insurance Companies Accountable in Rideshare Accidents

Rideshare services such as Uber, Lift and others offer a million-dollar policy that covers anyone injured due to their driver’s negligence. This generally holds true even in cases of uninsured or underinsured drivers who cause accidents. Part of this policy, however, is that coverage is in “phases” based on the driver’s activities and the insurer may try to deny responsibility for a claim. The driver’s personal insurance may exclude any commercial activity and therefore, likewise, deny any claim.

This can lead to insurance coverage gaps for you as an injury victim and loopholes that make liability not as clearcut as it may be in other types of vehicle accidents. An Uber and Lift accident attorney with us works diligently to negotiate insurance policy overlaps and liability positioning in rideshare accidents in order to make sure our client receives the compensation rightfully due and eliminate attempts to deny or delay settlement.

Elements we investigate and document to determine fault, negligence and liability include:

  • Was the driver between fares at the time of the accident?
  • Was the driver using the Uber or Lyft app at the time?
  • Did the driver have commercial use or rideshare insurance added to his or her personal policy?
