Experienced Attorneys Representing People Injured In Uber And Lyft Accidents
If you were injured as a driver or a passenger in an accident involving a ride-sharing company, such as Uber or Lyft, the pathway to your financial recovery will depend on factors such as the following:
- If you were paying to ride in the ride-sharing company’s vehicle, had the driver accepted you as the passenger and started the clock ticking for the ride? If so, if you suffered a serious or suffered a catastrophic injury, you may be able to draw on the company’s $1 million in liability insurance. The same may apply if you were the driver or someone in another vehicle that was struck by a ride-sharing car that was officially in use.
- Whether you were a driver or passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, was it out of use at the time? In this case, you cannot draw on insurance through the ride-sharing company. Other sources such as the driver’s private auto insurance, other drivers’ insurance or your own underinsured motorist coverage may apply.
These descriptions are intended as theoretical illustrations and the points covered here may not apply in your case for a number of reasons. As with any motor vehicle accident, a detailed investigation and careful legal analysis are essential if you hope to maximize recovery after suffering injuries in a ride-sharing vehicle accident. This is true regardless of which vehicle you were in and whether you were the driver or passenger in the ride-sharing car.
