How are Uber Accidents Different from Other Car Accidents?
One of the biggest differences between a typical car accident and an Uber/Lyft accident is liability. In order to drive for a rideshare service, a driver is required to have their own personal insurance coverage for off-duty use in addition to a corporate policy that goes into effect when the Uber or Lyft app is turned on. Determining liability for an accident can become complex in some situations, such as when a driver is out roaming for a job or when they are on their way to pick someone up. Furthermore, because Uber considers its drivers independent contractors rather than employees, they may be less willing to pay out an accident claim and attempt to get the driver to shoulder the responsibility.
Rideshare companies are facing scrutiny for their lack of accountability when their drivers get into accidents. Drivers, passengers, and pedestrians who are injured in an accident caused by a rideshare driver may be able to file a lawsuit in order to hold the company accountable. Justice Law Office can help!
You May Be Entitled to Compensation!Rideshare drivers have a responsibility to drive in a safe and responsible manner in order to prevent injury to their passengers and others on the road. If you have been injured because your driver failed in this duty, you may be able to recover money for the damages you have suffered, including medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. If an Uber or Lyft accident has resulted in the wrongful death of a loved one, families may be able to recover damages for funeral and burial costs, loss of companionship and support, and more.
