Types of Rideshare Accidents We Handle

The National Trial Lawyers Top 100

Our firm represents clients after ridesharing accidents, including:

  • Accidents as a rideshare passenger
  • Accidents caused by other (non-rideshare) drivers
  • Accidents with a rideshare vehicle as a pedestrian or bicyclist

No matter what type of ridesharing accident you’ve been involved in, we have the knowledge and resources to help you navigate the legal process and seek the compensation you deserve.

Accidents Where You Are a Rideshare Passenger

As a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, you trust that the driver will get you to your destination safely. If the driver causes an accident, and you’re injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

However, multiple insurance policies and legal entities may make determining liability and navigating the claims process challenging.

Our ridesharing accident lawyers can help you:

Our mission is to ensure you receive fair compensation from whoever injured you.

Rideshare Accidents When You Are Driving Your Vehicle

If you’re driving your own vehicle and are injured in an accident caused by a rideshare driver, you may face obstacles when seeking compensation for your injuries and damages. The rideshare company’s insurance policy may not always apply, and the driver’s personal insurance may have limitations or exclusions related to the commercial use of their vehicle.

Our attorneys can help you determine which insurance policies apply to your case, gather evidence to prove liability and fight for the compensation you deserve. We have the skills and resources to take on the big rideshare app companies and their teams of defense lawyers and insurance adjusters to protect your rights.

Rideshare Accidents Involving Pedestrians or Bicyclists

Rideshare drivers are often in a hurry to pick up or drop off passengers. Speeding or distracted driving often leads to accidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists.

If a rideshare vehicle struck you, you may face serious injuries, mounting medical bills, and time away from work. Our ridesharing accident attorneys can hold the responsible parties accountable and seek the compensation you need to cover your losses and support your recovery.

Determining Fault and Liability in Ridesharing Accidents

One of the most challenging aspects of Uber and Lyft accident cases is determining fault and liability. Several factors can come into play, and you can hold multiple parties responsible depending on the circumstances.

Liable parties may include:

  • The rideshare driver
  • The rideshare company (Uber or Lyft)
  • Other drivers involved in the accident
  • Vehicle manufacturers (in cases involving defective parts)

Determining fault and liability is crucial, as it directly impacts your ability to seek compensation for your injuries and legal damages. An experienced ridesharing accident attorney at Franklin D. Azar & Associates can thoroughly investigate your case, gather evidence, and consult with experts to build a strong case on your behalf.

The Role of Insurance in Rideshare Crashes

Ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft provide insurance coverage for their drivers and passengers, but the amount of coverage can vary depending on the circumstances of the accident.

For example:

  • If the rideshare driver is logged into the app and waiting for a ride request, Uber and Lyft provide limited liability coverage.
  • If the rideshare driver is actively transporting a passenger or en route to pick up a passenger, Uber and Lyft provide more substantial liability coverage (up to $1 million).

However, if the rideshare driver is not logged into the app or is using the vehicle for personal reasons, the rideshare company’s insurance may not apply, and the driver’s personal insurance policy may be the primary source of coverage.

Our ridesharing accident lawyers can help you navigate the complex insurance landscape and ensure that all applicable insurance policies are identified and pursued to maximize your compensation.

What are Some Potential Complications in Rideshare Collision Claims?

Seeking compensation after a ridesharing accident can be more complex than a typical car accident claim due to several potential complications:

  • Multiple insurance companies: Depending on the circumstances of the accident, multiple insurance policies may be involved, including the rideshare company’s policy, the driver’s personal policy, and the policies of other drivers involved in the accident. Dealing with multiple insurance companies can be time-consuming and confusing, and it’s essential to have an experienced ridesharing accident lawyer on your side to protect your rights and interests.
  • Independent contractor status: Rideshare companies typically try to classify their drivers as independent contractors rather than employees of the rideshare company. This distinction can impact liability and the applicability of certain insurance policies. Our attorneys can help you understand how the driver’s classification may affect your case and develop strategies to pursue compensation from all responsible parties.
  • Preserving evidence: Building a strong rideshare injury case requires gathering and preserving critical evidence, such as accident reports, witness statements, photographs of the scene and your injuries, medical records, and documentation from the rideshare company. Our lawyers can help you collect and preserve this evidence to support your claim and protect your rights throughout the legal process.
