Rideshare Accident Lawyer
As of 2019, there are over 75 million active Uber users and over 23 million active Lyft users in the world, and those numbers are only expected to increase. For many, using these rideshare apps to request a ride is more convenient and inexpensive than calling a traditional taxi cab, and it provides a simple way for the drivers to earn extra money. But while Uber and Lyft do provide a convenient service, there is another reality to take into consideration: the rise of rideshare accidents. If you are injured in a Lyft accident or Uber accident, you’re entitled to seek compensation. The attorneys at RKM have successfully handled many rideshare cases.
Explore some commonly asked questions surrounding rideshare accident damages with the personal injury attorneys at Rubens, Kress & Mulholland below, and find out how we can represent you as your rideshare accident lawyer.
Who is Liable in a Rideshare Accident — the Driver or the Company?
The individual driver of the uber or lyft is responsible for your injuries caused by his negligence. The company the driver works for is responsible under agency law, assuming he is working for the company at the time.
What If the Accident was Not Caused by the Rideshare Driver?
If you are injured in a rideshare accident where the accident was caused by another driver, you can still seek compensation. Similarly, if you were injured in an accident caused by a rideshare driver and you were in the other car, you can also seek compensation.
How Much Compensation Can You Receive from an Uber Accident or Lyft Accident?
Both Uber and Lyft provide their drivers with $1 million in liability insurance coverage.
