Rideshare Accident Injury Claims With Uber and Lyft Drivers

Ridesharing companies, like Uber and Lyft, have changed America’s transportation options and commuting habits. While they have brought greater freedom of movement, these modern transportation services do come with more complexity when processing personal injury claims.

Reaching settlements for personal injuries are complicated because the accident victim is most likely negotiating with three different parties. This means more rules and more paperwork.  This is why it is crucial to call an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your wreck.

Don’t let the complexity of Lyft or Uber accident settlements stop you from receiving the compensation you deserve. Hospital bills, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering can be obtained if you have the proper legal representation to fight for your rights and help you navigate through the insurance companies and paperwork.

Why Uber and Lyft Accidents are Different

A traditional car accident claim will have a plaintiff and a defendant. If both parties have proper car insurance, you most likely will be negotiating your settlement with only one insurance company (the company of the driver responsible for the accident).

Uber and Lyft accidents are different because there are more parties involved. This creates more complexity.

Rideshare accidents are more challenging to negotiate because you have more parties involved. You now have the victim (plaintiff), the driver (working for Uber or Lyft as an independent contractor), and the rideshare company (Uber or Lyft). Each party can have its own auto liability insurance company, which increases your paperwork and communication requirements.

Due to the multiple insurance companies and policies, an accident victim will struggle with complicated paperwork coming from multiple different directions.

To complicate matters further, you (or your loved one) may receive multiple settlement offers, which sounds great, but they might not be enough to cover your medical bills and lost wages. You need an experienced rideshare accident lawyer who can help manage the claim process and negotiations for you.

Although rideshare accidents have many similarities with regular car accidents, a Lyft or Uber accident is different, and it does require special handling by an experienced rideshare accident attorney.

You don’t have to feel pressured into taking a quick and low settlement. Take a moment to pause and educate yourself on your options.
