Uber/Lyft Accident Lawyers
“I was injured as a passenger in an Uber, what should I do?”
As ridesharing becomes increasingly common and widely accepted as a means of transportation, the chances of getting into an accident as a passenger have greatly increased. The convenience factor of hailing a cab with the tap of a finger couldn’t be more appealing, however, the drivers’ reliance on GPS apps and their tendencies to pick up and drop off passengers at random places make them more susceptible to accidents.
Don’t deal with insurance companies alone. Get Flager & Associates on your side.
According to The Rideshare Guy, “All Uber drivers have to carry personal insurance but while you’re on a trip, Uber and Lyft’s policy is primary and it provides $1 million of liability insurance. This is much higher than the typical personal policy so there is potential for a very large settlement if you’re injured while in a rideshare vehicle. And just like drivers, you are eligible for lost wages, medical and more if you were involved in an accident as a passenger in an Uber/Lyft vehicle.”
Accidents happen fast, but the consequences can last a lifetime. It’s important that you have an experienced lawyer on your side that will fight to get you the compensation and assistance that you not only need, but deserve. If you were a passenger involved in an Uber or Lyft accident and sustained an injury, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against several parties. Depending on the evidence, driver, rideshare company, or car manufacturer could be liable for your injuries. Uber & Lyft drivers’ earnings are dependent upon the amount of hours they work, often times causing them to drive quickly and aggressively. Not only does that put you, the passenger, at risk, but it also puts fellow drivers at risk.
If you or a loved one was injured while riding in an Uber, Lyft, or any other rideshare vehicle, don’t wait – contact Flager & Associates immediately.
