Things To Know About Uber And Lyft Accidents

Use of ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft has expanded dramatically in the past few years. However, if a ride-hailing car is involved in an accident that causes injuries, the process for recovering compensation you need to heal works differently than if you were a passenger in an ordinary noncommercial vehicle.

The Law Offices of John C. Ye, A Professional Law Corporation has recovered more than $300 million for clients and focuses exclusively on personal injury cases. Our founding attorney has built a multicultural, multilingual law firm that prides itself on excellent customer service as well as outstanding legal results.

Facts About Uber And Lyft Accidents

  • If you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft accident while the driver is logged in as available on the rideshare app, both companies have policies to cover injuries resulting from the accident.
  • If the ride-hailing accident was caused by another driver who does not have insurance coverage, Uber and Lyft both have uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage that applies for the duration of your trip.
  • When you activate the Uber app for a ride, you are agreeing to a contract in which the company reserves the right to deny accident claims and requires you to make your Uber accident settlement claim through binding arbitration instead of a civil personal injury lawsuit.
  • If you are a California resident, it is possible to sue Uber or Lyft directly for damages. Situations in which this might be a viable strategy include if the rideshare driver was grossly negligent.

The case law related to ride-hailing accidents is still developing. Trust the ride-hailing accident lawyers of the Law Offices of John C. Ye, A Professional Law Corporation to assess the circumstances of your case and advise you of what steps to take next.
