Ridesharing is an increasingly common way of getting around thanks to advances in technology, smartphones, and mobile applications. Ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft are among the most popular ways to ride-share, with convenience and affordability at the forefront of what they have to offer.
However, like any mode of ridesharing or public transportation, when you accept that ride, you are putting your safety – and possibly your life – in the hands of the person driving. So what do you do if you were involved in an auto accident while riding in an Uber or Lyft vehicle? The first step is contacting Century Park Law Group to discuss the details of your case.
How an Uber/Lyft Accident Attorney Can Help
It is common to hear cases about Uber or Lyft fighting against individuals claiming to be injured. In some cases that is true, but these companies must abide by certain laws and standards, including having certain levels of insurance to protect passengers and other drivers in the event of an accident. The first step in any Uber or Lyft accident case is conducting a careful review of the accident situation, including determining:
- Who was at fault?
- Was the Uber or Lyft driver negligent?
- Does the company have adequate insurance coverage?
- Does the insurance company’s offer cover your losses?
Only through a careful review of your accident case can we determine what compensation you may be entitled to. You should never settle for the first offer an insurance company has made without discussing your legal rights with an attorney.
