As in all car accident cases, an investigation must determine who is responsible for the collision. If you were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, you will not have responsibility for the car accident, but rather need to determine who is responsible for your injuries and losses. Our experienced attorneys can help you determine who is liable in your Uber/Lyft accident.
Some of the parties responsible could be the following:
- The other driver. If the other driver is determined to be responsible for the car accident, the process is much clearer, and you will likely be able to receive compensation from that driver’s insurance company.
- The Uber/Lyft driver. The driver may have their own insurance coverage, however, in some cases, insurance companies will not cover Uber/Lyft drivers.
- Ridesharing company. You may be able to file a claim directly with Uber’s insurance policy, as their policy does cover its drivers. Every ridesharing company operates differently with respect to its drivers, and we can help you determine who to file a claim against to receive compensation for your injuries and losses.
