Who Is Liable?

If you have been involved in a crash while riding in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, we recommend contacting a rideshare accident lawyer as soon as possible. We will investigate your accident and identify the liable parties. If the driver was at fault, we will walk through each of the factors that determine which insurance policies will apply to your injuries. While many victims may expect us to go after Uber or Lyft themselves, they are rarely the legally responsible parties. This is because rideshare companies employ drivers as independent contractors, which means that with few exceptions, they are not responsible for their drivers’ conduct while they are on the clock.

Will My Rideshare Accident Case Go to Trial?

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to anticipate how your case might proceed until we’ve reviewed the evidence. Our goal is to help you obtain a fair settlement without having to file a lawsuit. If the opposing party is uncooperative and we have to file suit, however, it may still be possible to collect a settlement without having to try the case. If, however, your case does go to trial, you can rest assured that our accomplished trial attorneys will help you navigate the process through every stage of the proceedings.

Should I Put off My Case until My Injuries Heal?

Even if your injuries seem minor, it is generally not advisable to put off the clinical evaluation if you think there’s a chance that you might file a personal injury claim. As the claimant, you must take reasonable steps to facilitate your recovery, or, in legal terms, to “mitigate your damages.” Failing to seek adequate care could cause your medical condition to worsen and increase your total damages, which could motivate the insurance company to dispute your claim. Also, seeking care right away can ensure your medical team can deliver a diagnosis immediately, which might improve your treatment outcome depending on the circumstances.
