While popular Uber and Lyft have just recently gained a foothold in US cities, the cars they use as part of their services have been around for decades. Uber and Lyft accidents are fundamentally the same as other vehicular crashes. They can be caused by any number of the following:
Even more so than others, rideshare drivers are distracted much of the time. They are forced to use their phone for GPS routes, pick up other passengers and complete transactions. Uber and Lyft drivers also typically converse with their passengers, which can also be distracting. Despite any amount of experience, this leaves the driver vulnerable to mistakes and errors behind the wheel can lead to accidents for any driver. Each time the rideshare driver looks at their phone or engages in conversation their risk for a crash increases drastically.
If you were injured while riding with Uber, you are entitled to a cash settlement. The company has a substantial insurance policy to cover passengers who were injured while using their service. You can file a claim against their policy, which according to the company’s website, has a $1 million total liability coverage limit. This should cover all possible damages that you incurred as a result of the driver’s actions.
Like Uber, Lyft has a similar policy in place to protect both its passengers and drivers. It too, according to their website, covers up to $1 million in damages. This will cover most medical expenses even in catastrophic injuries.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
