Auto Accidents & Ridesharing Services

Auto accidents can be traumatic and troubling experiences, especially when victims suffer injuries and need to navigate the legal journey of recovering compensation. The personal injury claim process can also become more challenging when unique circumstances are involved. Accidents involving ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft, for example, can create a number of complications during the legal process.

Uber and Lyft are two of the most widely used ride-sharing services. These services have become incredibly popular because consumers often find them more convenient and efficient than taxis or public transportation. However, the policies of these services can place victims at risk when they are injured in auto accidents.

Unique Challenges

Below are a few issues that can create unique challenges in cases involving rideshare accidents and injuries:

  • Drivers - Uber and Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors rather than company employees. This relationship means that drivers don’t have to meet the same standards as similarly employed professional drivers. They may not be specially trained or regulated in the same way either.
  • Insurance & Liability - Uber and Lyft accidents can involve unique liability and insurance challenges. For example, rideshare services often abide by policies that only cover damages when a driver is “on the clock.” In some cases, victims may need to pursue compensation through the driver’s personal insurance rather than the corporate insurance carried by the rideshare company.

When victims are injured in auto accidents they did not cause, they have the right to pursue financial compensation for their damages, which may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Unfortunately, the unique circumstances and policies of ridesharing companies can threaten this right. As such, victims who have been injured in ridesharing accidents should be intent on working with experienced lawyers who can handle these challenges.

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
