When A Car Accident Involves An Uber Or Lyft Vehicle

So-called ride-share services like Uber and Lyft have overtaken traditional taxi companies in many communities. With an Uber or Lyft ride request, you may get a ride quickly at a more affordable price than you could with a commercial taxi or shuttle service. While Uber and Lyft offer advantages that many passengers appreciate, they also may present special challenges when it comes to recovering compensation for someone injured in a crash involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle.

You may have been injured as a:

  • Passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle
  • Passenger or driver in another car struck by an Uber or Lyft car
  • Driver of an Uber or Lyft car

Which Sources Of Compensation Funding Will Apply?

Insurance questions may become critical to find answers to when injuries are serious. Whatever your role in the accident, you may need compensation to cover medical bills, replace your lost income and acknowledge your pain and suffering. What if the Uber or Lyft driver did not have adequate insurance? Might his or her insurance company have claims exclusions for undeclared commercial uses of a private car, truck or van? What about Uber and Lyft as businesses? Are they responsible, as well as the driver? These are examples of the types of questions that may require extensive investigation after an Uber or Lyft accident resulting in injuries.
