Both Uber and Lyft have quickly increased the scope of their operations across the country. They have expanded significantly in Bloomfield, New Jersey as well, giving consumers quick access to affordable and practical transportation services, even at short notice. However, this spike in popularity has also been accompanied by a rise in car accidents involving Uber and Lyft vehicles and drivers. Fortunately, New Jersey recently passed new legislation that enables victims of ridesharing accidents brought on by careless or negligent third parties to file claims for damages and get compensation.
Our Bloomfield Uber accident lawyers are prepared to defend your interests. The CDC estimates that approximately $400 billion in losses are caused annually by automobile accidents. This amount is currently estimated to be around $800 million for the state of New Jersey alone. These are actual expenses that can have a big impact on your ability to concentrate on healing. There is no justification for making you pay for an accident that was someone else’s fault. Our seasoned and skilled staff will support you with evidence gathering, insurance negotiations, and courtroom representation—and we only get paid if you prevail.
Multiple insurance companies may be involved in your ridesharing accident claim, which is the main distinction between Uber and Lyft accident claims. This can make it more challenging to identify who among several paying players is liable for victims’ compensation. Another distinction is that Uber and Lyft classify their drivers as independent contractors rather than employees, and these individuals are subject to different liability laws.
Accidents involving Uber and Lyft that result in injury generally include one or more of the following people:
Our Bloomfield Uber accident lawyers can assist you in filing a claim against the following parties depending on the particulars of your accident:
All Uber drivers must carry third-party liability insurance of at least $1 million, as per Uber. However, ridesharing businesses in New Jersey are obliged to carry $1.5 million in such coverage, as per 2019’s New Jersey Revised Statute 39:5H-10.
There are, however, some circumstances in which this new maximum is applicable, therefore, Uber and Lyft will look into your case to determine whether the new, higher minimum applies or if other insurance minimums apply. These other insurance minimums are listed below.
After an accident, don’t give up hope, but don’t wait either.

So that you may concentrate on healing and getting your life back on track, get in touch with our knowledgeable Bloomfield Uber accident lawyers to file a damages claim.
