Rideshare (Uber / Lyft)
Uber and Lyft are very popular rideshare companies in New Jersey and across the United States as they offer a convenient mode of transportation in urban areas. Personal injury claims involving Lyft and Uber drivers, however, are on the rise. Due to the unprecedented technological advancements that were employed by ridesharing services, legislators have implemented laws regarding ridesharing company liability. If you are looking to work with an experienced Rideshare (Uber / Lyft) accident lawyer who can accurately apply the ridesharing liability law to your accident claim, look no further than Team Law.
Understanding Rideshare (Uber / Lyft) Accidents
Rideshare accidents can be caused by exhaustion, ignoring the red light, inexperienced driving, speeding, distracted drivers, dangerous driving, cellphone use, and more.
If one was injured in a crash that was caused by an Uber or Lyft driver, he or she has the right to sue the driver via a lawsuit. This may include a claim that the rideshare company was negligent in supervising, retaining, and hiring the driver. If an accident occurs, some rideshare companies do provide some insurance coverage for their passengers.
If a rideshare driver is injured on the job, but wasn’t at fault, he or she can apply for workers’ compensation. An insurance carrier, however, may deny the claim because a personal vehicle was used for business purposes. Because of these challenges, consulting a professional personal injury attorney before taking any legal action is recommended.
