Whether it’s a fender bender or a more serious collision, being involved in a car accident can be an emotional ordeal. The accident can leave you with unanswered questions regarding physical injuries, medical bills and legal concerns. Unfortunately, all of these concerns become more complicated when a ridesharing vehicle, such as Uber or Lyft, is involved.

The rise in popularity of the ridesharing platform has led to significant growth and expansion of the industry. However, with that growth, several prominent issues have been brought to light. One of these issues, and a question that remains to be answered, is who should be held responsible when someone is involved in a ridesharing motor vehicle accident.

While the analysis of liability and damages essentially remains the same, different vehicle occupants may have different rights and avenues for relief. For example, a ridesharing driver injured in a motor vehicle accident may have the ability to pursue a workers’ compensation claim against the ridesharing company, as well as a separate personal injury claim against the driver at fault for causing the accident. A ridesharing passenger, however, may have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the ridesharing company, ridesharing driver, and driver of the other vehicle who caused the accident.

Each vehicle occupant’s perspective must be considered in evaluating a potential case. If you were involved in a ridesharing car accident you may be entitled to compensation.

Our workers’ compensation and personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and experience necessary to fight for you to ensure you receive all of the benefits and compensation you deserve.
