Compensation for Lyft and Uber Accidents

Thousands of people use rideshare services each day. Unfortunately, things can go wrong. If you have been in an accident, it is our goal for you to receive the compensation you deserve.

We are full-service Moncks Corner Uber and Lyft accident lawyers. We are prepared to evaluate all the issues and pursue your case. We can assist you with:

  • Investigating standards of legal fault and how it applies to rideshare drivers
  • Looking at causes of the accident and who may have acted negligently
  • Determining what insurance policies exist and which apply to the case
  • Knowing what the case is worth and what categories of damages may apply
  • Filing a claim, including in court or directly with the rideshare company
  • Building the evidence and pursuing the case
  • Giving you guidance and counsel throughout the case
  • Negotiating with the rideshare company
  • Advising whether to accept a settlement or proceed to trial in your case

It is our job to manage your case and pursue it fully. Along the way, we answer your questions and give you honest advice. This approach has made us successful in advocating for Moncks Corner victims for decades.

Do I have an Uber or Lyft accident claim?

If you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle at the time of an accident, there is a good chance you have a claim. Most accidents are caused by human error, or a lack of reasonable care and caution. With rideshare companies offering insurance guarantees, we can investigate to find the appropriate insurance policy to pay compensation.

Even if you are in another vehicle – or even the rideshare driver – you may deserve financial compensation.

We represent:

  • Uber passengers
  • Lyft passengers
  • Rideshare drivers, if someone else is at fault
  • Drivers in other vehicles
  • Occupants in other vehicles
  • Pedestrians
  • People injured while embarking and disembarking from a vehicle

Rideshare accidents happen in a variety of circumstances. Often, passengers enter and leave vehicles in crowded areas. Drivers may not always leave sufficient distance for rideshare vehicles. Fault can be complex. Our lawyers can help.

Despite talking about their $1 million insurance guarantees, the goal of the rideshare companies is to pay as little as they can. When you have a lawyer on your side, they know that you are serious about your claim.

How to get Uber or Lyft accident compensation?

Immediately following an Uber or Lyft accident, seek medical attention for your injuries. Make sure that the accident is promptly reported to the police. Collect any evidence that you can including the names of all drivers involved and their license and vehicle information.

Our lawyers will investigate the cause of the accident. We will determine who has legal fault as well as what insurance policies apply. It depends on the status of the rideshare driver at the time of the accident, who is at fault and the insurance policies that each driver maintains.

Relying on our experience, we evaluate all types of compensation that you may deserve. Compensation can include pain and suffering and other non-economic damages. We understand legal procedures, and we are prepared to fight for justice for you.

What Damages Can an Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyer Help You Recover?

Our Uber & Lyft accident attorneys can evaluate your potential losses, including economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. Non-economic damages may include pain, emotional distress, disfigurement, and impaired quality of life.

Do Uber and Lyft Conduct Background Checks on Drivers?

According to the company website, Uber drivers go through a screening before they are hired and, at a minimum, annually after their first drive. The company uses technology to search for issues in between these checks.

Lyft states that it conducts a driver criminal background check with the applicant’s consent during the application process. Some states require re-checks quarterly or biannually, but South Carolina does not.

Both companies conduct background checks through third parties, but these checks are not a foolproof way to catch prior offenders. Sometimes rideshare companies opt for the lowest-priced package from a background-checking company that doesn’t always provide in-depth information.

Talk to your Uber & Lyft accident lawyer if you suspect a problem with a driver’s background check.

Who Should You Call To Discuss Your Case?

The rideshare company’s terms and conditions can make it challenging to know who to contact when you have a potential case against the company. This means many different parties and insurance companies may be involved in your accident. Our Uber & Lyft accident attorney can help determine who to contact about your claim.

Can You Sue an Uber or Lyft Driver After an Accident?

You can sue a rideshare driver after an accident. In certain instances, you may be able to also file a lawsuit against the company for which the driver works.

Rideshare accidents often involve multiple stakeholders, including the corporation, drivers, passengers, contract employees, and insurance companies. Knowing where to begin can be challenging. Our West Law Firm Uber & Lyft accident attorneys can guide you through filing a lawsuit.
