FAQ: What Happens Next When I’m Hurt In An Uber Or Lyft Accident?

There are many circumstances that can cause a car accident. In a rideshare accident, these circumstances can become even more complicated. Finding the responsible party after an Uber or Lyft accident can be a difficult process. If you’ve been injured in a ride-sharing accident, it is important to speak to a San Diego personal injury lawyer to secure all of your legal rights.

While it’s best to speak to an attorney regarding your specific case, here are some common questions our clients have asked following an Uber or Lyft accident:

Should I File My Personal Injury Claim Against Uber Or Lyft?

Like any other accident, there are many factors involved in determining fault. Rideshare drivers are employed and insured through their work. If they are involved in an accident, there are cases where their employer can be held liable. Our lawyers may be able to file a claim against the insurance companies that provide coverage for Uber or Lyft drivers. In a traditional car accident, claims are usually filed against individuals, not insurance companies. In rideshare accidents, insurance companies can be held responsible.

How Do I Know If Uber Or Lyft Hired A Responsible Driver?

Uber and Lyft are obligated to hire responsible drivers. If these companies do not properly screen an employee, they can be held accountable. For instance, if your driver was operating a vehicle without a valid license, and Uber or Lyft failed to verify the driver’s minimum requirements, you may have a claim against Uber or Lyft and/or the driver of the vehicle.

I Was The Uber Or Lyft Driver And I’ve Been Injured. Do I Have A Case?

Passengers aren’t the only ones injured in car accidents. Lyft and Uber drivers can sometimes be the victim of careless drivers on the road. Injured rideshare drivers may have a claim against the corporation that they work for, especially if Lyft or Uber refuses to pay or offers an inadequate settlement. If you are a driver who has been injured in an accident, you should talk to a lawyer before trying to settle with Uber or Lyft yourself. If you need to file a claim against Uber or Lyft, we can help. Our 5-star rated, trusted attorneys know how to best handle these types of complex claims. We can help you get the settlement that you deserve.

Can I File My Claim Against The Driver And Not Uber Or Lyft?

In some cases, a driver can be held responsible in a civil case outside of Lyft or Uber responsibility. Civil cases can be complex and require a legal team that understands all of the options available. Our lawyers have filed claims against negligent drivers with countless victories for injured people. Call our Yelp-recommended attorneys 24/7 for a free consult.

What Kind Of Insurance Does Uber And Lyft Carry?

Uber and Lyft are now required by California law to carry $1,000,000 in coverage for property damage, injury, and death when an accident is caused by one of their drivers. California laws also mandate that Lyft and Uber provide underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage for drivers and passengers. If another driver has fled the scene or lacks appropriate insurance coverage, Lyft or Uber may be responsible for paying for your claim.

Common Injuries In Lyft Or Uber Accidents

While no accident is ever alike, the following injuries are commonly reported due to rideshare accidents.

  1. Whiplash Whiplash is a common injury associated with car accidents. It should come as no surprise that whiplash is also often commonly reported in Lyft and Uber accidents. Our San Diego personal injury attorneys are well versed in car accident claims and have the expertise you need in order to file a claim if you have experienced whiplash in a rideshare accident. Whiplash most often occurs in rear-end accidents and T-bone accidents. Whiplash can also occur in other types of vehicle collisions.
  2. Broken Bones More severe car accidents can cause broken bones. Broken bones do not usually occur in isolation. If a person has broken bones after an accident, there is a good chance that they have additional injuries as well.
  3. Traumatic Brain Injury Sadly, some Lyft and Uber accidents can leave an individual with lifelong brain damage. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to significant cognitive impairment including loss of bodily function. A TBI can greatly affect a victim’s wellbeing. Routine activities can become difficult or cease entirely. With a TBI, a victim’s entire future can be altered in a split second.
  4. Paralysis Paralysis occurs when the spinal cord is damaged, causing potential loss of function in the extremities. Paralysis can lead to a number of other complications including neurogenic shock, urinary and gastrointestinal disruption, abnormal bodily temperature control, hypotension, and more. Paralysis can change the way a body functions and forever impact its ability to perform normal movements.
  5. Wrongful Death If your loved one or family member was tragically lost in an Uber or Lyft accident, we are sincerely sorry for your loss and pain. It is important to seek justice for your loved one, and our lawyers can help.

Michael Pines and his team have kept their promise.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.

Herminio Salamante

I cannot say enough good things about my experience

My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.

Michael worked non-stop, nothing deterred him

After falling on a cruise ship and being emergency evacuated to a hospital in Mexico, I was scared and needed help, especially because I am 89 years old. Michael worked non-stop, through the weekend, communicating internationally with stubborn insurance personnel who tried to put up roadblocks every step of the way.
