Ride share services like Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber are convenient, affordable, and environmentally friendly. It is no wonder that more and more Americans are using them to get around town. Studies show that 15% of U.S. adults have used a ride sharing app. 17% of these users rideshare on a weekly basis. However, there are dangers to this method of transportation. Do you really know the drivers you are trusting with your life?
If your ride sharing experience ends in a collision, MVP Accident Attorneys is there to advocate for you. Our Uber accident lawyers offer aggressive personal injury representation on a contingency fee basis. This means that we don’t get paid unless you win.
Ride sharing coverage laws are constantly changing. Our Uber accident lawyers know that recovering from an accident can be stressful both physically and financially. Let us give you peace of mind while handling the complicated legal issues surrounding your case.
Traditional taxicab drivers operate under commercial auto liability insurance. Newer ridesharing companies each structure their insurance coverage differently. Without solid policies in place, rideshare accident victims may encounter a lot of gray areas.
If you are injured in a car accident while ridesharing you may be protected by the company insurance policy, your own insurance, or the insurance of the motorist providing the service. If you do not have auto insurance, or if your insurance specifically excludes ride-sharing accidents, this will create complications.
You need an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. Our California and Texas rideshare accident attorneys are pioneering modern methods to handle legal matters. Our electronic system is completely private and allows us to streamline paperwork for a more efficient process.
After your accident, your driver should call emergency services immediately and pull to the side of the road. While you wait for emergency services and law enforcement, gather as much information from the driver as possible.
