How Having a Greensboro Uber and Lyft Rideshare Accident Attorney Can Help
When you are injured in a rideshare accident, there are many variables that will determine who is responsible and how your medical bills will be paid.
For Uber and Lyft accident victims who choose not to hire representation, they must navigate a sea of changing rideshare laws to determine how, when, and with whom to file a claim.
Rideshare giants, Uber and Lyft, have been the subject of controversy since disrupting the transportation industry a little more than a decade ago. States continue to pass legislation, like North Carolina’s Passenger Safety Act, which laid out requirements for drivers to become more visible to passengers. California has created shock waves by requiring Uber and Lyft to consider all drivers employees, which will undoubtedly affect future liability in collisions.
Insurance companies love to point fingers when they can. Without simple and clear laws governing rideshare companies, you may be on the hook for your own injuries.
At Nagle & Associates, P.A., our Lyft injury attorneys in Greensboro have successfully represented rideshare victims. We know the challenges, we know the tactics, and our expertise can recover the compensation you need to move on with your life.
Why Is Liability So Challenging in Uber and Lyft Ridesharing Injury Matters?
The biggest distinction between other companies and ridesharing companies is how they classify their workers. If you are an employee and cause an accident, your employer most likely has liability insurance to settle a claim. However, Lyft and Uber classify their workers as independent contractors (with the exception of California).
There are other issues;
- Most insurance policies for individual drivers only cover damage when an accident occurs from personal use, not ridesharing.
- There are policies specific for rideshare drivers, however, it is not required.
- Due to mounting lawsuits, Uber and Lyft started to offer liability insurance to their contractors, but not all drivers are willing to pay for the service.
- Was the driver logged into the app at the time of the accident? If not, there is no coverage from Uber or Lift.
If you were hit by an Uber or Lyft driver while walking, riding your bike, or driving your own car;
- Was the driver logged into the app but waiting for a ride request?
- Had the driver accepted a request and was on the way?
- Did the driver have a passenger?
