Injured While In An Uber Or Lyft In New Jersey?

Thousands of car crashes occur every day in the United States with causes ranging from drunk driving to distracted driving to terrible road conditions. We often forget that the Uber and Lyft drivers we request are also capable of causing the same type of car accidents that are far too common.

Though we are grateful to have additional means of transportation in and around New Jersey, when an accident does occur, it can make the claims process much more difficult to navigate. If you or someone you love has sustained injuries in an Uber or Lyft accident, contact our experienced rideshare accident lawyers to schedule your free consultation today.

Uber Or Lyft Accidents In NJ - Common Injuries

As the population continues to grow throughout New Jersey, so does the need for rideshare services such as Uber or Lyft. With the rise of Uber/Lyft drivers, comes more auto accidents leading to serious injuries for passengers involved. As well as the far too common rear-end collisions, prevalent on our busy highways, a small percentage of Uber or Lyft accidents are far more serious, resulting in severe or even life-threatening injuries.

Some of the most common injuries sustained by car accident victims are as follows:

  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Other head injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Internal organ damage or bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputation
  • Loss of hearing and/or vision

If the Lyft or Uber accident led to a wrongful death, our team of injury lawyers will work strenuously to get compensation to help cover the funeral or burial costs involved as well as compensation to help with any family matters and loss of companionship.

Uber Or Lyft Accidents - Handling Insurance Companies

Though we see Uber or Lyft as a transportation service, the people employed are no different than us. There's no professional training or specific driving requirements that differ from our basic C-Class driver's license which allows us to transport less than 24 passengers at a time. Uber or Lyft drivers are also considered independent contractors so when an accident involving a rideshare driver does occur, determining liability can be tricky.

After an auto accident involving an Uber/Lyft driver does happen, the injured victims soon learn there are many insurance companies involved and it can become overwhelming to handle. Injured passengers have the option of using their personal insurance coverage, the rideshare companies insurance carrier, the Uber/Lyft liability coverage, or a combination of the available avenues.

Another fact to take into consideration is that there are three different stages of work for an Uber or Lyft driver, and depending on what stage they were in when the accident occurred, can have an effect on the type of liability insurance accessible to them.

Nevertheless, insurance companies fight among themselves, so getting the reimbursement you deserve for your injuries might take longer than expected. You can trust that your NJ car accident lawyer will fight for you.

Uber Or Lyft Driver Liability

Since more than one insurance company is expected to be involved in negotiating a settlement or pursuing a personal injury lawsuit in an Uber or Lyft claim, it is critical that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney who understands how liability works in such instances. As mentioned above, most insurance companies will try as hard as possible to pay out as little as possible. Determining the percentage of responsibility held by the Uber/Lyft driver is crucial to seeking compensation for serious injuries or damages.
