Uber & Lyft Accidents in Marietta

Recovered Millions on Behalf of Clients throughout Georgia

Instead of waving down a taxi cab or waiting for the bus or train to arrive on schedule, a significant number of people now simply request a ride using an app on their cell phone. Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft enable users to get to their desired destination—whether it’s within the town or over to the next city—at a reasonable rate.

Unfortunately, passengers can be susceptible to car accidents just like anyone else on the road, and in some cases, these accidents can cause serious or life-threatening injuries. It is absolutely critical that if you were injured while driving in an Uber or Lyft, or you were driving your personal car and were struck by a rideshare vehicle, that you get legal representation right away.

Who is Liable in a Rideshare Accident?

Uber & Lyft accidents are complex in nature since there can be multiple parties who are potentially liable. In every car crash case, however, the plaintiff must prove that a person or entity was negligent in some manner that resulted in the car wreck.

If the Uber/Lyft Driver Is At Fault

If a rideshare driver causes an accident while you are a passenger, you can file an accident claim with their insurance provider to pursue compensation. While Uber and Lyft have liability insurance policies, they often supplement the driver’s coverage, if the driver doesn’t have enough coverage to pay all the damages.

Remember, the Uber/Lyft driver must possess commercial liability insurance to cover any accidents and injuries while using their personal vehicle for business purposes. If a driver doesn’t have such coverage and a collision occurs, then their insurance company could cancel the policy since a personal vehicle was being used for commercial purposes.

If the rideshare driver doesn’t have adequate insurance, then Uber and Lyft can provide third-party liability coverage up to $1 million, including $1 million in uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. However, rideshare companies will do their best to deny such claims.

If the Other Driver Is At Fault

If another driver crashes into an Uber or Lyft vehicle while you are a passenger, then you will simply file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance. If the at-fault driver doesn’t have enough coverage, then you can still file a claim with Uber or Lyft.
