When you hire a car service, you probably trust the ride to be safe. You don’t have to focus on driving, and you’re probably thinking about your destination. But car accidents can still happen when you’re a passenger in a taxi or rideshare car.

Car accident insurance can get tricky in these situations. You might not know the difference between the car services’ insurance policies. You also could be dealing with injuries. If you’ve been injured in a rideshare car accident, there are people who can help. The Rideshare Law Group defends those who have been wrongfully injured in a rideshare accident. Depending on the rideshare company that was involved in the accident, you may need an Uber accident injury lawyer or a Lyft accident lawyer. The Rideshare Law Group has both. We’re ready to fight for your rights and make sure you get the compensation you need.

All rideshare companies are required to provide some type of insurance coverage for their drivers in addition to personal coverage even when the drivers work as independent contractors. This applies to both Lyft and Uber drivers. There will be some instances, however, when the driver will need to utilize their personal insurance coverage in addition or instead of the company’s insurance.

You find yourself downtown at a bar on a Friday night after a long week. It’s time to go home. You grab the phone, open the Uber app, and five minutes later you are in a car wreck. Worse, you have some injuries and have to get medical care. Now what? Who pays the doctor bills?

Some things to do after the wreck:

  • Write down the name of the driver if it’s not already in your phone
  • Take screenshots of your Uber ride and receipt on your phone (this is usually emailed to you)

Welcome to the Rideshare Law Group website. We’re a group of personal injury lawyers from all around the United States who are committed to helping clients that have been injured through no fault of their own in car accidents where a rideshare company or driver was involved. We understand that these types of accidents can be confusing and stressful, but they don’t have to be. We’re ready to step in and get you the compensation you need.

Rideshare accidents are tricky because multiple insurance companies are often involved. When multiple insurers work with a massive corporate legal department like the legal departments that Lyft and Uber employ, it’s a very real possibility that you might not get the settlement offer you deserve. A victim injured in an accident they had nothing to do with deserves better.
