While rideshare services are often an efficient and cost-effective way to get around, not every ride ends with the passenger arriving at their destination safely.

At the Rideshare Law Group, we represent accident victims who have sustained various injuries and losses.

You should receive the compensation you need and are owed, to get your life back in order as quickly as possible.
Common Rideshare Accidents and Injuries
Like any other car crashes, rideshare accidents can result in a multitude of injuries for the victims. The type of accident you’re in will likely impact the severity of your injuries. Common accident types include sideswipes, T-bones, head-on collisions, and rear-end accidents.
After an accident, it’s imperative to seek medical attention to receive an accurate diagnosis. You could be suffering from a multitude of injuries without even realizing it. Some of the most common Uber and Lyft accident injuries include broken bones, bruises, lacerations, head injuries like concussions, and soft tissue damage.
Even minor injuries can result in significant medical bills. If you cannot manage your medical bills, you want to make sure you have an Oklahoma accident attorney by your side. With our help, you’ll be able to receive the compensation you need to take care of any accident-related expenses and begin to move past what you were put through.
Filing an Injury Claim Against Uber or Lyft in Oklahoma
No matter where you live, taking legal action against a ride-hailing giant like Uber or Lyft can seem intimidating. Fortunately, our Oklahoma attorneys have extensive experience representing accident victims, and we are prepared to take your case on next.
Filing a claim is a multi-step process. Not only will we need to collect evidence to determine how and why the crash happened, but we will also need to make a liability determination. Proving liability for a rideshare accident isn’t always easy, as you need to determine if you’re holding the driver or the company accountable for your injuries.
You’ll be able to hold the driver accountable if they were negligent behind the wheel and were in the phase of transporting you from your pick-up destination to your drop-off point. You may also be able to hold the driver accountable if they struck you with their vehicle while transporting someone else.
When it comes to holding Uber or Lyft accountable for your crash, their liability is harder to prove. Your lawyer will need to delve deep into how they hired the driver and whether their best practices were used to prevent accidents. No matter who is determined out fault for your crash, we will be sure to fight on your behalf to obtain full and fair compensation for your economic and noneconomic losses, including, but not limited to, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.
