Rideshare Accidents Attorneys
in Atlanta, Georgia
Car accidents are often traumatic and frustrating for everyone involved. However, rideshare accidents add an additional layer of worry, fear, and uncertainty for both the driver and the passengers. Many individuals take popular rideshares, such as Uber or Lyft, to ensure they get to their destination safely. Getting into an Uber accident can feel especially frustrating given the fact you were doing your best to remain safe on the road. The results of the accident may leave you with serious injuries, anxiety, and medical bills. Given the complex laws surrounding liability for this type of car accident, it's important to work with a personal injury attorney so you can seek justice. We work with clients in the Atlanta, Georgia, area to help them file personal injury lawsuits after a rideshare accident.
Rideshares vs. Car Accidents
Many drivers encounter minor car accidents throughout their lives. Some accidents, such as those caused by drunk drivers, are especially traumatic for victims. Drivers justified these behaviors, claiming cabs were inaccessible or expensive. Companies like Uber and Lyft developed specifically to resolve issues like this, ultimately providing riders with affordable and convenient rides to and from their destination. As a result, many riders involved in rideshare accidents feel somewhat betrayed by their drivers. When you get into your Uber, you expect to know you'll safely arrive at your destination. Victims in more serious rideshare accidents often find themselves facing emotional trauma due to the circumstances of the crash. Additionally, you may find yourself facing serious injuries after the accident that can lead to permanent disability, loss of income, and other life-long issues. The combination of physical and emotional trauma is overwhelming for most people, especially given how difficult it is to understand who was liable for the accident.
Uber and Lyft's Involvement
Some victims of Lyft accidents may immediately want to contact the rideshare company for compensation for their injuries. In some cases, these organizations will comply and help cover the cost of medical bills and other damages the rider suffered. However, both companies have specific rules and regulations regarding how much they will compensate each passenger, the maximum number of passengers they are willing to pay, and rules regarding the rideshare driver's involvement in the accident. As a result, victims of rideshare accidents may or may not receive any compensation from the rideshare company, and may need to work with a personal injury lawyer to determine the best course of action for seeking compensation in these situations.
Liability for Rideshare Accidents
in Atlanta, Georgia
Rideshare collision cases often become complicated due to the driver's position as a contractor with Uber or Lyft. Clients often feel overwhelmed and receive mixed messages from both drivers, as well as the rideshare company, about who caused the accident. Therefore, working with a personal injury lawyer is almost always essential in these situations. There are many factors to consider when filing your personal injury lawsuit. For instance, Uber and Lyft do not always compensate riders involved in accidents if the rideshare driver was not logged into the rideshare platform. Additionally, drunk driving Uber or Lyft accidents can complicate liability further. Ultimately, you and your personal injury lawyer need to carefully review the crash report, driver statements, and any additional evidence to successfully file a personal injury claim.
