Personal Injury Compensation for Uber and Lyft Accident Victims


    Since Uber and Lyft were introduced, ridesharing has become an inexpensive and popular means of transportation for people around the world. Along with their growing popularity, the Uber and Lyft companies have often been in the media spotlight, making both good news and bad news headlines. While their presence in the lives of many daily commuters continues to grow, there are some who still have mixed feelings about the safety of Uber and Lyft.

    If you have been injured in a Lyft or Uber car accident, you may be entitled to receive personal injury compensation. However, it is important to understand that getting compensation for Uber and Lyft accident injuries is different from getting compensation for a motor vehicle accident involving individuals. Uber and Lyft drivers are independent contractors, not employees. Accordingly, they may deny injury claims, even when they are at fault. It is important to seek the help of an experienced lawyer to assist you in filing a successful claim. An experienced and knowledgeable lawyer can help you recover compensation for:


    • Past and future pain, as well as suffering and physical impairment
    • Past and future hospital, medical and disability expenses
    • Past financial losses, including loss of wages or salary and the value of damaged property
    • Loss of income in the future due to long-term disability
    • Punitive damages to cover negligence
    • Wrongful death, if the lawsuit is filed by the family of the person who has died
