Rideshare Accidents

Ridesharing services have grown in popularity over the years. While ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft are convenient, unfortunately, accidents still happen.

However, by hiring an attorney from Dahlberg Law Group, you can rest assured that your case is being handled diligently.

We will fight to make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to. Our attorneys are thoroughly equipped to ask the right questions and provide the highest quality of representation for your case.


Risks of Ridesharing

Ridesharing services are convenient, but they still come with risks. Unlike other driving services like taxis, drivers for services like Uber and Lyft are not professionally trained. While drivers need to have a good driving record, they all have the same driver’s license as anyone else on the road.

Drivers for services like Uber and Lyft also use their own cars. While public transportation vehicles are regularly maintained and checked, you can’t be sure if your driver’s car is looked at with the same care.

Ridesharing also carries the risk of distracted driving and unsafe driving habits. Distracted driving can be common as drivers have a lot on their minds between figuring out where to pick you up, drop you off and their next stop. Drivers could also be reckless and take unsafe chances to cut down on the ride time. Now this does not mean that every rideshare driver is unsafe. However, accidents can happen from the slightest mistake, so it is best to understand the risks that come with ridesharing so you can be prepared.

What to Do After a Rideshare Accident

After being involved in a rideshare accident, the next steps can be confusing. If you are injured in the accident, you need to contact your insurance agency right away. You also should hire an attorney who knows the ins and outs of rideshare accidents.

The insurance coverage will depend on the rideshare company and the circumstances of the accident. While rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft insure their drivers, it typically only qualifies when the driver has a passenger. While the drivers should have insurance, the technicalities of the situation can make the process of filing a personal injury claim tedious. If you were hit by a rideshare driver when they were en route to pick someone up or had just dropped someone off, it can add further confusion to the circumstances of the accident.

With all the questions that come with rideshare accidents, you must hire a qualified attorney for your case. At Dahlberg Law Group, not only are we familiar with all of the rideshare policies and implications, but we also have the passion and drive to get you the compensation you deserve.
