Rideshare car accident involving Lyft or Uber driver with injury

What if I’m Injured in a Rideshare Accident?

Move over, taxis – these days, rideshare apps are the transportation method of choice for those of us who need to hitch a ride. According to a 2018 survey, 36% of US adults and 51% of Americans age 18 to 29 have used ride-hailing apps like Uber or Lyft at least once. While rideshare services have received plenty of understandable criticism, one important issue often fails to get media attention – what will happen if you’re injured in an accident involving a rideshare driver? Contact the Don Turner Legal Team if you have been injured in a rideshare accident and see how an experienced personal injury attorney can help you.

When you’re dealing with an insurance company after a motorcycle accident, they will have a lot of questions for you. They’ll be asking about the incident itself, your medical history and perhaps your driving record. Yet, it’s a negotiation process. You should have some questions for the insurance company as well. A good personal injury or motorcycle accident lawyer can tell you what you need to ask the insurer for the liable person, or they can ask them on your behalf.

  1. Ask the insurance company for some written evidence of the policy specifics of the person liable for the accident. This can be a copy of their policy or a “declaration sheet.” The declaration sheet (or page) is a summary of the policy, including the policy limits.
  2. Additionally, you can ask them whether they have set a reserve amount for your case to satisfy the settlement amount. If they have not, perhaps you can surmise that they are planning on arguing that the accident was your fault.
