  • Why should I hire an Uber lawyer or Lyft lawyer?

    Ride-sharing Law is a specialized field with unique legal rules that come into play in an Uber or Lyft lawsuit. Each state has its own separate laws on ride-sharing. It is important to acknowledge these rules in your selection of where to file your case. Just as there are lawyers that specialize in criminal law, divorce, estate, etc., there are lawyers who have experience and expertise in Uber law, Lyft law, and other Ride-sharing laws. You wouldn’t want a divorce lawyer for a tax problem, would you?

  • What should I do if I am injured?

    The first thing you want to do if you were involved in a Ridesharing car accident is call 911 and seek medical attention. Never let the driver of another vehicle talk you out of calling the police. Having a police report is essential in pursuing a personal injury claim. The report will typically include details of the car accident, including statements from the Rideshare driver and other witnesses.

    If possible, request the other driver’s license and insurance information, in the event that the police officer doesn’t make the information available to you in his report.

    If possible, stand in a safe area away from traffic and photograph the vehicles before they are moved as well as the immediate vicinity to provide pertinent evidence in your potential lawsuit.

    After you have dealt with the police, if you were not taken to the hospital already, it is important to be seen by a doctor to examine yourself and document your injuries. Your medical records will be requested by an Uber Lawyer to be used as evidence in your Ridesharing accident claim.

  • Do I qualify for any benefits as an injured passenger?

    If a rideshare driver causes an accident, the victim is entitled to bring a negligence claim against the Ridesharing driver’s insurer, and collect an amount subject to the insurance coverage. In Illinois, Ridesharing companies are obligated to carry a primary insurance policy to cover any accidents during your ride. During your ride, the policy covers $1,000,000 for death, personal injury, and property damage, that of which may be satisfied by either the Uber policy, the driver’s personal policy, or a combination of both.

    It may be necessary to not only file a lawsuit against the Rideshare company, but also against a third party driver’s insurance company, depending on the circumstances.
