After A Rideshare Accident, What Are My Rights?
Rideshare programs have become so common. From getting to a friend’s house to running errands, Uber and Lyft are used on a daily basis. When accidents happen, it’s hard to know who can be held liable. The Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates has handled cases for clients throughout New York and New Jersey.
Determining Who Is Liable By Finding Out Who Is At Fault
Similar to other drivers, they face the same set of circumstances. Perhaps they were speeding or they failed to yield. Other times they might have been distracted or following too closely to another car. Regardless, if you’ve been involved in a rideshare accident, an experienced attorney is the best person to handle your case. These cases are quite complex, and we can help you understand your options.
Determining who will pay for your injuries depends on a few different factors. Who was at fault in the accident is most important. Insurance coverage also plays a significant role. If the driver was on its way to pick you up, Uber’s policy would cover you. They maintain a $1,000,000 policy. That being said, a driver is also required to have their own form of insurance. This comes into play when they are waiting for a rider to request service.
