New York Rideshare Accident Lawyers

Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured in Uber, Lyft, or Taxi Accidents

Ridesharing is the new age of hailing a taxicab in New York City and beyond. With the rapid growth of ridesharing, though, the incidents of ridesharing accidents have been on the rise as well. Liability laws have struggled to keep up with the changing transportation landscape and create a fair legal environment for rideshare riders, drivers, and companies. It might be no surprise that rideshare accident claims can be some of the most complex and hotly contested vehicle accident claims in the legal world.

Contact our firm today at (888) 365-4940 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with our rideshare accident attorney in New York.

Types of Injuries Sustained in NYC Rideshare Accidents

Common injuries may include:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: The sudden effect of a crash can cause the head and neck to jerk forcefully, leading to whiplash. This common injury can result in pain, stiffness, and long-term discomfort.
  • Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can occur because of the force of impact during a rideshare accident. Even seemingly minor head injuries can have everlasting consequences, affecting cognitive function and overall well-being.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The force of a collision can injure the spinal cord, resulting in paralysis or other serious complications. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and long-term care.
  • Broken Bones: Fractures and broken bones are extremely common in rideshare accidents, especially in situations where the vehicle occupants are forcefully thrown against surfaces within the car.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Muscles, tendons, and ligaments can be damaged during a rideshare accident, causing pain, swelling, and limited mobility. Soft tissue injuries may not be instantly apparent but can significantly impact a victim's life.
  • Emotional Distress: Beyond physical injuries, rideshare accidents can cause emotional trauma like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Understanding Rideshare Insurance Policies

Uber has made headlines by promising to cover every Uber ride service with a $1 million insurance policy that can help pay for medical bills suffered by any passengers. It has also made headlines by complicating that promise with fine print. When is an Uber driver actually covered under the policy? Simply using the app does not seem to be the answer that Uber wants to give, as it argues that they must be actively driving a paying Uber customer around at the time of the accident for there to be coverage.

Rideshare insurance policies offered by Uber and Lyft also do not consider other damages, like:

  • Wages lost due to missing work
  • Property repair and replacement
  • Emotional trauma, pain, and suffering

Other drivers who are hurt by a rideshare driver will also be put into a difficult situation. Do they need to file a claim against the driver or the rideshare company? As your New York rideshare car accident legal team, we can help you decide how to file a claim and what to do to progress it.
