Injured in a ride-share car accident?

Lyft, Uber and various other ride-share services have popped up over the years. They are very popular in New York and all across the country, as they are easy to access, relatively inexpensive and make getting around town a little less stressful. What happens, though, if one is injured in a ride-share car accident?

Car accidents happen all the time. Those who are passengers in ride-share vehicles when collisions occur may not know what to do after the fact and who is even considered responsible for their losses. The truth is, it all depends on the details of the event.

The ride-share driver/company may be held responsible if the ride-share driver caused the accident. In such cases, their insurance should pick up the tab for any medical bills and other losses experienced by the victim. If the other driver is thought responsible, then his or her insurance would be tapped for compensation.

What is insurance is not enough? Great question! It is not uncommon for insurance to pay out as little as possible. When this happens, legal actions may be necessary in order to seek fair and full compensation.

Following a ride-share car accident, civil claims may be filed against all parties whose negligent actions contributed to the event. A personal injury claim that is filed and successfully litigated in a New York court may result in the awarding of a monetary judgment. The sum of the judgment will depend on the losses experienced as a result of the wreck.
