Ride Share Accidents
The popularity of rideshares such as Uber and Lyft continue to grow in Arizona. These and other rideshare apps offer quick and easy and sometimes cheaper rides than a taxi, and promote their rides as a safer alternative. When you schedule an Uber vehicle, you are accepting a ride from a strange person. As part of the price, you pay a safe ride fee, which Uber claims covers driver safety education, vehicle screenings, and background checks of its drivers.
Despite all efforts to provide share ride safety, accidents still happen. What will happen if you sustain an injury in a share ride accident? Uber passengers and drivers are covered in an insurance plan, but this coverage does depend on the circumstances and activity when the accident happened. For example, if an accident happens when an Uber driver is transporting a passenger, both the rider and the driver would be covered under Uber’s liability policy.
Getting an attorney if you are involved in a rideshare accident is uber-important
Yes, Uber has the above mentioned insurance policy that is supposed to offer coverage in case of an accident involving an Uber driver, but getting compensation for a claim may not be so easy. Uber’s insurance company will likely fight a claim for injury compensation. Uber has denied liability because they claim that technically Uber drivers aren’t Uber employees. They are “independent contractors” and therefore the company is not liable.

I was very impressed with this firm. My attorney, Mr. Ramirez, was so professional and confident. He listened to my needs and got me a great settlement for my injuries.
I was scared that I would not be able to provide for my family after my accident. Lisa M. handled my case and was able to get me the settlement that I needed. I was very happy with the legal service provided by this firm.
I wasn’t sure if I even had a claim for workman’s comp. I visited with Anthony R. and he gave me information and answered my questions. I ended up with a case and a win. Impressive.
