Hurt in a Uber or Lyft Accident?
Getting Paid for Your Injuries May Be Complicated Without an Attorney!
While Uber and Lyft have become a popular way to get on-demand transportation, ride-sharing services have been linked to a recent rise in traffic fatalities. When an accident happens while using a Lyft, Uber, or taxi service, it can be extremely difficult to know who will pay for your injuries.
Another challenge is proving that the ride-share driver was negligent. To do so, you would have to establish the following:
- The driver had a duty of care—meaning they must operate their vehicles in a safe, law-abiding manner, free from the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- The driver breached this duty of care.
- You were injured.
- Your injuries were caused by the driver’s breach duty.
