Rideshare Accidents

Were You Injured in a Rideshare Accident?

Ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft are extremely popular these days. In the best situations, they can provide a convenient way to get around town. Uber was founded in 2010, but by 2017 the company reported that it had already given over 5 billion rides. In many cities, apps like Uber and Lyft are more ubiquitous than taxicabs. Why are these apps so popular? One reason is that when you meet up with your driver, you have every right to expect a reasonable and safe trip to your destination.

Unfortunately, trips on ride-sharing apps do not always go as planned. Some drivers may be intoxicated or distracted, putting passengers at risk. Others may simply drive carelessly and recklessly. Regardless, if you are injured due to a driver’s negligence, they should be held accountable for their actions.

Your Options

The consequences of car accidents can be extremely severe, including nerve damage, broken bones, and even loss of life. If you or a loved one were injured in such an accident, you may be struggling with large medical bills or unsure when you will be able to return to work.

If your injuries were the result of a ride-sharing driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. While money cannot make up for the frightening experience of being in a car accident, it can go a long way toward holding reckless drivers accountable.
