What Is an Uber Accident Claim or Lyft Accident Claim?

An Uber/Lyft accident claim is a claim for monetary compensation. You may have a legal right to compensation based on the Florida laws that protect accident victims. A claim is a process of stating your right to payment and demanding that the responsible party pay. The purpose of an Uber/Lyft accident claim is to help an accident victim receive a fair amount when they’re injured by someone else’s poor driving.In some cases, you can negotiate your case directly with the insurance company. With the help of your attorney, you can demand compensation directly from Uber and Lyft through their driver guarantee policies, or from the responsible party’s car insurance. If the insurance company or the rideshare company refuses to pay you for the value of your case, you may bring a legal claim for compensation. You have the right to representation from an experienced Uber/Lyft accident lawyer.

Do I Have an Uber/Lyft Accident Claim?

Here are some circumstances where you may have an Uber or Lyft accident claim:

  • You are a passenger in an Uber vehicle and your driver is at fault for an accident
  • The other driver is at fault for the accident. The driver of your vehicle is not to blame, but you are still hurt in the accident
  • An accident occurs while you are entering or exiting an Uber or Lyft vehicle
  • You’re a driver or passenger in another vehicle, and the Uber driver is at fault for the accident
  • Either driver is drunk and you’re hurt as a result
  • Any party is responsible for negligent, reckless or intentional conduct that causes a crash

The Uber/Lyft driver might be the party at fault. Speeding, cutting across lanes of traffic, driving off before you’re settled in the vehicle or failing to obey traffic signals are just a few ways that your Uber/Lyft driver may cause an accident. As a commercial driver, the driving standards for a rideshare driver are higher than they are for the general population. Common Uber/Lyft accident claims are based on the rideshare driver being the one that causes the crash.

However, you might also have an Uber or Lyft accident claim when it’s another driver who is at fault. Legal standards of car accident liability apply when a rideshare driver hits you. When a crash occurs, you may have a case against the rideshare company, your rideshare driver or a driver in another vehicle. The exact path to pursue fair compensation depends on the cause of the accident and who is at fault.
