Hold Rideshare Companies And Their Drivers Accountable For Accidents

When you contact a rideshare service such as Uber or Lyft, you trust that you will arrive at your destination safely. Unfortunately, far too many people suffer serious injuries as the result of rideshare accidents that involve negligence on the part of the company, the driver or another party.

At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, we believe in holding the perpetrator accountable for the harm they caused you. Our team of attorneys has more than 75 years of combined experience and has recovered more than $100 million in compensation for our clients. Whether you have been injured as a rideshare passenger or driver or injured by someone driving an Uber, Lyft or another rideshare vehicle, you may have a legal claim.

How Rideshare Accidents Differ From Other Car Accidents

Most motor vehicle crashes involve just two parties: The drivers of the cars. Crashes involving rideshares, though, often have more than one source of liability. The at-fault party could be the rideshare driver, the driver of the other vehicle or the rideshare company itself.

Rideshare companies also have teams of their own attorneys at the ready to defend them. They do whatever they can to avoid having to pay your settlement or award. To take them on successfully, you will need the support of your own legal counsel.

You Might Still Have A Claim Months After An Injury

Many injuries do not appear until weeks, months or even years after a crash. Some common conditions that take time to develop include chronic pain, neck and back issues, and conditions related to concussions. In New York State, you have up to three years from the date of your accident to file an injury lawsuit. However, it is very important that you do not accept an insurance settlement, as this usually means you forfeit the right to seek additional compensation. Always speak with a lawyer first.
