Injured In An Uber Or Lyft Accident?
The rise in ride-sharing apps also brings a rise in auto accidents for passengers of these vehicles. You don’t know your Uber or Lyft driver, and are essentially trusting a stranger to safely drive you to your destination. But many times, whether it’s your driver’s fault or not, you may end up in a serious auto accident that’s out of your control. At Godosky & Gentile, we champion New York City accident victims who are injured in an Uber or Lyft accident.
Rideshare Companies Have Their Own Insurance
Our attorneys take the time to fully evaluate your injuries and pursue damages from every party involved. It’s important to remember that not only do both drivers most likely have insurance, but Uber and Lyft have insurance for you as well. This means there are multiple sources of compensation you are eligible to receive:
- Your driver’s insurance. Every Uber and Lyft driver has to have their own insurance. Whether it is a personal policy or a special rideshare policy, this is one of the first sources to tap into when you are injured as a passenger of their vehicle.
- The other driver’s insurance. When the other driver is at fault, you can pursue damages from their insurance company just as in a normal car accident.
- Uber and Lyft’s insurance. As a supplement to each driver’s insurance, Uber and Lyft offer additional coverage for injured passengers. If the other insurance companies deny your claim or are unable to cover the full costs of your injury, Uber and Lyft offer up to $1 million in compensation for the accident.
The lawyers at Godosky & Gentile take Uber and Lyft accidents seriously. We have secured millions of dollars in compensation for accident victims across New York, and know what it takes to maximize your recovery.
