Rideshare Accidents

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Lyft Accident Attorney for
Rideshare Car Accidents

Ridesharing has quickly become commonplace in our everyday lives.

The idea has a certain appeal: thanks to an easy-to-use app on our smartphones, passengers can get a ride, and drivers can find passengers. As with any new technology, however, there are unforeseen complications. For ridesharing, those complications arise at the worst possible time – when you’ve been involved in an accident. An Atlanta Lyft accident attorney can help you navigate this process and get the compensation you need if you’ve been injured in a rideshare accident.

Common Causes of Lyft and Rideshare Accidents in Atlanta

There are several factors that can lead to rideshare accidents:

  • Fatigue and drowsy driving. Uber and Lyft drivers work for the service as a second income. They often drive late at night after working long hours, meaning that they are less alert with slower reaction times.
  • Poor vehicle maintenance. It’s no secret that Uber and Lyft do not pay that well. As a result, drivers may neglect properly maintaining their vehicles. This can result in a mechanical failure that leads to an accident.
  • Passenger behavior. Many people use ridesharing services to get home after they have been drinking. Drunk or unruly passengers can distract the driver and lead to an accident.
  • Unsafe driving. Uber and Lyft drivers are paid for each trip they make. As a result, they are arguably incentivized to complete each trip as quickly as possible. Speeding, unsafe lane changes, or other hazardous driving behaviors can easily cause an accident.

An experienced Atlanta Lyft accident attorney can provide guidance as to whether the rideshare driver’s actions caused your accident and help you understand your options.

Are Ridesharing Car Accidents Covered by My Insurance?

Like almost every other state, Georgia requires all motorists to cover a minimum amount of liability insurance to provide coverage in the event of an accident. As a result, all Uber and Lyft drivers must carry their own insurance coverage. Unfortunately, many insurance companies will deny claims that arise when their customers are driving “for hire” unless they purchase a commercial policy. As a result, Lyft drivers may not have the resources to pay claims that arise from accidents.

Thankfully, both Uber and Lyft provide some coverage for their drivers. However, when the accident occurred and who was at fault will be important. In addition, you will still need to pursue a claim under the driver’s policy for any damages that exceed the amount of Lyft or Uber’s policy, which could be problematic if the driver let their insurance lapse or their insurance company denies coverage as described above. An Atlanta Lyft accident attorney can navigate these issues so that you can focus on your recovery.
