At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., we have handled ride-share passenger injury cases involving Uber, Lyft, peer-to-peer, and vanpooling. As such, we know that the laws surrounding ride-share car crashes are complicated. Without a seasoned New York rideshare accident attorney by your side, you may struggle to find answers to the most basic questions. We have worked on cases like these since their inception.
Who Pays In A Ride-Share Crash?
If you are injured in a ride-share crash, you will face an uphill battle to obtain compensation. Unlike other car accidents, collecting payment from the negligent driver’s insurance carrier may not be an option in ride-share claims. Victims of ride-share crashes can only receive from the driver’s insurance carrier if the driver is covered under a commercial policy. Personal car insurance will not suffice.
If your driver did not carry commercial policy coverage, however, you are not out of luck. Our attorneys have built countless cases for clients and helped to collect compensation through the liability insurance coverage provided by Lyft and Uber.
According to New York state law, these companies must carry some insurance for their riders and drivers. Their liability coverage should be $1,250,000 per accident during the time of the service, which also includes coverage for underinsured or uninsured motorists. Drivers even have coverage for up to $75,000 per injury when they are simply waiting to accept a ride request.
Ride-share and passenger injury claims are notoriously convoluted, and not just any attorney can get you what you are legally entitled to receive. Hire the top ride-share attorneys in New York to handle your case and find solutions.
