Ridesharing has become, without a doubt, one of the most convenient ways to get around these days. With a few simple taps on your smart phone, you can have a ride sent over to your location for just a fraction of the price of a taxi. There are numerous upsides of this advent of technology, one of which is lessening the number of drunk drivers out on the road. While there is no doubt that Uber and Lyft have helped to curb that number and has no doubt saved lives, there are drawbacks to this app. If you or a loved one has been injured during a ridesharing commute, you might be at a loss with who to look to for compensation. The personal injury lawyers at the Law Firm of aneedaninjuryattorneymontana.com are here to help you answer these questions and get you the compensation that you deserve.
When accidents happen during ridesharing rides, the question that needs to be answered first is who is liable? If your driver was at fault, is it the driver’s commercial insurance, the driver’s personal insurance, or the app itself? In most cases, the driver’s commercial insurance, that is required by both Uber and Lyft before they can begin driving, will cover the injuries and damage that happened during the ride. However, there are times in which there is a denial of the claim in which our personal injury attorneys must look to either the driver’s personal insurance or Uber or Lyft. During these cases, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneymontana.com are here to make sure that you are represented fairly and all your needs are taken into consideration.
