By Your Side After Your Rideshare Accident

Rideshare companies are not shy when it comes to boasting about the positive impact that their services have on the customers and their drivers. Whether you live in Illinois or Arizona, it’s likely that you have benefitted from the on-demand driving services that Lyft, Uber and other rideshare companies offer. Unfortunately, it’s also likely that you’ve heard of motor vehicle accidents involving these services, too.

How We Can Help You

Serious car accident claims are rarely easy to resolve without an experienced attorney by your side. After an accident, you may take the appropriate steps to secure evidence and contact the police about the crash. Unfortunately, it isn’t enough to take these actions. Incidents involving rideshare vehicles add another layer of complexity to this personal injury issue.

In order to secure compensation, you’ll need to establish that a negligent party is responsible for the injuries that you have suffered. You’ll also need to file a claim with the correct insurance company and understand which type of policy covers your claim. Neither of these tasks is easy as it seems because:

  • If your driver is classified as an independent contractor, it can be difficult to determine whether to file a claim with the driver’s personal insurance company or the rideshare’s insurance provider.
  • The rideshare company’s insurance may offer different types of coverage based on when the accident occurred. For example, you may be entitled to a lower level of compensation if you were involved in a rideshare accident before your fare was accepted. If your fare was accepted and you were hurt en route to your destination, you could be entitled to a higher level of compensation.

There are other factors that can affect your outcome as well. This is where we come in. Our lawyers are well-versed in rideshare insurance policies. They know how to build strong arguments. They are equipped to negotiate fair settlements or fight for full compensation in Illinois or Arizona courtrooms.

When you are recovering from a catastrophic motor vehicle accident involving a rideshare vehicle, you should not face these problems alone. Turn to our team at Levin, Riback & Adelman and get a knowledgeable, aggressive legal ally in your corner.
