Serving Accident Victims Throughout Las Vegas

Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft have grown increasingly popular for individuals and small groups of people in our region as well as throughout the country. These companies provide convenience and cost-effectiveness for those who wish to avoid the responsibility of driving to and from social events or those temporarily or permanently without vehicles. They also mean fewer vehicles on the road which is good for everyone. However, just like any other form of transportation, rideshares can result in traffic accidents that can leave you injured and facing a mountain of expenses while unable to work. 

Seeking compensation for your injuries in a rideshare accident can be complicated. Rideshare drivers are not considered common carriers, like taxi drivers. Who can be held responsible for damages in a rideshare accident can depend on various factors, which is why you should turn to a trusted attorney for help. At Sierra Nevada Injury Lawyers, we can thoroughly investigate all aspects of your rideshare accident to determine who can be held financially accountable for your damages and losses.

Liable Parties in a Rideshare Accident

Rideshare companies, such as Uber and Lyft, carry insurance policies for their drivers. The drivers who use their own vehicles for these companies also must carry their own auto insurance coverage. Thus, either one of these parties may be liable for damages in an accident in which you are injured.

Several factors must be examined to determine liability, such as:

If a driver other than the rideshare driver caused the accident, his or her insurance company will be responsible for paying the injury claim. If the rideshare driver caused the accident while logged into the app, Uber or Lyft’s insurance will likely be responsible for the claim. If the rideshare driver was not logged in and thus not at that moment working for the rideshare company, his or her personal auto insurance will be responsible for covering the injury claim.

Rideshare injury claims will cover the same damages as any other car accident claim, including your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, and any needed therapies, such as physical therapy, as well as out-of-pocket expenses related to your injuries. Our firm can document these to prove your damages as well as provide evidence of fault through police reports, photographs of the accident scene, witness reports, camera footage, and any other available evidence. We can then engage in aggressive negotiation with the proper insurer to counteract any attempts they make to deny or reduce the full value of your claim.

Through our intensive actions, we can take all necessary steps to help you recover the compensation to which you are entitled, removing this burden from your shoulders. You should never have to fight for what you are owed while temporarily or permanently disabled from accident-related injuries. Let our firm do the heavy lifting while you focus on putting your health and your life back together.
