Representation For Uber And Lyft Accidents In Cincinnati
If you were a passenger and you used the Uber or Lyft app to request your ride, then you are covered for up to $1 million in liability coverage in an accident. This also applies if you were in your own vehicle and were hit by an Uber or Lyft driver who was carrying a passenger at the time of the accident.
Getting compensation can still be a battle, though. You will need an attorney who has experience with these accidents in Cincinnati. Our lawyers understand the complex nature of these cases, and they will work diligently to determine liability and get the compensation you need.
Why Are Accidents Common In Rideshare Vehicles?
Rideshare drivers have a lot happening at once when they are driving, so it is easy for them to lose focus. Common reasons behind Uber and Lyft accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs
- Talking on the phone
- Looking at the GPS
- Failing to stop at intersections
Whether you were a passenger, another driver or a pedestrian in the greater Cincinnati area, you can file a claim for compensation if you were injured or lost a family member in an accident caused by an Uber or Lyft driver.
