Injured In An Uber Or Lyft Accident In Oxford?
Traditional taxi services have been overshadowed in many places throughout the U.S., including Oxford, Ohio. Even the city’s website lists Uber and Lyft as possible public transportation options while only mentioning taxis in a generic way. Miami University students who need rides around town or even to go out of town may rely on Uber and Lyft as a first option based on their familiarity with rideshare services and the availability of drivers with these companies.
Safety concerns in traffic apply to Uber and Lyft-operated cars, SUVs and other types of vehicles just as they do to any motor vehicle. If you were injured in a crash involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle, you may have insurance complications to overcome along with your medical recovery. At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, we have a great deal of experience handling injury claims and lawsuits for local clients who have been hurt in Uber and Lyft accidents.
Ask For Advice About Any Accident Involving A Rideshare Vehicle
Our attorneys represent Uber and Lyft passengers as well as others who have been injured in circumstances such as the following:
- A collision between an Uber or Lyft car and another car on the road.
- A one-car collision involving a rideshare vehicle.
- An accident inflicting injury on a pedestrian or bicyclist.
Every accident includes unique facts that must be considered when an injured person seeks compensation. For example, was it a hit-and-run accident involving another car or truck that sped away? Does any driver involved in the accident lack sufficient insurance to cover the expenses of the injured person?
Our motor vehicle attorneys have experience and many accomplishments representing clients who had been injured in Uber and Lyft accidents. As a well-coordinated personal injury team, we will get to the bottom of key elements of your accident, including:
- Whether the rideshare company driver was obeying traffic rules and following company procedures
- Whether that driver had the Uber or Lyft app running
- Which drivers had insurance and how adequate it is in its totality for the injuries incurred
Most importantly in an Uber or Lyft vehicle accident, did the driver have their rideshare company app activated at the time of the crash? If so, an injured person may have up to $1 million available through Uber or Lyft.
