Rideshare Accidents

Savannah Rideshare Accident Attorneys

Trusted Lawyers Help Find Fault and Navigate Insurance Claims

Although Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare drivers operate their vehicles professionally, they do not have any special training or qualifications. As such, they are no less likely to get into a car accident than other drivers on the road. The main difference between everyday accidents and rideshare accidents ultimately comes down to insurance. At Tate Law Group, LLC, we can help you determine who is at fault and navigate the complex insurance issues that may arise, thus increasing your chance at maximum compensation.

Finding Fault

Just like in other car accidents, an Uber or Lyft driver may behave negligently. In fact, because they must pay attention to their phones and GPS devices to complete their job, rideshare drivers can often be susceptible to distracted driving. Other common causes of rideshare accidents include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Driver inexperience
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Failing to consider weather, road, and traffic conditions
  • Failing to yield right of way
  • Disregarding traffic signs and signals

If your rideshare driver exhibited any of the above behaviors, they can be found negligent and held liable for your accident.

Insurance Issues

Uber and Lyft require their drivers to carry insurance, so you should be able to file a claim with the driver’s insurance company – just like you would in any other accident. Unfortunately, in cases of severe or extensive injuries, a rideshare driver’s personal insurance may not cover all the damages you are entitled to. To account for this disparity, both Uber and Lyft carry third party liability insurance that can pay you up to $1 million in damages.

In the event that your driver is not responsible for the accident, Uber and Lyft may still need to step in. If the other driver’s insurance does not cover appropriate damages for your injuries and property loss, or if that driver is uninsured or fled the scene, Uber and Lyft should use their uninsured/underinsured insurance to cover your accident. Once again, this policy allows Uber and Lyft to cover up to $1 million per accident.

Hiring one of our experienced car accident lawyers at Tate Law Group, LLC can help you pursue the highest possible payout from both the driver’s and the company’s insurance. In the event the insurance carried by Uber or Lyft refuses to pay out, or fails to properly compensate you, our trial attorneys are prepared to file and fight a lawsuit against the companies themselves.
