Ridesharing is a service that provides one-way transportation on short notice. To use a ridesharing service, you need a smartphone, a credit card or PayPal account, and the app for a rideshare company downloaded on your phone. Simply sign into the app, enter your destination, and a nearby driver with the rideshare company will accept your ride request. The driver picks you up, transports you to your destination, and your credit card is automatically charged. No cash or credit card information is exchanged with the driver.
Rideshare accidents are automobile collisions, like any other. Factors contributing to rideshare wrecks may include:
If you were hurt in an Uber or Lyft accident that was not your fault, you are entitled to pursue compensation for your injuries, a Gwinnett County rideshare accident attorney can help you with your claim. This is true whether you were a rideshare passenger, a driver who was hit by another vehicle, or motorist, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian hit by a rideshare driver. Responsibility for your injuries in a crash caused by a ridesharing company driver can depend on what he or she was doing at the time the accident occurred. If the driver was “on the clock,” Uber or Lyft may be liable. Our Georgia personal injury attorneys can investigate your rideshare accident to determine fault and liability.
