That’s why our Indiana rideshare accident attorneys want to meet with you.

That’s why we want to meet with you and discuss your ridesharing accident case.

What makes ridesharing accidents so complicated?

Car accidents involving ridesharing companies (including Uber, Lyft, Carma, BlaBlaCar, etc.) can be complicated for many different reasons from a legal standpoint. Some of the most common reasons why ridesharing accidents present so many challenges include:

  • Ridesharing drivers do not have any special driver’s license like taxi drivers.
  • A ridesharing driver was operating an app at the time of your car accident.
  • The ridesharing driver was traveling to pick up a passenger when they hit your car.
  • A ridesharing driver was carrying passengers at the time of your car accident.
  • Insurance coverage different for ridesharing vehicles.
  • A ridesharing driver denies causing your car crash.
  • You were injured while a passenger in a ridesharing vehicle involved in a crash.

Different rules apply to different ridesharing accidents. Certain rules apply when the driver has the app on and a car accident occurs. Other rules apply when the ridesharing app is off and a car accident occurs.

Most regular car insurance policies do not cover accidents involving ridesharing drivers. Instead, Uber, Lyft and other ridesharing services drivers are required to obtain supplemental car insurance. This extra insurance coverage might not cover all your accident-related expenses. That’s why it’s important to talk to us as soon as possible about your legal rights.

Put the power of an experienced, ridesharing accident lawyer to work for you

Don’t underestimate the complexity of your Uber accident, Lyft accident or a crash involving another ridesharing service. The ridesharing driver might not have the right insurance coverage or not enough insurance. They might try to claim you caused the crash. The ridesharing company they work for might get involved – along with all their lawyers – for one simple reason – to deny your car accident claim.

We know how to track down important evidence. We then use that information to negotiate with insurance providers or ridesharing companies.
