Can I sue if I am a passenger in a rideshare vehicle and we get in an accident? YES!
When you are injured in an accident, during a rideshare, you can be compensated by the “at fault” driver. If the Uber/Lyft driver you are traveling in is “at fault,” then typically their business insurance will cover your claim. As personal injury attorneys, we want you to get fully compensated for being injured. Compensation is most often calculated by the severity of the injuries and the required medical care (both present and future). The greater the injuries, typically the greater the recovery. Compensation often includes, the cost of medical care for your injuries (current and future care), loss of income (current and future), long term accommodations (if needed), and pain and suffering.
Rideshare companies have large insurance policies, but they do not always like to give fair compensation to injured parties. In addition, they offer no training to their “professional” drivers. In order to get full compensation for your injuries, please contact BRUNO | NALU to identify all the insurance policies that may be available, and take the necessary steps to get the real value for your case.
