If you were injured in an Uber or Lyft accident in Elizabeth, NJ that wasn’t your fault, you may think that you can simply file a claim with Uber or Lyft. Unfortunately, even though there are new laws in New Jersey that were passed specifically to make it easier and more accommodating for injured accident victims to seek the compensation they deserve, the truth is that doing so can be quite difficult.
