Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of death and injury in the United States. For most traffic accidents, you only deal with your insurer and the insurer of the other party involved in the accident with you. However, when ridesharing vehicles such as those being driven for Uber or Lyft are involved in an accident, you will have to deal with Uber and/or Lyft as well as their insurers. This can make retrieving compensation for your losses and damages that much more difficult, especially if you are hurt after an accident. For assistance with personal injury and ridesharing accident cases and filing a claim for your losses, contact Camili & Capo, PA’s New Brunswick Uber/Lyft Accident Lawyer today.
Ridesharing services have grown in popularity over the last few years. This has led to an increase in the number of Uber and Lyft vehicles on the roads, as well as an increase in the number of passengers using these services. With so many accidents involving Uber and Lyft occurring on a regular basis, new laws were passed in New Jersey to clarify who, when, why, and how different parties involved in an accident will be deemed at fault for an accident. This is then used to determine how much compensation the injured victims involved in the accident will be entitled to receive.
The law requires all rideshare services to provide insurance coverage. This coverage is broken down as follows:
If you were involved in an accident with a rideshare driver who was not logged into the Uber or Lyft mobile application when your accident occurred, then Uber/Lyft will not be responsible for compensating you and you will have to work with the driver directly and use their personal auto insurance policy for compensation.

The law does not require you to secure the services of an attorney to file a claim with the Uber or Lyft insurance company responsible for your claim or for filing a lawsuit in court against the parties you deem responsible for your accident and injuries. However, those parties will do whatever they can to avoid or at least minimize whatever they may have to pay you, even if you suffered serious or long-term injuries or losses that entitle you to more compensation. Furthermore, without extensive experience handling personal injury and ridesharing cases and claims, you may miss important deadlines or neglect important pieces of evidence, so it is best to leave the technical and legal aspects of your claim to our experienced Lyft accident attorney in New Brunswick, NJ so that you can focus on recovering and getting your life back on track while we ensure your rights and financial wellbeing are secured via aggressive negotiations and pursual of a full and fair settlement.
The party responsible for your Uber or Lyft accident will be liable for compensating you for your injuries and medical treatment costs, but the reality is that it can take a considerable amount of time before you receive money in the bank. You may be able to recover some of your costs using the personal injury coverage of your own auto policy or health insurance coverage, but you may face various out-of-pocket expenses while we pursue your claim. This is why you should not delay and contact our New Brunswick Uber accident lawyer today to get your case underway.
