Uber & Lyft Accident Attorneys in Lawrenceville

Fighting for Your Right to Fair Compensation

A growing number of people are choosing rideshare apps, like Uber and Lyft, for safe and affordable transportation. However, as more and more rideshare drivers take to Georgia’s highways and roads, there has been a proportionate increase in Uber and Lyft accidents throughout the state.

Just like victims of other types of car accidents, those involved in collisions with Ubers and Lyfts (either as passengers, pedestrians, or occupants of other vehicles) have the right to seek compensation for their damages. These are complex claims, and it is wise to contact an experienced Lawrenceville Uber and Lyft accident attorney who can help you navigate the personal injury process.

Call Kalka & Baer LLC at (770) 637-3738 or contact us online for a free case evaluation today. We have over 30 years of combined experience that we are prepared to put to work for you.

Who Is Liable for Your Damages?

Determining liability for your damages following an Uber or Lyft accident is complex and depends greatly on the specific circumstances involved. Both Uber and Lyft offer third-party insurance coverage that is contingent upon whether the Uber/Lyft driver had the app turned on, had accepted a ride, or was transporting a passenger at the time of the collision. This coverage typically kicks in only when the rideshare driver’s own auto insurance policy fails to cover the cost of your damages.

Uber and Lyft offer the following coverage:

  • Up to $1 million in bodily injury and property damage per accident when the Uber/Lyft driver had the app turned on and had accepted a ride/was transporting a passenger at the time of the accident.
  • Up to $50,000 per injury/$100,000 per accident in bodily injury and up to $25,000 in property damage when the Uber/Lyft driver has the app turned on but has not yet accepted a ride.

This coverage applies in situations where the Uber/Lyft driver is at fault for the accident or when a third party is at fault for the accident but lacks sufficient insurance to pay for damages (uninsured motorist coverage).

It is important to note that both Uber and Lyft classify their drivers as “contractors,” not employees. Because of this, they are generally not considered liable for the actions of their drivers, meaning you will likely not be able to sue Uber or Lyft directly if you are hit by one of their drivers. It is incredibly important that you speak to a knowledgeable attorney who can help you clearly understand your options and your right to a fair recovery.
