Ride Share Accidents

Ride Share Accident Lawyers in Cincinnati

Helping You, No Matter How Big or Small Your Injuries

Ride sharing is becoming a popular way to conserve fuel, protect the environment, and minimize traffic while enhancing your morning commute. Carma, Uber, and Lyft are just a few of the many companies who offer ride share services by connecting commuters to others who are traveling to the same destination at the same time.

While ride sharing can be very beneficial, it can also be dangerous. When you ride share, you place implicit trust in your driver. If you were involved in a car accident during your ride, contact a Cincinnati personal injury attorney at Spivak & Sakellariou right away to put our attorneys on your side.

Call (513) 532-2201 to speak directly with one of our attorneys.

We Are Not Intimidated by Big Ride Share Companies

Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have provisions in place to protect themselves from accident lawsuits. They operate on a three-tier insurance scheme, which protects drivers and passengers when they are hurt in an accident. According to their insurance policies, Uber insures both drivers and passengers up to one million dollars during a paid Uber ride. While this insurance coverage should compensate you for all of your losses, incidents are not always so black and white.

Many ride sharing companies designate their drivers as independent contractors. If you are hurt in an Uber or Lyft accident, you may not be able to sue the company because the driver is not a direct employee. While you may be able to litigate or negotiate with the driver of the car, chances are that he or she will not have significant funds to cover your expenses.

If you are harmed in a ride share accident, make sure to note the following in order to help your claim:

  • The name of your driver
  • Insurance information for your driver
  • The license plate of the car
  • Details about the accident
  • Copies of the police report
  • Details about the rideshare including who was in the car and what app was being used
  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Copies of your medical records from the crash
