Frederick Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyers

Personalized Representation for Uber/Lyft Crash Victims

Uber and Lyft provide a convenient and affordable alternative to traditional taxi services. However, the number of Uber/Lyft accidents has increased with more rideshare drivers. Accidents caused by rideshare drivers can be devastating, resulting in serious or catastrophic injuries and financial losses for passengers, pedestrians, and other motorists. Holding the driver or the rideshare company responsible for the damages is essential. If you've been injured in an Uber/Lyft accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related expenses and losses. Working with an experienced attorney can help ensure that your claim is handled appropriately and that you seek just compensation for your injuries.

Determining Liability in Uber/Lyft Accidents

Determining liability can be complex, requiring a careful examination of the accident's circumstances. Understanding who is responsible is critical for seeking just compensation.

The responsibility for an Uber or Lyft accident can often depend on when the crash occurred. For instance, if the driver was not responding to a call or was not transporting a passenger at the time of the collision, they may be held responsible for damages. However, if the driver had the app on and was waiting for or answering a ride request, the rideshare company may be liable.

At Metzger Wickersham, we understand the complexities of determining liability in Uber and Lyft accidents. Our experienced attorneys have the knowledge and resources to build a strong case. We thoroughly investigate, identify responsible parties, and pursue financial recovery for our clients.

Steps to Take After an Uber/Lyft Accident

Being involved in an Uber or Lyft accident can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. However, taking the proper steps after the crash can help as you pursue just compensation.

Below are important actions following a collision:

  • Seek medical attention: Your health and well-being should be your top priority after an accident. Even if you feel fine, seeking medical attention as soon as possible is vital to identify any injuries that may not be immediately apparent.
  • Report the accident to the police: It's essential to call the police and report the accident, even if it seems minor. The police report can be valuable evidence when pursuing compensation for damages.
  • Collect information: Obtain the driver's name and contact information, as well as the make and model of the vehicle. If possible, take photos of the scene, including vehicle damage and visible injuries.
  • Preserve evidence: Preserving accident-related evidence is important, including medical records, police reports, and photos. Avoid posting about the accident on social media, as it could be used against you in court.
  • Contact an attorney: An experienced personal injury attorney can help protect your legal rights. They can guide you through the legal process and handle negotiations with insurance companies or present your case in court.

Our Uber and Lyft accident lawyers in Frederick help clients through every step of the process. We give practical advice and guidance to ensure that those we serve are confident in how their cases progress.
