Legal Guidance for Uber & Lyft Accident Claims with Doyle Accident & Injury Attorneys

The rise of ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft has transformed urban transportation, offering convenience and accessibility. However, the increase in their usage has also led to a rise in accidents involving these services. When you're involved in an accident as a rideshare passenger, driver, or third party, navigating the aftermath can be complex. Doyle Accident & Injury Attorneys specialize in rideshare accident cases, providing expert legal guidance to ensure your rights are protected.

Understanding Uber/Lyft Accidents

Uber and Lyft accidents can occur under various circumstances and can involve multiple parties, including the rideshare driver, the passenger, and other motorists or pedestrians. Identifying liability in these accidents is often more complicated than in traditional car accidents due to the multiple layers of insurance policies involved.

Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents

  • Driver Distraction: Many rideshare accidents occur because the driver was distracted by the rideshare app or other devices.

  • Fatigue: Rideshare drivers often work long hours, which can lead to fatigue and decreased reaction times.

  • Poor Vehicle Maintenance: Failure to maintain the vehicle properly can lead to mechanical failures that cause accidents.

Immediate Steps After a Rideshare Accident

If you find yourself involved in a rideshare accident, taking the right steps immediately can help protect your health and strengthen your legal case:

  1. Check for Injuries: Your health is the priority. Check yourself and others for injuries and call for medical help if needed.

  2. Contact Police: It’s crucial to have a police report for the accident, which serves as an important document in your claim.

  3. Document the Scene: Take photos and videos of the accident scene, including all vehicles involved, any visible injuries, and road conditions.

  4. Exchange Information: Collect contact and insurance information from all parties involved, including the rideshare driver and any other drivers.

  5. Contact Doyle Accident & Injury Attorneys: Consulting with our attorneys early can help ensure that your rights are fully protected throughout the legal process.
