Can I receive compensation if I’m injured in an Uber or Lyft vehicle?
I had a client who was injured while she was in an Uber. Her concern was that there was not going to be any coverage for her injuries. Anybody who’s in an accident, regardless of whether it was a Lift or Uber, have to call the police. The Uber driver doesn’t want to call the police. The Uber driver wants to just resolve it and have everybody go on their way. They don’t have regard for the passengers or whether their passengers are injured.
The Uber driver may be negligent. The other motorist may be negligent. Ultimately, you may have a claim against the Uber corporation itself if they had a role in this. Those are things that are going to have to be investigated and fully prosecuted by a firm to get full compensation in a case where somebody’s been injured as a passenger in a Lyft or Uber.
