Who Is Responsible In A Rideshare Accident?

Rideshare services such as Uber, Lyft and Sidecar have grown in popularity over recent years. Unfortunately, many rideshare companies do not adequately vet the drivers they hire. If you have been injured in an auto accident caused by a rideshare driver, you may wonder where you can turn.

At Egerton Law, all three of our attorneys have over 20 years of experience helping injured clients. We know what it takes to fight for the compensation you need and deserve. We also understand North Carolina’s laws regarding the rideshare industry and can help you navigate your claim.

Insurance Requirements For Rideshare Companies

The law requires rideshare companies to carry insurance to cover any injuries or property damage their drivers cause when picking up or driving riders. For example, Uber maintains the following auto insurance on your behalf in case of a covered car accident:

  • $1,000,000 third-party liability if the driver is responsible
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury
  • Contingent comprehensive and collision

Convincing insurance companies to pay a fair amount for serious injuries can be difficult without the help of an experienced lawyer, however. Insurance companies will always try to pay you the least amount possible for your claim. We will always look out for your best interest.

What About The Other Driver?

You may be entitled to compensation from more than one source if another driver was also involved in the accident. Your case could involve questions of who caused the accident. Our lawyers will review liability and insurance policies from all drivers involved in the accident and help you obtain full compensation.
