Uber/UberX/Lyft Accident Lawsuits
Conley Griggs Partin LLP is your trusted partner when it comes to accident lawsuits involving Uber, UberX or Lyft. Rideshare companies including Uber, UberX and Lyft have seen a dramatic rise in usage among Georgia residents and visitors over the past several years. People in Atlanta and other major cities in Georgia are now using these rideshare companies as a regular means of transportation. With this increase, Georgia has also seen a dramatic rise in the number of automobile accidents involving rideshare vehicles. Passengers, pedestrians and other drivers who have been involved in accidents caused by the drivers of such vehicles are entitled to compensation for all injuries and harms suffered. However, in accidents involving rideshare companies, several parties can be held liable including the driver of the vehicle, the owners of the car, and the rideshare company itself. This can make it difficult to sort out once an accident has occurred. For this reason, it is vitally important to contact an experienced accident insurance lawyer if you or a family member is involved in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle.
Here are some important facts to know about Uber and Uber X:
• UberX drivers are covered under a $100,000 policy through Uber if their personal
policy does not apply
• Uber drivers have commercial limo policies of $1,000,000
Due to the rise in popularity of rideshare companies like Uber, UberX and Lyft, the auto insurance landscape in Georgia is constantly changing. This is another reason to make sure that you are working with an accident insurance lawyer who is up to date on the latest legislation pertaining to rideshare accidents.
Accidents involving rideshare companies can generally take one of three forms:
1. An individual/group of individuals is injured while a passenger in an Uber, UberX or Lyft car
2. An individual who is driving or riding in another vehicle is hit by a rideshare car
3. A pedestrian, motorcyclists or bicyclists is hit by a rideshare car
