It is not uncommon for people in New York to take Uber or Lyft to their destinations. Using rideshare services can save time and money, especially when traveling into New York City or one of the local airports. These rideshare services often provide safe and professional rides for people across New York.

However, like all drivers, rideshare drivers can be negligent. Vehicles may not be properly maintained.

If you get hurt in an Uber or get in a Lyft accident, call our rideshare accident lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers can determine who is at fault when you are the victim of an Uber accident and ensure you collect the maximum compensation the laws allow. Having skilled representation can be crucial to a successful claim. Call us today to find out how to protect your legal rights after you get injured in a New York ridesharing accident.

Our Lawyers Are Helping Victims of Ride Share Accidents Seek Compensation

Many clients come to us with these questions: Can you sue Uber after an accident? Will Lyft pay for my injuries? When negligence causes accidents and injuries, the victims may try to collect compensation from the negligent party. Like other motor vehicle accidents, if you get hurt in an accident that involves negligence by a driver, you may try to seek compensation from the drivers. You might also be able to seek compensation from the company as well, which requires insurance during all rides.

Rideshare drivers must have insurance. Lyft and Uber are required to maintain very specific amounts and types of insurance to cover their drivers, passengers, and others. The specifics of the coverage and when it is applicable, depend on a variety of circumstances, including whether the driver is logged into the app and when the accident takes place. There are many factors that will go into determining who to pursue to collect damages for your injuries after an Uber or Lyft accident.

Understanding these insurance policies, what they cover, and when they apply are issues best left to our knowledgeable accident lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP.

If you were hurt in an accident with one of these services, we can protect your legal rights and pursue available options to collect compensation.

When Negligence Causes Accidents and Injuries, Victims Might Collect Compensation

Negligence or recklessness cause most motor vehicle accidents. Uber drivers and Lyft drivers can be as negligent as ordinary drivers. The drivers may speed, drive under the influence of alcohol, drive while tired, and engage in distracted driving.

Uber and Lyft drivers often look at their navigation systems and their phones while driving to get to their destination and pick up the next ride, as well as talk to others. These can all contribute to negligence leading to an accident.

Uber and Lyft may also be found negligent. The companies are supposed to perform background checks on their drivers to keep passengers and the public safe. The companies and some cities and states set standards by which the drivers must operate. Some examples might include:

  • Frequent inspections of the vehicle
  • Additional license requirements
  • Maximum age of vehicles
  • Minimum age of drivers
  • Safety features

When there is an accident involving a Lyft or Uber, one of the first considerations should be whether the driver did or did not adhere to the standards set by the parent company.

Another consideration will likely be whether the company did an adequate background check on the driver or received complaints about their driving or other problems.

What Should You Do After You Get Injured in an Uber or Lyft Accident in New York?

If you get injured in an accident with a rideshare car such as Uber or Lyft, there are immediate steps you can take to start protecting your legal rights.

  • Get medical attention
  • Report the accident to the police, your insurance company, the rideshare company
  • Get contact information of the driver and witnesses
  • Get copies of official reports
  • Take pictures if possible
  • Gather your information-medical receipts, medical records, insurance documents
  • Refer the insurance company or any other party that contacts you about the accident to your rideshare accident lawyers

Uber, Lyft, and insurance companies what to pay as little as possible to rideshare accident victims. This is one reason you should seek representation from our experienced personal injury lawyers. You don’t want to be pressured into accepting a settlement that does not provide sufficient compensation to cover your injuries.

At Alonso Krangle, LLP, our rideshare accident lawyers can ensure that if you choose to settle your Uber or Lyft claim, you do so for an amount that is fair and fully compensates you for the injuries you have experienced because of negligence.

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.

Dave Krangle Worked Restlessly On This Case Until We Won
I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case….. Mr. David Krangle worked restlessly on this case until we won the case. Since then, if anybody asks for a good attorney I recommend David Krangle with confidence. He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case. He treats his clients as family. Thank you, Mr. Krangle, wishing you a continued success, good health and prosperity.

When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!

You’ll be in good hands!

I was involved in an accident and needed a good Personal Injury Attorney. A friend referred me to David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. After my initial phone conversation with David, I was confident that I found the right Attorney. David was not only extremely thorough, he kept me updated on every stage of my case. Most importantly, he was always available for questions and followed-up promptly. In most cases, the same day. Since there was a 3-hour time zone difference, I was very appreciative from a client stand point.

With his expertise and guidance, I had a successful outcome. I felt very fortunate that David and his wonderful staff represented me.

If you ever find yourself in need of expert legal advice and guidance. I highly recommend you contact David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. You’ll be in good hands!

Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart For All Your Help

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.

The world needs more people like yourself
