Uber & Lyft Accident Attorney

If you were in a Lyft or Uber accident, you may find it difficult to deal with the company, driver, and insurance.

Greenblatt & Veliev, LLC ​can advocate for you as your Lyft or Uber accident attorney while you focus on recovering from your car accident.

Our Rockville, MD, lawyers get victims of rideshare accidents in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia compensation for a brighter future.

Both Riders and Drivers Can Be Victims of Rideshare Accidents 

In October 2022, two passengers were killed after a tow truck and then a Honda Civic rear-ended a Lexus SUV rideshare. The two victims, each 25 years old, were trapped inside of the rideshare SUV. By the time the police arrived, it was too late. 

In December 2021, a Maryland man died in a car crash while working full-time for Uber. His passengers sustained serious injuries. The other driver, who was traveling on the wrong side of the road, died from his injuries. The family is suing Uber, claiming the rideshare company provided insufficient insurance coverage for the driver's death. 

Our Rockville attorneys can represent drivers and riders who are victims of Uber crashes, Lyft crashes, and any type of rideshare accident. 

Uber and Lyft Add to Traffic Congestion 

Traffic jam

A 2021 study conducted by the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research Technology reports Lyft and Uber drivers increase both the intensity and time of road congestion. They also discovered that since 2016, public transportation ridership fell by 8.9%.

If people continue to choose rideshares over options like buses, the risks of an auto accident involving an Uber driver or someone similar will continue to increase over time. 

Between Dangerous Roadways and Busy Traffic Rideshare Accidents Can Happen to Anyone

After experiencing a disruption in ridership during the pandemic, the Uber app has once again become a popular transportation option for riders everywhere.

Even if you're riding with the safest of Uber drivers, auto accidents can still happen to you through no fault of your own. Or you may be driving your own vehicle and get hit by a negligent rideshare driver. Like any car accident, an Uber accident can cause life-changing personal injuries to anyone involved.

A 5-Star rating goes to Greenblatt & Veliev. I was fortunate to have Mr. Veliev assist me with my car accident. He was there for me every step of the way. He reviewed reams of materials, explaining every detail and settled my case with the insurance companies quickly and efficiently. I cannot say enough about this company.

Insurance Policies for Uber and Lyft 

Both rideshare companies provide insurance for their drivers while they're waiting to receive rides, when they're on the way to pick up passengers, and during trips. Each company's respective insurance policies include:

While waiting for ride requests:

  • $50,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $100,000 in bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 in property damage per accident

While en route for pickup or during rides:

  • $1 million third-party liability 
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorists accident coverage

Traffic Fatalities Are Increasing

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates 42,915 people died in car accidents in 2021. That's a 10.5% increase from the 38,824 fatalities NHTSA estimated for 2020. NHTSA says the 2021 projection is the highest number of fatalities in car accidents since 2005. The agency also says it's the largest annual percentage increase in NHTSA's Fatality Analysis Reporting System's history. 

Despite vehicles being updated with more life-saving features like rear-facing cameras and driver communication assistance technology, the data shows that drivers are still causing devastating accidents.
