A Trusted Law Firm For Rideshare Accident Claims
Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have changed the traffic landscape in Atlanta over the past decade. What has not changed is the damaging effects of accidents and the negligence that so often leads to catastrophic and even fatal injuries.
If you have been injured in a rideshare accident in the Atlanta metro area, you face a number of complex legal issues that do not arise in an auto accident involving conventionally insured vehicles. Rest assured, The Law Offices of T. Andrew Miller, LLC, is prepared to handle these issues while helping you pursue full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
Whose Insurance Covers Rideshare Accidents?
If you were injured after summoning a lift on a ride-hailing app, you may be entitled to compensation from:
- The Uber or Lyft driver’s personal insurance policy
- Lyft or Uber’s third-party liability insurance
- The insurance of another at-fault driver who caused the accident
Uber and Lyft do not classify their drivers as employees, but rather as independent contractors. Companies generally bear less responsibility for the actions of independent contractors than they do for employees.
Nonetheless, you may be entitled to compensation from the rideshare company’s insurance, even if they are reluctant to pay. Depending upon the circumstances of the accident, you may be owed compensation from two or more insurance policies. This is why it is so important to have an experienced personal injury attorney protecting your rights.
Attorney T. Andrew Miller will promptly investigate the circumstances of the accident to determine who is at fault and how best to serve your legal and financial needs. Whether you were a passenger, driver or innocent bystander, you have rights and our law firm is prepared to protect them.
