Uber and Lyft Accident Attorneys in Providence

Legal Representation for Rideshare Accident Injury Victims

Choosing to utilize a rideshare service is a convenient option for many. If you don’t have a car, you can get a ride without relying on your friends or public transportation. If you do have a car, you can get to your destination without dealing with the stress of traffic and parking yourself. Unfortunately, there is one driving risk that cannot be avoided by choosing Uber or Lyft: Accidents.

Uber and Lyft driver are not professionals, and have just as much of a chance of being involved in an accident as anyone else on the road. For passengers, a rideshare accident can result in severe injury and the confusion of how to recover compensation.

At Karns & Kerrison, our Providence Uber and Lyft accident attorneys represent people who were injured in a collision. We can help you figure out the complex process of filing a claim.

Schedule a free consultation with our lawyers through our contact form or via phone at (888) 281-3100.

Are Uber and Lyft Drivers Insured?

Uber and Lyft each have their own insurance policies that are in place to protect passengers in the event of a collision. Rideshare insurance is available if a passenger’s own policy does not provide coverage for the accident or is not sufficient.

Your Rights Following a Rideshare Accident

Although Uber and Lyft both have insurance coverage for passengers, receiving benefits is not guaranteed. It is possible that their insurance carriers will deny your claim.

Being injured in a rideshare accident can be jarring, but you shouldn’t be overwhelmed by the legal end of it — you are still entitled to the same benefits you can acquire following any collision.
