Rideshare Accidents In New York: What To Know
A crash involving a driver for Uber, Lyft or other rideshare companies can have numerous causes. Some of the most common include:
- Looking at a navigation device
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Talking to the passengers
- Reckless driving
- Failure to yield
- Driving under the influence of a controlled substance
In New York State, you have up to three years from the date of your crash to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you fail to do so, you forfeit the right to seek compensation.
Who Is At Fault For A Rideshare Accident?
In most instances, the individual driver is liable for your damages. It is rare for the rideshare company to be at fault, but it can happen. If the company failed to provide adequate training or screening for its drivers, it may have full or partial liability. To determine liability, you need to work with us. We have identified the source of hundreds of other traffic accidents. Our car accident lawyers know which evidence to look for, how to preserve the crash scene and how to compile your case.
