Passengers trust that their Uber or Lyft driver will take them to their destination safely and securely. Unfortunately, these drivers are still involved in car accidents in Alpharetta.

If you were injured because of an Uber or Lyft driver’s negligence, you may recover compensation for injuries related to an accident. Both Uber and Lyft carry liability insurance in Georgia that covers damages caused by their negligent drivers. Furthermore, our Alpharetta car accident lawyers can help determine if you have grounds to sue a rideshare company.

Uber and Lyft Liability Insurance Coverage in Alpharetta, GA

Uber and Lyft both carry liability insurance to cover damages caused by their negligent drivers. You may recover damages from the rideshare company’s insurance policy if your Uber or Lyft driver was at fault for an accident. If an accident was caused by a third-party driver, then damages can also be paid by Uber or Lyft’s policy. In such cases, further damages may be pursued against the other, at-fault driver’s insurance company if necessary.

Uber and Lyft’s liability coverage will not pay for damages caused by their drivers when they are off the clock. Furthermore, these companies may dispute whether their driver was at fault for an accident. Our Alpharetta car accident lawyers can help gather evidence to prove negligence on behalf of an Uber or Lyft driver. Relevant evidence may include medical records, accident reports, witness statements, and surveillance footage.

Do I Have Grounds to Sue Uber or Lyft After an Accident in Alpharetta, GA?

In most cases, you cannot sue Uber or Lyft for a car accident. There are instances where damages caused by an accident may exceed the amount of coverage provided by Uber or Lyft’s liability insurance policy. In such cases, it can be nearly impossible to sue the rideshare company for additional damages because they are independent contractors. In other words, Uber and Lyft can avoid liability for damages caused by their negligent drivers because the drivers are technically not employees.

Any circumstances where you can sue Uber or Lyft are exceedingly rare. For instance, a rideshare company can be held liable for injuries caused by their poor hiring practices. If Uber or Lyft hired a driver with a dangerous driving record and that driver caused your accident, you may be able to sue the rideshare company. Our Alpharetta car accident lawyers can help assess all of the legal remedies available to you after suffering a car accident because of an Uber or Lyft driver.

Common Injuries Caused by Uber and Lyft Accidents in Alpharetta, GA

There are a wide range of injuries caused by Uber and Lyft accidents. Severe injuries can occur in accidents involving both cars and pedestrians. Although, some injuries occur more frequently than others. The following are examples of injuries suffered by victims to Uber and Lyft accidents:

Whiplash

Whiplash is an injury caused by forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain and stiffness, loss of motion, numbness, blurred vision, among others. Whiplash is frequently suffered by Uber and Lyft accident victims when their vehicle is struck from behind. However, whiplash may result from any type of impact.

Back Injuries

Back injuries are another common result of Uber and Lyft accidents. In many cases, victims will suffer soft tissue injuries such as strains and sprains in their back because of an accident. In more serious cases, victims can suffer damage to their spine. Spinal cord damage can result in severe pain and even paralysis. Serious spinal cord injuries often occur in pedestrian accidents. Our Alpharetta car accident lawyers can help recover compensation if you suffered a back injury because of a negligent Uber or Lyft driver.

Internal Injuries

Some injuries caused by Uber and Lyft accidents occur internally and may not be immediately apparent. However, such accidents can cause serious harm to internal organs. It is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible if you are experiencing pain caused by an Uber or Lyft accident. Our Alpharetta car accident lawyers can help refer proper treatment.

Burns

In some cases, Uber and Lyft accident victims may suffer burn injuries because of contact with fire, hot surfaces, steam, or chemicals. For especially severe burns, surgery and skin grafting may be necessary. Accordingly, you may also recover monetary damages for the treatment of burn injuries caused by Uber and Lyft accidents.

Broken Bones

In many cases, broken bones or fractures are caused by Uber and Lift accidents. Broken bones are particularly common in accidents that occur at high speed and accidents that involve pedestrians. Pedestrians often suffer multiple broken bones if they are struck by a negligent Uber or Lyft driver because they are not afforded the protection of a vehicles frame.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Uber and Lyft accident victims may also suffer traumatic brain injuries. The symptoms of traumatic brain injuries may involve intense physical and psychological pain. The effects of such injuries can be life-altering. Our Alpharetta car accident lawyers can help victims recover the full extent of damages incurred because of a traumatic brain injury.

Facial Injuries and Scars

Lastly, Uber and Lyft accident victims may also suffer facial injuries and scars. These injuries are typically caused by an impact with a vehicle’s steering wheel, dashboard, or windshield during a crash. Victims who suffer facial injuries and scars may be compensated for the cost of surgical correction.

“This business helped me so much when I had my accident.”

This business helped me so much when I had my accident. I really did not know how to handle what I needed to do to take care of myself. When I contacted this law firm, they gave me a case manager. Her name was Sheila Hess. Sheila was amazing!! She handled all of my needs with the utmost of care and privacy. Sheila was always very professional and kind. I would totally recommend this business to my friends and hope that they would be lucky enough to get to work with Sheila.

“They made sure that we received all of the medical care...”

Our case took a while and was a very long process, but this law firm took very good care of us. They made sure that we received all of the medical care that we needed and guided us every step of the way. This was especially true when the unexpected pandemic started and challenged all of us with the many adjustments we had to make.
