Why You Need to Work with an Uber Accident/Lyft Accident Lawyer
Whether it's commuting to work, school, or while on vacation, people have come to use rideshare apps, such as Uber and Lyft, on a regular basis. During rides, passengers depend on their Uber and Lyft drivers to get them from Point A to Point B safely. However, car accidents happen, and sometimes those accidents have devastating outcomes.
Rideshare accident victims can include passengers in the Uber or Lyft, pedestrians who were struck by the ridesharing vehicle, and any other motorists the Uber or Lyft driver hit. Because so many parties can be involved in these types of accidents, multiple insurance companies will also be involved after the personal injury claim is filed. This complicates matters and how insurance coverage will be utilized.
In addition, a car accident can result in serious injuries that require ongoing medical treatment, leaving victims out of work and having to pay for these costly medical expenses. While out-of-pocket expenses can be reimbursed, without the right legal support from an experienced Uber and Lyft accident attorney, you may be left responsible to cover all of these costs.
Our Las Vegas law firm, Alpha Accident Lawyers, has the knowledge and resources needed to successfully recover the maximum compensation you are rightfully owed. To begin the claims process or simply inquire about your legal options, contact us and schedule a free consultation.

What to Do After a Lyft/Uber Accident
Partnering with Alpha Accident Lawyers means getting support for any rideshare accident case you experience.
Step One: Reach Out to Our Team
The first step to getting started with an Alpha Uber and Lyft accident attorney is to contact our Las Vegas office. For your convenience, we can be reached by phone, email, and contact form ensuring confidentiality and providing you with the assistance you need 24/7.
Step Two: Don't Speak to the Insurance Company
During your free case evaluation, our team will discuss all of the details of the Uber and Lyft accident. Before the consultation, the insurance companies of the Uber or Lyft driver, as well as the ridesharing companies will contact you. Insurance adjusters will not have your best interest and will attempt to get you to settle for a lower than deserved settlement.
Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys will work as your legal advocates and handle communication with any representatives from Uber and Lyft. In addition, we can identify all liable parties, like the Lyft driver/Uber driver or the ridesharing company.
Step Three: Gather Evidence
Next, our Alpha legal team will begin gathering evidence about the Uber and Lyft accident. We will look into the driver history of the Lyft/Uber drivers involved, examine the accident scene, and compile all of your medical records listing your injuries and treatments.
We'll put together a case file that outlines exactly what happened, lists the compensation owed, and why you, the victim, deserve maximum compensation. Filing an insurance claim against the liable party will allow you to qualify for their bodily injury liability coverage.
Step Four: Receive Compensation
Alpha Accident Lawyers will present our findings in a personal injury claim or lawsuit, stating that the rideshare and/or their Lyft/Uber drivers owe you fair compensation. The settlement amount should cover all expenses, such as medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. In addition, other damages, like your physical and mental pain and suffering will also be taken into account for compensation.
Who Is Responsible for Rideshare Accidents?
When it comes to fault and liability coverage, Uber and Lyft accidents are similar to car accidents in that the at-fault party will be liable for damages. However, identifying the liable parties and filing a personal injury claim with multiple insurance policies is what makes the process complicated. Here are some examples of who can be found at fault.
- Scenario 1: Uber and Lyft drivers' personal insurance policy would be applied if the drivers were not logged on to the app when the crash took place.
- Scenario 2: The ridesharing company's insurance would be applied if the Uber or Lyft driver caused an accident while transporting a passenger or was en route to pick up a passenger.
- Scenario 3: Both insurance policies from the Lyft/Uber driver and ridesharing company can be applied if the driver was logged on to the app and was waiting for a ride request when the crash took place.
In Las Vegas, Uber and Lyft drivers are required to possess personal insurance coverage in order to work for the ridesharing companies. Additionally, Uber and Lyft carry $1 million in liability coverage and in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. However, depending on which scenario the Lyft/Uber accidents took place, not all accidents will qualify for this coverage.
Our Uber and Lyft accident law firm clarifies these details and informs clients which party is responsible for damages. To discuss your case for your rideshare accident, schedule a free consultation.
