Rideshare Accident Attorneys in Wilmington
Call Us After Being in an Uber or Lyft Accident
When you are hurt in a rideshare accident, you could be facing a complicated legal situation from the beginning, even more so than the average auto accident. Liability in a rideshare accident can be convoluted as rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft try to avoid any responsibility for the accident. To get the compensation you deserve for your injuries and other damages, you should be prepared for an uphill legal battle.
According to technologyreview.com, Uber and Lyft accidents play a part in the 2-3% increase in traffic deaths that occur each year. This is information based on a study out of the University of Chicago and Rice University. Although these rideshare companies play a positive role in the economy, there are some negative impacts as well, including the frequency of traffic accidents associated to them.

Are Rideshare Companies Liable?
Perhaps the largest complication in a rideshare accident claim is whether a rideshare company holds some accountability for what happened. For years, Uber has been in the news for legal conflicts with drivers who use its app to earn an income. Uber contests that drivers are not employees but rather independent contractors, which may significantly limit their liability in a rideshare accident.
On the other hand, Uber acknowledges its connection to rideshare accidents by offering insurance policies for some situations. Their advertisement campaigns have boasted that they insure each ride up to $1 million. What is not known is how often this policy coverage is afforded to pay claimants.
If you let our Wilmington rideshare accident lawyers from Bifferato Gentilotti LLC manage your claim, then you do not need to worry about liability complications that could be argued by the rideshare company. We will handle all of the legwork and heavy lifting of your case while you continue to try to rest and recover.
Who Else Could Be Liable for Your Crash?
What other parties might share liability for your rideshare accident?
- Your driver: As a passenger in an Uber, Lyft, or any other type of rideshare vehicle, you are depending on your driver to get you to your destination safely. If they make a mistake while driving that causes an accident, then they could be held liable through their own insurance policy for your damages.
- Another driver: There is also the possibility that the rideshare accident was caused by another driver on the road who hit your rideshare vehicle. When this happens, the other driver could be fully responsible for your damages. Or liability could be split between both drivers if it is argued that your own driver did not do enough to anticipate or avoid the accident.
- Another passenger: There are also complex rideshare accident claims involving accidents caused by another disruptive passenger. If this circumstance applies to your claim, then we highly encourage you to get our attorneys on your side as soon as possible to start working on the liability issues.
