Can I Pursue the Rideshare Company for Compensation After an Accident with Injuries in New Jersey?

Our Newark rideshare accident lawyers know that being injured in a crash with an Uber or Lyft driver can be complex because more than one insurance policy may be involved.

Determining liability in an Uber accident with injuries involves evaluating several factors, including the accident’s circumstances, the rideshare driver’s actions, and any other vehicle drivers involved.

The liability may depend on whether the Uber or Lyft driver was actively engaged in a ride at the time of the accident.

Rideshare companies divide the driver’s activities into three main periods:

  • Period 1: The driver is logged into the Uber app but hasn’t accepted a ride request.
  • Period 2: The driver has accepted a ride request and is en route to pick up passengers.
  • Period 3: The driver is transporting passengers.

During Periods 2 and 3, Uber or Lyft’s commercial insurance policy typically covers bodily injury and property damage caused by the driver. However, during Period 1, rideshare insurance coverage may be limited, and the driver’s personal insurance policy may be the primary source of coverage.

All vehicles registered in New Jersey require three types of mandatory insurance:

  • Liability insurance pays others for damages the driver causes if they are responsible for an accident. It does not cover medical expenses.
  • Personal injury protection (PIP) pays medical expenses if the driver or other persons covered under the policy are injured in an automobile accident. Often called No-Fault coverage, it pays their medical expenses if they were or were not at fault.
  • Uninsured motorist coverage protects the driver if they are in an accident with someone who doesn’t have proper insurance coverage.

Whether you must pursue your insurance coverage, the at-fault driver’s coverage, or a rideshare company’s coverage, we can help you understand your legal rights and options to seek the best outcome for your claim.

Omni Injury and Accident Attorneys Handle All Types of New Jersey Rideshare Claims

While Uber and Lyft may be the first companies that come to mind when someone uses the word rideshare, there are other types of companies for hire that transport people throughout New Jersey. And just like Uber or Lyft vehicles, they are just as likely to be involved in crashes when negligence is a factor.

They include:

  • Chartered Buses.
  • Limousines.
  • Private Car Services.
  • Shuttles.
  • Taxis.

Determining liability in transportation-for-hire accidents can be complex, especially when multiple parties are involved. Establishing fault and proving negligence may require a thorough investigation and analysis of the crash’s circumstances.

In addition, these companies often have legal teams and resources dedicated to defending against liability claims to vigorously dispute claims, deny responsibility, or attempt to shift blame onto other parties involved in the accident. Fighting against a well-funded corporate entity can be daunting for individuals seeking compensation for their injuries and damages. We can help.

If you or someone you love has been injured or lost their life in a vehicle driven by a person for hire, we want to hear your story so we can help you pursue the proper insurance coverage for your full financial recovery.

We will handle your case from beginning to end and only recover our legal fees when we produce a positive outcome. All our legal fees are explained upfront and in clear language, so there is no confusion. Once we obtain a fair settlement or jury verdict from the at-fault party’s insurance company, we subtract our fees and provide our clients with a check for the balance. This straightforward approach ensures our clients get what they deserve from their claims, and this is the only way we operate.
