Brooklyn Uber Accident Lawyer

Ride-sharing services like Uber, Lyft, Juno, and Via have come to dominate the urban landscape of the greater New York City metro area. Thousands of rides are conducted each day in New York, and the chances of being involved in a motor vehicle collision as a ride-share driver or passenger have skyrocketed. If you have been involved in a collision with a ride-share vehicle, you may be entitled to financial compensation for injuries you received, lost wages, and pain and suffering you experienced as a result of the incident. The law offices of Nicholas E. Tzaneteas can help. As New York’s leading Uber accident and personal injury attorney, we have helped countless accident victims receive the compensation they deserve.


Ride-Sharing Services: Who is at Fault?

Established in 2009 and experiencing quick growth, Uber is the leading ride-share service in the United States. Other services like Lyft and Juno soon followed. In the New York City area alone, these ride-sharing services account for millions of trips and miles traveled on our city streets each year. It should come as no surprise, then, that vehicles operated in ride-sharing services are involved in motor vehicle crashes in greater numbers each year.

Unlike taxi and professional transportation/car services, ride-share drivers are typically self-employed. They do not have the background screening, licensing, professional training, and liability insurance required of taxi services. Ride-sharing companies typically hold some type of commercial liability insurance, but these policies often have significant exclusions in coverage. Because of these factors, when a ride-share vehicle is involved in a collision, legal challenges centered on who is at fault arise. Determining who is at fault can include questions like:

  • What happens if you are injured as a driver or passenger of a ride-share vehicle?
  • Are you able to sue Juno, Uber, or Lyft directly if you are injured?
  • Is the ride-share driver, the ride-share service, or the owner of the vehicle at fault in a collision?
  • What if you are the driver and owner of a ride-share vehicle, and you become injured in a collision?

Ride-sharing services are relatively new, and the legal field has scrambled to find answers to many questions surrounding them. If you have been injured as a driver or passenger of an Uber, Lyft, Via, or Juno driver, or if you have been involved in a crash with a ride-share vehicle as a fellow motorist, pedestrian, or cyclist, it is clear that you need an attorney with the experience and understanding to help you pursue legal claims.
