Rideshare Auto Accident Lawyers in Denver

We Can Help You Recover the Compensation You Need

Hailing a ride from an app on your phone was once a novelty, but now ridesharing apps like Uber and Lyft are normal parts of everyday life. People rely on these services to safely take them home from a night on the town, get around in an unfamiliar city, or help them get to where they need to go when they don’t have access to their own means of transportation.

At The Orr Law Firm, we know the increased popularity of ridesharing apps has meant an increased risk of becoming involved in an accident with or as one of these drivers. Whether you ride or drive with a ridesharing app, or were hurt by someone who was driving for one of these companies, you need legal representation to help you fight for the financial compensation you deserve.

We at The Orr Law Firm can provide the legal support you need to pursue damages that can help you account for bills related to medical expenses and property damage that you. Get in touch with us today to schedule a consultation to learn more about how we can help.

What Our Attorneys Can Do for You

Like any auto collision, those that involve app-based rideshare drivers can result in severe injuries or even death. If you were hurt or are the loved one of someone who was hurt or killed in such a collision, you need to seek legal representation to get financial compensation to account for what happened.

Reasons for seeking financial compensation can include the following:

  • You have new and overwhelming medical bills you incurred as a result of the accident.
  • You have to afford physical therapy to aid your long-term recovery from the collision.
  • You had to take time off of work for your recovery.
  • You lost your capacity to work or can no longer work as a result of your injuries.
  • You needed to afford a funeral and burial for a loved one killed in a rideshare accident.

Our rideshare auto accident lawyers in Denver at The Orr Law Firm can help you recover damages that include compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and more. Reach out to us today to schedule a consultation to learn more about what we can help you fight for.

How Rideshare Companies Handle Insurance

Rideshare apps such as Uber or Lyft tend to treat insurance similarly. Uber, for example, provides up to $1 million in liability coverage in addition to $1 million in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage when there is a rideshare customer in the vehicle.

A key factor in this, though, is that this kind of coverage from rideshare companies is typically only relevant when the driver is logged into the app when the accident occurs. If an incident happens before or after the driver is officially engaged with the app, then claims may need to be filed with the drivers’ personal auto insurance policy carriers.

The insurance coverage provided by rideshare companies also often only extends to the rideshare vehicle’s customers. If someone is injured as a pedestrian, cyclist, or as a driver or occupant of another vehicle, the rideshare company’s insurance is unlikely to cover their injuries – opening the driver and their personal insurance company up to liability for a personal injury lawsuit.

A possible exception to this is “on-duty” liability coverage, which provides some bodily injury coverage for anyone involved in a rideshare accident when the driver is logged in but has no occupants and has not yet accepted a fare.

Do You Need Legal Assistance?

Fault for a rideshare auto accident is treated similarly to a situation where no rideshare service is involved. One person may bear 100 percent of fault, or parties could share a percentage of fault for the accident. A thorough investigation is often needed to help assess liability for the accident and injuries sustained as a result.

If you were involved in a rideshare collision and need legal assistance, reach out to The Orr Law Firm’s rideshare accident lawyers in Denver for assistance. We can provide the legal representation you need to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and more. We can also help you protect your liability for an accident by building a case that mitigates your responsibility for what occurred.
