The popularity of ridesharing has exploded in recent years and offers many environmental, financial and safety benefits, including the ability to help keep intoxicated motorists off the road.
However, an increasing number of injuries continue to be reported as a result of these services, from traffic collisions to physical and sexual assault. Because these services rely on independent contractors operating private vehicles, multiple insurance companies and their defense lawyers are typically involved in damage claims, making early consultation with an experienced Denver personal injury attorney vital when it comes to protecting the rights of victims.
Injury claims against Uber of Lyft are the most common, as they are by far the two most popular ridesharing services in Colorado. However, Turo, the private vehicle rental service, and a number of other services, continue to grow in popularity.
Ken Fiedler Injury Law provides passionate, principled and proven representation to victims and families looking for an experienced personal injury lawyer in Denver or the surrounding areas, including Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Ken Caryl, Columbine, Golden, Lakewood, Broomfield, and Arvada.
Claims against Uber and Lyft have included:
Ridesharing traffic accidents are complex claims involving both a ridesharing driver’s personal auto insurance policy, as well as the corporate liability policy of the ridesharing service. In addition, claims may be made against another at-fault driver’s insurance carrier, and even a victim’s own insurance company under optional uninsured-underinsured motorist coverage.
A number of insurance coverage issues further complicate these claims, as does the presence of corporate insurance adjusters and defense attorneys working to limit liability at each stage of the process. Victims are always best served by early consultation with a ridesharing injury lawyer in Denver. Ken Fiedler Injury Law offers free and confidential consultations to discuss your rights.
