Uber And Lyft May Be Convenient, But Accidents Still Happen
For many of us in New York, using an Uber or Lyft has become a convenience we use frequently. Whether it’s catching a ride to a friend’s house or heading to a special event, it is an affordable way to get around. While it is a great alternative to driving yourself, it isn’t always the safest. If you’ve been in an accident while riding in an Uber or a Lyft, Davidoff & Associates can help.
How Does Insurance Work?
Both Uber and Lyft carry third-party liability coverage. They will pay up to $1 million for any property damage or injuries you may suffer. However, it’s important to know that this policy will only kick in after the driver’s own insurance has been exhausted. Both companies require their drivers to have their own insurance. As a passenger, you’re covered under these policies if the driver is at fault.
If you have suffered due to a negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation. This could be for medical expenses, lost wages, and any pain and suffering. These types of cases are becoming more and more common, and you need an attorney who understands how this process works. Uber and Lyft are big corporations, who often look out for themselves. We are here to get you what you deserve.
