While rideshare programs like Uber and Lyft become more popular options of travel, car accidents will likely increase as well.
After a car accident, many may wish to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party to recover damages sustained in that crash.
If you have been hurt or injured in any type of accident including Uber and Lyft, you are entitled to compensation for damages
When a passenger is involved in an accident, they have the right to file a claim against any party that was at fault, even if it is the driver of the vehicle you were in. As a passenger, you do not have to prove liability. This means you do not have to prove that you were not at fault for the accident.
