Manhattan Lyft Car Accident Lawyer
If you need a lift in New York City, taxi services are no longer the only game in town. There has been an explosion of rideshare services, such as Lyft, which offer rides to passengers based on a smart phone app payment system. Just like in any other situation involving cars and passengers, there is the potential for accident and injury.

Figuring out the next steps after an accident involving a Lyft car can be confusing at first. This is an intentional move on the part of the rideshare service to try to limit their liability in an accident involving a passenger.

Liability in Accidents Involving a Rideshare Service

If you are injured in an auto accident involving a regular taxi service in New York City, there is well-established law that limits the liability of the cab company. For cases involving rideshare companies, such as Lyft, the liability of the company itself is a tricky issue. The law is still in a state of flux in terms of how the company could be on the hook for paying for your damages.

One of the ways that companies like Lyft have tried to avoid any liability for car accidents is to classify their drivers as independent contractors, which means they are not treated as actual employees of the company. This makes recovering against the company itself much more difficult in a car accident case. Often times, the actual driver at fault for the accident will not have sufficient assets to be able to pay for your damages. This is why having a targeted strategy for how you will actually recover what you are entitled to is so important from the outset. You want to make sure that you are pursuing recovery against all responsible parties that will end up being responsible for paying the damages that you are owed.

The uncertain state of the law on this issue means that it is even more important that you speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in a car accident in Manhattan involving a Lyft car service.

Recovering for Your Injuries from an Accident Involving a Rideshare Service

If you have been injured in a car accident in Manhattan involving a Lyft car service, then you will be able to recover for certain damages that you may have suffered. The amount of your recovery will depend on the specific circumstances of your situation and the extent of the injuries that you have experienced. As a passenger in the car, you may seek to recover against the driver as well as the other car involved depending on which driver was at fault for the accident.

Some of the damages that you may be able to recover after being injured in an auto accident include your medical bills, loss of wages, financial losses as a result of the accident, your pain and suffering and any other specific damage that you suffered as a result of the car accident. You will need to keep good records of all of your expenses following the accident so you can prove how much you are entitled to recover.

Speaking With a Personal Injury Attorney

It is important not to wait too long to bring any claim for your injuries in a car accident. There are certain statutes of limitation that may apply to your car. If you miss the deadline to file a claim, then you could be prevented from recovering anything for your injuries. The sooner you speak to an experienced personal injury attorney, the easier it is to make sure that you do not miss any deadlines and protect your right to recover for your damages from the car accident.

One of the benefits of speaking with an experienced attorney is that the initial consultation is free. This will give you an idea of the potential for your claim and how you would go about recovering for your damages from the auto accident. You will not have to pay for the assistance of an attorney in fighting for your recovery until you actually recover money for your claim.
