Who Can File an Uber & Lyft Accident Lawsuit?

Pennsylvania law grants anyone injured in an accident — including Uber and Lyft accidents — the right to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. In order to win the lawsuit, however, the accident victim (or plaintiff) will be required to establish that the at-fault driver was negligent in some capacity.

Several examples of negligence for which a driver could be held liable include but are not limited to:

Therefore, the Uber/Lyft driver is not always the one at fault for an accident; sometimes, the Uber/Lyft driver is the victim of negligence and may qualify to file suit. Other potential plaintiffs include injured Uber and Lyft passengers, passenger car drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and more.

Legal Deadlines for Uber & Lyft Accident Lawsuits

For Uber and Lyft accident lawsuits, injured individuals must report the accident to the appropriate rideshare company. Neither of these apps provide a firm deadline by which you must report an accident, but it is best that you do so as soon as possible to (a) create an electronic paper trail of the accident and (b) avoid missing legal deadlines.

From here, accident victims usually reach out to their insurance companies. If you have suffered severe injuries in the accident, it would be wise to consult an attorney before you move forward with insurance. Often, insurance agents will add deductions on to your insurance claim and try to shortchange you. A seasoned lawyer, however, will be able to provide you with a valuation of your case and inform you of all your legal options.

Typically, severe injuries warrant a lawsuit because of the significant impact that such injuries have on the victim’s day-to-day life. If you and your lawyer determine that a lawsuit is your best bet for recovering your maximum compensation, you must file suit before the two-year statute of limitations runs out. Per 42 Pa. Con. Stat. Ann. § 5524, the clock starts running on the date of the accident.

Why Hire an Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyer?

Plaintiffs have the option to represent themselves in court, but when you are pursuing compensation for catastrophic injuries, the defense likely comprises highly skilled attorneys who will explore every avenue possible to avoid accountability. Having a highly skilled attorney of your own is the best way to give yourself a real chance of winning.
