Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare apps have become increasingly popular. Whether you need a ride to the airport or a ride home after a night out, getting yourself a driver is just a click away.
When you get into a rideshare vehicle, you trust the driver and trust that the rideshare company conducted robust background checks on their drivers. As a customer of rideshare companies, you are entitled to compensation if you are injured due to the negligence or improper conduct of one of their drivers. A good rideshare accident attorney can help you get that compensation.
Employers are liable for their employee’s negligence. Some of the rideshare companies seek to avoid liability by characterizing their drivers as “independent contractors.”
This work relationship between drivers and the rideshare companies may blur the lines of who is responsible and liable if a rideshare accident occurs. The experienced rideshare accident attorneys at Mase Mebane know how to hold the rideshare company liable even if they try to blame their “independent contractor” driver. If you are involved in an accident in a Lyft, Uber, or other rideshare vehicle where a driver is involved, we can help make sure all liable parties are held accountable. Pursuing rideshare accident lawsuits against the correct parties will ensure that you are fully compensated. Call us today for a free case consultation.Back to Motor Vehicle Accidents
