An increasing number of vehicles on the road operate under Uber or Lyft rideshare agreements. While riding in these vehicles is generally safe and statistics show that rideshare vehicles are generally safer than taxis, accidents can and do happen. Negligent drivers and hostile passengers can also increase the chances of a rideshare accident. Even if you are not in the rideshare vehicle itself, you can still be involved in a multi-car crash that includes one.
Like other traffic incidents, rideshare accidents are subject to a determination of which driver or drivers are at fault. When drivers operate their vehicles for Uber or Lyft, these cars are considered commercial vehicles at that time. While some drivers may carry private insurance that covers their actions as a rideshare driver, others do not, which leaves the rideshare companies’ insurance responsible for paying settlements if the driver is at fault.\
Although commercial accidents are easier to prove in court than cases involving solely private vehicles, rideshare companies will often try to do everything in their power to drag out the process and blame other drivers. In the meantime, if you have severe injuries and are unable to work, your quality of life suffers greatly.
Instead of taking out a commercial or structured settlement loan to help you and your family get by, consider pre-settlement funding from our reputable company. Pre-settlement funding is essentially a cash advance against your expected monetary award. There is no risk to you to apply as we only take cases that have a great chance of winning, either in court or through an out-of-court settlement. Use the money for any type of personal needs, whether it involves daily living expenses, mortgage payments, medical bills and therapy and the like.
Injuries That Qualify
Virtually all injuries sustained in a rideshare accident qualify for funding. Some are more serious than others and can involve extensive costs, both monetary and human. Among the injuries that qualify are:
