Morgan & Morgan

  • What Should I Do After a Rideshare Accident?

    The most important step is to ensure everyone's safety. Check for injuries and call 911 if necessary. Next, document everything: take photos of the accident scene, the vehicles involved, and any visible injuries. Exchange information with the driver and any witnesses, but be cautious about what you say—avoid admitting fault or making statements that could be used against you later. Finally, contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case evaluation, especially if you've suffered injuries.

  • Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents

    Driver distraction tops the list, and it's not just about texting; the rideshare app navigation can divert attention from the road. According to the NHTSA, it takes about three to five seconds of distraction to cause an accident. Fatigue plays a big role, too, considering many rideshare drivers work long hours or even juggle multiple jobs. Speeding and reckless driving, a concern with any vehicle, become more pressing when drivers rush to maximize their earnings. Don't forget about external factors like poor road conditions or adverse weather, which can be especially challenging for drivers unfamiliar with the area. And, of course, there's the issue of mechanical failure caused by defective car parts and a lack of regular vehicle maintenance, among other common reasons.

  • How Liability Is Determined in a Rideshare Accident

    Figuring out who's at fault in a rideshare accident can be a complex puzzle. It's not just about the rideshare driver's actions; you have to consider the other involved parties, too. Was another driver behaving recklessly? Did the rideshare driver follow all traffic laws? The answer lies in understanding negligence.

    Rideshare companies, like Uber and Lyft, often have substantial insurance policies amounting to around $1 million each. But these kick in under specific conditions based on the driver’s status at the time of the accident. For this reason, having your case reviewed by someone familiar with rideshare accident laws and cases is a great step toward determining liability.

  • When Should I Hire a Rideshare Accident Lawyer?

    You should consider hiring a lawyer if you've sustained serious injuries, especially those requiring medical attention. Also, in cases where liability and insurance issues are complex, particularly with multiple parties involved, an attorney's intervention can help protect your rights. The bottom line is that if the situation feels overwhelming or the stakes are high (significant damages or injuries), having a rideshare accident lawyer by your side can make a huge difference.
