Can I Sue an Uber Driver for an Injury in NYC?

There is nothing worse than being hurt in an accident, especially if the accident was the fault of another driver, as you now are seriously injured and have to figure out who is going to cover your medical bills and other expenses you’ve incurred as a result of your accident. Unfortunately, auto accidents happen in NYC every day, and as ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft grow in popularity, more and more car accidents involve Uber and Lyft drivers. If you’ve been hurt in an Uber or Lyft accident, we are here to help. Read on and contact our knowledgeable Bronx car accident attorney to learn more about Uber accidents and whether you can sue your Uber driver for your injury.

How do I know if I can sue my Uber driver for an injury in New York City?

The first thing you should understand about these accidents is that where and when you were injured will play a large factor in who will pay you for your injuries. For example, if the Uber driver wasn’t logged into the app at the time of the accident and crashed into your vehicle, you likely will sue the driver’s private insurance company, and not Uber or Lyft (but this isn’t always the case). That said, if the driver was en route to pick someone up and caused an accident or had already picked you up and caused an accident with you in the vehicle, you will likely sue Uber or Lyft for the accident. Because of the complex nature of these cases, it’s always best to have a competent personal injury lawyer in your corner who understands the intricacies associated with these cases.

It’s worth noting that after an accident, you should always do what you can to document exactly how and when it happened. This can include taking pictures or videos of the accident/its aftermath, asking witnesses for their contact information, getting the driver’s insurance information, and, of course, calling the police and seeking medical treatment.
