Westchester County Rideshare Accident Attorneys

Lawyers in Fairfield County for Victims of Crashes Involving Uber and Lyft Vehicles

In recent years, few companies have exploded in popularity the way that rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have. Every day, tens of thousands of people rely on such companies to facilitate a ride to or from work, school, or leisure activities. Unfortunately, Uber and Lyft vehicles are involved in accidents from time to time, and when they are, riders and passengers in other cars may be injured.

At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we understand how complex ridesharing accidents can be. While ridesharing through mobile apps might be a relatively new technology, the principles behind recovering compensation for our clients remain the same. For more than 70 years, our attorneys have been helping injured clients throughout the region secure successful verdicts and settlements, and we are ready to put our proven approach to work for you.


Who Is Responsible for My Injuries?

In most states, including Connecticut and New York, rideshare drivers are independent contractors rather than employees of the companies for which they drive. This means that when an accident occurs, the issue of liability is not always clear. By law, Uber and Lyft are required to provide insurance coverage for passengers while they are riding with one of the company's drivers. The driver is also required to have coverage of his or her own. If another motorist causes an accident with an Uber or Lyft car, the other driver's insurance company will almost certainly be involved. The primary responsibility for your injuries will fall on the party who is most at fault for the accident, and a skilled lawyer from Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC will help you determine who that might be.

Types of Injuries

As with any type of traffic accident, a ridesharing accident can cause a wide range of possible injuries. At our firm, we are equipped to help you seek compensation for your medical bills, including physical therapy and rehabilitation. We will also help you recover lost wages due to missed work as the result of your injuries.

Assault and Wrongful Death

Anytime that a person is alone with a stranger, there is a possibility of tragedy. While ridesharing companies perform background checks on prospective drivers, there are many examples of drivers attacking and sexually assaulting riders. At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we can help victims of ridesharing drivers seek full compensation. In cases where the victim was killed, we represent the surviving family in wrongful death actions.

Catastrophic Injuries

Most ridesharing accident injuries eventually heal, and the victim is able to regain a sense of normalcy. Sadly, this is not the case for everyone. Some Uber accidents result in victims suffering extremely serious injuries, the effects of which will last forever. Our lawyers have the experience and resources to help victims of catastrophic injuries such as severed limbs, amputations, paralysis, and severe brain injuries collect full compensation.
