New York Rideshare Accident Attorneys

New York City is known for its yellow taxis. You can hail a cab just about anywhere in town with one whistle or a raise of a hand. Now, New Yorkers and tourists can use their phones as an alternative to call an Uber or Lyft.

Unlike commercially owned and operated taxicabs, rideshare vehicles are privately owned and maintained by their drivers. Although these rides offer a unique experience at a discounted rate, there is concern of what happens if you’re injured in an accident during the ride.

If you or a loved one was involved in an accident in a rideshare vehicle, it is important to hire an experienced New York rideshare accident attorney to protect your rights. The legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. represents victims who were injured in accidents involving Uber, Lyft and other rideshare vehicles. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to help you obtain the full compensation that you deserve.

Rideshare AttorneyWhat Is Rideshare Program?

Rideshare programs, such as Uber and Lyft, are commonly referred to as transportation network companies. Rideshare vehicles provide the platform for drivers and passengers to connect. Riders do not hail cars on the streets.

Instead, users download the company’s app, which allows them to request a ride from drivers using their own personal, non-commercial vehicle. All payments for the ride are taken care of through the app. Riders never use cash or credit cards inside the vehicle for their rides.

Who Is Responsible for New York Rideshare Accidents

Just about anyone who has a driver’s license, car insurance and a car can potentially become an Uber or Lyft driver. Unfortunately, many of these rideshare drivers do not have the necessary experience to transport clients.

Accidents involving rideshare vehicles are different compared to normal car accident claims. One main reason is the fact that rideshare drivers are independent contractors as opposed to employees for the companies they drive for. They have the option of creating their own schedules. This gives the rideshare companies an excuse to deny injury claims, especially if the driver’s app is “off.” However, when the app is “on” and the driver is available, the company’s contingent liability coverage and the driver’s own insurance can be accessed.

Rideshare accident victims often do not get the full compensation they deserve. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our experienced NYC rideshare accident attorneys routinely handle personal injury claims against these companies, especially Uber and Lyft.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
