Legal Challenges in an Evolving Industry
Every day, someone in New York City and the greater tri-state area is injured as a result of using ride share services, which include Uber, Lyft, Via, and Juno. When someone is injured, certain questions arise. Who is at fault in an accident? Can ride share companies be sued directly? Is the Uber driver at fault? What if you are the ride share driver operating your own vehicle and are involved in an accident – can you be held liable?
Because ride sharing services are an evolving industry, successfully seeking financial compensation for injuries requires the skill and experience of a qualified attorney. The Ashley Law Firm has helped hundreds of injury victims receive the compensation they deserve – compensation exceeding $40 million in verdicts and settlements. If you have been injured as a result of an Uber accident, you may be entitled to compensation and damages, including:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Expenses related to long-term care and rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
- Vehicle repair/replacement costs
- Disability and disfigurement
- Lost wages and lost earnings
- Loss of quality of life
- Emotional distress
Remember that you may be entitled to damages if you have been injured as a passenger or driver of a ride share vehicle, such as Uber, or if you were in another vehicle and got into an accident with an Uber driver. Pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists injured as a result of an Uber accident may also be entitled to significant financial compensation.
