Uber/Lyft Accident Types
Every accident is unique, and our ride-sharing accident attorney team has worked with lots of them. While your case will come with its complexities, accidents typically fall into one of the following categories.
We think it’s essential that you know about the types of Uber/Lyft accidents, so let’s look at some of the most common kinds of incidents we deal with and what they involve.
- T-Bone Accidents
T-Bone accidents, or side-impact collisions, occur when Lyft and Uber drivers make illegal u-turns to reach a passenger more quickly. You will have a claim if a driver makes this illegal maneuver while you’re in the car or if your vehicle is impacted by a collision caused by their unexpected and unlawful turn.
- Rear-End Collisions
Rear-end collisions aren’t necessarily the fault of the driver at the rear. If a driver stops illegally or unexpectedly, then the driver behind the vehicle cannot be held responsible if they didn’t have enough time to break.
We find that Uber and Lyft drivers are more likely to brake unexpectedly when trying to find passengers in unfamiliar locations.
- Sideswipe Collisions
Sideswipe collisions are also prevalent with ride-share drivers. In our experience, drivers may easily be distracted by their cell phone, which is used to accept and find new drivers. And when you’re not focused on the ride, sideswipe collisions can occur very quickly.
Don’t think your accident fits neatly into one of these categories? Don’t fret. We’ve got an Uber accident attorney perfect for you, and we’re always happy to discuss your case in an initial consultation.
Common Uber/Lyft Injuries
You may incur an Uber or Lyft injury if you’re in the vehicle driven by a ride-share driver or in a vehicle hit by a ride-share driver during an accident. We know that every accident is different, but the most common kinds of Uber/Lyft injuries we deal with include:
A concussion can occur whether you’re in the ride-share car or the vehicle hit in a collision. If you hit your head while in your car and suffer a concussion, we can seek compensation.
Whiplash is most common in people over the age of 40 and requires urgent medical attention when it occurs. It involves a ringing in the ear, neck and shoulder pain, and general dizziness.
- Brain Injuries
Sadly, brain injuries are fairly common in vehicle crashes. Such injuries can cause life-long and permanent damage, and compensation greatly helps family members take care of impacted loved ones.
- Lower Back Injuries
Lower-back injuries can be long-lasting and permanent. If a lower-back injury has impacted you, we’ll seek compensation to cover the treatment, pain, inconvenience, and loss of work.
- Herniated Disks
A herniated disk is a rupture in the central part of the discs in your spine. These are the cushions between the bones in your spine, and when damage is done, it causes extreme pain that requires medical attention, drugs, and care.
- Loss of Limb
Losing a limb is traumatic and life-changing, and compensation will be sought to pay for the trauma and experience as well as the long-term costs of living with such an injury.
If a loved one dies due to a ride-share accident that wasn’t their fault, then compensation can be sought for the family of the victim. While justice is never done in tragedies like this, we’ll seek damages that come as close as possible.
Paralysis can be permanent or temporary, but even temporary paralysis is surprisingly common in ride-share accidents and deserves serious compensation.
- Broken Bones
Broken bones might heal, but they cause significant disruption to your life and can even lead to permanent injury and problems. We’ll seek damages based on any loss of work, inconvenience, pain, and long-term suffering.
How Our Skilled Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help with Uber/Lyft Accident in Indiana
Uber and Lyft both ensure their drivers are covered by at least $1 million in liability insurance, meaning that a compensation claim, if successful, will result in a payout that helps you cover medical costs and more.
If you or a loved one have experienced an accident as a passenger in a ride-sharing vehicle, as a pedestrian hit by a ride-share vehicle, or as a driver in another vehicle damaged because of a ride-share driver, we can help you. Make us your first port in the storm. Call us immediately, and we’ll walk you through the process of making a claim, determine the grounds of that claim, and then we’ll figure out just how much you’re entitled to.
We pursue compensation for all kinds of injuries and accidents. If you’re in pain and it’s not your fault, Stracci Law Group is here to fight for you.
