Uber/ Lyft Accident Lawyers in Philadelphia
Holding Rideshare Companies & Drivers Accountable
If you have been injured in a ridesharing service such as Uber or Lyft, you are not alone! As these ridesharing services become more common, accidents involving them increase as well. A major reason why Uber and Lyft vehicles are especially prone to accidents is their frequent reliance on phone apps and GPS. When drivers are busy staring at a screen, they become distracted and may have less reaction time to a sudden stop, pedestrian crossing, or motorcycle in their blind spot. Additionally, ridesharing vehicles frequently stop at odd places in the road to pick up or drop off clients, making them more susceptible to rear-end accidents.

Battling Insurance Companies
Uber and Lyft have their own insurance companies to protect them. Usually, the insurance company will try to contact you and offer a settlement because they do not want to go to court. They know if they have to face us, we will most likely recover more money for you than if you simply accept their initial settlement.
