Protecting Passengers and Drivers with Freeburn Law

Ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft have become a popular way to get around Pennsylvania. While these ride solutions can be a great way of staying safe if you have been drinking or taking medication that makes driving dangerous, there is always a risk when you are in a vehicle. Sometimes, these convenient rides can take a dangerous turn.

If you have been injured in a rideshare accident, Freeburn Law can help, regardless of whether you were a passenger or a rideshare driver. We are here to help you navigate the complex legal landscape and fight for your rights.

Ridesharing Accidents: Understanding the Risks

Driving is dangerous by its very nature, and rideshare rides are no different. Like other types of car accidents, ridesharing accidents can occur due to various factors, including:

  • Driver Negligence: Distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence can all lead to accidents.
  • Vehicle Issues: Poorly maintained rideshare vehicles pose a safety hazard.
  • Road Conditions: Adverse weather or poorly maintained roads can contribute to accidents.
  • Third-Party Drivers: Accidents can also involve other vehicles on the road.

Protecting Passengers After a Rideshare Accident

As a rideshare passenger, you’re typically covered by the rideshare company’s insurance policy. However, navigating insurance claims and obtaining fair compensation can be complex. After all, the company that you are riding with is always going to be looking out for their best interest. Who is looking out for yours?

Freeburn Law can help you with:

  • Understanding Insurance Coverage: We will decipher the complex insurance policies of both the rideshare company and the driver involved in the accident.
  • Maximizing Your Compensation: We will fight to ensure you receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from your injuries.
  • Handling Your Case: We will handle all communication with the rideshare company, insurance companies, and any other parties involved, allowing you to focus on recovery.

Rideshare Driver Injuries: Protecting Your Rights

Rideshare drivers face unique risks.  While rideshare companies may offer some insurance coverage, it may not be enough. Freeburn Law can help rideshare drivers with:

  • Understanding Driver Insurance: We will explain the specific insurance coverage offered by the rideshare company and explore additional insurance options you may have.
  • Filing Claims Against Other Drivers: If the accident was caused by another driver, we can help you file a claim against their insurance company.
  • Workplace Injury Claims: Depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim if your injuries prevent you from driving.
