Phoenix Rideshare Injury Lawyers
Phoenix Rideshare Accident Lawyers
Uber and Lyft have constructed the brand new rideshare industry, which has changed how Arizona residents commute in their daily lives. However, Uber and Lyft have notoriously fought hard to avoid taking responsibility for their drivers’ actions.
Every year there are thousands of car accidents in the Phoenix area. As rideshares become more common, they’ll represent a more significant percentage of these accidents. There are two basic types of rideshare accidents. The first is when a rideshare driver hits your vehicle. The second is when you’re a rideshare passenger, and an accident occurs. Either way, we can help.
At 423Hurt, we have expert rideshare accident lawyers that’ll make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Who’s At Fault In A Rideshare Accident?
In an accident that involves an Uber or Lyft driver, the claims process is often convoluted. Uber and Lyft both provide insurance policies (typically with a $1,000,000 value) to protect their operators while actively working. Nevertheless, establishing responsibility can be more complicated than it may seem at first glance.
Here are a few examples of rideshare accident situations and which individual would be deemed at fault:
- If an Uber or Lyft operator causes an accident while transporting a rider or while on the way to pick up a fare, the rideshare company’s insurance should cover damages.
- If an Uber or Lyft operator causes an accident while awaiting a transportation call, the rideshare company’s insurance should cover losses, but the insurance limits are lower. (Also, Uber says this liability coverage is accessible if the driver’s vehicle insurance doesn’t cover the situation.)
- If an Uber or Lyft driver is responsible for a collision while they’re offline or the app is off, the driver’s insurance coverage is responsible.
Retaining a competent Uber or Lyft accident attorney on your claim from the beginning can help guarantee your case is managed accurately and efficiently. Our organization will promptly distinguish who’s accountable for your accident and assemble all the needed evidence to build a solid case for maximum compensation.

Uber And Lyft’s Lax Driver Onboarding Policies Cause More Than Just Traffic Accidents
In addition to car accidents, Uber and Lyft drivers have been responsible for car accidents, robberies, deaths, physical and sexual assaults, kidnappings, and more. Over the years, Uber has quietly settled with multiple women who were raped or assaulted by their drivers.
These settlement agreements have ensured these incidents remain confidential. The victims can’t speak about their experiences without risking Uber suing them. These incidents do occur, and if you’re the victim of a crime while traveling in a rideshare with Uber or Lyft, we can help you.
