With Uber and Lyft providing millions of rides every day, injury-causing accidents are inevitable. If you have been hurt in an accident caused by a ride-sharing driver, you have important legal rights.

You should be able to trust that Uber and Lyft drivers will always drive carefully and get their riders to their destinations safely. Of course, this does not always happen, as people are injured in serious ride-sharing accidents every day. Some causes of Uber or Lyft accidents include:
- Fatigued driving
- Impaired driving
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving
- Improper lane changes
- Running red lights
- Failing to properly maintain a vehicle
While Uber and Lyft are supposed to only hire safe and reliable drivers, this does not always happen, and drivers can engage in negligence and misconduct that leads to passenger injuries. When a rideshare driver causes a crash and injuries, injured victims should recover every cent of their accident-related losses.
Getting compensation from Uber or Lyft is no simple task, however. The good news is that with the right car accident attorneys on your side, you can receive the full amount you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

After a crash , you need an Uber and Lyft accident lawyer who knows how to deal with difficult insurance companies to make sure you get the settlement you need to cover all your losses.
