Pursue Compensation with Our Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers
In the last decade, the transportation industry has been completely revolutionized by on-demand ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft. By downloading a ridesharing company’s mobile app, residents and tourists throughout Georgia can request a convenient ride at any hour of the day. However, profit and popular demand is encouraging these companies to cut corners just to meet the growing needs of this consumer base. Because these companies are expanding their territories and hiring a legion of inexperienced drivers, the number of annual ridesharing accidents continues to increase each year.
Every day, reckless and negligent rideshare drivers are responsible for devastating motor vehicle collisions. These incidents frequently lead to catastrophic physical and cognitive injuries that necessitate expensive medical procedures and rehabilitative services. If you’re a passenger or driver injured by the actions of a rideshare driver, contact the Atlanta personal injury attorneys at Ross & Pines. Pursuing compensation after a rideshare accident can be difficult, but our legal team has the skills and resources to help you recover damages that facilitate your physical recovery and protect your standard of living.

Understanding Your Rights
When a car collision occurs, injured survivors can usually collect compensation from the at-fault drivers and their insurance companies. This process becomes a little more complicated when rideshare drivers are involved, however, because different parties can be held liable for your injuries.
If you’re injured in an accident involving a rideshare driver, you may be able to collect damages from the following parties:
- The rideshare driver
- The ridesharing company
- The third-party driver (if applicable)
While companies like Uber and Lyft provide $1 million liability policies, most injured parties choose to take legal action against the negligent driver. This is because ridesharing companies hire their drivers as “independent contractors,” not employees. This legal loophole allows their insurance providers more flexibility in denying liability claims. Even so, pursuing compensation against a ridesharing company isn’t impossible, just difficult. In fact, you may even be able to recover damages through a company’s uninsured/underinsured insurance coverage if the at-fault driver’s insurance policy doesn’t provide the compensation your injuries warrant.
