Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have taken off in New York in recent years. Unfortunately, so has the number of accidents in which Uber and Lyft drivers are involved. When customers of Uber get hurt in a crash, they’re often entitled to damages as the innocent passengers in the car, but getting these damages isn’t always simple.

He understands insurance industry tactics designed to get injured claimants to settle for less than they need and deserve, and he is prepared to fight for these victims until they’re made whole. The laws governing transportation network company (TNC), or rideshare, drivers are constantly evolving as lawmakers figure out the impact that these companies have on public safety. New York City Uber accident victims need attorneys who stay up-to-date on these laws—attorneys like Manhattan Uber crash lawyer Leandros A. Vrionedes.
Driving in New York City is a challenge for any driver. Drivers for Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare apps or TNCs have the added distraction of paying attention to their phone, which provides notice of requested rides from customers as well as navigation, making it even more likely that they would be involved in an accident. New York City Uber drivers are required to carry commercial insurance policy coverage, providing assurance to passengers that they’ll have some recourse in the event of an accident.
In some instances, this insurance policy coverage may not be sufficient to fully compensate the victim or their family after a serious crash. In these cases, victims often need the help of a seasoned New York lawyer who can help victims explore additional sources of compensation for their injuries, such as other drivers involved in the accident or negligent government entities who failed to maintain the roadway in a safe condition. Manhattan injury lawyer Leandros A. Vrionedes has decades of experience pursuing claims on behalf of accident victims and understands where to look for the money that crash victims need. Contact him as soon as possible after you’re hurt in a Lyft or Uber accident.
