Uber and Lyft have become popular modes of transportation for many people across the world. People often choose to take Uber or Lyft rides when their car is in the repair shop or because it may be generally more convenient. Lyft and Uber rides are generally less expensive than traditional taxis which makes it even more appealing to many riders. With this huge increase in ride-sharing, accidents are bound to happen.
If you were injured as a passenger, or were hit by a Lyft or Uber driver, or were driving for Lyft or Uber at the time of the accident, the experienced Uber accident lawyers at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP NY can help you receive justice and recover compensation for your injuries.

- You were injured as a driver for Uber or Lyft: If you were injured while driving for Lyft or Uber, your insurance coverage will largely depend on whether you were on the way to pick up a passenger, waiting for a new ride or had the app turned off when the accident occurred.
