Westchester County Rideshare Accident Lawyers
Rideshare services are on the rise. In just a few years, they have gone from being uncommon to becoming an industry standard. Uber and Lyft alone now provide over 60 million rides per month in the United States- that's about one every six seconds! And Google is getting into the game with their Waze Ride service which has been available for several months now.
With so many cars on the road, there were always bound to be some car accidents. Unfortunately, these rideshare apps don't always do their due diligence when onboarding new drivers and vehicles, and accidents are not uncommon.

What is a rideshare accident and what should I do if I am in one?
A rideshare accident is any accident that occurs while you are a passenger in a rideshare vehicle. This could include an Uber, Lyft, or other type of ride-sharing service.
If you are involved in an accident while in a rideshare vehicle, the first thing you should do is check to see if anyone is injured and get them medical attention if they require it. If you are injured, seek medical attention immediately.
If you are healthy and able, you should then call the police, fill out a police report, and collect information from the parties involved in the accident and any witnesses. You should also take some photos on your phone of the accident. At the scene of the accident, don't accept any blame for the accident or engage in arguments about who was to blame.
Finally, call a rideshare accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case. An attorney can help you get starting with the process of collecting fair compensation for any injuries or damages you suffered in the accident.
The legal rights of passengers involved in a rideshare accident
Passengers involved in a rideshare accident have the same legal rights as passengers involved in any other type of car accident. This means that you can seek compensation for any injuries or damages you suffered in the accident.
You can file a personal injury claim against the driver of the rideshare vehicle, the rideshare company, and/or any other party who may be responsible for the accident.
It is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to determine who is at fault and to begin the process of collecting fair compensation.
Rideshare accidents are more common than you think

In 2010, there were 32,885 car accident deaths in the United States. In 2011, the year that rideshare apps started, deaths were up to 37,400.
