Larimer County Rideshare Accident Lawyers

Larimer County Rideshare Accident Lawyers

Attorneys in Ft. Collins for Accidents Involving Uber and Lyft

Ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft offer a convenient, affordable alternative to taxis in a growing number of communities throughout the country, including in Northern Colorado. Also known as “ride-hailing” apps, these services are usually more accessible, quicker, and cheaper than your typical cab ride.

At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., we understand that when you use Uber or Lyft to get a ride, you expect to reach your destination without incident, but unfortunately accidents are all too common. If you have been injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle, our experienced attorneys can help you make sense of the complex network of insurance coverages involved with rideshare companies. Our primary goal is to get you the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Serving Injured Passengers in Northern Colorado

Ridesharing companies rely on approved drivers who “share” their vehicles with their customers. While Uber and Lyft drivers are not professionals, they must still undergo a series of background checks and vehicle screenings to ensure the safety of riders and others on the road. When you get into an Uber or Lyft car, the rideshare company’s insurance policy automatically covers you in the event of an accident. If you are injured before reaching your destination, the policy should provide compensation for your injuries.

Under Colorado law, rideshare companies—also known as transportation network companies—are required to provide primary insurance coverage whenever the driver has the Uber or Lyft app turned on. This means that if an accident occurs while the driver is transporting a passenger or looking for the next rider, the company’s insurance policy is responsible for covering any injuries that result.

Unfortunately, collecting compensation is not always so easy. The insurance company may try to avoid paying your claim by blaming the driver or the owner of the vehicle or by disputing the extent of your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, you may need to file multiple claims, including a claim against the at-fault driver’s personal insurance policy, in order to recover the damages you deserve. The skilled attorneys at Hoggatt Law Office, P.C. will work with you in determining which company or companies should be liable and in building a case designed to maximize your compensation.

When an Uber or Lyft Driver Causes a Crash

Our knowledgeable team can also help you when your vehicle is involved in an accident with an Uber or Lyft car. When an Uber or Lyft driver causes an accident in which you are injured, you may have a number of options for seeking compensation depending on the circumstances. For example, if the driver had the Uber or Lyft app turned on, the company’s insurance coverage should be responsible for covering your losses. If, however, the driver was driving a vehicle with an Uber or Lyft decal but not with the app turned on, the driver’s personal policy may take precedence. Sometimes these situations become complicated, and an experienced attorney knows how to cut through to the bottom line.
