Ridesharing Accident Lawyers in New Jersey

People involved in an accident in New Jersey

There are four different kinds of ride/share accidents:

  • The Uber or Lyft Driver either caused or contributed to the accident
  • Another driver caused an accident while you were in an UBER or LYFT
  • An Uber or Lyft t hits a pedestrian or bike rider
  • You were injured getting into or out of a ride share vehicle

As a passenger in a rideshare vehicle such as UBER or LYFT you are by law a passenger in a “common carrier.” According to New Jersey law, a common carrier owes their passengers the highest duty of care. Passengers in a ride share that was involved in a crash are entitled to 100 percent of their damages because there is no way you could have contributed to the accident that caused your injuries.

And the good news is that the ride share companies such as UBER and LYFT protect you with 1.5 million dollars of insurance coverage, but they will only pay compensation if they are sued by hiring an experienced injury law firm like Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, PC whose team of rideshare lawyers will represent you with a contingency fee arrangement.

That means:

  • You pay no legal fee if the case is lost.
  • You are not asked to pay any money upfront as a retainer
  • You only pay us a percentage if we win you a settlement

If you’re in an accident involving an Uber, Lyft, Yellow Cab or another rideshare service, you came to the right place. We will fight to get you the money you deserve for your pain, suffering and lost income. However, these accidents are often more complicated than they seem, so hiring a lawyer sooner rather than later is in your best interest.

City top view

Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft have become a popular alternative to traditional taxis and public transportation, both in New Jersey and across the United States. However, rideshare drivers can and do make the same errors as any motorist – and more rideshare drivers on the road mean more rideshare accidents.

At Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., we have more than a decade of holding rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft responsible for their acts of negligence that may have caused injuries to their passengers. Almost all these settlements at the request of the rideshare operator are sealed and confidential. As a result, the nature, extent and value of our settlement history suing Uber, Lyft, and Taxi cab operators prohibit use from providing specifics other than to state that we have experience and a track record proving our success suing Uber and Lyft.

In fact, one of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, PC partners, Adam Lederman has lectured several times about winning cases against rideshare companies to New Jersey trial attorney association seminars. Our firm has over 40 years of experience advocating for accident victims throughout New Jersey and New York. Our experienced New Jersey personal injury attorneys are prepared to help you pursue the money you deserve after being injured in a wreck by developing a strategy tailored to win your case. The legal team of experienced trial attorneys at Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, PC only represents individuals, not corporations, and has secured more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
