A question we get a lot... “What happens if I’m in an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver?” In Chicago, there was recently an Uber driver accident where the drunk driver, Rami Matariyeh, killed 23-year old Uber passenger, Jamie Poulos, and seriously injured two other passengers and then fled the scene of the crime. As a result, Palermo Law Group has been fielding many questions regarding the safety and liability of rideshare services. These accidents happen more often than you’d think, so here is what you need to know if you’re ever a victim in an accident.
If you are involved in a car crash with an Uber or Lyft driver – and the ridesharing service driver is responsible for the accident– you are entitled to recover full and fair compensation for the physical, emotional and financial harm (ie. medical bills) that you have suffered. Who will pay for those damages? Would it be the rideshare driver, the rideshare service or maybe even both? That answer depends on several different factors.
