This article is being written to conclude and recap my series on bringing suit against Uber or Lyft in Peoria, Illinois. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic as the proliferation of ride sharing services has made such accidents too common in our society. Unfortunately, many victims are unsure of their rights after a wreck or other incident has occurred. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help victims to better understand their rights and options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a personal injury attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today and speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have addressed include:
- Whether a passenger can sue Uber after an accident
- Suing Uber or Lyft after their driver hits your car
- Suing Uber and Lyft for assault, or other conduct, by their drivers
- How an attorney can assist with suing a rideshare company
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, many passengers are unsure of who the defendant would be if they are a passenger and the driver causes an accident. The fact of the matter is that one would be able to bring suit against both the driver and the rideshare company. Second, if another car is hit by a rideshare then that driver would also be able to sue both the rideshare driver and the company. Third, and unfortunately, there are instances in which the driver of a rideshare engages in inappropriate behavior, such as assault. In these incidents it may be possible to also sue the company, depending on the circumstances. Finally, it is important to remember that you will be bringing a case against large and publicly traded companies. It is important that you have an attorney who is experienced in handling such matters.
