Uber & Lyft Accident Attorneys: Rollover Accidents
Lyft & Uber Accident Lawyers in Palm Beach Counties Helping Accident Victims Recover Compensation
Ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft help millions of people get from one place to another every day and have become an extremely popular alternative to traditional taxi and livery services in the South Florida area. Unfortunately, Uber and Lyft drivers get into accidents just like anyone else, and the negligence of other motorists is a constant threat regardless of the type of vehicle you are in. When these accidents involve or more cars or trucks rolling over, victims can sustain extremely severe, life-changing injuries.
When people are injured in rollover accidents involving ridesharing vehicles, they can often recover compensation from the person or party responsible for their crash. To find out whether you can file a claim, call the lawyers at Demand the Limits to schedule a free case evaluation,
What Causes Rollover Accidents?
Rollover accidents are exactly what they sound like, accidents in which vehicles roll over onto their side or their roof. They can occur for several reasons, including the following:
- Taking turns too fast
- The force of an impact
- Road defects
- Improper cargo loading
- Tire blowouts
Importantly, a driver can cause another vehicle to roll over without colliding with that vehicle. If, for example, a driver suddenly switched lanes and cut another vehicle off, causing the second vehicle to take evasive action to avoid a collision, that second vehicle could potentially roll over as a result of the evasive action. In a case such as this, the driver of the vehicle that suddenly switched lanes could potentially be held liable for any injuries that occurred in the accident even though there was no actual collision.
Protecting Your Rights after a Rollover Accident Involving an Uber or Lyft
If you have been injured in a rollover accident involving a Uber or Lyft, there are certain steps that you should take to make sure you can recover the compensation to which you are entitled. The most important of these include the following:
- If you are able to remain at the scene, get information from all of the drivers involved and make sure that you make note of the ridesharing company from whom the rideshare driver works.
- Undergo a thorough medical evaluation as soon as you can. It’s important to develop documentation of your injuries to establish your damages when it comes time to make a claim.
- Contact an attorney as soon as you can. Accidents involving ridesharing vehicles can be extremely complicated, so it’s highly advisable to retain a lawyer as soon as you can after a crash.
