Ridesharing History

With the launch of the San Francisco based ridesharing company Uber at the end of 2011, it revolutionized transportation options for many people. Its popularity with young people was almost instantaneous and nowadays, has spread to include many different U.S. populations that are now dependent on rideshare services. Uber and Lyft vehicles are seen all over most major U.S. cities and in many world cities.

Ridesharing Problems

These app-based ridesharing services have also started to come under scrutiny for failing to create and regulate safety measures for their passengers. Any new technology or service will likely have their glitches when they are initially made available to the public, and ridesharing companies are not an exception to this.

Individual and class-action lawsuits have forced these companies to become more accountable for the services they offer yet, many people are still injured as a result of a rideshare driver’s negligence, and/or malicious or reckless behavior.

Background Checks Unlike taxi companies, many app-based ridesharing companies use
3rd-party companies to run background checks on their drivers. They do not typically involve law
enforcement or require applicants and new hires to be fingerprinted. Some of these companies
did not even do background checks when they first started and only after lawsuits and public
scrutiny do they now perform them before hiring drivers.

If you think that a rideshare driver’s negligent, malicious, and/or reckless behavior causedyou or someone close to you to be injured or to lose their life, it may be beneficial to talk to a rideshare law firm Washington DC rider share injury victims and their families recommend.

Car Accidents Currently, Uber and Lyft provide a $1,000,000 insurance policy to cover drivers
and passengers involved in accidents. This is to cover medical expenses, injuries and deaths in
the following situations:

  • Rideshare passengers who are injured during a ride
  • Rideshare drivers injured in car accidents that were someone else’s
    fault
  • Motorists, pedestrians and bystanders that are injured in accidents
    caused by a rideshare driver

Rideshare Related Injuries Even though many people are injured because of accidents
involving a rideshare drivers, accidents are not the only causes of injuries. People who are
passengers in rideshare cars, passengers and drivers of other cars, and pedestrians are all prone
to injuries from negligent, malicious and/or reckless rideshare drivers.

Common incidents where innocent people are injured and in some cases die in rideshare related
incidents include but are not limited to:

  • Sexual assaults and rape
  • Physical assaults and battery
  • Kidnappings
  • Robberies

Compensation for Rideshare Related Injuries

When someone is injured in an incident involving a rideshare driver or if someone dies because of this, the victim and/or their family may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. This is typically sought after through a personal injury claim. Many people find it easier and more efficient to do this with the help of a law firm that is experienced in successfully defending the rights of injured people and their families.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
