The explosion in popularity of rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have raised significant questions about customer safety. Serious injury accidents, assaults, and even abductions and murders have caused many to be concerned about these companies’ commitment to the consumer safety.
The rideshare injury attorneys at Jebaily Law Firm want you to get to your destination safely every time you accept an Uber or Lyft ride. We fight to protect those in our community who have been hurt in an accident or by someone’s reckless actions. We’ve provided the following rideshare safety tips to help keep you and your loved ones safe.
It’s wise to remain alert when hailing a rideshare vehicle. Remember that you are accepting a ride from someone you don’t know, so keep these important safety tips in mind:
If you are a passenger in a rideshare vehicle, you can give feedback or make complaints about your driver through the company’s website or app. If you are a bystander, call the company’s customer support center to make a report. Make sure to enter as much information as possible, such as the license plate number and the make, model, and color of the vehicle.
Passengers who use ridesharing companies have every right to reach their destinations without incident. If an accident occurs in a rideshare vehicle, passengers can and should exercise their rights to seek damages from the at-fault party(s).
An experienced lawyer can help determine your eligibility for compensation. As rideshare services expand, it’s reasonable to expect changes in the laws governing them as well. A knowledgeable attorney will be familiar with every statute that applies in your case.
If you have suffered injuries in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle, Jebaily Law Firm will demand maximum compensation for your losses.
