Uber / Lyft Accidents
in New York City

Reach Out to a New York City Car Accident Attorney

With the ever-growing popularity of organization such as Uber and Lyft, more and more individuals are relying on other people to drive them where they need to go. These programs are not regulated like other taxi or public transportation companies, though. This can cause some risks, which people need to be aware. For instance, public transportation companies must thoroughly screen their drivers to make sure they are safe. In some cases, Uber and Lyft drivers may not be fully screened. When an accident occurs, it is important to determine who is liable for compensation.

Who Is Liable for Compensation?

It depends on the type of accident, but if the driver is negligent, they can be to blame for the accident. Furthermore, in the case of an unscreened driver, the company employing the driver may be to blame. At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City car accident lawyers are determined to help clients who have been injured in Uber and Lyft accidents.
