Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing apps and services are the newest wave of public transportation, gaining popularity throughout the country. While these services claim to be as heavily regulated as taxis, drivers are often far less experienced in transporting passengers. This can lead to serious accidents and injuries for those using the service.
Damages and Compensation Following Uber and Lyft Accidents

If you or a loved one has been injured in an Uber, Lyft or other ride-sharing accident, please contact our Stamford law offices for a free initial consultation.
The more rides an Uber or Lyft driver can complete in a night, the more money the driver makes. This tempts many drivers to drive recklessly or speed in order to quickly drop passengers off and pick up a new rider. In many cases, drivers do not have the same experience or training in driving as a taxi driver or other public transportation operator.
Impatience and greed can lead to unsafe driving practices which can lead to serious car accidents and resulting injuries. This could include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neck or spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
Our lawyers will carefully examine how the accident occurred and determine who is responsible for the injuries and damages.
We will work with your medical professionals toe determine the nature and extent of your injuries in order to pursue appropriate compensation for all your damages including but not limited to medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, physical pain, mental suffering, permanent injury, loss of activities and/or lifestyle.
