Rideshare Accidents

Fairfax Rideshare Accident Lawyers

Serving Fairfax, Woodbridge & Fairfax & Prince William Counties

In our increasingly connected world, rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have become a staple of modern transportation, offering convenience and efficiency. However, the rise of these services has introduced a new category of vehicular accidents: rideshare accidents. These differ from standard car accidents due to the multifaceted legal relationships between riders, drivers, and ride-sharing companies.

The unique nature of rideshare accidents requires a legal approach that acknowledges and effectively addresses the intricacies of these cases. At Law Office Of Andrew S. Kasmer, we can dissect the layers of responsibility and liability inherent in rideshare scenarios, offering you knowledgeable guidance through this relatively new and complex legal landscape. 

We focus on thorough investigation and leveraging our comprehensive understanding of Virginia's laws to advocate for your rights. With a deep commitment to achieving justice, our team diligently works to help you secure fair compensation for your injuries and losses, considering the particularities of your case and the multiple parties that may be involved.

Understanding Rideshare Accidents in Virginia

Rideshare accidents involve vehicles that are part of a service that provides paid rides from one location to another via an app-based platform. The web of liability and insurance coverage questions makes these cases more complex than standard car accidents. Determining fault and responsibility is complicated by the presence of a rideshare company as an intermediary, which can obscure who is liable for damages resulting from an accident.

Navigating the Legal Maze of Rideshare Accidents

In the event of a rideshare accident, determining the liable party requires understanding the specific circumstances surrounding the accident.

These include investigating the following: 

  • Whether the rideshare app was active at the time of the accident
  • Whether the passenger was being transported
  • What other motor vehicles or parties were involved in the accident
  • The insurance policies of all parties involved

Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources necessary to untangle these complexities. We meticulously investigate each case to ensure that all aspects of the accident are thoroughly examined, from the driver's employment status and insurance coverage to the ride-sharing company's policies and the actions of all parties involved.

Key parties that may be held liable in a rideshare accident can include:

  • The rideshare driver: If the accident was caused by the driver's negligence or traffic law violations, they could be held directly responsible.
  • The rideshare company: Companies like Uber and Lyft may bear liability, especially if the accident can be linked to their policies, such as inadequately screening drivers or failing to provide proper safety training.
  • Third-party drivers: Other drivers involved in the accident may have violated traffic laws or acted negligently.
  • Vehicle manufacturers: If a defect in the vehicle contributed to the accident, the manufacturer could be liable under product liability laws.
  • Government entities: In cases where poorly maintained roads or malfunctioning traffic control devices played a role in the accident, a government entity may be liable.
