Were You Injured In An Uber Car Accident?

Ride-sourcing is a phenomenon just getting underway in the Memphis Metro.

Currently, the area is served by Lyft, Uber, Zipcar and Turo. The drivers for these companies are independent contractors, and the companies take a percentage of each fare. Passengers can use smartphones or networked computers to "hail a ride."

It sounds like fun, until someone is hurt in an accident. Then uncertainty sets in. Who is liable for the cost of injuries or death?

Ride-sourcing companies hide behind their independent contractors, because traditionally businesses are not liable for accidents caused by contractors. And the contractors have their own personal car insurance, but this is often insufficient.

There are real questions about who is on the hook for the harm done to you. Without knowledgeable counsel, it may be you.

The Gold Law Firm is one law firm pioneering solutions in these kinds of claims. We can walk you through the most challenging situations:

  • When you are injured
  • When a bystander is injured
  • When the other driver is uninsured or underinsured
  • When you are attacked or assaulted by the Uber contractor

Because these matters are still being worked out in the courts, ridesourcing is a Wild West area in personal injury law. David Gold knows how to go after and get the largest possible settlements or verdicts in serious cases of personal injury.
