Lyft and Uber are popular forms of rideshare services in North Carolina. They are certainly more affordable and convenient for millions of people, but accidents do happen with Uber and Lyft, just as they do with any other motor vehicle.
Rideshare accident cases in North Carolina can be more complex than accidents and injuries with private vehicles. Uber and Lyft accidents should be investigated thoroughly and carefully to determine liability of the at-fault parties.
You should speak with a North Carolina rideshare injury attorney if you were injured in a Lyft or Uber accident. These companies have extensive insurance policies in place that cover passengers and drivers. Your attorney can help you with negotiation settlements or take the case to court for securing compensation and justice.
