Were You Injured in an Accident With an Uber or Lyft Driver?
Gone are the days when a goodwilled friend or taxicab was your only options to get to or from the airport. Today, rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are popular in Harrisburg and the surrounding communities with hundreds of ordinary motorists using their private vehicles to provide transportation services on a daily basis.
While the convenience of these app-based rideshare services is appealing to many people, problems arise when rideshare drivers are involved in traffic accidents.
Recovering Compensation After a Rideshare Accident
Drivers who sign up with rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft are not legally classified as employees of these companies, but rather independent contractors. If you are injured in an accident involving a rideshare driver, this distinction can make it extremely challenging to recover compensation.
