Understanding Your Legal Options and Finding the Right Attorney after a Rideshare Accident in Brooklyn
Ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft have changed the way people travel in Brooklyn. While these services provide a convenient and cost-effective mode of transportation, they have also resulted in an increase in rideshare accidents. If you have been involved in a rideshare accident in Brooklyn or anywhere in New York City, we can help you understand your legal options and find the right attorney to represent you.
Rideshare Accidents in Brooklyn and New York City
Ride-hail accidents in Brooklyn can occur due to various reasons, including driver negligence, reckless driving, distracted driving, and vehicle malfunctions. According to data from the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, in 2019, over 10,000 crashes involving for-hire vehicles were recorded in New York City, with 522 of them causing serious injuries and 10 resulting in fatalities. Rideshare accidents can involve not only the rideshare driver and passenger but also other drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. After a rideshare accident, victims and their families need support to put their lives back together.
Compensation for Rideshare Accidents in Brooklyn
If you have been injured in a rideshare accident in Brooklyn or anywhere in New York City, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, including emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.
