Rideshare Accidents In Columbia, South Carolina

The convenience of rideshare services like Uber and Lyft has revolutionized transportation. However, the increasing popularity of the services present the unfortunate reality of rideshare accidents. If you find yourself in such a situation, it is crucial to understand your rights and legal options with the help of a personal injury lawyer.

Since 1991, Koon Cook & Walters, LLC, has offered personalized legal representation and support in Columbia, Winnsboro, Irmo, Blythewood and West Columbia. With our skill in personal injury law and a deep understanding of the complexities of rideshare accidents, we are committed to advocating for your rights and securing the compensation you deserve.

Who Can Be Held Liable In A Rideshare Accident?

Determining liability in a rideshare accident can be complex. Uber and Lyft provide additional coverage for their drivers and the driver’s liability insurance. Depending on the accident’s circumstances, liability may fall on the rideshare company, the driver or an involved third party.

Our attorneys can investigate the accident, gather evidence and identify all potentially liable parties. We work tirelessly to hold those responsible accountable for their actions and ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Unique Elements Of Rideshare Accident Cases

Unlike typical motor vehicle accidents, rideshare accidents face unique challenges. These may include:

  • Navigating multiple insurance policies and complicated claims
  • Determining the driver’s status at the time of the accident (whether they were on duty or off duty)
  • Addressing issues of vicarious liability with companies like Uber and Lyft

Our legal team is well-versed in handling these subtleties and can confidently guide you through the legal process. From assessing damages to negotiating with insurance companies and representing you in court (if necessary), we provide comprehensive legal representation every step of the way.
