New York Uber Accident
Were you involved in a collision while you were a passenger in an Uber, Lyft or car for hire vehicle?
Uber, Lyft and ridesharing apps are still relatively new options for residents outside of New York City. While these services offer many, users should be informed and prepared in the unfortunate event that something goes wrong. The ridesharing trend has become more popular in recent years bringing with it new legal complications and questions:
- Who is responsible if a rideshare driver is involved in an accident?
- What are your rights as a passenger?
With a deep understanding of New York State law, and decades of experience representing personal injury victims, Finkelstein & Partners attorneys knew it was vital to ensure the answers to the above questions were clear. That is precisely why Finkelstein and Partners Managing Attorney, Andrew Finkelstein, worked with key members of the NYS legislature to ensure New Yorkers have the greatest protections possible should they be injured in an Uber/Lyft crash. The New York State Trial Lawyers Association selected Mr.Finkelstein to teach lawyers throughout New York State how to effectively represent Uber/Lyft injury victims.
