NYC Lyft accident lawyer Samantha Kucher releases a new article ( that explains how claims work in a Lyft accident. According to the lawyer, ridesharing has made public transportation more accessible for many New Yorkers. Many people no longer have to fight for seats on buses and trains thanks to ridesharing apps.

"Residents of New York City have long been familiar with taking a taxi or subway to get to their destination. But the face of public transportation in New York has changed significantly with the concept of ridesharing," says the NYC Lyft accident lawyer.

The lawyer explains that most people in New York depend on the subway, taxis, and buses. These modes of transport are managed by professionals. These transportation modes are fully insured for both the municipalities and companies that operate them.

Attorney Samantha Kucher says that Uber and Lyft don't really employ trained professionals. Some of their drivers might be inexperienced. Drivers can also be distracted, careless, or impaired at times, which can lead to accidents for passengers.

In the article, the lawyer adds who is responsible for a Lyft/rideshare crash. There are many possible scenarios for these types of accidents. One scenario could be that a passenger was injured, and the driver is responsible. A passenger riding in a Lyft/rideshare car may have been injured in an accident involving a different vehicle. Attorney Kucher states that it is possible to file an injury claim depending on the circumstances.

According to the injury lawyer, "With the convenience of rideshare apps such as Lyft and Uber comes newer kinds of injury claim issues when an accident happens. In New York, while we require rideshare companies to carry insurance policies to cover accident victims in just these cases, what is available to an accident victim can vary depending on the operating status of the driver.”

The lawyer also explains that drivers can be in three different statuses at the time of an incident. These include drivers who are logged out of the app, drivers awaiting requests, and drivers fulfilling requests. If the driver isn't logged in, they will be considered off-duty. Accidents involving passengers that occur while the driver isn't logged in will be treated as any other New York car accident.

Lastly, attorney Kucher emphasizes that it's very important to seek the guidance of an experienced accident lawyer when filing an injury claim. A skilled attorney may be able to help the victim receive the compensation they deserve.
