Reno Rideshare Accident Lawyer

Reno Rideshare Accident Attorney

Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are very popular in tourist destinations like Reno, and thousands of people use these services daily. Uber and Lyft accidents happen for the same reasons that all other accidents happen, but they tend to generate more complex legal issues for the victims hurt in these incidents. If you or a loved one recently experienced such an accident, a Reno rideshare accident lawyer is a valuable resource to consult.

Legal Counsel for Victims of Uber and Lyft Accidents in Reno, NV

The team at Easton & Easton has years of experience handling all types of personal injury cases in Reno, including those pertaining to rideshare accidents. While the recovery process after a rideshare accident will typically begin with an auto insurance claim, just like after most other types of accidents, dealing with insurance after Uber and Lyft accidents is very different. You may need to file a claim against the at-fault driver and then another against the rideshare company.

It is also possible that you may not be able to fully recover your losses through insurance alone and will need to file a personal injury suit against whoever caused your accident. In this situation, you will need a Reno rideshare accident lawyer you can trust to help determine your most effective legal options for resolving the case as swiftly as possible and for as much compensation as possible.

When you choose Easton & Easton to represent you in the aftermath of an Uber or Lyft accident in Reno, our team can be ready to guide you through every step of your recovery process. From gathering the evidence you need to prove fault to proving the full extent of your claimable damages, you can rely on our team to assist you with your auto insurance claims and with building a personal injury case if necessary for your recovery.

Best Reno Rideshare Accident Lawyer

Recovering From Uber and Lyft Accidents in Reno, NV

The first challenge you will face after any motor vehicle accident in Reno is proving fault. You must identify the party or parties responsible for causing the accident before you will be able to recover any compensation for the resulting damages. Uber and Lyft accidents can happen because of all types of negligence, such as distracted driving and speeding; they may also happen from illegal misconduct like drunk driving.

Once you have proven the cause of your accident, your first option for recovery is to file an auto insurance claim against the at-fault driver. If a rideshare driver caused your accident, the rideshare company’s insurance may also come into play. Typically, the victim of a rideshare accident caused by a rideshare driver will need to file a claim against the driver’s personal auto insurance policy, and then they can claim against the rideshare company’s insurance for the rest.

Rideshare company insurance applies in different tiers based on the timing of an accident, and if insurance cannot fully cover your losses, you will need to file a personal injury claim to recover the rest. The team at Easton & Easton is ready to help you recover as fully as the law allows. You have a short time in which to file your case after your accident, so it is vital to reach out to a Reno rideshare accident lawyer as soon as possible so they can begin working on your case.


Q: How Much Compensation Can I Claim for a Rideshare Accident in Reno?

A: The party responsible for causing your accident is liable for all associated damages. You will have the right to seek compensation for vehicle repair costs, medical expenses, lost wages, and your pain and suffering. Some of these losses may be repaid by auto insurance, including both the at-fault driver’s and the rideshare company’s, but you will likely need to file a personal injury claim to ensure the fullest possible recovery.

Q: What Happens if I Partially Caused My Rideshare Accident?

A: The state applies the modified comparative negligence rule in any civil claim in which more than one party shares fault for the damages cited in the claim. If the courts determine that a plaintiff is found partially liable, they will lose a percentage of their final case award equal to their percentage of fault, but only if they are less than 50% at fault. If a plaintiff is found 50% or more at fault, they cannot claim compensation from any other liable party and will be responsible for their own damages.

Q: How Long Do I Have to File a Rideshare Accident Claim?

A: Recovery from any car accident in Reno is likely to begin with an auto insurance claim against the at-fault driver, and you may have only a few days in which to file the claim. If you intend to file a personal injury claim of any kind, there is a two-year statute of limitations that begins on the date your injury occurred. If you do not file your claim with the court within this time limit, you lose your chance to recover compensation from the defendant.

Q: Why Should I Hire a Reno Rideshare Accident Lawyer?

A: It is technically possible for you to pursue compensation for your recent damages without hiring an attorney, but you are far more likely to succeed with all of your recovery efforts when you have legal counsel. Additionally, your attorney can handle all your legal affairs so you can focus on your recovery with peace of mind. You can rely on them to guide you through the auto insurance claim filing process and to build an effective personal injury claim for you.

Q: What Will It Cost to Hire a Reno Rideshare Accident Lawyer?

A: Easton & Easton can provide legal representation for your rideshare accident case on a contingency fee basis. This means you will owe a percentage of your final case award as our fee, and only after we have won your case. This ensures your legal expenses do not overtake your recovery and that legal counsel is accessible and affordable when you need it most. If we are unable to secure compensation for you, you pay nothing in legal fees.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have the professional experience and resources necessary to resolve the toughest rideshare accident claims in Reno. You have a limited time in which to pursue your recovery, so it is vital that you connect with a trustworthy Reno rideshare accident lawyer as soon as you are able.

Coming out of my first auto accident as an adult, a very difficult and scary time to navigate and understand, I was so incredibly thankful to have been put in contact with Easton & Easton.

I could not be more pleased with the services provided by the Law Offices of W. Douglas Easton. The senior partner Mr. Easton took the time to meet with me and my wife while I was still in the hospital, where he gave my family hope that there was light at the end of a very long, and very dark tunnel. Matt Easton then worked my case, and because of his dedication, experience and expertise I received a settlement that was larger than I EVER thought possible. It was truly astounding! Matt and the entire team at Easton & Easton looked out for me throughout my recovery, and in the end they gave me my life back. Five stars is not enough. Thanks Matt! Thanks Easton & Easton!

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

Jeffrey N.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless. They were so understanding and helpful! The entire thing was a gigantic mess, yet Travis managed to make it run like clockwork. I would HIGHLY recommend Easton & Easton! If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
