Uber and Lyft Accidents

It is undeniable that rideshare has exploded, which has put both Uber and Lyft drivers as well as Uber or Lyft passengers at risk. These cases involve multiple insurance policies and sometimes insurance denials. We have handled dozens of these cases, for drivers and passengers, as well as for those who have been struck by an Uber or Lyft.

 We have handled dozens of cases of clients where Uber or Lyft was involved in New Orleans, Metairie, and all over Louisiana, which can present in a number of ways:
