New Orleans Taxi And Rideshare Accidents Lawyers
Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have grown in popularity for a number of reasons. Whether you are trying to find a safe ride home after a night out or a ride to the airport, you have likely used one of these services.

Talk with an attorney from our firm, Bruno & Bruno, if you have been hurt in a taxi or rideshare accident. With offices in New Orleans and Covington, we have decades of experience serving clients throughout Louisiana’s North Shore and South Shore in all types of motor vehicle accident claims, including rideshare accident claims. We can help you through the process if you have been hurt or lost a loved one due to negligence from a taxi driver or an Uber driver.
Who Is At Fault For An Uber, Lyft Or Other Rideshare Accident?
In an accident caused by an Uber driver, many people don’t have any idea how to proceed legally. Unlike a taxi accident, an Uber accident involves individual parties giving rides to others, but not hired directly by the company organizing the rides. This complicates the laws and regulations involved with bringing a claim.
Rideshare drivers are insured by the company they drive for. Uber drivers, for example, are insured for a minimum of $1 million to third parties, like you, the rider, once they accept your ride request.
Our lawyers have the extensive experience, legal knowledge and tenacity to find a way to get you full and fair compensation if you have been in an Uber accident or accident in other rideshare situations.
Taxicabs in New Orleans, like in any other city, present significant risks to the rest of car and truck drivers and pedestrians throughout the area. Taxi drivers need to drive aggressively to keep available to pick up other fares and thus get the further work needed. While most taxi drivers do not want to hurt other drivers or pedestrians, the reality is they have to move quickly to get the fares they need. At Bruno & Bruno, we represent clients in New Orleans, Covington and other areas throughout Louisiana.
