Manhattan & Bronx NYC Uber & Lyft Rideshare Injury Attorney Auto Accident Lawyer

Manhattan Uber & Lyft Injury Attorney Richard M. Kenny Helps New Yorkers Injured While Riding In One Of The Rideshare Vehicles, Or Injured By One Either In Their Own Vehicle Or As A Passenger.

New York, United States - July 23, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Last year New York city became the first US city to pass legislation intended to put a ceiling on the number of ride-sharing vehicles on its Road. Councilman Ritchie Torres was quoted as saying, “no longer with the city of New York stand by idly while unfettered growth in the for-hire sector causes ever-worsening traffic congestion, ever-rising environmental degrading, and ever-deepening human suffering.” The Central Bronx council representative Echoed the sentiment of a number of New Yorkers, in particular those representing the once-ubiquitous Yellow Cabs that were so iconic as to be one of the chief images often associated with New York City. Nevertheless, last year Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft surpassed the number of Yellow Cabs on the road, a change which some hailed as a change for the better. others a change for the worse. It seems that overall incidences of drunk driving or decreased where ride-sharing companies are readily available, but overall incidences of traffic accidents has seemed to increase.

The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny represents New Yorkers and Bronx residents who have been injured while being a passenger of a Rideshare service like Uber and Lyft, or who have been injured by one of their vehicles. If injured, such persons should seek medical attention first, then call 212-421-0300 or visit Mr. Kenny online.

The benefits of Rideshare companies like Lyft and Uber in the Bronx and Brooklyn and Manhattan is that the gamble of getting a ride is gone. As ubiquitous as Yellow Cabs were, so also were jokes about the smell and cleanliness of such vehicles, even if on the whole they were sufficiently safe and sanitary. Now, rideshares can choose their particular vehicle which has a rating based on previous passengers, Who will comment on the cleanliness and politeness of the driver. However, the coin does flip both ways and this does allow drivers to know that the people that they will be picking up will also generally be polite. some of our good this puts the risk of being carjacked potentially lower when someone is picking up a known person who has been rated by drivers, although others will site – tongue-in-cheek – that the concept of meeting strangers online and either getting rides from them or giving them rides in one’s own vehicle is the type of thing that 20 years ago one was told to never do.

“If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving a Rideshare service vehicle, like an Uber or a Lyft, know that they are insured, often times for over $1,000,000 per incident,” said a spokesperson for The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny. “Of course, insurance companies are in the business of paying out the minimum, not the maximum, and it can be difficult to cover all of one’s medical expenses as well as the repercussions from such injuries when one simply deals with an insurance company without legal representation. We offer a completely free phone consultation for any Resident of New York who’s been injured in any way with a Rideshare vehicle.”
