Speed bump incidents can contribute to a number of injuries, some of which could be very dangerous to passengers. Some examples of the injuries that affected parties could experience include the following:
- Head injuries

Did you or a member of your family suffer any of the harm listed above after a speed bump incident in an Uber or Lyft? If so, you might have many questions about your right to sue.

Can I Sue?
Do I have an injury case if I was injured in a speed bump incident? Can I sue if I was injured after a driver sped through a speed bump and caused my injury? Can I file an injury lawsuit? Yes, you could be eligible to file an injury lawsuit against Uber or Lyft if you were injured in a speed bump accident as you were riding as a passenger.
Your right to sue is based on the fact that all drivers (even rideshare drivers) have a duty to drive safely whenever on the road; this includes following all traffic rules and signals, including slowing down for speed bumps. When drivers fail to drive safely, they are breaching their duty of care and putting their drivers at risk of incidents. When an incident occurs and innocent passengers are harmed, the driver could be held accountable.
However, in cases where rideshare companies are involved, liability is typically transferred to the rideshare company. This is because rideshare companies have insurance companies that cover passengers in the case of the accident. The insurance coverage applies to passengers any time that they are injured during an active ride, regardless of the type of incident.
So, yes – you could sue. You could file a claim against Uber or Lyft and benefit from their million-dollar insurance coverage. If you are interested in learning more about your right to file your lawsuit against Uber or Lyft for the harm resulting from a speed bump incident, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm immediately.
