Todd J. Leonard Law Firm Addresses Unique Challenges of Uber and Lyft Accidents in New Jersey


Morris County, New Jersey – Todd J. Leonard, Esq., a recognized legal expert in personal injury cases, is offering advice to individuals involved in Uber and Lyft accidents in New Jersey. The firm recognizes the complexities of such cases, which includes when the accident occurred; i.e., was the driver logged into the rideshare app looking for ride requests, or did they already have a passenger in their vehicle? These scenarios can be determining factors.

Given the nature of their job, rideshare drivers are often distracted, as they have to constantly pay attention to their rideshare app as they are looking for passenger requests, or may get distracted by talking to their passenger while driving, or look at their navigation map for directions.

The New Jersey State Police’s 2023 Year-to-Date Fatal Crash Statistics has already recorded 240 crashes and 252 fatalities. Per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving claimed the lives of 3,522 people in 2021. In a recent study conducted by Rowan University, it was also discovered that 20-25% of New Jersey drivers participated in distracted driving, which is the number one cause of fatal crashes in the state.

The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm stands ready to guide clients through the nuances of rideshare accident cases, from determining responsibility, to identifying available liability insurance for compensation. In New Jersey, injured passengers in rideshare accidents are insured up to $1.5 million while transporting a passenger, including $1.5 million in uninsured/underinsured motorist protection.

“It is critical for anyone involved in a New Jersey crash with a rideshare driver to seek legal counsel. We can help navigate your legal rights and provide a roadmap for your case,” said Todd Leonard, founder of Todd J. Leonard Law Firm. “Our firm has proven experience in protecting the rights of our clients and ensuring they receive maximum compensation for their injuries, or if they lost a loved one in a fatal rideshare accident.”

Injuries from these accidents can be severe, ranging from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, to permanent scarring, and sadly can also cause the death of your loved one. Treatment costs for such injuries can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The firm’s team of dedicated attorneys is prepared to represent clients who have suffered severe injuries in an Uber or Lyft accident, or who have lost a loved one due to such an accident.
