Automobile accidents can be life-altering events that leave an injured person and their families devastated, wondering where to turn for help. If the at-fault driver is working for a ridesharing service such as Uber or Lyft, the process of filing an injury claim is complicated and involved. If you or a family member was injured in an automobile accident while a passenger with Uber or Lyft, or was in a collision with one of their drivers, you need a veteran personal injury attorney to help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
At Rodriguez Law Firm, our team of personal injury attorneys has the experience and knowledge to navigate the system and achieve a fair resolution in an accident case involving Uber or Lyft. We believe that injured victims deserve to recover the maximum possible compensation, and we do everything possible to reach a favorable outcome for the people we represent.
Uber and Lyft Accidents
While some car accidents result in minor injuries, in other cases, the injuries are very serious or fatal. Some of the common injuries sustained in automobile accidents include:
- Brain injuries
- Spine injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Uber / Lyft Accidents
How Much Is My Case Worth?
The financial compensation you deserve depends on the severity of your injuries and the short and long-term impact on your quality of life. At Rodriguez Law Firm, we work with our clients, medical experts, and financial experts to determine the value of a case. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, including compensation for:
- Immediate and long-term medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Emotional anguish
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
If you suffered the death of a family member, you might have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation from the responsible parties.
Who Is Liable In An Uber Or Lyft Accident?
When an individual is involved in an accident while driving for Uber, Lyft, or any other ridesharing service, there is a complication in filing a claim or lawsuit. It is necessary to identify which vehicle insurance policy was in force. Individual auto insurance policies do not cover damages if the individual is performing a commercial service.
Uber and Lyft only cover the driver from the time the driver accepts the ride. Thankfully, our knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help navigate this complicated situation to help you fight for justice and full compensation. With the right lawyer representing you, your ability to recover compensation can be significantly improved.
