How Rideshare Accident Cases Work

 If you have been hurt in an Uber or Lyft, you you may be hoping to seek justice for your damages. You might have pretty serious injuries.

The first thing you should do is seek medical attention. If you’re able to stay on the scene to collect evidence in the form of photos, videos, and witness contact info, do that. If not, head straight to the emergency room and have a family member, friend, or even a lawyer go to the scene before it gets cleaned up to gather evidence for you.

You will be essentially asking the liable party’s insurance company to cover your damages in a compensation award. One of our Orlando rideshare accident lawyers can help you hold them accountable.

Do not try to do this alone, as you are likely not going to get the results you deserve without strong legal representation.

The insurance company will likely offer you a settlement early on in the case just to get it all over and done with. Do not take this first settlement offer, as it is almost always going to be a low offer. Have the right attorneys by your side to fight for your full and fair compensation award.

Representing Rideshare Accident Victims

Uber and Lyft are some of the most convenient and popular methods of transportation.  Because of the popularity and growth of these companies, accidents involving drivers for these companies continue to increase. Fortunately, both drivers and passengers have special protections in the event of an accident.   That is why these accidents are more complex than average car crash cases.  While the driver of the Uber/Lyft vehicle may have caused the accident, Uber/Lyft may also be held liable. If you or a loved one was injured in a rideshare accident, it is important to have an attorney with experience in these types of accidents.

The lawyers at Norden Leacox have over 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases and car crashes.  They will provide you with a free consultation, advising you of your legal rights and what courses of action they recommend, as well as providing you with a strategy to try and get your case resolved.  If the case cannot be resolved out of Court, the experienced lawyers of Norden Leacox will file a lawsuit on your behalf, and aggressively represent you in court.  Although most cases settle prior to trial, if the case requires a jury trial, they will present your case to the jury using the many years of experience they have in both defending insurance companies and large corporations and representing injured people.
