We Help Rideshare Accident Victims Get the Compensation They Need to Recover
Uber and Lyft Accident Attorneys
Young people might think Uber has been around forever but they were actually founded in March 2009 in San Francisco. Today the name Uber is synonymous with needing a ride. People “Uber” it home from the bar, to the airport, or any time they just need a lift. And speaking of a lift, Lyft is the biggest competitor for Uber and the two companies dominate the rideshare industry with billions of dollars in revenue, and millions of rides worldwide.
If you are injured in an accident while traveling in any ride share vehicle, you should reach out to a personal injury attorney who has experience dealing with these situations. Lyft and Uber spend millions of dollars each year on their own attorneys and they often resist paying out what they should. They may even fight paying anything, so it’s not wise to get into a fight like that without help.
Shortly after an accident you may be contacted by someone from the ride share company or their insurance representatives about a fast settlement. We caution against that because it is in their best interest to offer less than you may deserve. We fight for every client to obtain the maximum amount to pay for their medical bills, damages, and pain & suffering.
If you have used one of the ride share services you may have noticed the drivers are constantly looking at their phones to monitor the app for directions and future rides. This may or may not contribute to accidents but studies are underway to learn more about the causes of Uber and Lyft accidents.
The top causes of accidents in the U.S. are:
- Distracted Driving. Distracted drivers are the top cause of car accidents in the U.S. today.
- Drunk Driving.
- Reckless Driving.
- Running Red Lights.
- Running Stop Signs.
What if you are involved in an accident but you don’t seem to be seriously injured?
Many people feel a little bumped around and bruised after an accident but don’t bother to go to the hospital. Later, they sometimes realize they have back or neck pain and don’t know what to do.
If you’re involved in any accident it’s best to be examined by a doctor immediately for injuries that might be unnoticeable at first but manifest later with severe pain. A doctor understands these types of injuries.
