Why to Hire a Rideshare Attorney if Involved in an Uber or Lyft Accident

If you have been involved in an Uber accident, it is generally a good idea to consider hiring a rideshare lawyer, especially if you sustained injuries or significant damages. Rideshare accidents can involve complex legal and insurance issues, and having an experienced lawyer on your side can be beneficial for the following reasons:

  1. Understanding of Rideshare Laws and Policies: Rideshare companies like Uber have specific insurance policies and protocols in place for accidents involving their drivers. A rideshare lawyer will have a deep understanding of these policies and how they apply to your case.

  2. Dealing with Insurance Companies: Insurance companies involved in rideshare accidents may try to minimize their liability or offer low settlements. A rideshare lawyer can handle negotiations with the insurance companies and work to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

  3. Determining Liability: In rideshare accidents, liability can be complex, as multiple parties (the Uber driver, other drivers, and the rideshare company) may be involved. A lawyer can help identify the responsible parties and build a strong case for your claim.

  4. Gathering Evidence: A rideshare lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence, such as witness statements, accident reports, and any available video footage from the Uber app or nearby surveillance cameras.

  5. Calculating Damages: Determining the full extent of your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future costs, can be challenging. A lawyer can accurately assess your damages to seek appropriate compensation.

  6. Filing a Lawsuit if Necessary: If negotiations with the insurance companies do not lead to a fair settlement, a rideshare lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent you in court.

  7. Protecting Your Rights: A lawyer will advocate for your rights and protect you from any attempts to shift blame or downplay your injuries.

  8. Personalized Legal Advice: Each rideshare accident case is unique, and a rideshare lawyer can provide personalized legal advice tailored to your specific circumstances.

When hiring a rideshare lawyer, look for an attorney with experience in handling rideshare accident cases and a track record of successful outcomes. Schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case, learn about the lawyer’s approach, and decide if they are the right fit for you.

Keep in mind that most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if they successfully recover compensation for you. This arrangement can help alleviate any financial burden upfront and ensure your lawyer is motivated to work diligently on your case.

Boualem – Rideshare Driver

While all other offices turned me down because they deemed my cause unworthy of fighting for, Mr. Sean J. O’Bryan, was the only attorney who widely opened his office and decided to retain my case. Always available when needed and responded to my inquiries in timely manners. I highly recommend any Uber/Lyft drivers to reach out to them in case of accidents/injuries.
