Top Uber and Lyft Car Accident Lawyers

Ride-sharing companies are a ubiquitous presence in today’s world. They offer a more cost-effective and faster alternative to hiring a taxi, making it an attractive option for daily commuters who want to avoid public transport. A quick tap on an app can bring one of the available vehicles right to your door, and often at prices lower than those of conventional taxis. Nonetheless, like all motorized forms of transportation, ride sharing unfortunately carries the possibility of accidents. So what happens if occupants of shared rides get into accidents?

If you’ve been involved in an accident that included a rideshare car, The Helo Law Firm suggest taking action to try and secure a personal injury award from the company in question. Companies that provide these services normally have a substantial underlying policy of $1,000,000 with an excess policy of $5,000,000; however, they may contest claims arising from accidents without passengers. To learn more about your rights as a victim, reach out to experienced attorneys who specialize in dealing with carsharing cases.

Rideshare Accidents Explained

No matter the precautions taken, no one can be completely sure that accidents won’t occur. Ridesharing Companies such as Uber and Lyft take adequate steps to check a driver’s background and driving history and make sure they have proper insurance coverage; however, fatigued drivers working regular jobs on top of overtime shifts may still become distracted or exhausted behind the wheel. This can potentially lead to accidents that might otherwise have been avoided.

In rideshare cars, negligent or reckless driving is another major cause of accidents. In order to avoid accidents, drivers should follow all traffic rules, drive within speed limits, or pass vehicles in a safe manner. They should avoid erratic or rash driving as it may result in accidents. Furthermore, drivers of Ubers or Lyft should avoid taking dangerous shortcuts to reach their destinations, since this may result in accidents.

Do I Have To Pay Anything Up Front and Out Of Pocket?

You will never have to pay for our services out-of-pocket. All of our services are provided on a contingency basis, so if we are unable to win your case, we will charge nothing. In order to collect our fees, we must make sure the insurance will cover them. Therefore, we will strive to provide you with the best results possible.

Why Don’t You Just Go Through The Insurance Company?

One of the most widely-held misunderstandings is that insurance will typically look out for you. However, you are actually going after the defendant’s insurance, and they are tasked with trying to minimize your claim payout. Like every other organization, their main goal is to give you as little as possible. To compound this situation, they may use underhanded techniques such as recording conversations with you, or attempting to convince you your injuries are not genuine or not as severe. An experienced attorney, like us at Helo Law Firm, can help prevent these tactics from being used against you.

How Much Compensation Can You Receive?

If you experience any pain or strain in any body part, such as your back or neck, that is soft tissue damage. That is a very serious injury. Obviously, there are also higher degrees of injuries, such as broken bones, fractures, and trauma. If you are experiencing discomfort after a car accident, please let us know.
