Do I need an attorney after an Uber or Lyft accident?

You need a lawyer after a rideshare accident.You may have been in a minor car accident before, and you may have handled the insurance claim on your own. However, as a passenger who was injured in an Uber or Lyft crash, you should not attempt to handle a claim for compensation on your own. If you are seeking damages from a rideshare company for injuries sustained in a Northwest Florida crash caused by their driver, you should absolutely hire a lawyer to represent you.

What a Lawyer Will Do for You

You cannot trust Uber or Lyft to pay you what you are owed when their driver was at fault for a crash. Even though they have insurance to cover these claims, they will fight to pay you as little as possible. 

To get the full compensation you deserve, you will have to prove that your driver’s negligence or carelessness caused the crash. This is not an easy task, but a Florida personal injury lawyer working on your behalf will do the following for you:

  • Conduct a full investigation. An experienced car accident attorney has experts he can call to investigate how the crash happened and gather evidence of the driver’s negligence. 
  • Determine the fair value of your case. Your past, current, and future medical costs, as well as your lost wages and lost future earning capacity, will all be calculated to determine the full value of your claim.
  • Negotiate with the right insurance companies. Your attorney will be in a much stronger position to deal with the insurance companies for the driver and for the rideshare company than you are as an individual.
  • Protect your rights in court. If your case ends up going to trial, your attorney will be prepared to provide evidence of the driver’s negligence and argue your right to full compensation.
