Involved In A Rideshare Accident?
Rideshares are a common and convenient way to get around. While they’re generally safe, accidents do happen. They can cause significant injuries and legal headaches for passengers and drivers alike.
Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft and their insurance companies have a strong team of lawyers working to defend against claims. If you were a passenger involved in a rideshare crash, it’s important to have an attorney on your side, too.
At Winter & Rhoden, LLC, we can provide skilled representation to help you get the compensation you deserve. You shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial burdens of medical care, missed work and other expenses related to the accident. Our attorneys can serve as your voice, advocating for your rights and dealing with the insurance companies so you don’t have to.
How Uber And Lyft Accidents Are Different
Rideshare accidents involving Uber, Lyft or other companies are different in key ways from other auto accidents. Depending on the situation, you may need to seek compensation through the commercial insurance policy of the rideshare company. There are specific rules about when that coverage kicks in. There are also coverage caps to that insurance. If your case exceeds those limits, you will need to seek further sources of compensation, which can be complicated since personal auto insurance usually excludes coverage for driving-for-hire.
Our lawyers understand the nuances of these insurance issues. We can help you pursue maximum compensation from the right parties. You can rely on us to stand by you from the moment you hire us, working swiftly and strategically to lay the foundation for a strong claim. If we end up needing to pursue a personal injury claim in court, you can rest assured that you have a strong trial attorney on your side.
