Expenses Related To The Accident
When you’re injured in an accident, it can affect you physically, emotionally and financially. You may require psychiatric and physical therapy, which often aren’t covered by insurance, and the additional medical costs related to treating your injuries can add up quickly. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may find yourself responsible for up to thousands of dollars of medical bills. You may have to pay for items related to:
- Ambulance transport
- Hospital/ER visit
- Body casts/wheelchairs
- CT scans, X-rays, MRIs
- Intensive care
- Emergency dental care
- Chiropractic care
- Bloodwork and transfusions
- And more.
On top of these costs, you may be unable to return to work for weeks or even months; you may not get paid during this time, which only causes more financial strain for you.
Why Do You Need To Work With Our Fort Myers Uber/Lyft Accident Injury Lawyers?
When you’re injured in a rideshare accident, recovering compensation can be more difficult than it seems. This is because rideshare drivers aren’t legally considered employees of Uber or Lyft, but rather are individual contractors for the companies. If the driver was at fault for an accident, you’d need to seek compensation from their individual insurance policy. If Uber or Lyft failed to do a proper background check and hired a driver under false pretenses, then the company themselves would be responsible for covering the cost of your damages or injuries. No matter the case, it can be hard to prove negligence in a rideshare accident, which is why you need to work with experienced Fort Myers Uber/Lyft accident injury lawyers who are familiar with the laws surrounding ridesharing and who will diligently pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf.
We will investigate your accident and explain all of your legal options moving forward. We take pride in keeping our clients informed so you know what to expect at each step of your case!
