Being Injured In A Car Accident Can Be Expensive; If It Involved A Ridesharing Service, You Deserve Compensation.
Depending on how serious your injuries were, you may have required extensive medical care; this isn’t cheap, even if you have good health insurance! You may have to pay for medical bills for items such as:
- Ambulatory transport from the scene to the nearest emergency room
- Hospitalization (including overnight stays)
- Medications and medical devices
- Blood transfusions and other blood work
- Imaging tests like X-rays and CT scans
- Physical therapy and chiropractic care
- Deductibles and copays
- Mental health counseling
- And more.
When you factor in the cost of lost wages, from time spent recovering out of work (using PTO or going without pay altogether), the total cost of your injuries could add up to tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Why Do You Need To Work With Jacksonville Uber/Lyft Accident Injury Lawyers?
Recovering damages in Uber and Lyft accidents is more complicated to navigate than in normal passenger vehicle accidents. This is because rideshare drivers are technically considered “contractors” of the company, not employees. If the driver was at fault, you would need to seek damages through their insurance policy. If the company was at fault for failing to conduct a background check or inspect the vehicle, only then could you pursue damages through them. Either way, negligence must be proven in order to win compensation, and this can be extremely difficult. Insurance companies are notorious for denying or devaluing claims, and Uber and Lyft both have large legal teams working for them. You need a legal team on your side!
Our lawyers can carefully investigate the collision, gather evidence, and explain all of your legal options. We will take care of all of the paperwork and communications for you so you can focus on getting better. We can negotiate for you, and we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial if that’s what it takes to recover the highest settlement possible. Depending on where you were in relation to the driver at the time of the accident (passenger? pedestrian? driver of another vehicle?) and whether or not the ride was actively transporting a passenger/on its way to pick up a passenger, we can help you understand how much your claim may be worth.
