Helping Victims Of Ride-Sharing Accidents Through Complex Recovery
Houston is a hotspot for Uber, Lyft and several up-and-coming ride-sharing apps. Drivers for these companies jockey for your business, and it is an intense competition. Ride-share drivers need no special training or licensing, just a desire to make as much money as they can by accepting as many riders as possible. This often means ride-share drivers are checking the app for new customers or programming navigational systems for the fastest route to their passenger’s destination.
The attorneys at Ivey Law Firm, P.C., have seen our share of accident victims injured through the negligence or recklessness of an Uber or Lyft driver. We have the knowledge and experience to assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Why Do You Need An Attorney After A Ride-Share Accident?
You may feel that handling an Uber or Lyft accident is no different from an insurance or legal claim in your personal vehicle. However, there are numerous reasons why having a lawyer on your side can improve your chances of obtaining the most successful outcome possible. Ivey Law Firm, P.C., is ready to take action on your behalf in the face of the many challenges your case presents, including these:
- A ride-share company may share in a driver’s liability if the company failed to properly screen the driver for accident history.
- Insurance coverage for ride-share drivers is relatively new and quite confusing, but an experienced attorney will know how to navigate the waters.
- Drivers and ride-sharing companies may have multiple insurance providers, and the circumstances of the accident could determine which provider to pursue for payment.
- State laws surrounding ride-sharing continue to evolve, and a Texas attorney will be knowledgeable of the most recent legal developments and how to use them to your advantage.
Whether you were a ride-sharing passenger or you were in your personal car when a ride-share driver collided with you, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries and the damages you incurred.
