If you are injured in an incident involving a rideshare vehicle, the lawyers at The Skolnick Weiser Law Firm, LLC, can help.
When You Are Injured In A Collision
As with any type of vehicle, one being used to rideshare could be involved in a crash. The injuries you suffer in such a car accident may be serious. Whether you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, an occupant in another car, or a pedestrian involved in a collision, if you are injured, you may be able to take legal action.
Focus On Recovering While We Deal With Insurance Companies
While legal action following any crash can be complex, this is even more so when an Uber or Lyft vehicle is involved. This is because drivers for the companies are considered "independent contractors" rather than employees. As a result, you may seek to recover not only from the rideshare company's insurer, but the driver's insurance company as well.
Dealing with insurance companies to recover for your injuries is complicated. We understand how insurance companies approach these cases to their advantage. Let us put that knowledge to work for you to make sure you get all that you deserve. If you contact us for help following your injury, you can focus on recovering while we take care of the legal matters.
