Why you may need a trial attorney to help navigate your claim with Uber or Lyft

Uber and Lyft are Fortune 500 companies worth multi-billions of dollars. If you or a loved one has been injured by an Uber or Lyft driver, trying to navigate your claim with them can be overwhelming. The entire process is complex and takes time. Having an experienced attorney in handling rideshare claims (and willing to sue Uber or Lyft on your behalf if they do not properly value your claim) will relieve you of much of the stress that dealing with Uber or Lyft can cause.
We can help you in the following ways:
  • Advise you and make recommendations that empower you to make the necessary decisions about your claims and case against Uber/Lyft;
  • Press your claim with Uber/Lyft so that you use your energy to recover from your injuries;
  • Free you from the stress of dealing with the insurance adjusters who represent Uber/Lyft (these are insurance company employees or agents who investigate and handle Uber claims) and the lawyers that represent Uber/Lyft;
  • Advise you immediately about what you should and should not post about the accident or incident, your injuries, your damages, and your activities on any social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • Investigate and collect all evidence and information needed to process your claims and develop your case against Uber;
  • Find all of available insurance coverage, evaluate it, and help you to get the benefits due you (whether it be from the Uber/Lyft driver individually or Uber or both);
  • Find the quickest way of getting your medical bills paid and ensure that the parties responsible pay those bills on time;
  • Protect you from medical creditors during the claims process;
  • Answer all your questions throughout the process;
  • Evaluate all the evidence and estimate what your case is likely worth (1) if a jury decides your case, or (2) if it is settled through negotiation with Uber prior to trial;
  • Make recommendations to you about whether or not you should accept settlement offers and counteroffers when negotiating with Uber/Lyft;
  • Determine how much money should be spent getting ready and going to court based on the likely outcome of your case against Uber/Lyft at trial;
  • Negotiate with any insurance companies involved to get all benefits due to you;
  • Prepare your case for trial and try the case to a judge or jury if Uber/Lyft doesn’t offer an appropriate settlement or value your case appropriately.
