Rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft provide users with the luxury of reaching their final destination without the hassle of navigating Dallas in their own cars.
Although rideshares offer an excellent alternative to traditional transportation, drivers are only human and accidents are always a possibility. Unfortunately, personal injury accidents that result from a rideshare accident can seem like a difficult win for a passenger who needs compensation after a debilitating accident.
Questions of who is truly at fault and how to receive compensation from insurance companies or lawsuits can be overwhelming for a person who has been recently involved in a serious accident.
Let the personal injury lawyers of Bober Law Firm help you and your family get through this incident fully recovered and compensated.
Even as a Passenger, Personal Injury Costs Can Stack Up
Although most of us eagerly get into a rideshare vehicle to avoid the city rush, the thought of injury rarely crosses a passenger’s mind. However, the fact is, when getting into any vehicle there is always the risk of a car accident that could leave you with critical injuries or worse.
Some of the most common vehicle accident injuries that can lead to medical expenses include:
- Head Trauma
- Broken Ribs
- Internal Bleeding
- Other Broken Bones, and more!
Sometimes injuries may not even surface for days yet can still become serious problems for your finances as you go through recovery and medical treatment.
If you’ve been in an accident at all, make sure to reach out to a personal injury lawyer first so that your case can start to come together. Even if your injuries aren’t reported at the scene of the accident, with us on your side from the start, we can help you avoid financial troubles and fight insurance companies and parties at fault for the compensation you deserve!
Who is at Fault in an Uber/Lyft Accident?
When you are a passenger involved in a rideshare accident, you’ll still need compensation for injuries, medical bills, and expense coverage if you lose the ability to work.
One of the biggest stressors about these cases for victims is determining who is at fault, the driver, the company, or other vehicles involved.
The biggest gray area in these accidents is the employment contract between a driver and the company. Uber and Lyft have worked hard to not call their drivers employees, but “independent contractors.”
These distinctions lie in extremely legal territory and can be difficult for the average accident victim to work around when determining who is at fault.
The Dallas personal injury attorneys at Bober Law Firm can help you understand your case and effectively communicate with the parties at fault, ensuring that your family is compensated after a rideshare incident.
Are You Eligible for Compensation?
Once we’ve determined who is truly at fault in your case, we can start working towards collecting compensation that helps keep your family financially secure.
Some of the compensation we obtain for our clients include the following:
- Emergency care, medical expenses, and follow-up costs that pertain to injuries sustained in the accident
- Future medical expenses that will arise due to accident injuries
- Loss of wages
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
