San Diego, Orange County, Riverside and Los Angeles Rideshare Accident Attorneys
If you are involved in a car accident while you are a passenger in an Uber or a Lyft it is very important that you call an attorney right away. These rideshare companies have large insurance policies for bodily injury. However, they do not like to pay out on the claims. On some occasions a lawyer can get you 5-10 times more than if you did not have an attorney.
Right after being involved in an Uber or Lyft accident there are a couple very important things you need to remember:
- Get as much information from your driver as you can
- Get as much information from any other drivers that you can
- Call the police if possible
- Screenshot information about the ride from the rideshare app
- Take an ambulance to the hospital if you feel it is needed and you are in pain
- Call an attorney immediately to get a free consultation on what to do next
These things are so important and can literally make or break your case. Even if you are a passenger in an accident, pain, soreness or injuries will covered by the insurance company.
Free Consultations for all Rideshare Accident Cases
At our law firm we have offices in San Diego, Orange County, Riverside and Los Angeles. We know how each city works and the particular things that need to be said to adjusters. In Los Angeles for example, medical costs are often higher and more abstract treatments are accepted. For San Diego Car Accidents, insurance adjusters have different expectations to costs and what acceptable treatment is for each individual. Whatever city you are in when the accident occurs, just let us know and we are here to help.
Building a Car Accident Case against Uber or Lyft
At our firm we have heard so many times people telling us that they “are in pain but feel bad going to the doctor”. They act like they are doing something wrong just trying to feel as they did before the accident. We make sure to tell everyone that there is nothing wrong with trying to feel better. That is why people have car insurance and it is the insurance company’s responsibility to pay for all reasonable medical expenses. That can include going to a doctor, getting any radiology that is necessary, going to a chiropractor or physical therapy and any other treatment that will make the client feel better.
It is important to have an attorney there to guide you through this process. Our attorneys can also advise you exactly what you should be doing next. This is something that we do on every single case and by doing that we know how to maximize the settlement amount.
