If you or someone you love was injured in a recent rideshare accident, our car accident lawyer will help you fight for compensation. On your own, it can be hard to understand the legal parameters of your case. When we represent you, we will explain how we define negligence and how we determine which insurance company to pursue for damages.
At Van Law Firm, we are passionate about recovering damages for car accident victims and their families. Our Uber and Lyft rideshare accident lawyer will build the strongest possible case for you and fight for fair financial recovery.
Compensatory Damages We Request for an Uber or Lyft Rideshare Accident
When we determine the monetary value of your case, we assess its unique value based on the following economic and non-economic recoverable damages:
- Known and anticipated medical care bills
- Known and anticipated lost income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Property damage, loss, or diminishment
- Lasting impairment and disfigurement
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Ongoing mental and emotional anguish
- Wrongful death damages, where applicable
The case file we build for you will establish how much your personal injury case is worth. It will include bills, receipts, and estimates that document your economic damages and additional tangible proof that documents your non-economic damages.
How Van Law Advocates for You After an Uber or Lyft Rideshare Accident
Putting together all the evidence and moving parts of a personal injury claim can be a challenge. When our law firm accepts your case, we do all of the following to strengthen it:
- Conduct an independent accident investigation
- Determine its comprehensive monetary value
- Determine which insurance company to pursue
- Gather physical evidence and supporting documents
- Draft and file your insurance claim and lawsuit
- Handle all case-related communication
- Clarify legal and insurance language and jargon
- Interview accident witnesses and relevant experts
- Negotiate a fair monetary settlement
Our dedication to your case is only one of the reasons you should hire an attorney after a car accident. You will not have to deal with the complexities of your rideshare accident claim on your own. When we manage the details of your case, you can focus your time and attention on getting better.
The Cost of Hiring Van Law for Your Uber and Lyft Rideshare Accident Case
When we say it costs nothing out of your pocket to hire our law firm, we mean it. Our contingency-fee agreement means you only compensate our law firm after we recover compensation for you.
This fee structure—a percentage of your settlement instead of traditional hourly fees and expenses— is one of the ways personal injury settlements are distributed. It allows you to get legal guidance and support right from the start of your case and to avoid a potentially costly filing delay.

What You Need to Know About Uber and Lyft’s Rideshare Accident Insurance Coverage
Dealing with insurance companies in a personal injury accident can be stressful and time-consuming. The easiest way to do so is to let our team at Van Law handle all verbal, written, and electronic communication with the insurance company.
Our personal injury attorneys will clarify when we pursue compensation from the driver’s private insurance coverage—typically when they are not signed into the rideshare app or working.
Why Proving Negligence Is Critical in Your Rideshare Service Accident Case
Negligence is a pivotal part of your car accident case. Our investigation will establish its elements, including:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
Through our investigation, we may determine that an Uber driver, Lyft driver, or third-party driver is the liable party in your accident case. While building your case, we also explain how contributory negligence could limit or decrease your financial recovery and the steps we take to combat it.
Evidence Our Personal Injury Attorney Compiles for Your Uber or Lyft Case
To establish negligence, our rideshare accident attorneys build a compelling evidence collection. Based on the specifics of your rideshare accident case, the evidence we collect can include:
- Medical records
- Written prognosis
- Driving records
- Income records
- Police report
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Witness statements
- Accident reconstruction
Leave evidence gathering to our client-focused personal injury lawyers. In addition to building your case file, we present it to the insurance company with your settlement demand letter.
Social Media Posts Can Be Used as Evidence in Your Auto Accident Case
The at-fault party’s insurance or legal representative will also collect evidence. They can use any social media posts you make in your potential court case, so limit your interactions accordingly. Our legal team will explain the potential harm of social media posts about the accident. We recommend making anything you do post private and only accepting new friend requests from people you know.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
