If you are injured in an accident involving Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare company, give us a call right away. We’ve been helping people hurt in rideshare accidents recover money since 2015 when Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval approved legislation that allowed ride-sharing services to officially operate in the state.
Because ridesharing is fairly new in Nevada, and the structure of these companies is unique, pursuing compensation in a personal injury claim can be challenging. Our team has successfully fought for victims of rideshare accidents and we want to help you recover money for your losses. Call 702-529-1011 today. Your consultation is free.
Our team understands how confusing rideshare accidents can be and we want to make your recovery as easy as possible. While you can depend on us to offer the support and resources you need after a wreck, we’d also like to provide you with important information about Uber and Lyft accidents to help you protect your rights.
The way insurance coverage is applied following a Lyft or Uber accident is dependent on the scenario at hand when a crash happens. The status of the rideshare vehicle is one of the most important factors used to determine liability when an accident occurs. The easiest way to think about liability is to divide possible scenarios into three periods.
Sometimes, multiple insurance companies are liable for injuries and deaths caused by Uber or Lyft drivers. When more than one insurance carrier is liable, recovering money can become challenging- especially if you’re not represented by a rideshare accident lawyer. The insurance companies will often point fingers at each other to avoid liability, impose delays to avoid paying their share, or use other tactics to make recovery difficult. In some cases, multiple insurance companies will even leverage their legal teams and resources to minimize, dispute, or even deny your claim.
Don’t try to negotiate a settlement under these conditions by yourself. You’ll likely walk away with an offer that is much less than what your case is worth. Our team will help you avoid the delays imposed by the insurance companies. We understand the complex insurance issues involved in rideshare accidents, how combined liability works, and how to negotiate a settlement when multiple parties are liable.
Rideshare companies have a team of professionals protecting their interests. You have Van Law Firm on your side. Call our office today so we can get you paid.
