Lyft offers prescreened drivers who own clean vehicles an opportunity to earn money at their own pace. If they’re not willing or able to drive, they simply turn the app off. Much like taxicabs of old, people can ‘hail’ a Lyft by simply logging into the app and requesting a ride. And, of course, like any other vehicle driving California roadways, accidents may occur resulting in serious bodily harm to drivers and passengers.
Accidents that happen by no fault of passenger or other driver are litigable. An experienced Santa Clarita Lyft accident attorney knows the importance of making victims financially whole after distressing incidents like Lyft collisions. Compass Law Group, PC offers an exceptional level of fierce litigation for accident victims like you.
When riders open their app to hail a Lyft, an accident is the furthest thing from their minds. Some come in from out of town, others are simply commuting to work. With places to go, and often limited time to get there, people who rely on ridesharing want every experience to be positive. So, when accidents do happen, the scene is often tragic. Nobody plans for Lyft drivers to be suddenly negligent; it just happens.
Like Uber, Lyft protects drivers and passengers in the event of an accident. The protection starts with the app is turned on and the driver has accepted a ride. Covering $1 million in total accident liabilities, Lyft’s insurer will take a vested interest in the accident to protect their finances. Our firm counters with an experienced Santa Clarita Lyft accident attorney, skilled in all areas of personal injury law.
After the usual fact gathering, are attorney will approach Lyft’s counsel, or their insurer, and attempt to work out fair yet respectable settlement terms. Companies with significant liability tend to avoid court litigation because it costs money and because our negotiation skills are some of the best in the industry, we often recover reasonable compensation for victims.
Remember, the accident was your fault. Don’t accept whatever measly settlement the insurer tries to approach you with. Make your first call after law enforcement to Compass Law Group, PC, and we’ll take the rest from there.
Seriously injured persons will undoubtedly encounter financial hardships until they’re healed. Most health insurance plans cover medical bills to a certain percentage, but beyond that, it’s the responsibility of the injured person to pay bills. Without income, that becomes a challenge.
Let an expert rideshare accident lawyer handle every phase of your unfortunate accident. We don’t request one penny upfront, because we prefer working hard to secure favorable settlements before asking for money.
