UBER/LYFT ACCIDENT LAWYER

UBER/LYFT ACCIDENT LAWYER

You must be able to show that their negligence directly caused your injuries.

Determining liability after all car accidents is complex. This is especially true when multiple parties are involved, such as in an Uber or Lyft accident. But like most car accidents, liability in an Uber or Lyft accident will generally be based on someone’s negligence. In other words, the driver who caused harm to another individual will typically be held liable for any injuries caused, as well as the resulting damages.

As it relates to Uber or Lyft accidents, negligence is usually some form of careless or reckless behavior. Common examples of Uber/Lyft driver negligence may include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Not paying attention to the road
  • Texting
  • Disobeying traffic laws

MOTORCYCLE AND AUTO COLLISIONS

The single most dangerous situation for motorcyclists occurs when cars are making left-hand turns. These collisions account for 42% of all accidents involving a motorcycle and car. Usually, the turning car strikes the motorcycle when the motorcycle is: going straight through an intersection passing the car, or trying to overtake the car. These types of accidents are common between two cars as well, but the motorcycle's smaller size makes it even less visible to the turning vehicle. Motorcycles that pass cars within the same lane are even more vulnerable --cars don't expect, and are often surprised by, such motorcycle maneuvers. Almost always, a vehicle that hits another vehicle while making a left-hand turn will be found at fault for the accident. However, if the motorcyclist was speeding or in the wrong lane, the motorcyclist may be partly at fault for the accident. In most states, this means the motorcyclist will get less compensation from the driver of the car for injuries and damages caused during an accident. In a few states, the motorcyclists behavior could bar recovery altogether. (To learn more about the law when both drivers are partially at fault. -- MHM Law Group

HEAD INJURY LAWYER

A brain injury is a catastrophic injury from which victims literally can never fully recover. Unlike most body tissues, the brain can’t regenerate its cells. Once cells are damaged or connections between them are broken, the functions they perform are simply lost unless the brain can learn to perform them in new ways. Victims may have permanent problems with their movement, senses, emotions or cognitive abilities, or even changes in personality. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.4 million Americans sustain some kind of traumatic brain injury every year, with about 235,000 requiring hospitalization and 50,000 more dying. Falls and car accidents are the most common causes of brain injuries, but these injuries can be caused by any blow to the head, including sports injuries and gunshot wounds. Thousands more sustain non-traumatic brain injuries because of disease, stroke or oxygen deprivation, sometimes due to medical malpractice. About 5.3 million people in the United States — two percent of our population — need permanent, daily help with everyday tasks because of a brain injury.

UBER/LYFT ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Uber and Lyft are both major companies now worth billions of dollars; as such, they ensure that their drivers are covered by $1 million both in liability and in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. In comparison, many ordinary motorists carry only $15,000 in injury liability. The level of insurance covering Uber and Lyft means that those injured in an accident where they are not at fault may be able to obtain more complete compensation for the medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering following an accident. It’s important, therefore, to have the representation of a skilled Lyft or Uber accident lawyer who can obtain the best results possible. Lalezary Law Firm wants you to know that you may be due significant compensation if you are in one of the following categories: – A motorist or passenger injured in a collision where a ridesharing driver was at fault. – A ridesharing driver injured in an incident where another motorist was at fault. – An injured passenger in a ridesharing vehicle, regardless of which driver is at fault
