Carlsbad Lyft Accident Lawyer
Lyft is one of the most popular rideshare apps in the country. Many people visiting Carlsbad will request a Lyft using their smartphone rather than stand on the curb and hold up their hand for a taxi. Lyft is also increasingly popular with residents who want to avoid public transportation and enjoy the convenience of the rideshare experience.
Unfortunately, a Lyft can get into a crash like any other motor vehicle on the road. You need an experienced lawyer to explain whether you can receive compensation and how to request it. Call Pursley Law Firm to speak with our Carlsbad Lyft accident lawyer today about what happened.
We Help Lyft Passengers
Were you injured while riding in a Lyft? If so, you can bring a claim for compensation against whoever is at fault. That might be your Lyft driver for failing to drive safely, or it could be someone else for hitting your vehicle while you were riding in the back seat.
The identity of the at-fault party matters for purposes of bringing a personal injury claim. Lyft drivers have insurance, so you can make a claim when the driver is at fault. But they might have an incentive to blame someone else on the road. If another driver is at fault, you need to make a claim on their policy.
We have sought money to cover:
- The cost of surgery and other medical care, such as medication, diagnostic tests, and rehabilitation.
- Money lost when you can’t work due to your injuries.
- Damage to any property.
- Pain and suffering, including the physical pain that bodily injuries cause.
- Loss of enjoyment of life and similar intangible losses.
Were You Hit by a Lyft?
Pursley Law Firm can also assist anyone who was struck or run off the road by a Lyft driver. You also deserve compensation when a Lyft driver is reckless or negligent. The amount of compensation you can receive will depend on whether the Lyft driver had a passenger or was simply looking for a fare.
For example, if the driver has a passenger in the car, then their insurance coverage is $1 million. By contrast, if they were simply driving around looking for a ride, then much less insurance is available.
We can help gather evidence for use in your case. You might have rushed to the hospital with serious head or back injuries. Ideally, you will collect as much evidence as you can at the accident scene, such as taking pictures of the cars involved and any road debris.
Your Voice in Negotiations
Lyft is a giant company with more than a million drivers. They also have some of the largest insurance companies in their corner. If you were hurt by a Lyft driver, you deserve experienced legal help. We can make sure your concerns are at the center of the negotiation and that insurance companies take your injuries seriously. We will also demand fair compensation for your pain. Call our law firm to schedule a meeting with our Carlsbad Lyft accident lawyer.
