When you’ve been in an accident, after getting past your immediate injuries and necessary repairs, the stress, and chaos can linger for some time while securing compensation for your injuries and damages. Being in an accident with a rideshare driver can be especially difficult, given that you may not be dealing with just the opposing driver, but their employer, and their insurance companies and lawyers.
Having a lawyer on your side, as we’ll discuss, can help to ensure that you make the most of your case and receive the best settlement possible. A lawyer from The Ride App Attorneys can help you explore options on your case and help with the entire process.
When you’ve been in an accident, the first thing on your mind is likely getting your vehicle repairs, getting any medical treatment necessary, and moving on. The desire to get past the accident can lead to you viewing initial settlement offers from the driver’s insurance company and/or insurer. Long-term damages from your accident may be present that are not immediately recognized, and accepting a settlement early can put you at a disadvantage, as future damages can no longer be collected.
Commercial rideshare drivers working for Opoli, Wingz, or Lyft often have additional insurance coverage by the rideshare corporation, and corporate insurance companies often have a team of legal advisors behind them. An attorney on your side helps to equalize things. Touch base with an attorney at The Ride App Attorneys for more information about how we can help on your case.
When selecting a lawyer, it is important to consider their areas of practice, as that is where they will have the most experience. The lawyers working for the insurance companies handle those kinds of cases full-time, and representing yourself against professionally trained and highly experienced attorneys will naturally put you at a disadvantage.
You should always seek out an attorney in your area who has experience in the area of your case, including rideshare crashes. Additionally, it is important to feel comfortable with your attorney, as you will be interacting with them a considerable amount during the preparation of your case.
