If you or a family member suffered a rideshare accident, you may be wondering how you’ll recover your due damages. Our personal injury firm can help, such as by negotiating with the insurance company for damages they may not typically compensate for. We may even be able to sue for your damages, and we can help in other ways, too.
In a consultation, we’ll go over your case with you and what we can do for you. We’ll also explain everything you need to know about working with your Delray Beach Uber and Lyft rideshare accident lawyer.
How Do I Recover Damages For A Delray Beach Rideshare Accident?
As a motorist or a rideshare passenger involved in a rideshare accident, you can recover damages through insurance or litigation (suing the rideshare driver or rideshare company). If you go through insurance, you’ll likely recover most of your financial damages. If you go through litigation, you can seek more financial damages, as well as your physical and other intangible damages, like pain and suffering.
However, a car accident lawyer from our firm may be able to negotiate with the insurer (or judge) for more damages. Your lawyer can help negotiate fair compensation.
Together, you and your lawyer will discuss whether to file an insurance claim or a lawsuit and how to negotiate for your damages.
How Exactly Can A Delray Beach Uber & Lyft Rideshare Accident Lawyer Help?
When your lawyer takes over your case from you, your lawyer will take on everything involved in your case so you’ll be able to focus on your health and your family. You won’t have to worry at all about legal matters. You also won’t have to worry as much about financial matters since your lawyer will help you in other ways. Your lawyer will:
Work For You In An Affordable Contingency-Fee Arrangement
In this arrangement, you won’t have to pay any upfront or ongoing legal fees for your lawyer’s services. Instead, you’ll simply pay your lawyer out of your case payout. This arrangement should be very affordable for you.
Determine Your Due Compensation
Depending on whether you file a claim or suit for your damages, your lawyer may be able to pursue some or many of the following damages for you:
- Vehicle repair/replacement expenses
- Medical and related expenses
- Lost income and employment benefits
- Loss in your income-earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Impairment or disability
- Mental suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death damages if you lost a loved one in the accident
Your lawyer will also pursue fair amounts for your damages, including your intangible damages, like your pain and suffering.
Establish Liability In Your Case
To prove the other party’s liability for your damages, your lawyer will seek out and show the insurer (or judge) evidence that the rideshare driver or company was negligent in some way. This evidence could include traffic camera footage, vehicle data recorder information, rideshare app data, and other evidence. If your lawyer takes your case to court, your lawyer can seek out additional corroborating evidence, such as testimony from a car accident reconstructionist.
Next, your lawyer will show that each of the elements of negligence applies in your case. These elements include a duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages.
Resolve Your Case
In negotiations, your lawyer will demand your due compensation from the insurer (or judge). If the insurer doesn’t cooperate, your lawyer may be able to threaten to sue them for your damages. If this doesn’t persuade them, your lawyer will sue and take your case to court.
Why Should I Hire My Delray Beach Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyer Soon?
Insurance companies, including Uber and Lyft’s insurers, like to prolong the claims process. It can help them put pressure on a claimant so the claimant may become desperate for compensation and take the first settlement offer. In some cases, an insurer may delay a claim for many months.
By hiring your lawyer soon, you’ll give your lawyer more time to meet the deadline for a potential lawsuit, if necessary. Even if the insurer prolongs the claims process, your lawyer will still be prepared to file a lawsuit.
The lawsuit-filing deadline is explained in Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), which generally allows you four years to file your personal injury lawsuit.
