Experienced Legal Help After A Rideshare Accident
Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have become a staple of the transportation industry. Their convenience and pricing model make them an easy choice for many people across Pennsylvania. And they’re often a wise choice – for example, when going out for drinks with friends and not having a designated driver. Rideshares prevent many drunk driving accidents.
But they too get into accidents. After a rideshare accident, you may feel incredibly overwhelmed with trying to sort out the legal and insurance ramifications. We can help.
At The Waffenschmidt Law Firm, LLC, our personal injury lawyer has more than three decades of experience helping the injured get compensation. Our team can help you navigate the legal challenges to obtain the financial recovery you deserve.
How Rideshare Accidents Differ From Other Car Accident Cases
After a rideshare accident, you may have multiple options for seeking insurance compensation. You could file a claim with your own auto insurance if you have no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.
You might also be dealing with the rideshare company and their commercial insurance policy, particularly if your damages exceed your own policy limits. Typically, policies for Uber and Lyft have caps of $1 million per accident.
Additionally, if someone else’s negligence contributed to the accident, you might also have a personal injury claim against them and their insurance.
As you can see, there are many possible avenues for pursuing compensation. Our firm can help you determine the most strategic angle for moving forward. If you run into roadblocks, you will want an experienced lawyer by your side. We can protect you from unnecessary delays and denials.
