El Paso Uber and Lyft Lawyer

Just like any motorist, Uber and Lyft drivers get into accidents. Likewise, rideshare drivers have a responsibility to exercise a certain level of care while driving, such as obeying traffic rules.

If you were injured in an accident in El Paso that involved an Uber or Lyft vehicle, you may feel lost as to how to file an injury claim. You may be wondering whether the driver will be responsible or the rideshare company. Do not worry; an El Paso Uber and Lyft accident lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help. Our team will ask you pertinent legal questions, listen carefully to your story, then establish the next steps to help you.

How Can An Uber and Lyft Accident Attorney Help?

One of our Uber and Lyft accident lawyers can handle your case from beginning to end. We can help by:

Handling All of the Paperwork

Making a claim can be time-consuming and confusing. If you work with us, we can handle all of the paperwork and communications with the liable party. This way, you can rest and recover from your injuries in peace.

Securing Vital Evidence

Another way your lawyer helps you is by checking your medical records and ensuring their accuracy. We make sure the records are correct; otherwise, it could jeopardize your legal case.

Negotiating with Insurers

The injuries you sustain from the accident may not also be apparent, but an insurance company may try to settle quickly. You may also want to settle quickly to address your financial burdens. However, if you settle, you may be leaving money on the table. You do not need to agree to a settlement with an insurance company immediately, either. We may be able to negotiate for a fairer settlement.

Represent You at a Trial

If we cannot secure fair compensation through an insurance claim, we can take legal action on your behalf. We will represent you in a trial and fight for a court-awarded offer.

Potential Damages for Victims of Uber and Lyft Accidents

Just like other personal injury cases, if the driver is at fault, you may be entitled to pursue the liable party for financial damages and losses, which may include:

  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • The cost of medical bills
  • Cost of prescriptions
  • Cost of physical and psychological therapy
  • Salarios perdidos
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Wrongful death in the case of fatalities

These types of damages can help you put your life back together after a rideshare accident in El Paso.

We can help you calculate both your current and future losses to ensure you seek a fair settlement. The last thing we want is for you to suffer further loss as a result of your accident, so we will account for ongoing expenses, such as medical rehabilitation, in your case.

Common Types Of Uber and Lyft Accident Injuries

Uber and Lyft accidents can result in severe injuries or fatalities. We can help you pursue damages if you suffered any of the following injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Quemaduras
  • Latigazo cervical
  • Chipped teeth
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Coma
  • Contusions
  • Lacerations
  • Disfigurement
  • Amputations
  • Organ failure

If you suffered a different kind of injury (or lost a loved one), we can still help you assess your losses and pursue fair compensation.

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Rideshare Accident?

Uber and Lyft accidents differ from other car accidents for a number of reasons. There are multiple insurance companies involved—your insurance company, the driver’s insurance company, and the ridesharing company. Rideshare companies have carefully classified their drivers as independent contractors.

While these companies carry some coverage for drivers who are logged into the app and en route with a passenger, they usually will not cover accidents that occur when the driver is waiting to pick up a passenger or match with a passenger on the app.

If the driver has no insurance of their own, you will not be able to make a claim. Even if they do, some carriers may argue they were working at the time of the accident in an attempt to deny coverage. This can make the legal process overwhelming for victims seeking compensation. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we will advise you regarding the legal process and represent your case for fair compensation.

What to Do When Involved in an Uber Or Lyft Accident

Anyone who is involved in an accident should call the police, who can make a formal report that will be used later as a record for the accident. Even if you didn’t call the police to the scene of the accident, you still have an obligation to report any collision that results in injuries or substantial property damage.

Additionally, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you did not have to go to the emergency room immediately after the collision, do not assume that you do not have injuries. Some injuries do not show symptoms for days or weeks after an accident, but they can lead to ongoing medical conditions, such as chronic widespread pain.

You will only make your injuries worse if you fail to see a doctor or follow through with a prescribed treatment plan. Furthermore, medical documentation can help link your injuries to the accident and prevent an insurer from claiming you worsened your condition so they can undervalue or deny your claim.

  • Salarios perdidos
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Wrongful death in the case of fatalities

These types of damages can help you put your life back together after a rideshare accident in El Paso.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire An Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyer in El Paso?

Another way we help victims of Uber and Lyft accidents is by taking cases on a contingency-fee basis. This means we will not charge you any out-of-pocket expenses to get started on your case. We also do not collect payment for our services unless we are successful in winning compensation for you.

You have nothing to lose by taking advantage of these opportunities to acquire risk-free legal representation.
