Ridesharing services are very popular. Uber and Lyft are available throughout the metropolitan area.
As passengers, you expect your ride in a Lyft or Uber vehicle to be safe. You also expect that Lyft and Uber have investigated their drivers with background checks so that you know you are in a vehicle with a responsible driver.
As drivers of Lyft and uber vehicles, you expect the rideshare company to assist you if you are in an accident or injured as the result of the negligence of another person.
Most of us fail to realize that when you are involved in an accident or crash with another vehicle or truck while in a rideshare vehicle it is a very different experience than a regular motor vehicle accident.
You expect that the rideshare company and or its insurance company will take care of you, pay your doctor bills and lost wages if you are injured. Sadly, that is not always the case. The laws which apply to Rideshare companies are very different that that of a regular car accident. Fortunately the lawyers at Brady Reilly & Cardoso are well versed in these laws and know how to best obtain compensation for both passengers and drivers of rideshare vehicles. Even pedestrians hit by a rideshare vehicle are entitled to compensation.
Although the rideshare companies aggressively challenge these claims, we at Brady Reilly & Cardoso have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, both drivers and passengers of rideshare company vehicles.
We are well versed in the specifics of the laws which include generous insurance requirements for the rideshare vehicles and are able to assist our clients in obtaining the medical treatment and wage compensation they require to as the result of such accidents.
