Uber and Lyft Accidents Injury Lawyer
Ridesharing has quickly become a popular form of transportation across the nation. Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft make it easier and often more economical to get around town. However, as the usage of Uber and Lyft continues to rise, so does the occurrence of automobile accidents involving these rideshare vehicles. These automobile accident claims can involve more than just a pedestrian, passenger or driver. They also involve the rideshare company itself. With multiple parties involved, it is not always easy to determine which party is entitled to compensation. If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving a rideshare vehicle such as Uber or Lyft in Augusta or the Atlanta area, we have a skilled team of attorneys that can help.
At Burnside Law Firm, our lawyers have a keen understanding of the latest and evolving legislation surrounding rideshare accidents, as well as the complex insurance policies that Uber and Lyft carry. Since Uber and Lyft drivers are typically covered by $1 million in both liability and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, you may be entitled to more compensation than you realize if the accident was not your fault. On the other hand, the rideshare company can claim their driver as a contractor instead of an employee to shield itself from liability. These popular rideshare companies don’t always cooperate when injured passengers try to make a claim. Having a skilled attorney by your side becomes a critical step in getting the compensation you deserve.
Our experienced Uber and Lyft accidents injury lawyers in Augusta will work diligently to navigate the laws of liability for your case so that you receive a financial award to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain, personal suffering and more.
