Why You Should Hire an Uber or Lyft Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles
Uber and Lyft have drastically changed how people get around in Los Angeles. Previously, you used to fight traffic, especially during those rush hours, but now you can relax at the back seat while being driven to your destination. But, taking an Uber or Lyft doesn’t necessarily guarantee that you’ll reach your destination safely. Most Uber and Lyft drivers aren’t professionals, and their vehicles are still driven on LA’s jam-packed roads. Accidents in LA happen every day, and it might come as a surprise to you, but many of them involve Ubers and Lyfts.
What to expect when you hire an Uber or Lyft accident lawyer?
No one wants to get involved in a road accident. If, unfortunately, you happen to get yourself into one, primarily an Uber or Lyft accident, you have the right to recover compensation for your injuries but, getting the money back you rightly deserve after the accident can be very difficult. Most insurance companies won’t pay you a dime and will do anything in their power to let you walk out empty-handed.
At Legal Leaf, our attorneys will take care of all aspects of your case so that you can focus on getting better.
Here’s what you can expect when you hire our uber law attorney in Los Angeles.
Protection from Devious Insurance Companies
First thing first, you need to understand that insurance companies aren’t on your side. Although Uber and Lyft are required to provide coverage if an accident occurs, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the company will be willing to pay. Some insurers might even refuse to approve your claim without so much as a preliminary investigation. While others might approach you after the accident and trick you into accepting a low offer.
Our Uber accident lawyers in Los Angeles know all the tricks in the book insurers will use to limit the payouts. We’ll protect your rights and demand that these companies reimburse a reasonable and fair settlement offer.
Assessing cause and liability
While this may seem the first thing a person would do, but determining the causes of your accident is incredibly important. Our attorneys will minutely investigate your accident, along with determining why it happened. This doesn’t only enable us to gather information and evidence in your case, but it’ll also identify every possible at-fault party. It is important to remember that anyone who contributes to an accident could be liable for damages. We make sure to demand compensation from any and everyone who has caused you harm.
Accurately evaluating Your Case
There is only one way to recover the compensation that you rightly deserve, and it is by making sure that your case is valued properly in its entirety. For uncovering every detail of your case, a thorough investigation of your accident is required. Our capable attorneys will consider the extent of the accident and the injuries which you’ve suffered. We work closely with professionals in many related fields who can assist us in determining the proper value of each specific injury.
Once we’ve evaluated and assessed your damages, our next step will be to approach insurance companies or defendants, if any, to negotiate a settlement. We’ll also demand compensation for any damages which can include:
· Lost wages
· Pain and suffering
· Medical bills
· Property damage
· Emotional trauma
· Loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
If you don’t feel that you’re adequately compensated for your loss, then don’t hesitate to contact us, as we will make sure that you get the best compensation for the damages you’ve suffered. If the insurance company still doesn’t give us what we need, we won’t think twice about taking your case to court. We will also fight to make sure that your case is valued appropriately and that you receive the compensation you deserve.
