        Serving Reno County, Sedgwick County, Saline County, Finney County, Ford County, Seward County, and Ellis County

        More and more people are relying on rideshare apps like Lyft and Uber to get them where they need to go. Unfortunately, with the influx of use in rideshare apps there is an increase of accidents on the road. Unsurprisingly, when the accident happens in a rideshare it can cause serious damage and injury. When a rideshare accident happens (because these are not huge multinational companies), the people who work for Uber and Lyft are not considered to be professional drivers. That means that anyone with a license can work there. This often means that the risk of accidents can increase which includes the risk of fatalities and injuries on the road. If you’ve been seriously hurt in a rideshare accident and you need legal help, please get in touch with our Kansas rideshare accident lawyers as soon as you possibly can to set up a free legal consultation.

        Uber and Lyft Accidents

        It’s extremely important for you to get in touch with our Kansas rideshare accident lawyers as soon as possible so that you don’t have to worry about knowing all of the legality regarding Uber or lift. There are unique legal circumstances regarding the insurance companies that work with Uber and lift. Having an experienced lawyer by your side during this time is going to be essential to the success of your case.

        Getting a Settlement for a Rideshare Accident

        This is going to be your one and only opportunity to get compensation for your damages and injuries. Once we’ve settled this case, you cannot go back and ask for an adjustment to the settlement that you were given. Because of this, we are going to need a clear understanding of what your maximum medical recovery should look like. Your maximum medical recovery is where your health will not improve any further.

        We also need to know everything about your personal losses and loss of life quality, along with any possible disability. Once we understand your full medical condition and recovery, then we can determine a fair value of your case.

        Some injuries can be minor, allowing you to recover in a short period of time, while other injuries involve a lifetime of pain and suffering because it leaves you with permanent damage.

        Our Kansas rideshare accident lawyers will help you understand the full extent of your case value based on your medical recovery. Set up a free legal consultation today.

        Rideshare Case Process

        Our Kansas rideshare accident lawyers have the duty of providing our clients with the resources and skills that we have established in our careers to bring them success in their case. Here is the following process you can expect if we take on your case and fight for your justice.

        Investigations 

        Things that are good for us to have include the reports from the police and any accident report that Uber or Lyft might have to file for you. Your Kansas rideshare accident lawyers will conduct their own investigation on the accident as well. It depends on a lot of different factors to be able to come up with the rest of the process of the case. Of course, we’re going to have to find out who the liable party is by determining how the accident happened and how it could have been avoided. We will have to look into the insurance that comes into play. We will be looking at the laws and statutes in Kansas that will affect the way you get compensated. Most importantly, we will consider your medical condition as well.

        Something that is unique to rideshare accidents is the fact that the drivers for these companies are considered independent contractors, which means they don’t have the same rules to abide by that commercial drivers do.

        One of the most common reasons for Uber or Lyft accidents is when someone overworked themselves to make a decent paycheck one night but ended up driving fatigued. Driving tired can be sometimes just as dangerous as driving drunk.

        Because the drivers for these rideshare apps don’t have to go through specific training in order to work for these companies, they often don’t have the same standards for driving and you might end up in the car with someone who has aggressive driving tendencies which can cause accidents.

        Everyone is prone to distracted driving with the influx of handheld mobile devices especially when an Uber or a lift needs to look at directions to get you where you’re going. Because of this distracted driving can be one of the top reasons people get into accidents in a rideshare.

        Again, these drivers don’t have to go through any particular training in order to become employees of Uber or Lyft. All they have to do is pass a background check and have zero accidents on the driver record. That does not ensure that they are safe drivers.

        Insurance Coverages

        In order for us to know what your maximum settlement award could be we need to have a good understanding of the insurance coverages. It will be different for Uber or Lyft then it would be for someone’s private car insurance. It’s important that you have a lawyer who understands these insurance policy differences and knows how to litigate them differently. You have to have the right considerations for these insurance policies in order to come through with a successful settlement award.

        Filing a Claim

        A successful case starts from the beginning when you file. Our Kansas rideshare accident lawyers will make sure that everything is handled in a timely manner and handled properly. The most important thing that you have to understand about beginning a case is that you don’t want to have the idea that the insurance company is your friend because they are not. They are out to make a profit and they are going to try to short you what you deserve so that they don’t have to spend a lot of money on your case. We do not stand for that and we will fight to make sure that they don’t get away with that behavior.

        Collecting Evidence

        When we have evidence from your accident, it can help us secure better results. We have more evidence to prove who the liable party was, and we have evidence to show your medical condition. It’s important for us to be able to collect all of this evidence whether it’s from the scene of the accident or from your physical therapist giving detailed analysis of your condition. All of this can be used to show the rideshare insurance company everything that needs to be considered in your settlement.

        Demanding Results

        When we have evidence of your medical condition and opinions from experts about your injuries, we can build a strong case against the insurance company for the Uber or the Lyft. We need to make sure that you get fully compensated and that means being able to demand better results. The insurance company is going to come forward with a settlement offer and more often than not it is going to be much lower than what we believe your case is worth. Sometimes the beginning of the settlement negotiations is where it ends, and you don’t have to go back and demand more, but we are prepared to do that to make sure that you get the results that you deserve. Our Kansas rideshare accident lawyers understand that this is a back-and-forth to get justice.

        Negotiating 

        We have many years of experience dealing with insurance companies and going through all sorts of negotiations with them to come up with a fair settlement award for you. Even large insurance companies do not intimidate us in the negotiation process. We will always have to negotiate with insurance companies to get a fair result. It doesn’t change because it’s an Uber or a Lyft. When people get hurt, damages can go over $100,000 quickly and we need to make sure that you get everything you deserve.
