Ed The Law Bull: A Resource For Uber And Lyft Accidents
Being hurt as a passenger in an accident involving a ridesharing company’s driver can be a terrifying experience. Even if injuries are relatively minor, medical care costs can be significant, as well as emotional distress. If you were hurt while using a ridesharing service, where can you turn for compensation?
Ed The Law Bull is a trusted source of legal counsel and advocacy in Houston. Attorney Edward Okwueze has obtained impressive results for countless clients in criminal and personal injury cases. You can count on him to fight for your right to receive compensation for your injuries sustained in any motor vehicle accident, such as a ridesharing accident.
Who Is Liable? Who Should Pay?
As with any car accident case, Mr. Okwueze will investigate the facts to determine how the crash occurred. Accident reconstruction is essential for discovering who was at fault in a collision.
He will also carefully evaluate all available insurance coverage. Legal precedents in Texas have raised questions regarding the liability of Uber and Lyft drivers. A ridesharing company may claim that its driver was an independent contractor. Even if that is the case, the driver may have applicable insurance and assertive negotiations may be necessary. Alternatively, if a crash was caused by a driver of another vehicle, the injured passenger may be able to bring a third-party liability claim against that person. Through a thorough investigation, other resources, such as a passenger’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage may also come to light.
The bottom line for anyone injured in a ridesharing vehicle accident is that it is important to seek reliable legal counsel as soon as possible. Ed The Law Bull can provide the knowledge and representation that you need to hold the right person or company responsible and maximize the recovery of compensation after a ridesharing accident or any accident in a car, SUV or van.
