Everyone knows that common carries like buses, taxies, and other ride-sharing services can be extremely convenient and cost-effective. A lot of people choose to call a taxi or ride-sharing service rather than drive themselves from location to location. There are a lot of reasons why people choose to use public transportation. While the reasons vary, the result is the same: you’re in a vehicle that you don’t control.
Services like Uber and Lyft allow individuals the option of quick and affordable transportation. Unfortunately, the safety of these rides might be called into question because of poor vehicle maintenance, faulty safety equipment, driver fatigue, driver distraction or inattention, or simply because of an incompetent driver. When people are injured in taxi collision or ridesharing accident, they don’t know all of their rights and options.
Depending on the vehicles involved and the severity of the collision, injuries can range between whiplash to paralysis, and other serious injuries in between. Our personal injury attorneys are experts at negotiating sizable settlements on behalf of clients who’ve been injured by common carriers. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, our trial lawyers will take your case to court and fight for a sizeable verdict.
Because we’re so confident in what we do, we work on a contingency basis. That means we get paid only if you get paid first. And, our fee is just a portion of your total settlement or verdict, so you never have to pay us out of your own pocket.
