A Lyft accident lawyer is rarely idle these days. Lyft and a new wave of other ridesharing companies have made life easier for urban and suburban residents in Louisiana and nationwide. However, cars are still cars and drivers are still drivers; accidents involving these vehicles happen all the time. Even so, the job of a Lyft accident attorney here at the Russell Law Firm is somewhat different from those involved in other types of cases.
What a Good Lyft Accident Attorney Knows
Lyft is now ubiquitous in most American cities and it remains a rapidly growing billion dollar public company. As such, it has enormous assets to protect. Lyft ensures that its drivers are covered for $1 million in liability. At the same time, Lyft and its insurers nevertheless want to pay out as little as possible- that’s where the Russell Law Firm enters the picture.
The large amount of insurance carried by Lyft drivers is many times what a typical motorist without much property may carry. This makes a significant difference for accident victims in the following categories:
- Lyft passengers who were harmed in an accident where the rideshare driver is at fault.
- Drivers of other cars and their passengers who were injured in an accident caused by an on-duty Lyft driver.
- Pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists who have been harmed in a collision involving an on-duty Lyft driver.
- On-duty Lyft drivers injured in an accident where a second party is at fault.
If you or a loved one falls into one of these categories, then the odds of obtaining a truly fair judgment or settlement increase significantly. However, Lyft and its insurers employ highly skilled lawyers and adjusters who are paid to keep payments to a minimum. As your Lyft car accident lawyer, the Russell Law Firm is here to be your advocate in obtaining a settlement that is genuinely commensurate with the loss of income, expense, and heartache you have experienced as the result of another driver’s negligence.
Have a Good Case? You Can Afford an Outstanding Lyft Accident Attorney!
Most people understand that lawyers can be extremely useful when it comes to protecting their rights, but they often wrongly assume they can’t afford good representation. At the Russell Law Firm, we work on a contingency fee basis on personal injury cases. What that means is that our pay only comes after we have produced a successful outcome for our client in the form of a settlement or a court’s judgment. Until that point, we don’t earn a penny.
Our years of experience in this area of the law has made us extremely good judges of which cases are likely to produce the kinds of outcomes that make legal representation worthwhile. Once we take your case, we have a great deal of confidence in our ability to produce a beneficial outcome, and that’s good for everyone involved.
Free, No Obligation Consultations
We offer free consultations with no obligations to every prospective personal injury client we meet with. The Russell Law Firm understands that the aftermath of an accident involving a Lyft driver, or anyone else, is one of the most stressful times in the lives of most victims, and we don’t want to add to it. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident where a Lyft driver or some other party may be involved, we encourage you to contact us sooner rather than later.
A Lyft Car Accident Lawyer Who Understands
People become lawyers for a lot of reasons, but our chief attorney was inspired by his personal experience of what happens when accident victims don’t have the benefit of a knowledgeable advocate on their side. As a sophomore in college, Danny Russell was involved in a car accident. While the physical injuries weren’t overly serious, there were medical expenses and his car was totaled. He accepted what seemed to him like a generous settlement from an insurance adjuster. Not long after, however, he found out that the actual amount he should have been entitled to was a great deal larger.
The Russell Law Firm’s personal injury practice begins at a place of understanding and sympathy for the concerns and pressures faced by accident victims or their survivors. We are here to make sure that our clients are treated with respect and fully compensated for their financial hardship as well as their pain and suffering.
