If you’re looking for an Uber accident attorney, the Russell Law Firm has helped many others like you. Ridesharing is now a fact of life in Louisiana and the rest of the nation. It has improved transportation for many of us, but that’s no consolation if you, or someone you love, is dealing with an injury as a result of an Uber accident.
Are Uber Accidents Different from Other Collisions?
Yes. As a rapidly growing corporation worth billions, Uber has enormous assets to protect. Therefore, each Uber driver is required to carry $1 million dollars’ worth of insurance for bodily harm and property damage. This is a great deal larger than the minimum insurance many ordinary drivers carry. Thus, Uber may pay out much larger sums to several types of victims through its insurers when compared to individuals harmed in other types of collisions. These include:
- Pedestrians who have been hit by Uber vehicles.
- Passengers in working Uber cars who were injured in an accident that was the fault of the driver.
- Drivers of other vehicles and their passengers hurt in accidents where an on-duty Uber driver was at fault.
- On-duty Uber drivers hurt in accidents where another driver is at fault.
Unfortunately, large companies like Uber and its insurers are unlikely to provide a truly fair payout without a fight. Insurers for deep-pocketed corporations like Uber typically have a strong legal team and highly disciplined insurance adjusters whose job is to ensure that payouts are kept to a minimum. Anyone hurt in a ridesharing accident will likely find themselves offered settlements that may seem large to the uninitiated, but which aren’t sufficient to cover damages to persons and property. That’s why victims and their families need a skilled and experienced Uber accident lawyer fighting for their rights. Danny Russell and his team of litigators at the Russell Law Firm are top tier professionals who will doggedly pursue your case to the fullest extent of the law.
Yes, You Can Afford an Uber Accident Lawyer
People who are involved in accidents where major companies like Uber are involved are likely to be intimidated into thinking that they are unable to afford legal counsel with the skills to take on highly paid corporate lawyers. The Danny Russell Law Firm wants you to understand that, no matter how difficult your current financial situation, anyone with a strong case is likely to have access to skilled legal counsel.
That’s because we work on a contingency fee basis. This means we only receive payment for our work once a case has been resolved successfully and money has been paid to our client. The fact of the matter is that most people have a hard time affording legal counsel under standard retainer agreements, and that becomes all the more true during the financial duress of an injury or wrongful death. Contingency fees mean that clients don’t have to pay high retainer fees. This also motivates attorneys to only accept cases that they are confident will yield a good outcome. That prevents lost time and undue heartache for everyone involved.
Prospective clients should also know that the Russell Law Firm offers free, no-obligation consultations for prospective clients. We make our living by providing outstanding results for our clients, and that’s it.
Personal Injury Law with a Personal Touch
Other personal injury attorneys have locked horns with insurance companies, but very few have the same kind of personal insight on how they lure people into accepting substandard settlements as our head lawyer. As a young man who had recently had his car totaled in a traumatic accident, Danny accepted what he thought was a generous offer from an insurance adjuster. After learning that he had actually been entitled to a great deal more, Danny developed a passion for the law. Today, it’s his mission as the head of the Russell Law Firm to ensure that his clients never suffer from the same indignity he did.
