If you have been hurt in a rideshare car accident, it is important to reach out to an experienced lawyer for help. These cases can be incredibly complex, especially as the legal landscape in California continues to evolve. In too many cases, this complexity makes it easy for Uber, Lyft, and powerful insurance companies to deny innocent passengers and motorists the compensation they are rightfully owed.
More often than not, an accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver is a headache to address. This has been true since rideshare apps went live in 2009, mainly because these accidents typically involve three parties at a minimum. And now that California Assembly Bill 5 has gone into effect, making Uber and Lyft drivers official employees of the companies, the legal situation has gotten even more confusing.
With a skilled rideshare attorney on your side, you will be prepared to stand up to insurance providers and rideshare companies who may attempt to lowball or even deny your settlement claim. A lawyer will know what compensation you deserve after a rideshare accident and will be able to negotiate with insurance companies to pursue that settlement on your behalf. If necessary, they will also be ready to litigate aggressively in court to get your money.
In the aftermath of a complicated rideshare accident, the last thing anyone wants to worry about is paying any additional costs. At OnderLaw, LLC, we understand that. We also understand that having a good attorney is key to recovering fair compensation in these cases – and we’re determined to make our services accessible to all accident victims who need them.
That’s why we work on a contingency-fee basis. In other words, under our policy, you won’t have to pay us if we don’t win your case. Not only will there be no fees upfront, but there also won’t be any at all unless or until you receive the compensation you deserve.
Not every attorney can afford to represent clients on a contingency-fee basis. We are fortunate to have this financial flexibility because we are confident in the odds of every case we take on and because we have a wealth of experience and resources to help power each case. OnderLaw, LLC has recovered more than $3 billion total in settlements for past clients and has received recognition from Super Lawyers, Top 100 National Trial Lawyers, and the American Trial Lawyers Association. If we represent you in your rideshare accident case, you can rest assured that we will put our tried-and-true skills to work, whether it be in the courtroom or in negotiations with your insurance provider.
Part of what makes rideshare accidents so complex is that they often involve three or more parties. It is common for a single crash to implicate the Uber/Lyft driver, their passengers, the other driver, and the rideshare company itself. Some accidents may be even messier, such as a multi-car pile-up or a crash involving a commercial bus or truck.
No matter your role in the accident, we are prepared to hear your story and offer any assistance we can. We handle rideshare accident cases for a wide range of clients, including:
