Ride-sharing through companies such as Uber or Lyft is one of the fasting-growing ways to travel in Ohio. In the Columbus metro area, many people choose to employ the services of these companies to get to work or meet their various transportation needs. It can be convenient and easy - until an accident occurs and you must deal with injuries and medical bills.
If you were hurt in an accident while riding in a ride-sharing vehicle, you could have a valid reason to seek compensation through a civil claim. The personal injury lawyer at The Keating Firm LTD., understands the complex nature of these types of claims, and he will work diligently to pursue all sources of compensation that may be available to you.
It can be difficult to determine who may be to blame for an accident that occurs in a ride-sharing vehicle. One of the first things we will do is to carefully evaluate your case and determine who could be liable for your injuries. Companies such as Uber and Lyft may employ drivers who are inexperienced, and the company itself could be liable for insufficient hiring and vetting practices.
In addition to the ride-sharing company, the driver may also share liability for your accident. We will tenaciously pursue the appropriate amount of compensation from all responsible parties. Determining liability is not always easy, and ride-sharing companies often have large and powerful insurance companies on their side. Complex cases do not intimidate us, and we will employ our extensive experience to pursue a positive outcome for you.
We understand it is not easy to deal with the aftermath of a car accident. If you are the victim of the negligent or reckless actions of an Uber or Lyft driver, you have the right to seek support and pursue an appropriate avenue for legal recourse.
