We are Your Sarasota, Bradenton, and Tampa Bay Area Uber, Lyft, and Rideshare Attorneys
Companies like Uber and Lyft have become widely popular. According to BusinessofApps.com, 14 million Uber trips are completed everyday around the world. Rideshare companies are now a way of life for people everywhere and offer convenience and affordability. Recently, Uber.com reported gross revenue in Florida at more than $870 million based on a 2017 study by the Economic Development Research Group.
But what happens if you’re involved in an Uber car wreck or Lyft accident? Can you sue a rideshare company if you were involved as a passenger in an accident?
If you were hurt, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. As your Uber and Lyft accident attorneys, we will review the information you give us and help you determine if you have a claim to pursue.
Uber and Lyft drivers are required to have personal auto insurance coverage, and rideshare companies provide their drivers with liability insurance for injured third party accident victims. Whether your rideshare driver was at fault, or even if the accident was caused by another driver, it’s important that your medical bills are paid and that you are compensated for your losses.
Uber and Lyft accidents can create confusion and misinformation. When you come to Legler, Murphy, and Battaglia, LLP after an Uber wreck or Lyft accident, we will navigate through the information you’ve gathered and represent you so you can move forward and recover from your injuries.
The first thing we usually do is answer common questions drivers injured in a rideshare accident have.
At Legler, Murphy, and Battaglia, LLP we are experienced in winning cases for victims of rideshare accidents. We also handle cases involving rideshare drivers convicted of a DUI. We know Uber and Lyft accidents can be complicated, and we use our knowledge to investigate and gather crucial evidence needed to establish liability. We will negotiate with insurance companies and work to pursue your case. If necessary, we will file a lawsuit against the rideshare company on your behalf.
Because we are accustomed to dealing with lawsuits involving rideshare companies, we also handle Uber and Lyft sexual assault personal injury cases.
Uber reported more than 3,000 sexual assaults on their rides in 2018. In 2019, The New York Times reported that Lyft was also sued by women accusing their drivers of sexually assaulting them.
Sexual assault is a crime. It is defined as unwanted sexual contact forced upon a person without consent or who is unable to give consent. Women who are victimized may be alone or intoxicated at the time of the assault and many may wonder if they have a legitimate case for a lawsuit.
At Legler, Murphy, and Battaglia, LLP, we understand this is a difficult time for you, and we will listen and help you determine if you have an Uber or Lyft sexual assault case. You should have been protected and you should never have to go through this, but we will guide you in getting justice. Many of the victims we help need to know how to classify the type of sexual abuse they suffered, and we also help them do this.
If you are a victim of sexual assault from a rideshare driver, you have options and you are not alone.
