What Happens After A Rideshare Accident?
Rideshare apps have become a way of the future. Whether you are heading to a friend’s house or running some errands, most of us don’t think twice about using Uber or Lyft.
Just like us, though, these drivers are susceptible to accidents. When that happens, Cheney Galluzzi & Howard, LLC, can help. We have worked with clients throughout Colorado who need help navigating the legal system.
Helping You Get Back On Your Feet
Rideshare companies have insurance specifically for situations like these. If you are in the middle of a ride, you are covered by their policy.
However, these cases aren’t always that simple. Determining negligence plays a huge part. Whether your Uber of Lyft driver was at-fault or someone else caused the accident, many factors go into how much compensation you can receive. As your representation, we will do everything we can to recover the maximum amount of damages.
How Long Do I Have To Pursue Legal Action?
In Colorado, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim. While this may seem like a long time, it is important to act quickly.
The fact of the matter is that you may be suffering tremendously. The negligent party must be held accountable for their actions, even if it is the rideshare driver themself. Furthermore, it encourages drivers to be more alert since they know there are consequences. We are here to discuss your options and provide you with an honest assessment.
