Find Out What Your Accident Case is Worth
No two car accidents are exactly alike or result in identical financial damages. As such, it can be challenging to understand what you are entitled to in the aftermath of a collision. It can be equally challenging to accurately assign a monetary value to your damages.
Whether you were injured in the accident as a passenger of the rideshare vehicle, a driver or passenger in another involved vehicle, or a pedestrian, our team will help you fight for the damages you are entitled to due to the at-fault driver’s negligence.
Types of Recoverable Damages
After an accident, you could qualify to request compensation for two types of financial damages—economic and non-economic. Economic damages cover your actual monetary expenses and losses, while non-economic damages cover the accident’s mental and emotional impact on you and your family.
A team member will familiarize you with both types of damages and help you understand what you qualify to seek. Types of economic damages include:
- Current and future medical care
- Current and future income loss
- Property damage or total loss
- In-home medical assistance
Non-economic damages can cover:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional trauma
In addition, if a family member is fatally injured, you could recover the reasonable expenses of their funeral and burial. Our team wants to help you during this stressful time. We can take the receipts, estimates, and other paperwork that document your expenses and use them to support your right to recovery.

We also Decipher Rideshare Insurance Policies
Rideshare companies have insurance in place to protect their drivers and passengers in the event of an accident. Uber’s insurance policy offers varying levels of protection depending on the driver’s status at the time of the accident. Similarly, Lyft’s policy offers varying coverage depending on whether or not the driver is signed into the app, on the way to a passenger, or actively transporting one.
Our team members will read and review these complex policies for you to fight for the financial compensation you are entitled to due to negligence. While we concentrate on clarifying the rideshare company’s insurance information, you can concentrate on getting better.
