If you or a loved one was injured in a collision with a rideshare driver, our team can help you fight to prove the cause, effects, and subsequent costs of the accident. You do not have to seek financial compensation from a rideshare company on your own.

Our Team Can Help You Navigate the Claims Process
Uber and Lyft’s insurance policies provide details on when their drivers are covered and the financial limits of their coverage. After an accident involving a rideshare driver, it can be challenging to determine whether to seek compensation from the driver or the company. Our legal team will help you:
- Identify and pursue the correct at-fault party
- Understand the steps involved in your case
- Read and review all applicable insurance policies
Our team also helps you understand and accurately assess the current and future costs of the accident. We focus on your case so you can focus on healing. We also understand the importance of being able to contact a team member with questions and concerns, so in addition to phone and email contact, we make sure you get a unique-to-you text number to foster around-the-clock communication.
Negotiating a Favorable Settlement
The settlement negotiation process is complex and can involve many rounds of negotiation before an agreement is reached. Our case evaluation team is committed to your financial recovery. When we help you negotiate with the at-fault driver or the rideshare company, our team will:
- Handle all insurance company communication
- Obtain, complete, and submit insurance forms
- Compile, organize, and present your evidence
The guidance and direction of an Uber and Lyft accident lawyer can help you avoid accepting a speedy settlement offer that does not take all your expenses and losses into account.

Our team will explain the steps involved in getting the settlement you deserve in your College Park case with a thorough and accurate valuation.

Damages You Could Collect
The financial damages the law allows you to request after a car accident includes the cost of treating your injuries and the expenses and losses that stem from the accident. Your recoverable damages may include:
- All injury-related medical bills
- All injury-related loss of income
- Property damage or destruction
- Lasting disability or disfigurement
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
The team at the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow will help you carefully appraise your monetary damages and ensure your case is not undervalued or underpaid. We can also help you avoid valuing your case too low by ensuring all expenses are documented prior to starting the negotiation process.
Establishing Your Right to Recover Damages
To prove you are entitled to financial compensation, our team will need to establish the at-fault party’s responsibility to provide you with a duty of care. We will also need to show evidence of their breach of that duty and connect this to your injuries. Our next goal is to prove the value of your damages. We do that using your:
- Car accident report
- Medical bills
- Salary history
- Property repair bills
Our team will collect these and other documents from their various sources. Doing so can be complex and time-consuming because medical bills alone can come from multiple physicians and facilities. We also order the car accident report for you and do as much of the legwork as possible so you can focus on getting better.
How Much Time You Have to Seek Compensation
When you decide to pursue the liable party after an accident, you have a limited time to file a lawsuit. The outcome of the accident defines your filing deadline as follows:
- The personal injury statute of limitations defined by Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101 generally gives you three years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations defined by Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904 generally gives you three years from the date of your loved one’s demise to file your lawsuit.
When you contact our team immediately, it gives us more time to ensure compliance with the relevant filing deadline. Early contact with our team also gives us time to investigate the accident, locate and interview witnesses, search for photos and video footage, and build a strong and supportive evidence file.
