Lyft offers a very convenient means of getting around South Florida without driving. However, it’s important to remember that the risk of being involved in a South Florida Lyft accident is always there when you schedule a ride.
If you’re involved in such an accident, you may sustain injuries that require expensive treatment. Depending on their severity, your injuries might also prevent you from working, which could in turn prevent you from collecting a paycheck. Some injuries are even severe enough to result in a permanent reduction in your quality of life.
A South Florida Lyft accident lawyer can help you secure the compensation to which you’re entitled in these circumstances. At LJ Law Group, you’ll find a personal injury law firm in Florida qualified to offer aggressive representation.
The Complexities of South Florida Lyft Accident Claims
South Florida’s laws regarding whether someone can become a Lyft driver in the state are, fortunately, somewhat stricter than those of several other states. For example, to become a Lyft driver in South Florida, you must first pass a background check.
That doesn’t mean, of course, that South Florida Lyft accidents never occur. If you’re injured in one, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer in South Florida soon after it to begin the process of seeking compensation.
Hiring a South Florida Lyft accident attorney through LJ Law Group is in your best interests for many reasons. First of all, South Florida Lyft accident cases can be very complicated. For instance, a range of factors will potentially determine how you seek compensation. You might seek compensation from your own personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Uninsured Motorist (UIM) insurance, the insurance of your Lyft driver, or Lyft’s insurance policy. You might even have to file a lawsuit to collect what you’re owed.
If you seek compensation from Lyft or your Lyft driver, whether via a lawsuit or not, you must present strong evidence that the driver’s negligence (that is, carelessness) caused the accident. A thorough investigation is necessary, and our Lyft accident law firm in South Florida has the resources to conduct one.
It’s also worth noting that, regardless of who you seek compensation from, an insurance company will go to great lengths to avoid paying what you’re entitled to. This is among the most important reasons to hire a South Florida personal injury lawyer when you’ve been injured in a Lyft accident. You need aggressive representation from someone who understands how to counter an insurer’s defenses. If you try to work with an insurance company yourself, your chances of collecting fair compensation are greatly reduced.
