A revolution of social media has recently come to promote new technologies including phone apps like Lyft and Uber. These apps allow private drivers (not employed directly by either Company) to be able to transport people and offer food delivery service using the same mobile app. What happens if you are a passenger in an accident while using any of these services? Who pays for the injuries suffered? In the event that the driver does not have an insurance policy, or it is too low to pay for all damages, companies like Uber and Lyft have secondary policies for back up in these cases. In order to receive compensation for injuries suffered, it’s important to hire a lawyer who is experienced and is a subject matter expert.
In the event of an accident, it’s important to stay calm and contact the police immediately; and of course, request medical assistance as needed. The Ward Law Group has a team always willing to help answer any questions and provide legal representation as needed.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
