Rideshare Accident Attorney in New Orleans
Transportation has seen many changes in recent years. Now, people can get to work, meet up with friends, or order food just by tapping on their phones. With rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft, there are always drivers available to chauffeur users to their requested destinations. However, accidents do occur and when you sustain an injury as a result of a rideshare trip, it becomes increasingly difficult for passengers to determine who is liable for the accident. The legal team at Ben Brown Law Group can help you navigate the process and properly file a claim.
When to Hire a Rideshare Attorney
Uber, Lyft, UberEats, Doordash, and other rideshare apps have attracted more drivers as they've become more popular, and they make up a significant percentage of the drivers on the road. While it's an enormous convenience, sometimes in their effort to get to the consumer faster, they are inevitably involved in an auto accident. If you've been involved in an accident with a rideshare driver, it doesn't matter if you were in the vehicle of the rideshare driver or struck by a car driven by a rideshare company. In either instance, you should contact Ben Brown Law Group. We handle cases involving serious physical and cognitive injuries. The reality is that insurance companies often low ball victims. After an accident with a rideshare driver, check for injuries immediately and call the police to report the accident. If you're well enough, take photos of the incident and exchange contact and insurance information with all parties involved.
