Need An Injury Attorney Michigan- Uber Accident
Uber and Lyft are becoming a popular way people commute. These companies are like taxi services except they use people’s actual car. Laws are still catching up to these companies and new policies are formed every day. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in these new laws as we require them to stay on top of new developments. If you are in an accident while using Uber or Lyft then you should follow the same steps as you would a regular crash. If you are able, call the police and then seek medical treatment. If you are not able to file a report with the police at the scene, do so as soon as you are able, insurance companies require this.
After you do these things, it’s important that you also find experienced attorneys for counsel in your case. Because there are new laws and policies, current information wins half the battle. Next our attorneys will establish who was at fault, and determine who we file the suit with. If you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle then we need to know if we are going against your driver or another vehicle. This is the most important part of these type of cases because without knowing who caused the accident, your claim will not be honored.
For some reason, passengers using Uber typically don’t wear seatbelts in the back seats. If your Uber driver is at fault, Uber has said they offer up to $1 million in insurance coverage for you the passenger and the driver. This money can be used for a variety of reason such as:
- Medical Bills
- Rehabilitation Bills
- Loss of Wages
- Loss of Job
- Property Damage
- Pain and Suffering
We realize that some damages are permanent and money can’t solve all problems. However, compensation for the damage to your property and medical bills are essential. Especially if these injuries kept you out of work, compensation for your lost wages can be the thing that keeps your family afloat.
In the state of Michigan, all parties involved in the accident are also entitled to no-fault benefits even if you don’t have your own auto-policy. You will need attorneys experienced in negotiating these kinds of claims and knowledgeable of this policy. For residents that don’t know exactly how no-fault benefits work our attorneys can explain in detail. To summarize, no-fault benefits are required by all motorists on Michigan roadways. This means that regardless of who is at fault for the crash, all involved parties are eligible to receive benefits.
