When you are unsure of which law firm should take on your Tempe rideshare accident claim, here are a few reasons to go with Torgenson Law:
According to data released by Forbes, rideshare services including Uber and Lyft provide approximately 6.9 billion trips annually – and these numbers are expected to rise. This also means that the number of Tempe rideshare accidents are likely to increase.
One of the most important ways victims of rideshare accidents go about recovering compensation for their damages is by filing a claim with the insurance company. Arizona is a fault state for car accidents and insurance purposes. Here, you will file a claim with the liable party’s insurance provider.
For Uber and Lyft accident claims, this may mean that you file a claim with Uber or Lyft’s auto insurance. However, these types of cases can become complicated quickly. This is, in part, because Uber and Lyft auto insurance policies are only in effect during specific times. These include:
If the rideshare accident occurred outside these times, you may not have the right to pursue an injury settlement through Uber or Lyft’s auto insurance provider. Instead, you may need to file a claim with the driver’s personal auto insurance company. For more information, discuss your specific situation with an experienced Tempe attorney.
The rideshare accident claims process can quickly become complex. While you focus on recovering from your injuries, your Tempe rideshare accident attorneys at Torgenson Law can get started on your case and handle the insurance company, so you can be awarded the compensation that is rightfully yours.
