Throughout Fort Lauderdale, many residents and visitors take advantage of ridesharing services. Unfortunately, some of those who use ridesharing services will be hurt in auto accidents. Motorists on the roads of Broward County, where Fort Lauderdale is the County Seat, could also face serious injuries or even fatalities in auto accidents caused by motorists driving for ride sharing companies. If you are the victim of an accident with a ridesharing driver, you need to know your legal rights. These types of auto accident cases can be more complicated than typical car accident claims, so you need a Fort Lauderdale rideshare accident attorney with a history of successful claims. Steinger, Greene & Feiner is here to help. Since 1997, our legal team has been committed to representing the rights of victims. We have recovered over $1 billion for clients, and we can put our legal knowledge to work for you after a ridesharing accident in Fort Lauderdale. Give us a call today to find out the specifics of the help that we can provide and to get answers to questions you may have, including:
Responsibility for a rideshare accident may lie with the driver of the rideshare vehicle, if that driver was negligent. If another driver caused the crash with the ridesharing car, the other driver could be held accountable for crash losses. When the driver of a rideshare vehicle has caused harm, insurance coverage to compensate victims may be available through a substantial insurance policy offered by the rideshare company. While companies have a history of using different techniques to try to avoid becoming responsible for driver-caused collisions, Uber and Lyft do make insurance available now. Unfortunately, it can still be a challenge for victims to get insurers to pay the full amount necessary to provide fair compensation for losses.
Steinger, Greene & Feiner can negotiate on your behalf with insurers to help you fight for a fair out-of-court settlement that will compensate you for losses caused by a rideshare accident. Arriving at a settlement means you won't have to go to trial to prove your right to compensation and to prove the extent of loss. Sometimes, however, no settlement agreement is reached and you will need to sue in court. If your accident happened in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County Courts preside over small claims, while Circuit Courts preside over cases where a victim alleges he sustained more substantial damages. Steinger, Greene & Feiner can assist you in determining the appropriate state or federal court in which to sue, and can help you to make compelling arguments to present to the court to maximize your chances of obtaining compensation.
A fair settlement is not what you can expect to receive from the insurance company. Their goal is to reduce payouts on claims so they can remain highly profitable. Our proven and committed legal team understands the tactics these companies regularly use to pay claimants as little as possible. We routinely battle their schemes in and out of court, and have developed effective methods for doing so.
With a legal team of more than 30 lawyers and more than 140 staff, including investigators and other assistants, we have the resources needed to get the job done efficiently. With our No-Fee Guarantee, you can bring your personal injury case to us with confidence, knowing you will pay nothing until we recover the compensation you deserve. Throughout the entire case, we will be by your side, providing the guidance you need.
My experience with Steinger, Greene & Feiner was a very positive experience. They addressed my needs right away. I didn’t expect to get a lawyer as quickly as I did. I got a phone call the next day and it was Steve Sheinfeld. He was very professional and courteous. I signed up because I had confidence right away… Steve was willing to walk through this journey with me, where I could walk away feeling a lot better.
