Steinger, Greene & Feiner is the firm to turn to. You can give us a call to find out about the personalized help we can provide to you and to get answers to questions you have about rideshare accidents, including:
Rideshare accident cases are more complicated than other auto accident claims because it is not just the driver who caused the crash and the victims involved; the rideshare company must also be considered. Rideshare companies have long fought against assuming responsibility for injuries caused by drivers, and have classified drivers as independent contractors and not employees to protect the companies from accountability. After initially requiring drivers of rideshare vehicles to make claims with their personal auto insurance policies --- which largely offered no coverage for vehicles used commercially --- rideshare companies now make large liability insurance policies available.
While these policies can ensure victims of accidents are covered in full for losses, actually getting claims paid remains difficult, as does fighting for full and fair compensation. Steinger, Greene & Feiner is here to help. We have represented many clients injured in rideshare collisions in Okeechobee, and we know how to make the legal system work for you.
The Okeechobee County circuit court presides over civil cases, and victims of rideshare accidents in Okeechobee can pursue civil claims to get compensation for losses. Cases are typically handled in state court, although federal claims could be possible under limited circumstances. Steinger, Greene & Feiner knows how to present evidence within court proceedings to demonstrate your right to compensation if you are the victim of a rideshare accident.
Our legal team is also made up of skilled negotiators who can help you to agree to a settlement offer after a rideshare accident. If you can settle your case, you can avoid the stress and time a trial requires and get compensation sooner so you can move on with your life.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
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.
