Our Case Results Speak for Themselves

Our law firm’s track record of financial results may instill confidence in your decision to hire us.

Some of our notable results include recoveries of:

  • $6.05 million, which we secured at trial after the insurance company offered a $3 million settlement (which we rejected)
  • $1.258 million, which we secured for a motor vehicle accident victim at trial
  • $1.127 million, which we received through trial after the insurance company did not offer any compensation

We have secured many six-figure settlements and verdicts for our clients, including many recoveries for motor vehicle accident victims. The average cost of an accident involving disabling injuries can reach thousands of dollars, and this does not account for non-economic damages. We may secure substantially more for you, ensuring you are financially stable after your accident.

What Damages Can a Rideshare Accident Case Recover?

Rideshare Accident Lawyer

Recoverable damages are unique to each rideshare accident victim. Your lawyer from our firm will evaluate each of your accident-related damages, which may include:

Medical Bills

Many rideshare accident victims need extensive medical attention, which may include:

  • Ambulance or Medevac transport
  • Emergency medical services
  • Imaging services (X-rays, CT scans, MRIs)
  • Surgery
  • Hospitalization
  • Physical examinations
  • Medical equipment
  • Medications

The more severe your injuries, the more extensive and costly your medical care. If you continue to receive medical treatment, we will monitor your recovery and project future medical expenses.

Professional Damages

If you miss any period of work after your rideshare accident, we will calculate the cost of:

  • Lost paychecks
  • Diminished earning power (which may result when you return to work but earn a lesser income)
  • Lost performance bonuses
  • Missed opportunities for promotions
  • Lost benefits

Our attorneys work with economists when necessary. These economists can help us project the cost of income you will lose in the future, whether you are disabled or will eventually heal and return to work.

Pain and Suffering

There is a non-economic cost to rideshare accidents, and pain and suffering can be a substantial part of those damages.

Some examples of pain and suffering include:

Every accident differs in severity and type, and each victim responds differently to their collision. We work with mental health experts to diagnose, value, and treat our clients’ pain and suffering.

Treatment for Your Pain and Suffering

If you receive medications, therapy, or other treatment for your pain and suffering, we will include the cost of your treatment in your rideshare accident case. If you have yet to find effective treatment, our mental health experts may help you find a personalized treatment course.

Property-Related Expenses

Some common property expenses from rideshare accidents include:

  • Repairs for damaged vehicles
  • Replacement of totaled vehicles
  • Temporary transportation
  • Replacement of damaged property (such as cell phones and clothing)
  • Purchase of a disability-accessible vehicle
  • Medical equipment for disabled accident victims
  • Home upgrades for disabled accident victims

The Flood Law Firm completes comprehensive evaluations of our clients’ damages. We know how to calculate both economic and non-economic damages, including damages you will suffer in the future.

How Much Is My Rideshare Accident Case Worth?

Best Law Firm 2023

The cost of each rideshare accident case varies. You cannot base the value of your case on any prior cases, as yours is completely unique.

Some factors that can determine the value of a rideshare accident case include:

  • Whether your vehicle was involved in the accident
  • What types of injuries you suffered
  • The severity of your injuries
  • The specific symptoms your injuries caused
  • The duration for which you experience your symptoms
  • The unique details of your accident and damages

Our lawyers will determine the exact value of your damages, which will allow us to calculate a fair settlement value. We will demand that liable parties cover all of your accident-related damages, and we will not rest until you receive the compensation you deserve.

Who May Benefit from Hiring a Rideshare Accident Lawyer?

The term rideshare accident is not particularly specific. Rideshare accidents happen for many reasons, and many people may seek compensation after a rideshare collision.

Our clients include:

  • Rideshare passengers whose rideshare drivers cause a collision
  • Rideshare passengers who are in the vehicle when another motorist strikes their rideshare driver’s vehicle
  • Rideshare drivers whose vehicle gets struck by another motorist
  • Motorists whose vehicles get struck by rideshare drivers
  • Pedestrians struck by rideshare drivers

Rideshare drivers can also endanger their passengers. If a passenger suffers an injury during their ride (even if there is no collision) or during pickup or drop off, the rideshare driver may be responsible for injuries and related damages.

What Is Unique (and Challenging) About Rideshare Accident Cases?

There are several challenges unique to rideshare accident cases. With The Flood Law Firm leading your case, you will not have to worry about these challenges.

As your attorneys, we will address:

Who Should Pay for Your Damages

There are many possible ways to secure compensation for a rideshare accident.

We will gather the facts of your case and evaluate your options for seeking compensation, which may include:

  • An insurance claim with your own insurer: We may file an insurance claim with your own insurer, depending on the fault-based laws in your state.
  • An insurance claim with liable motorists’ insurer: Liable parties, possibly including a rideshare driver, may cover the cost of your accident through their insurance policy.
  • An insurance claim with the rideshare company’s insurer: Rideshare companies like Uber provide substantial insurance coverage for drivers, but only under certain conditions. Circumstances permitting, we will file an insurance claim with a rideshare company’s insurer.
  • A lawsuit against liable parties: We may sue those liable for causing your accident. Lawsuits come with several benefits, and we will discuss this option as we build your case.

It is not easy for accident victims to understand their options, let alone evaluate them soundly. Our firm has handled thousands of cases, and we will quickly develop a personalized strategy for your case.

The Difficulty of Settlement Negotiations

Most accident victims are not familiar with negotiating a settlement. Therefore, you may find it immensely challenging to secure fair compensation from liable parties. Our attorneys, on the other hand, have extensive experience securing financial compensation for accident victims.

Our experience may prove a great credit to your case, particularly during the negotiating process.

Any Necessary Trial

If a trial proves to be the right decision for you, the help of a lawyer may prove even more necessary. Completing a trial requires extensive preparation, and experience may be vitally important.

Because our law firm has secured many verdicts at trial, we have the credentials and experience you deserve.

If we face any other challenges while completing your case, The Flood Law Firm will be ready. We are undaunted by even the most challenging cases, and our clients can rest easy knowing that their cases are in our hands.

Steps to Take After a Rideshare Accident

Brian Flood Super Lawyers Badge

As a rideshare accident victim:

  1. Get medical attention as soon as possible: Your health is paramount after a motor vehicle accident. When you receive a complete medical evaluation after your accident, you ensure your safety. You also document your injuries and prove that your accident caused tangible harm.
  2. Speak with a lawyer from The Flood Law Firm: Your financial recovery is also important after a rideshare accident. You can address this priority by hiring an attorney from our firm. We will immediately take over your case and handle it to completion.

When you lean on The Flood Law Firm for help, you allow yourself to focus on your health. We oversee every detail of your case while you spend time with loved ones, receive treatment, and rest.

Insurance Companies May Fight Against Your Case—This Is Where a Lawyer Helps

While many accident victims do not realize it, insurance companies are not always looking out for their best interests.

We will deal with insurance companies for you and, in doing so, protect you from:

  • Attempts to twist your words: Your words can work against you, and insurance companies tend to record the statements you make to them. We will handle as many communications as possible with insurance companies, and this will protect you. If you have to make any recorded statements, we will help you craft them.
  • Lowball settlement offers: Insurance companies may pressure you to accept a lowball settlement offer. We will press for the entire financial recovery you deserve, and we will evaluate all offers you receive.
  • Delays in your case: Insurance companies may delay a claim for several reasons, and we will pressure insurers to handle your claim promptly. You shouldn’t have to wait to receive the compensation you deserve.
  • Rash decisions: We will make sure you make the best decisions for you. We will be your lawyers but also your advisors.

The Flood Law Firm prides itself on being a trustworthy law firm. You deserve the best, and we will work to deliver just that.
