Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Automobile Accidents LawyersWith the advent of Lyft and other ride-sharing services, many people’s lives have been made easier but as Lyft’s popularity has grown, so has the need for many people to get help from a Lyft accident attorney. Lyft and other ride-sharing services use innovative yet fairly new technology to connect people who need drivers, to drivers in the area that are available to give rides. This new technology has given rise to many questions around legal areas governing commercial drivers and people who drive their own cars.

If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident involving a Lyft driver, talking to a knowledgeable Lyft accident attorney Washington DC may help to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety you are going through.

Who Uses Lyft in Washington DC?

People all over the world are using-ride sharing apps. While many of these apps gained popularity in bigger cities in the U.S. you can now find Lyft drivers in small towns and rural, sometimes remote, areas throughout the country.

People use Lyft for a wide variety of reasons. These include but are not limited to:

  • Commuting to or from work
  • To get around while on vacation or away from home
  • To get to the market and run other errands
  • To go out without the risk of drinking alcohol and driving
  • To get children and teenagers to school, appointments, to and from friends houses, etc.
  • To save money by not owning a car that needs to be maintained, repaired, insured, etc.
  • To go places where parking is difficult to find and/or cost prohibitive

As handy as Lyft has become, it has also come with drawbacks. One of these is that as the demand for rides rises, more and more Lyft drivers are in accidents. Lyft was valued at $5.5 billion in 2016 and has many reasons and resources to try to prevent having to pay for accidents their drivers are in. It may be very helpful to seek the advice of the reputable automobile accident lawyer Washington DC relies on if you have been injured in an accident where a Lyft driver in Washington DC was involved.

Who Drives For Lyft?

This is one of the biggest problems that lends itself to why there are so many accidents involving Lyft and other ride-sharing apps’ drivers. It seems like everyone and their mothers are driving Lyft these days. In many cities in the U.S. it seems like there as many ride-sharing drivers as there are private citizens driving their own cars. If you or someone close to you is in the unfortunate situation of having been in an accident where a Lyft driver was involved, talking to a top rated Lyft accident attorney may help you to make an informed decision on whether you have a case that you may be able to seek compensation for.

There are many reasons why people want to drive Lyft. It is also fairly easy to become a Lyft driver provided you have a car and insurance that meets Lyft’s standards. But beyond that, signing on to be a Lyft driver is much less involved than other typical jobs because they do not have the same checks and balances for hiring employees that many companies and small businesses have. While there are many good Lyft drivers out there, there are also lots of bad drivers who now have increased their amount of time on the road because they are driving for Lyft.

When it comes to you and your family’s well-being after an accident where a Lyft driver was involved, talking to the Lyft accident attorneys of Cohen & Cohen in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC may help you to start protecting your rights to compensation for injuries and damages that are the result of the accident.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
