Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Rideshare Law Firm VirginiaEven though app based ride share services such as Uber and Lyft have made it more convenient and efficient for people to get around Virginia and the surrounding states, with the increase in these services’ popularity, so has come the need for a rideshare law firm Virginia community members can rely on.

There are many laws in the United States that assure consumers in the U.S. that when they pay for a product or a service, doing this is not going to put them in harm’s way. While many rideshare drivers obey the rules of the road, many of them do not. Many drivers do dangerous and illegal maneuvers for a variety of reasons that are often the result of some sort of negligence on their part. The results of this negligence can leave rideshare passengers injured and in pain, and sometimes this causes death among passengers and/or other people involved in the accident.

Victim’s Rights

People who are injured because of another person or parties’ negligence, malice or recklessness, should not have to pay for their injuries. The injury and the pain and complications that come with an injury, are already often more than the victim can comfortably manage. For an innocent victim and/or their family to then have to pay for the financial burdens their injury caused even though it is no fault of their own- can be overwhelming and in many ways, offensive.

When someone is injured because of someone else’s or a group of people’s negligence, the person or people who caused or contributed to the injury may be liable for expenses that come about as a result of the victim’s injuries. A victim of this and/or their family may be able to file a personal injury claim against the party or parties who caused or contributed to the injury. Many people find this is easier and more efficient to do with the help of a rideshare law firm Virginia residents recommend.

Rights to Compensation

The following are some of the more common forms of compensation that personal injury victims and/or their families may have the right to seek compensation for:

  • Emergency services
  • Medical bills, current and projected
  • Hospitalizations
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of childcare and/or household management
  • Loss of health benefits
  • Loss of abilities and quality of life
  • Funeral and burial or cremation expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of retirement benefits

The above is not an exhaustive list. The information in this article is not intended to be legal advice

Ridesharing Related Injuries

Even though ridesharing companies now do background checks on their driver-partners, they are typically done through a private 3rd-party company. These do not usually involve fingerprints or law enforcement. Many companies do not even meet with drivers in-person before hiring them.

This is very different than traditional taxi companies that require drivers to spend time and money obtaining the proper licenses, completing background checks, and other requirements, before they are allowed to legally drive a taxi.

The following are common reasons that people are injured, and in some cases have died, as the result of ride-sharing:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Sexual assaults and rape
  • Robberies
  • Kidnappings
  • Driver’s who are felons
  • Physical assault and battery

If you or someone you love has been injured because of the negligence, or malicious or reckless behavior, of a rideshare driver, or if someone close to you has died because of this, you may be entitled to compensation.

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.
