Choosing the Best Attorney For You

Injured from a Rideshare Accident Here's What You Need To DoThere are four main questions that one should ask before selecting an attorney with regards to ridesharing accidents. First, whether or not the lawyer that’s going to be selected is a personal injury lawyer. A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who dedicates himself exclusively to personal injury lawsuits. The next thing is whether that lawyer has experience with regards to handling ridesharing cases. Have they handled these types of cases from beginning to end? That brings up the third question as far as whether the attorney is a trial attorney. That means that the attorney is someone who handles the case all the way to trial and obtains a verdict or a resolution for the client.

The last question you should ask is whether the attorney is a board-certified personal injury attorney. That means that they rank inside the top three percent of all the attorneys in the state of Texas as being a specialist in personal injury law. With those four questions being asked and answered by the attorney that you’re talking to, it should form a good basis for you to make a decision.

What is the Settlement Timeline?

There are many factors that we look into. One is the type of insurance that is available. There are two separate insurances available for both the driver of the vehicle and the passenger. For the driver, it’s important to determine whether he’s going to be covered because many of the insurance companies try to omit them and claim that they’re contract employees. As far as the passenger, we have to look into the amount of insurance that’s available and the type. Lyft and Uber both carry different insurances with different limits. The third thing is the type of injury, the severity, the amount of time it’s going to take to recover, the medical costs, and also we have to look into factors such as how the injury was caused. We need to hire experts to determine who was at fault and the manner in which the accident happened. Once you have all that information, you’re going to be able to answer that question as to how long it’s going to take to resolve your ridesharing accident.
