Uber, Lyft, or ridesharing accident
Have you been injured in a car accident while using Uber, Lyft, or another ridesharing service?
Let’s look at some fast facts:
- There are over 900,000 Uber drivers in the U.S. alone.
- Since the rise of ridesharing services – like Uber and Lyft – car accidents have increased. There used to be 2 car accidents per 100,000 people. Now it’s 3.5 accidents per 100,000 people.
- Multiple studies have shown that ridesharing services account for about a 3% annual increase in traffic-related fatalities, including pedestrians, since their introduction in 2011. That’s about 987 people each year.
The shock of getting injured in a car accident can be traumatic – whether or not you were the driver. While you recover, Attorney Anthony Girgis will strive to obtain the maximum settlement amount for all your pain and suffering. At the Girgis Law Firm, APC, all ridesharing accident injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. This means if there is no recovery/compensation in your case, you will not be required to pay us any fees.
