Makkabi Law Group, among the nation's top personal injury law firms, has recovered $150,000,000 on behalf of its clients, including Los Angeles.

Uber and Lyft are two of the most popular rideshare companies in existence. They offer a convenient alternative to driving yourself, but they also come with their own risks. If you have been involved in an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver, then you may be wondering if you can file a personal injury claim. The answer is yes — but it’s important to hire the right lawyer for your case such as David Makkabi or his associates.

Common Rideshare Accident Injuries

Rideshare drivers are often unfamiliar with their cars and their surroundings. This can create dangerous situations that result in serious injuries. Common injuries include:

  • Bruising/contusion (bruises)
  • Fractures/dislocations/sprains/strains (broken bones)
  • Head/brain injury (concussion)
  • Internal organ damage

If you’re involved in an accident, there are two things that you need to know:

  1. The first is that you have rights. You have the right to be compensated for your injuries and other damages. You have a right to get the medical treatment that you need. And if you were injured while doing something on behalf of someone else, they should be held accountable for their actions.
  2. The second is that you need to know what those rights are and how to go about exercising them. That’s where our Los Angeles Uber & Lyft accident lawyer comes in. We work with people who were injured in rideshare accidents every day, and we can help you get the compensation that you deserve for your injuries and other damages.
