Hiring A Lyft Lawyer

Why Hire a Lyft Lawyer?

Lyft lawyerA Lyft lawyer knows what a Lyft assault victim is up against. As a victim, you are unlikely to get adequate support from Lyft on your own. In fact, Lyft has a team of defense lawyers to help them dismiss any liability. Additionally, Lyft will often use poor communication and other tactics so that you abandon your claim. Lyft may offer counseling or refunds, but often this is not enough. If you are seeking monetary compensation, a Lyft lawyer may be able to help you. A Lyft lawyer will navigate the legal system with you and can file a Lyft lawsuit on your behalf.

In its first-ever safety report, Lyft announced that it received more than 4,000 Lyft sexual assault reports were made to the company between 2017 and 2019.

In reality, Lyft drivers and passengers are still being assaulted on a regular basis and need better support and protection. The public needs to be made aware that a Lyft attack can happen to anyone during any ride.

What to Expect by Working with a Lyft Lawyer

Working with a Lyft lawyer should be easy. A qualified Lyft lawyer will guide you through the legal process as a Lyft lawsuit is filed on your behalf. Your primary task is simply to provide information regarding the Lyft assault. You may also be asked to provide any correspondence you have had with Lyft on the app and through email. Any police report, ride receipt, hospital bill or video footage should be submitted as well.

A Lyft lawyer will evaluate your potential case to determine whether it meets certain criteria. Upon accepting your case, a lawyer will have you sign a retainer agreement to move forward. Most Lyft lawyer fees are contingency based. This means you will not pay anything out of pocket unless a settlement is won. The majority of Lyft assault cases are settled out of court. Rarely will you need to visit the lawyer’s office. If a settlement cannot be reached, claims may be litigated in court.

Patience is a virtue when filing a Lyft lawsuit. The process takes time, and a settlement is not reached overnight. However, a good Lyft lawyer will be transparent with you and take the time to answer any questions you might have regarding compensation.

Victims of Lyft-related assault need time to heal and may not feel comfortable talking about the abuse. A Lyft lawyer will give you the time that you need and make you feel at ease.

How Long Can I Take to Decide Whether to File a Lawsuit?

Laws may differ in each state granting you more time. For your convenience, we have information on laws that may apply to rideshare claims, state by state. A Lyft lawyer knows the legal deadlines for filing a claim.

Some victims choose to wait before contacting a Lyft lawyer. Even if a victim does not wish to file a claim right away, it is important to document the Lyft abuse or assault. The victim should report the incident to Lyft through the app or email. Screenshots of any correspondence with Lyft should be saved. The Lyft assault victim may also document the incident with the police or even a therapist.

Whether you need extended time or decide to submit a claim immediately, it is essential to hire a Lyft lawyer. Lyft is trying to dismiss any liability on their end.
