Were you or a family member injured in an accident involving a Lyft vehicle? If you were a passenger in the Lyft vehicle or an occupant of the other vehicle involved in the accident, our Spartanburg Lyft accident lawyer could help. We can explain your rights, the rideshare company’s responsibilities, and the laws and regulations that establish your right to recover damages.
At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, our Lyft accident lawyers will investigate your accident and collect evidence that proves the at-fault driver’s negligence and financial liability. We also carefully document your financial damages and assign a financial value to your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. Our legal support starts with a free review of your case and pursuit of the best possible outcome for you.
Put Our Law Firm To Work on Your Case Immediately
After a Lyft accident in Spartanburg, your time to recover damages via a personal injury lawsuit is limited by S.C. Ann § 15-3-530. In South Carolina, it generally limits you to three years to file your:
- Personal injury lawsuit based on the date the accident occurred
- Wrongful death lawsuit based on the date of a loved one’s demise
If the statute of limitations expires, you would not be permitted to file your lawsuit at all. If you do manage to file your lawsuit too late, the at-fault party and their representative will request—and are likely to receive—its immediate dismissal. Either outcome will prevent you from compelling the at-fault driver to compensate you for your accident-related expenses and losses.
Damages You Can Recover After a Lyft Accident
A car accident of any type can leave you with many financial expenses and losses. The driver whose negligence caused the accident should be responsible for its immediate and ongoing costs.
Recoverable damages include:
- Economic damages, including past and future medical bills and income loss, including loss of earning capacity (we also pursue damages to repair or replace your damaged property)
- Non-economic damages, including lasting physical disability, disfigurement, and your loss of enjoyment of life (we also pursue damages for your physical and mental pain and suffering)
- Wrongful death damages, including funeral and burial expenses (we also pursue compensation for your loss of consortium, companionship, guidance, and society)
Our rideshare accident lawyers will review your accident and its related expenses. We make sure no valid damages are omitted from your compensation request. We also work hard to make sure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
Evidence That Supports Your Right To Recover Damages
As part of our comprehensive legal support, we handle the time-consuming and tedious process of collecting evidence that proves the cause and cost of the accident. Collecting medical records alone could mean contacting multiple bills from multiple professionals and facilities.
In addition to medical records, evidence collection includes:
- Employment and salary history records
- Accident scene and injury photos
- Statements from accident witnesses
- Car accident report with notes and diagrams
At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, our Lyft accident lawyer representing clients in Spartanburg does more than collect evidence. We also review each item and organize them into an effective evidence file.
