Justice for Uber and Lyft Accident Victims.

Uber, Lyft, & Rideshare Accidents

Whether you were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft that crashed, or you were severely injured by a rideshare vehicle while you driving or on foot, you could be entitled to much more than the ridesharing company’s insurance says they cover. At SHK LAW, we help you claim and collect what you’re owed.

We Aim to Surpass Your Expectations

Our Approach

We’re prepared to put in as much time, energy, and capital as it takes to deliver you the settlement you deserve.

Right after we take your case, we head to the scene of the accident to investigate firsthand. We know that a report is coming from the police or the insurance company, but we don’t want to wait for evidence to be removed, destroyed, or concealed; we’d rather see things for ourselves.

By moving fast, we’re able to take photos and videos of evidence that could quickly disappear—broken glass on the pavement, tire tracks on the grass, and other vital clues. Oftentimes, we are able to examine the vehicles and perform downloads from their event data recorders. We are also able to secure all available video footage of the incident. By acting early and taking a proactive approach, we don’t leave anything to chance when it comes to collecting critical case evidence.

For us, collecting firsthand evidence is only the beginning. Ridesharing accidents differ from typical motor vehicle accidents, as Lyft and Uber drivers are considered “independently contracted” by their respective companies. To ensure we can win against these corporations (who are known for exploiting legal gray areas), we need an airtight case.

That’s why we spare no expense, working with our contacts and hiring accident reconstruction specialists to act as expert witnesses when needed. 

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
