car accident loans uber lyft taxi
Personal injury cases are always disappointing. If you are permanently injured, you know that no amount of money in the world can make up for it. Having to wait and bargain for enough compensation to cover your medical bills and living expenses after an accident can be mind-boggling. In fact, you may put off seeing the top specialists because you are afraid of the compensation falling short and sticking you with the bills. This is how serious injuries turn into lifelong disabilities that break your heart when you think about various activities that you miss doing. The good news is that you can obtain personal injury legal loans if you have been injured by a taxi, Uber, or Lyft driver.
In fact, the awards are usually very high in these cases because commercial vehicles are required to carry premium insurance policies. They have to in order to protect the assets of the corporation employing the drivers. And when you’ve been injured by one of these taxi drivers, it is easy to imagine factors that would place the blame on them. Long hours, fast-paced demands to make money, and navigating new roads using only GPS can all lead to mistakes and accidents. And because we have all been in the backseat with a lead-footed tax driver, it is easy to see why they are more likely to be at fault in any subjective accident situation.
How Does a Personal Injury Loan Work?
In order to qualify for a personal injury taxi, Uber, or Lyft lawsuit, you need to have a cause of action that a lawyer has faith in fighting for you. Frivolous lawsuits would be ones where you were drinking and driving or had violated traffic laws such as running a red light. If there was a collision with one of these commercial taxi drivers, and you did nothing wrong, the chances are that they were speeding or driving in a reckless manner. If your attorney agrees that you have a case, we can discuss the details with your lawyer and determine the strength of the case. Depending on the strength of the case’s merits (key points in debate), we can issue legal loans for thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Once the legal loan offer is accepted, you get to spend your money before the case is settled. In addition, you are relieved of any duty to pay us back unless you win. Even if you ultimately lose the case or the settlement is a lot less than you’d expected, the legal loan is our investment in your case. Of course, we only have faith in cases that we believe are good investments. The legal loan charges some additional interest that provides an incentive for us to wager our money and pay you with a lump sum immediately. Nevertheless, because timing may be critical when it comes to getting paid, a legal loan is an excellent way to ensure that your needs are taken care of now if you are willing to pay some interest that has little effect in the future.
What Can I Do to Strengthen My Lawsuit?
In order to strengthen your lawsuit and the potential value of the settlement, you should work closely with your attorney and follow their advice. Avoid posting misleading photos on social media that may be used to contradict your claims of injury and pain. Refrain from making any statements to anyone regarding your case other than your attorney. Record thorough records that itemize your lost income, living expenses, medical bills, and that document your injuries.
In addition, you should hire an attorney immediately to ensure that the “black box” in the taxi, Lyft, or Uber vehicle is preserved. These black boxes will record all the statistical information regarding crash data at the time of the accident. If you were driving at the speed limit and the other driver was speeding, this factor alone can tilt the verdict in your favor.
You can also consider what other elements at the scene of the accident may support your liability theory. If there was a stop sign that was slightly obscured, maybe the distracted driver would overlook it. If streets are close together, maybe the driver went the wrong way on a one-way street by following GPS. The time of day and lighting may even make it more likely that a distracted driver would hit you.
