Uber and Lyft rides have become so popular that people nowadays prefer taking an Uber or Lyft rather than driving their own vehicle.
However, since most drivers rely on their GPS and are unfamiliar with the routes, they spend more time focusing on the map rather than the road ahead. For that and many other reasons, accidents happen every day.
If you ever wondered what an average value of an Uber or Lyft accident case was, here are some information that will help you understand the true value of these cases.
Just like with every other car accident, there are determining factors that impact the size of the case settlement. Some of those factors involve:
- The extent and severity of the injuries the passenger has sustained
- Current and future medical (and rehabilitation) costs
- Non-economic Damages
- Economic Damages
- Punitive damages
- Insurance policy coverage (if available)
- Attorney’s fees
When everything is taken into consideration, you should know what to expect.

The Importance of Having a Good Attorney
The last and the most important factor in determining the size of your case settlement is your attorney. Assuming that you hired one with experience and knowledge, you may look forward to getting the settlement that you deserve. However, if your attorney is inexperienced or has never settled an Uber or Lyft case before, the chances are that you may walk away with far less than you deserve.

In most cases, the driver is the one at fault and the one responsible for everything that happens. Since the driver is representing a company, you may have the right to sue the company directly.
