Brooklyn Lyft Accidents: Important Information

The popularity of ridesharing services has offered numerous benefits to Brooklyn residents, making transportation from borough to borough easier than ever. Like with any trend, it does not come without drawbacks. Rideshare services have increased traffic in already busy areas, which has led to an increase in traffic deaths.

In general, when there are more cars there are on the road, the higher the chance of accidents occurring. Unfortunately, New York City statistics indicate that more motor vehicle collisions occur in Brooklyn every year than in any other New York City borough, including Manhattan, which is why drivers should be cautious behind the wheel at all times.

The potential causes of a Brooklyn Lyft accident include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving (which may be more common due to smartphones)
  • Speeding
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Vehicle defects the driver is unaware of
  • Aggressive driving (such as cutting off other drivers and quickly changing lanes without warning)
  • Failure to thoroughly check for other vehicles when changing lanes

How a Lyft Accident Law Firm Can Help

Hiring a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn to represent you after a Lyft accident can be beneficial for a number of reasons. The following are some of the key ways an attorney can help your case:

Pursuing Compensation

If you do not have experience pursuing compensation after an accident, it can be quite challenging to know what is considered a fair settlement offer. First, it is necessary to understand the full extent of your financial losses, which can be time-consuming and complex. You may also need to estimate your future financial losses.

Since it is best to seek the full amount of compensation to which you may be entitled, you can better your chances by consulting a lawyer. Our Brooklyn Lyft accident attorneys can thoroughly review your losses to help negotiate for a fair payout.


Most insurance companies operate the same way all businesses do and may not immediately agree to pay the full amount of compensation that you are asking for, arguing that your claim is worth less than what you are seeking. This is one of the most critical reasons to enlist the help of a personal injury law firm when filing a claim. Representation from qualified legal experts will be beneficial during negotiations with insurance companies.

An attorney can gather and present all evidence necessary to show that, based on the extent of your losses, the amount of compensation you are pursuing is appropriate. If we are unable to reach a fair settlement offer, we will go to trial on your behalf and represent your interests.

Identifying Liable Parties

You may be able to seek additional compensation from other parties if their negligence contributed to your accident. When an attorney investigates a Brooklyn Lyft accident, they may find that another driver was negligent and caused the accident. In such circumstances, more compensation could potentially be recovered.

Most importantly, hiring a Brooklyn Lyft accident attorney gives you more time to focus on your recovery. At Shulman & Hill, our Brooklyn attorneys can handle every step of the claims process while you recover.
