What Damages Can a Lyft Accident Victim in South Carolina Get Compensation For?

The attorneys at Hughey Law Firm will identify every damage resulting from your Lyft accident. These are the damages that you should get compensation for.

While your damages are unique, we often see rideshare accident victims suffer:

Medical Costs

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that traffic accidents can cost South Carolinians more than $1.5 billion in a single year, with medical costs accounting for a portion of that total.

A Lyft accident victim in South Carolina may need:

  • Ambulance or Medevac transport from the accident scene
  • Emergency department treatment
  • Emergency or non-emergency surgery
  • Hospitalization
  • X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and other medical imaging
  • Medications
  • Appointments with physicians
  • Various other medical services

If injuries from a Lyft accident cause disability, medical costs may become costlier and long-term. The severity of an injury directly affects the cost of medical care.

The Hughey Law Firm team will get all your medical bills to cover the current cost of care. We will also determine the likely cost of future care, ensuring that you won’t have to pay out of your own pocket for accident-related medical services.

Professional Damages

Those involved in rideshare accidents may suffer harm to their professional ambitions.

Any disruption in your work life may cause:

  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning power
  • Lost opportunities to earn promotions and bonuses
  • Lost employer-matched retirement contributions
  • Other professional damages

If you cannot work for a substantial time, you may lose the fulfillment you get from your career. Our firm will determine the monetary cost of any professional damages you suffer.

Property Expenses

If your vehicle, phone, or other property sustained damage during the Lyft accident in South Carolina, our firm will seek equal compensation from liable parties. Severe ridesharing accidents involving your vehicle can cause costly damage, and our firm will demand that liable parties cover that damage.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering is a common damage we see in motor vehicle accident victims. We expect these damages, as accidents can be traumatic.

The pain and suffering we see in rideshare accident victims include:

  • Pain from injuries
  • Traumatic memories
  • Emotional distress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep issues
  • Lost quality of life
  • Loss of physical abilities
  • Loss of cognitive abilities
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

If you receive treatment for any accident-related pain and suffering, we will include the cost of treatment in your case.

A Loved One’s Passing

If your loved one passed away from injuries suffered in a Lyft accident, we first extend our condolences. You can seek justice for a loved one’s wrongful death, and our Lyft accident lawyers can lead your case.

Recoverable damages in a fatal Lyft accident case may include:

  • Your pain and suffering (and necessary treatment)

How Can a Lyft Accident Victim Get Compensation?

To get compensation for a Lyft accident in South Carolina, we can file:

  1. An insurance claim
  2. A lawsuit

Specifically, Lyft provides insurance coverage for its drivers and those their drivers harm. However, this coverage only applies under specific conditions, and coverage limits may vary.

Many Lyft accident victims will seek to get compensation through the insurance policy they pay for. After all, motorists carry auto insurance hoping that it will come in handy when an accident happens.

However, lawsuits are appropriate for some victims of Lyft accidents in South Carolina. This includes cases where insurance companies refuse to provide the compensation the accident victim deserves.

Hughey Law Firm assists Lyft accident victims with both claims and lawsuits. We will review your accident, assess your insurance coverage, and develop a strategy specific to your case.
