Let Us Handle Your New York Lyft Accident Case
Our team will pursue the money you need to cover your expenses and losses. We will investigate your Lyft accident and collect evidence to prove:
- The defendant acted carelessly, recklessly or negligently
- The defendant caused your accident and injuries

In some cases, insurance companies refuse to enter into a fair settlement. It is sometimes necessary to file an injury lawsuit and take your case in front of a judge and jury. We will stand by you throughout this process, helping you understand what to expect and arguing for the payout you deserve.
