Victim of car accident unhappy with Lyft's response

With the explosive growth of ride-sharing companies in Texas such as Lyft and Uber, paying passengers assume a certain level of risk when they agree to travel with a driver they do not know. For one, they must rely on that person's level of responsibility and experience in following the rules of the road and getting them safely from one place to another. 

In the unfortunate case of a man in Florida, his Lyft driver is accused of crashing and then leaving him without any insurance information. He claims that during his drive, the Lyft driver he was traveling with was involved in a minor collision with another vehicle. While the drivers exchanged information, the injured passenger was left alone. Shortly after the accident, he started experiencing pain and sought medical assistance to manage his symptoms. 

Now, nearing three weeks after the accident, the man says Lyft has still failed to provide him with insurance information that would help him pay for mounting medical bills. When contacted, the company acknowledged that a civil lawsuit had been filed, but had no commentary on the accident. They cite the fact that authorities were never called to the scene as a factor that is complicating their ability to identify whether or not an accident actually happened. Currently, the victim is unable to work while he recovers. He took to Facebook to post information about his situation in hopes that people would share it and get the attention of Lyft. 

If people have been injured in a car accident, an attorney may be able to help them. Attorneys have both the experience and the skills to analyze evidence in building a case that will support the victims' claims.
