An insurance company has once again settled a case with KMW attorney Chris Kellam. KMW’s client was seriously injured while she was a passenger in a rideshare vehicle. Mr. Kellam recovered for his client approximately $650,000, more than six times the pre-suit offer made by the insurance company.
The use of rideshare companies is on the rise. But what happens when the driver sent to pick you up is negligent, or when another driver is negligent while you are a passenger in the rideshare vehicle? Will your personal insurance cover you while you are in a rideshare car? Will your personal insurance cover you when you have engaged a car for hire? Does the rideshare driver have insurance that covers you for damages you might sustain in a crash?
Rideshare companies have become clever when it comes to limiting the coverage they purchase for their drivers. Only an attorney with experience pursuing claims against the insurers for the rideshare companies will know where to look and how hard to dig. Keller, Melchiorre & Walsh handles these claims and has the experience to maximize your recovery.
Mr. Kellam’s client we’ll be able to pay for the medical treatment she was forced to endure as well as the medical treatment that has been recommended for her in the future. KMW attorneys were able to maximize her recovery by forcing the insurance company to disclose the entirety of its coverage and to treat our client fairly.
