Transportation & Car Accident Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Injured in a Transportation or Car Accident?
With the everchanging advancements of technology, we are able to hail cabs and order deliveries from our personal devices. Rideshare workers such as Uber/Lyft and delivery personnel such as FedEx/UPS all use cars/motor vehicles to service the communities around them. However, driving around in a car comes with its own set of cons. While automotive and car accidents for delivery/rideshare workers are low, you still run the risk of being in those accidents.
