Unique Automobile Cases
  • Rideshare – The growing popularity of Rideshare transportation companies, such as Uber and Lyft, has led to the development of a specialized area of automobile accident cases. Robin Lourie Law has experience in pursuing claims for injuries caused by the negligence of Uber and Lyft drivers. If you have been injured while riding as a passenger in a rideshare vehicle it is best to choose an attorney who has experience in this arena.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage – Most people carry UM (uninsured or underinsured ) coverage on their own personal automobile. If you have been in a wreck caused by an individual who is not insured or who does not have enough insurance coverage to pay for your damages, you will need to seek the coverage you may have available under your own insurance policy. When dealing with UM coverage, there are many potential pitfalls that require an attorney who understands this area of the law. For instance, it is possible to seek UM coverage from auto insurance policies of relatives who live in your household. To protect your right to pursue UM claims, it is also imperative that you sign a limited liability release instead of a full release if you settle your claim with the at-fault driver. Robin Lourie has over 30 years experience with UM claims, and she will protect your rights to a full recovery.
