A Lyft passenger is recovering after surgery to her humerus (arm). The passenger required a rod and more than 10 screws to stabilize the fracture.
On February 28, 2018, the victim was a passenger in a Lyft car. As the Lyft driver entered the intersection of Ashland Ave. and Lawrence Ave. in Chicago, it T-boned a luxury sports car. Both drivers claimed to have the green light and right-of-way. Responding Chicago Police Department officers were unable to immediately determine fault.
The Lyft passenger was transported by ambulance from the scene. Both vehicles were totaled.
The Lyft passenger retained the law firm LegalRideshare to recover the costs of medical bills, lost wages, pain/suffering and disability. LegalRideshare’s lawyers are dedicated to Uber and Lyft accident and injury claims. The firm has filed a lawsuit on the passenger’s behalf.
