Los Angeles Uber Accident Lawyers
More people in our region are routinely using ridesharing apps. Ridesharing can be a cost-effective way to travel around Southern California. As of 2018, Uber — the world’s largest ridesharing company — reports that it has nearly 150,000 active drivers in California alone. With so many Uber trips being taken, accidents are all but inevitable. Unfortunately, many injured victims do not know what to do after a ridesharing crash. If you or your loved one was hurt in an Uber accident — whether as a passenger, another driver, or a pedestrian — our Los Angeles Uber accident lawyers can help.
WHAT TO DO AFTER AN UBER ACCIDENT
If you were injured in any type of Uber accident, it is imperative that you take immediate action to protect your legal rights and financial interests. Specifically, Uber accident victims should be prepared to do the following four things after a crash:
- Report the accident to the police;
- Seek a comprehensive medical evaluation (emergency care if necessary);
- Use the Uber app or their website to file a preliminary crash report; and
- Seek professional guidance from a Los Angeles Uber accident attorney.
AN OVERVIEW OF UBER’S INSURANCE POLICY: WHO IS LIABLE FOR AN ACCIDENT?
California has strict insurance regulations for Uber and other ridesharing companies. Under state law, Uber passengers should be covered by the company’s commercial insurance policy. Occupants of other vehicles or pedestrians may also be covered by Uber’s commercial insurance policy. As Uber drivers often use their personal vehicles when they are not “working” for the company, these accident claims can be especially complex. Our Los Angeles Uber accident attorneys are prepared to review and investigate your ridesharing accident and take action to hold all responsible parties — including Uber — legally liable.
UBER ACCIDENT VICTIMS DESERVE FULL COMPENSATION
Uber accident victims may be eligible for financial compensation for the full extent of their damages. Unfortunately, recovering full and fair compensation — even if you can prove liability — can often be difficult. Uber and its insurance carriers are generally aggressive in handling personal injury cases. They try to resolve claims for the lowest amount possible. At the office of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers, our Los Angeles Uber accident attorneys know how to hold the company and insurers accountable. Among other things, financial relief may be available for the following:
- Emergency medical care;
- Other medical bills;
- Ongoing rehabilitative care;
- Lost wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental distress;
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement;
- Long-term disability; and
- Wrongful death damages.
