How Can an Uber Lawyer Help You Win Your Case?

If you were injured in an accident with a rideshare vehicle and feel that you have a strong claim, do you really need an attorney? How can an Uber lawyer help you win your case?

To answer these questions, we’ll need to start with a shared understanding of what makes Uber accident claims different from other accident categories in California. From there it will be clear why experienced personal injury attorneys like the team at Cohn & Swartzon are essential for protecting your rights and securing appropriate compensation.

Why Are Accidents with Ubers Different?

Unlike car accidents with other drivers in their personal vehicles, Uber (or more specifically, Uber through its insurance) may also be liable if you are in an accident with one of their drivers who has turned on their “App,” accepted a fare or is transporting a paying passenger, the difference of which could mean different available coverage. .

Further, California law states that rideshare platforms like Uber, Lyft, and Wingz must carry a higher threshold of liability insurance coverage – at least $1 million – to cover their active drivers.

In simple terms, this means that an accident in which the Uber driver was at fault could result in a greater amount of compensation at the end of a claim than an accident involving a driver who wasn’t “on the job.” 

That said, even if you believe that the Uber driver was clearly at fault, you will still need the help of an attorney who has experience with rideshare accident cases to secure the compensation you deserve. 

Why Do I Need an Uber Lawyer After My Accident?

Proving fault in a serious Uber accident case is not a simple or easy process. It requires extensive documentation and an understanding of how insurance companies attempt to minimize or deflect responsibility to avoid a payout.

Also, you will need a thorough and credible case for economic and non-economic damages, both now and in the future, to maximize the compensation you receive as you or your loved one recovers and attempts to regain a sense of normalcy.

Trying to handle your claim yourself is a mistake, especially if you have been injured or traumatized by the accident. Insurance adjusters and their legal teams are crafty, talented, highly trained, and only interested in saving their companies money. They will do all that they can to prevent you from securing the full amount of compensation you are entitled to for the damages you have suffered.

For all of these reasons and more, you need to contact an Uber lawyer right away after an accident – and Cohn & Swartzon is the best choice if you need an Uber lawyer in Orange County.
