Whether you are a regular rideshare user of just driving in your own vehicle, the last thing you should ever have to worry about is an incident involving an Uber car. However, when you need a Lansdale Uber accident attorney, we are ready to step in.
At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we know that you need compensation for all of your crash-related expenses. Let us get to work so we can investigate this incident, deal with insurance companies, and bring this to a close.
What can happen out there?
Ten years ago, you may not have known what an Uber was, but now you do. It seems like the company is everywhere. They get thousands of people in our area from place to place and they even deliver food. However, Uber vehicles are involved in crashes and you need to know what to do if it happens to you.
During the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, we know that there were more than 128,000 vehicle crashes that caused more than 80,000 injuries. We bring that up to say that, statistically, ridesharing vehicles are going to be involved in crashes. These drivers are just like the rest of us (it is not hard to become an Uber driver). They are prone to the same driving mistakes and can also be impacted by a negligent driver.
It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of a vehicle crash:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Whiplash injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
The number one priority after a crash is seeking medical treatment for your injuries, but shortly after you will start getting medical bills. What happens then?
Uber has insurance, so why does this matter?
Uber does have insurance, but it will not necessarily cover everything. In fact, you may be left dealing with the Uber driver’s personal insurance company as well as Uber’s insurance company.
- Whether the Uber driver is signed into the app to work and has passengers plays a large part in what insurance company will be providing coverage.
This can all be tough to sift through, especially when you are dealing with injuries, medical bills, and other household expenses.
