Uber is everywhere. While they may have started as an interesting way to get around town, they have now become the dominant player in many fields. However, if you are involved in a crash with an Uber vehicle, you may need a Uber accident attorney.
We want you to know that there is a dedicated team at the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. waiting to help you. We will get to work investigating your case so we can secure the compensation you need for all of your accident-related expenses.
What Can Happen?
What happens in an Uber ride does not necessarily stay in an Uber ride. A crash involving an Uber vehicle can affect the passengers in the Uber as well as other parties affected: passengers in other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, etc.
These incidents are just as dangerous as regular vehicle crashes.
Your Uber driver is no different than any other driver on the roadway. In most cases, they have no particular driver training. They are just regular people who also get into accidents.
For the latest reporting year in New Jersey, there were over 270,000 vehicle crashes reported with more than 60,000 people injured. We give you those statistics because we know that some of these crashes will involve Uber vehicles.
In the aftermath of a crash, we commonly deal with the following injuries:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
Each of these injuries will lead to medical expenses as well as other hidden costs. These can include:
- A victim’s lost income if they cannot work while they recover
- Possible home or vehicle accommodations
- Rehabilitation or physical therapy (maybe even in-home care)
- Emotional and psychological damages
Who is going to cover all of these expenses?
We would like to guarantee that Uber’s insurance will make you a fair settlement, but we know that it will likely not be the case. In fact, they may try to pawn the expenses off on the Uber driver’s personal insurance company. It depends on whether or not the Uber driver was signed into the Uber app to work as to whether Uber’s insurance will pay for anything at all.
In too many cases, a crash victim is left holding the bills with no way to pay them.
