Steps To Take After an Orange County Rideshare Accident

  1. Ensure your safety. Immediately check if you or anyone else involved in the accident is injured, and call 911 if there are any injuries.
  2. Report the accident. Notify the police and ensure an official report is filed, as this will be crucial for your claim.
  3. Gather the necessary information. Exchange contact and insurance information with the Uber driver and any other drivers involved, and take note of the vehicle's make, model, and license plate.
  4. Document the scene. Take photos of the accident scene, including all vehicles involved, any visible injuries, and road conditions.
  5. Seek medical attention. Even if you don't think you're injured, seeing a doctor is important, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
  6. Report to Uber. Use the Uber app to report the accident as soon as possible.
  7. Consult an Uber Accident Lawyer. Before speaking with insurance companies, contact an Uber accident lawyer to discuss your case and protect your rights.

The Complications of a Rideshare Accident Claim

A rideshare accident claim is a particularly complex car accident case because three different insurance companies may be involved. Wading through this red tape alone can be frustrating, time-consuming, and ultimately unsuccessful. You may be presented with lowball settlement offers barely covering your medical costs, or the insurance companies may work together to deny liability and damages.

In rideshare claims, you may be dealing with:

  • Uber or Lyft's insurance company
  • The rideshare driver's private insurance company
  • The other driver's private insurance company

As such, your claim may be difficult to resolve. You need the services of a personal injury lawyer familiar with such cases.

At MLG Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers, we know how to stand up to insurance companies so that your right to compensation is protected and the negligent parties who caused your injuries are held responsible. This may include the rideshare driver or the rideshare company itself.

Proving the Uber Driver Was Responsible for Your Accident

Proving the uber driver was responsible for your accident

Proving liability in an Uber accident requires demonstrating that the Uber driver's negligence directly led to your injuries. This often involves showing that the driver violated traffic laws, was driving recklessly, or did not exercise the appropriate level of care expected on the road.

Our team gathers evidence, such as police reports, witness statements, and traffic camera footage, to build a strong case against the responsible party. Establishing the driver's fault lays the groundwork for pursuing compensation for your damages.

In addition to proving the driver's negligence, we must also navigate the complexities of Uber's insurance policies. Uber provides different levels of coverage depending on the driver's status at the time of the accident, which can complicate claims. We thoroughly analyze the circumstances of your accident to determine the applicable insurance coverage and fight for your right to fair compensation. Our experience with rideshare accident claims allows us to challenge denials and effectively minimize delays in the claims process.

We Pursue Damages Under Uber's Insurance Coverage

We pursue damages under uber's insurance coverage

Uber carries a $1 million insurance policy for accidents that occur while a passenger is in the vehicle or the driver is en route to pick up a passenger. We aim to ensure that our clients receive the maximum compensation under this policy for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We navigate the claims process, dealing directly with Uber's insurance representatives to advocate for your best interests. By understanding the nuances of Uber's insurance coverage, we position your claim for a successful outcome.

However, when an Uber driver is not actively engaged in a ride but is available to accept rides, the coverage provided is significantly lower. In these situations, we explore all avenues for compensation, including the driver's insurance and any additional policies that may apply. Our comprehensive approach aims to secure the resources you need for a full recovery. We are prepared to take legal action if insurance companies are unwilling to offer a fair settlement, ensuring that our clients are not left bearing the financial burden of someone else's negligence.

Calculating Your Claim's Worth: What To Know

Determining the value of your Uber accident claim involves evaluating various factors, including the severity of your injuries, their impact on your quality of life, and the economic losses you've suffered. We consider medical expenses, both current and future, lost wages, and the potential for ongoing care or rehabilitation. We also assess non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. Our comprehensive approach ensures we seek compensation that fully addresses the extent of your damages.

It's important to remember that each case is unique, and the worth of your claim will depend on the specific details of your accident and injuries. Our Orange County Uber accident lawyer works closely with medical professionals and financial experts to accurately calculate the full value of your claim. This meticulous preparation strengthens your case and allows us to negotiate more effectively. Our ultimate goal is to secure a settlement or award that reflects the true cost of your accident, providing you with the financial support needed for a complete recovery.
