Manhattan Uber Accident Lawyers
Uber and other ride-share companies provide a useful service in Manhattan and other parts of New York City. These rides typically cost less than a cab and the app is easy to use. However, like all drivers, Uber operators can be negligent. When their careless or reckless acts result in a car accident, any injured parties can have a viable claim for compensation.
If you sustained bodily injuries in an Uber-involved accident, you are entitled to seek monetary compensation. Whether you are filing a lawsuit against the driver or pursuing an insurance claim directly with the ride-share service, we can help. To discuss your options, contact an Uber accident lawyer from Douglas & London right away.
Who is entitled to compensation?
Any person who suffers an injury due to the negligence of an Uber driver – would be entitled to damages, including other motorists or pedestrians. When the ride-share operator is negligent, anyone they injure can pursue a legal claim against them just like any other accident. The good news is that Uber offers substantial insurance coverage for any riders that suffer injuries while on a ride.
Benefits of hiring an attorney following an Uber accident
Following an accident with a ride-share driver, there are several reasons to hire an Uber or Lyft accident lawyer. Pursuing compensation for your injuries can be complex on your own, but the right attorney will simplify the process and increase your chances of a successful recovery. Some of the benefits of hiring an attorney include:
- Negotiating with insurance companies. Insurance companies know what your claim is worth. They also know that, without the guidance of an attorney, you probably don’t. Your attorney negotiates a fair offer for your injuries.
- Avoiding blame. In some cases, the Uber driver could blame you for causing the accident. Your attorney can help develop a strong case to prove you were not at fault.
- Evaluating your claim. Determining the value of a personal injury claim can be challenging. The right attorney could have the skill and experience to evaluate your case properly.
- Identify sources of compensation. There might be more than one potential source of compensation for your injuries. An attorney could identify the defendants and insurance policies that could cover your losses.
