What Kind of Settlement Can a Bay Area Uber Accident Lawyer Help You Secure?

An experienced Bay Area Uber accident lawyer can help you secure a range of settlements, including:

  • Medical expenses: Compensation for past and future medical bills related to your injuries, including surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing treatment. Your attorney will obtain and present receipts for care you’ve already received, and consult with financial and medical experts to calculate the future sums you’ll need to continue treatment.
  • Lost wages: Reimbursement for income lost due to missed work during your recovery period, as well as future financial losses. These could include losses related to unemployment due to your injuries, reduced employment, or loss of job-related benefits like health insurance, retirement and 401K contributions, and profit-sharing losses.
  • Pain and suffering: Damages for physical pain, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life resulting from the accident. If your injuries cause issues in your marriage or family (loss of consortium), those harms can also be included when reaching a fair settlement.
  • Property damage: Coverage for repair or replacement of your personal property damaged in the accident. This could include your clothing, technology like your phone or computer, or other items like suitcases or a bicycle that you were traveling with.
  • Wrongful death: Compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and the extreme emotional distress of losing someone before their time.

Additionally, in cases of extreme negligence by the driver or by Uber in hiring a problematic employee, punitive damages may be pursued to punish the responsible party. Those funds are then awarded to you in addition to the compensation listed above.

While some injuries may never fully heal, the recovery you receive from a successful lawsuit can help you access the best healthcare available. By maximizing your compensation with the help of a proven San Francisco Uber accident attorney, you have the means to provide yourself with a stable, hopeful future.

A recent study from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business has found an uptick in fatal rideshare accidents. Crashes with companies like Uber and Lyft have resulted in a 3% rise in overall car accident fatalities. 

The increasing number of rideshare vehicles on the road is responsible for about 1,000 daily car accidents. In one year, data showed that Uber vehicles were involved in 97 fatal crashes, resulting in the death of 107 people.

If you have suffered losses in an Uber or Lyft rideshare accident, contact Levin Simes at (415)-426-3000 as soon as possible for a free, confidential, compassionate consultation. Know your rights, explore your options, and empower us to pursue the justice you need.

What Types of Injuries and Losses Can a Bay Area Uber Accident Attorney Handle?

An Uber accident attorney can handle various types of injuries and losses stemming from rideshare car accidents, including:

  • Physical injuries: This includes a wide range of personal injuries such as whiplash, bone fractures, head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, and internal injuries. We will thoroughly document all of your hospital bills, medication expenses, and follow-up care costs related to these physical injuries.
  • Emotional distress: Crash survivors may experience various types of emotional trauma, including anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These conditions can negatively affect your vitality in wide-ranging ways, disrupting social relationships, thwarting career opportunities, and diminishing your enjoyment of life.
  • Insurance claims: Your Uber accident lawyer can negotiate with Uber's insurance or your own health insurance providers to ensure you receive the full coverage promised to you. By handling these communications on your behalf, we help spare our clients the stress of arguing for what they are already rightfully entitled to.

The value of legal representation is having a trusted professional on your side to negotiate a fair settlement, or pursue legal action through litigation if necessary. Let our Uber accident attorneys handle the intricacies and deadlines associated with your case, so you can rest and heal in peace.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whose insurance covers my injuries in an Uber accident?

Uber provides insurance coverage that can apply depending on the specific circumstances of the accident. Your attorney from Levin Simes can help determine which insurance policy (Uber's, the driver's, or another party's) should cover your injuries and losses. 

By pursuing all possible avenues in the various insurance policies relevant to your crash, we work to make sure every aspect of your real costs and losses are covered. You didn’t cause this accident, and the cost to repair the damage should not come out of your pocket.

Is Uber liable for accidents involving its drivers?

Uber can be held liable for accidents involving its drivers if the driver was actively working for Uber at the time of the accident. The rideshare company provides insurance coverage for its drivers, which can come into play if the Uber employee was (1) on their way to pick up a rider, (2) transporting a rider when they hit your car, or (3) transporting you as a paying passenger. An attorney can help determine Uber's liability in your specific case.

How can I prove negligence in an Uber accident case?

To establish negligence, your attorney will typically gather evidence, including accident reports, witness statements, photos, and medical records. They'll assess factors like driver behavior, road conditions, and potential mechanical failures to build a strong case against the responsible party.

To be clear: proving negligence is your lawyer’s job, not yours. We investigate, document our findings, and litigate on your behalf so that you can rest in peace.

How long do I have to file a claim after an Uber accident?

The filing deadline for personal injury claims varies by state, but it's essential to act promptly. In California, the general time limit to file a claim for a rideshare accident is two years from the date of the crash

Some exceptions can shorten or extend the amount of time you have to take legal action. One example includes if you’re suing on behalf of a child. Another factor is if the crash was caused by government failures like dysfunctional traffic lights or dangerous public roads. 

Contact our local Bay Area Uber accident attorneys at (415)-426-3000 as soon as possible after an accident. We can secure evidence while it is still fresh and available, research the applicable laws, and meet all deadlines on your behalf.
