Our Alhambra Uber Accident Lawyers Are Personally Committed To Securing Your Justice

Uber is a popular mode of transportation in Alhambra. Unfortunately, its popularity has been linked to an increase in traffic accidents. If you get injured in an accident, call our Alhambra Uber accident lawyers at (888) 488-1391. We will help you seek justice and fair compensation.

Alhambra is known for its diverse culture, festive celebrations, and delectable fusion cuisine. Most of the activities take place in Alhambra Downtown, centered around Main Street and Garfield Avenue. Here, locals and tourists are always out and about, choosing to book Uber rides for the convenience of not having to drive in traffic. They also won’t have to worry about parking, especially considering the city’s notorious parking enforcement. However, the high demand for rideshare services contributes to a spike in Uber accidents.

Our Uber accident lawyers are always ready to help victims in these cases. Led by Arash Khorsandi, Esq., we have been assisting clients in California for many decades now. Our multi-awarded law firm has already helped thousands of clients and won them over $500 Million in settlements and awards, making us the top advocates for personal injury cases in the state.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law.

Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra

Common Causes Of Uber Accidents

Driver errors are the common cause of Uber accidents in Alhambra and other cities in California. This could be due to the fact that Uber drivers may not have commercial licenses and comprehensive safety driving training.

Uber requires its drivers to take safety training that consists of a few video courses. According to the US National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the introduction of rideshare services is linked to an increase of around 3% in road fatalities and injuries.

Based on the past cases our Uber accident lawyers have handled and news reports all over California, here are some of the most common cases of driver negligence that lead to collisions:

Distracted Driving – Uber drivers often need to use their mobile phones while driving to check passenger bookings, navigate using apps, and communicate with passengers.

Speeding – Uber drivers are paid based on the number of trips they accept. To earn more, they might overspeed to complete their rides more quickly and then get more trips.

Drowsy Driving – Many Uber drivers have full-time jobs. They sometimes go on duty after their shifts while sleep-deprived, risking their passengers’ safety.

Driving Under the Influence – Some Uber drivers take alcoholic drinks or stimulant drugs to keep them awake. These substances, however, negatively affect their critical thinking and decision-making skills, both of which are crucial for safe driving.

While driver error can be a leading cause of rideshare accidents, other factors can also contribute to collisions involving Uber. These include:

  • Negligence of other road users
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance
  • Poor road conditions
  • Construction zones
  • Auto defects
 

If you are injured in an Uber accident in Alhambra, reach out to our attorneys. We’ll investigate the cause of the accident and determine who is liable.

Common Injuries In An Uber Accident

Among all the claims we’ve handled, our Uber accident attorneys in Alhambra have identified lacerations and contusions as the most common injuries. Additionally, we have assisted clients with more severe conditions, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries

  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
 

We’ve also had clients whose loved ones died in a traffic crash. Our Uber accident lawyers in Alhambra have helped them file a wrongful death claim.

Many Uber accident victims experience mental health conditions alongside physical injuries. We can also help clients who suffer from:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Adjustment disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Various phobias
 

You should visit a doctor as soon as possible, no matter how minor the injury may seem. They can fully assess your situation and uncover any underlying problems that might be unnoticeable to you. Remember, some conditions don’t show immediate symptoms, so delaying treatment could worsen the problem and potentially lead to serious health complications.

Have you previously visited a healthcare clinic and are still unsure of the diagnosis? Bring your case to us. Our Uber accident lawyers can connect you with the top medical practitioners in Alhambra for a second medical opinion.

What Damages Can I Recover In An Uber Accident?

As a victim, you might be entitled to claim compensation for the following damages and losses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and treatment costs
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced capability to earn
  • Repair and replacement costs for damaged property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
 

There are many other types of damages you might be entitled to. Learn more by calling our Alhambra Uber accident lawyers. We will evaluate the full extent of your losses.

Uber's Insurance Policy

Uber provides third-party liability coverage for accidents involving its drivers, whether or not they were at fault. However, its insurance policy is what makes Uber accidents more complicated than regular car crashes. People who are unfamiliar with the policy may find it confusing as it specifies different scenarios and coverage amounts.

Our Uber accident lawyers in Alhambra will explain it to you, but here’s a quick overview of how the insurance policy works.

The Four Periods Of Uber Insurance Policy Coverage

Period 0 – The Uber driver is offline or has not logged into the app yet. Uber is not liable if they get into an accident, and the driver’s own insurance will take care of the damages.

Period 1 – The Uber driver is online but has not accepted any passenger bookings yet. Uber’s third-party liability coverage might apply if they get into an accident, which can provide:

  • $50,000 for bodily injury per person
  • $100,000 for bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 for property damage per accident
 

Period 2 – The Uber driver has accepted a ride request and is on their way to the pickup location. For this period, coverage increases:

  • Up to $1,000,000 for the total liability
  • Up to $1,000,000 for underinsured and uninsured motorists
 

If the driver maintains comprehensive collision coverage on their personal auto insurance policy, that coverage may also apply during this period.

Period 3 – The Uber driver has picked up the passenger and is on their way to the destination. The insurance coverage is the same as in Period 2.

Our Alhambra Uber accident lawyers will further explain this insurance coverage and all other policies that might apply to your case during your onboarding.

Who Pays For Damages If You Are In An Uber Accident?

California is an at-fault state, so the party to blame is also responsible for paying the victim for all the damages they incurred. In an Uber accident, these parties could face liability:

  • The Uber driver
  • Uber itself
  • Car mechanics and technicians

  • Car or auto parts manufacturer
  • Other road users
 

As there are many possibilities for who is at fault, it’s best to consult Uber accident lawyers in Alhambra. They can fully investigate the case to determine who should pay you for your damages and losses.

What To Do If You’re Injured In An Accident Involving Uber

If you have been injured in an Uber accident, whether or not you’re a passenger, it is important to keep yourself safe. Remember these tips from our Uber accident attorneys in Alhambra, as they might be helpful.

  1. Check yourself for any wounds and pain, especially in your head, neck, and limbs.
  2. If you can pull over safely, move to the roadside away from traffic. Turn on your hazard lights. If you’re on a freeway and can’t safely pull over, stay inside your car unless there’s immediate danger, like a fire risk.
  3. Call 911 for police and medical assistance.
  4. Collect evidence by taking photos or videos of your injury and the accident scene.
  5. Get the information of all parties involved, such as their full names, phone numbers, addresses, email, and insurance details.
  6. Look for witnesses and ask if they can give their testimony to the police.
  7. During a police interview, answer their questions truthfully about what you saw and remember. Avoid offering opinions, assumptions, or apologies, as these can be misinterpreted.
  8. Visit a doctor after the police investigation, even if you feel fine. Checkups and lab tests can help uncover any underlying injuries.
  9. Call our Alhambra Uber accident lawyers. They will advise you on what to do and how to file a personal injury claim.

What To Do If Your Uber Crashes

If you’re a passenger in an Uber that crashes, follow the same steps as above. Then, report the incident to the rideshare company via the app. You can ask the driver to make a report, as well.

Similarly, make sure to see a doctor and learn your options by consulting the Uber accident lawyers Alhambra trusts the most.

Uber Accident Statistics

In its US safety report, Uber stated that 99.9% of all its trips from 2019 to 2020 were completed without any safety incidents. This statistic is particularly remarkable given the sheer volume of rides that happen daily. During this period, the rideshare service recorded an average of nearly three million trips across the country each day.

According to the company, only 0.0002% of trips had a report of a critical safety incident involving the following:

  • 101 fatalities in 91 Uber-related motor vehicle accidents
  • 20 fatalities in 19 physical assault incidents related to Uber
  • 3,824 sexual assault cases reported on the Uber app
 

The statistics just prove that the rideshare service still presents significant risks for road accidents and assaults. Furthermore, the data doesn’t include the number of traffic collisions involving Uber that resulted only in injuries. Many of these incidents occur regularly and lead to devastating damage. Our Uber accident lawyers in Alhambra have dealt with numerous similar cases, contradicting the “safe image” that the company wants to portray.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Uber Cover Car Crashes?

Uber may cover car accidents involving its drivers through its third-party liability coverage, but only in specific situations:

  • If the driver is logged into the app and waiting for a booking
  • If the driver is on their way to pick up or drop off a passenger
 

Beyond these scenarios, Uber won’t likely cover the car crash. If you want to know if you can file a claim with the ridesharing company, reach out to our Uber accident lawyers in Alhambra. We’ll evaluate your case for free.

Do I Have To File A Lawsuit After My Uber Accident?

While you have the option to file a lawsuit, it’s not always necessary to receive compensation. In most cases, our Uber accident law firm in Alhambra recommends trying to settle the case out of court. Bringing the case to trial will prolong the entire process, which can also stress you out and delay your recovery.

Our Uber accident attorneys have successfully resolved the majority of claims before going to trial. We are skilled negotiators who prioritize achieving our clients’ goals. However, if negotiations prove unsuccessful, our experienced litigators are always prepared to take the case to court.

Regardless of whether we pursue an out-of-court settlement or litigation, our Alhambra Uber accident attorneys will remain your fierce advocates, fighting for the compensation you deserve.

Can Non-Passengers File A Claim Against Uber?

Non-passengers, like other motorists and pedestrians, can also file a claim against Uber if they get injured in an accident involving its drivers. As long as the driver is online or using the app, Uber’s insurance policy covers them.

Our Alhambra Uber accident attorneys are also available to assist non-passenger victims as long as an Uber vehicle is involved.

How Much Will I Get From The Uber Settlement?

In our years of serving victims, our Uber accident lawyers can say that each case is unique, and so is their compensation amount. The value of claims varies depending on the type of injury, the severity of the injury, its impact on the victim’s finances, and the applicable insurance policy limits.

For instance, one of our clients suffered spinal and wrist injuries when a rideshare vehicle struck him while he was riding his motorcycle. After admitting their fault, we reached an agreement with the other party for $1,550,000.

Our Alhambra attorneys can give you an estimate of your Uber accident claim’s value. Just give us a call to arrange a free initial consultation.

How Much Time Do You Have To File An Uber Accident Lawsuit?

According to the California statute of limitations, you only have two years from the date of the Uber accident to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, including cases involving the following:

Minor Victims

The statute of limitations is tolled for victims who are below the legal age. The 2-year deadline will only begin once they turn 18.

Delayed Discovery

When the injury isn’t discovered right away, the statute of limitations may begin on the date when it was medically diagnosed.

The Government

If a government agency is responsible, the victim will only have six months to file a claim.

Many people believe that two years is plenty of time to pursue a claim. However, in our experience, it is not, especially if the victim becomes disabled. Know your deadlines and applicable exemptions by letting our Alhambra Uber accident lawyers look at your case.

What Is Uninsured Or Underinsured Motorist Coverage In Uber Accident Claims?

Whoever is to blame for the accident is responsible for compensating the victim via their personal insurance policy (or Uber’s third-party liability coverage, if applicable). However, what if the at-fault party’s insurance does not have enough limits to cover the total damages?

This is where underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage kicks in. This policy will cover the victims’ losses if the at-fault parties can’t pay for all damages via their insurance.

When Should I Consult With An Attorney?

Are you asking, “When do I need a personal injury lawyer for my Uber accident?” The answer is simple: immediately.

Calling an Uber accident lawyer in Alhambra right away can help you build a stronger case by:

  • Obtaining crucial evidence before it’s too late
  • Getting ahold of witnesses while their memories are still fresh
  • Protecting your claim from insurance companies before they get the chance to use their tactics
