Our lawyers in Kings County offer their help if you sustain injuries or lose a loved one in an Uber accident. Skilled attorneys can make a world of difference in negotiations and potential litigation. If you’re on the lookout, you need to find the best of the best.

Our Kings County law firm has lawyers with the following qualities:

  • Experienced – Years of experience in the field is one of the most important aspects your lawyer should possess. The experience they gain improves their skills and broadens their knowledge. When discussing experience with an attorney, it is often best to find one with trial experience. Your personal injury attorney should be able to handle your case if it goes to court.
  • Practical – Your lawyer should also be practical and action-oriented. Each personal injury case has unique elements. Lawyers should create tailored approaches to win each one. Uber accident lawyers in Kings County can tell you the general plan of action.
  • Knowledgeable – An attorney needs to have vast knowledge of your specific type of case. You would want an attorney who has successfully won similar cases.
  • Communicative – Finding an attorney who maintains open communication is crucial. They should be great at explaining things in layperson’s terms. You also need someone who will constantly update you on your case. Without your consent and knowledge, they won’t move forward with your case.
  • Transparent – Hire lawyers that will not further burden you, especially financially. A contingency fee payment structure is used by most personal injury attorneys, meaning you will only pay if they win your case. Their fees will be deducted from the compensation you will receive. The breakdown of possible expenses will be discussed during your onboarding.

How Our Kings County Uber Accident Attorneys Can Help Win Your Case

Hiring the Uber accident lawyers at Arash Law, whom Kings County trusts, is necessary if you’re injured during an Uber ride. They can help you navigate the claims process, negotiate with the insurance companies, and seek financial compensation for your injuries. Our lawyers can help win your case by:

  • Combing Through Uber Insurance Claims – Uber accident claims can be complicated, unlike those in traditional auto accidents. Different coverage is available according to the driver’s state during the crash. It can be confusing to determine which policy applies to you and how much coverage you are entitled to. Our skilled attorneys can help you navigate this complex legal system.
  • Standing Up For Your Rights – Uber is a multibillion-dollar company with an experienced legal team. Having to face them alone can be frightening. We know their legal strategies and know how to win your lawsuit against them.
  • Helping With Potential Third-Party Claims – Some accidents are not the fault of the Uber driver. Instead, they may be caused by broken-down car parts or a third-party vehicle. We will investigate the accident to find everyone who might be at fault. Then, we will bring claims against them to maximize your compensation.
  • Maximizing Your Compensation – An Uber accident can lead to various losses, such as hospital expenses, missed income, pain and suffering, and psychological distress. Our lawyers are skilled at estimating these losses, presenting a compelling case, and pursuing maximum compensation that covers all your damages.
  • Lifting The Weight Off Your Shoulders – It can be very tiring to deal with paperwork, negotiations, and, in some instances, court cases. By hiring our Uber accident attorneys in Kings County, you will be relieved of this burden, allowing you to concentrate on recovering from the accident.

Is Uber Responsible For Your Compensation?

Injured victims may not know where to file a claim after an accident. The status of Uber drivers as independent contractors rather than employees further complicates the process of determining who should pay. The company may deny injury claims even when it is at fault because its drivers are not Uber employees.

While it can be tricky to establish if Uber itself is liable for the accident, victims can still recover compensation since the company is mandated by law to provide insurance coverage in times of accidents. Essentially, Uber’s insurance policy may compensate you if the accident happened at the following specific periods.

  • Period 0 – When the driver is logged out of the Uber app at the time of the accident, the responsibility for compensation falls solely on the Uber driver’s personal insurance policy.
  • Period 1 – When the driver is logged into the app but hasn’t accepted a ride during the accident, Uber provides the following insurance coverage:
    • $50,000 per person in bodily injury coverage
    • $100,000 per accident in bodily injury coverage
    • $25,000 per accident in property damage coverage
  • Period 2 – When the driver has accepted a ride request and is en route to the passenger’s location during the accident, both Uber offers liability coverage of $1,000,000 and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage of $1,000,000 may apply.
  • Period 3 – When the driver is actively transporting a passenger during the accident, Uber offers the same coverage as in Period 2.

Our firm is constantly monitoring and getting updated on new laws and cases involving personal injury and wrongful death. By investigating the details surrounding your accident, our Uber accident attorneys in Kings County can give you clarity on how your claim will proceed, including who is responsible for your injuries.

Common Injuries After An Uber Accident In Kings County

Some people may think that if they are in an accident while riding Uber, their injuries will be minor because they are not driving. This is not always the case.

Among the common injuries our Kings County Uber accident attorneys see are the following:

Concussions & Head Injuries

Victims of car accidents are often diagnosed with head injuries, including concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). These can happen due to the car suddenly stopping and your head hitting the car’s interior. Symptoms include mild nausea, headache, dizziness, and blurred vision. Severe cases can result in permanent damage.

Back Injuries

The human body, especially the spine, is not designed to sustain heavy impact. Unfortunately, back injuries are a typical result of car accidents. The pain and disability from a serious back injury can be severe and long-lasting.

Whiplash & Other Neck Injuries

Whiplash occurs when the neck is suddenly and forcefully jerked back and forth. Speeds as low as 15 mph, with or without a seatbelt, can cause whiplash. Severe disk injury and cervical dislocation can also result from traffic accidents. Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries are also common.

Burn Injuries

If a vehicle catches fire after a crash and the skin comes in contact with hot fluids, surfaces, steam, or chemicals, the occupants can suffer from burn injuries. Very severe burns may require surgery and skin grafting.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Sprains, strains, bruising, and other damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments are very common in automobile accidents, including Uber-related ones. This type of injury can be painful. Severe cases may be long-lasting and require surgery.

Shoulder Injuries

During an Uber crash, force absorption from bracing the hands against the interior of the car can result in shoulder injuries. The shoulder locks in position and receives excessive force from the impact of the collision. Some cases may require surgery or intensive rehabilitation.

You should seek medical attention after suffering injuries in an Uber accident. Afterward, consult our experienced Kings County Uber accident attorneys to discuss your claims.

What To Do After An Uber Accident In Kings County

The injuries you or a loved one sustain in a car accident can have severe physical and financial consequences. If the collision involves an Uber driver, things can get more complicated. It’s important to know what to do if you are injured in an Uber accident. Here are the steps you should take, if you’re still able, to protect your rights:

  1. Call 911 – After moving to a safe location, contact emergency services. Regardless of how minor you think your injuries are, you’ll need first aid and injury assessment. Local police or the California Highway Patrol (CHP) should be dispatched to the scene. They will create a police report documenting the accident, which your party can use during the claims process.
  2. Seek Immediate Medical Attention – Your health should be your priority after an accident. Seek prompt medical attention, regardless of whether you are the driver or a passenger. Medical records will serve as crucial evidence. The longer you delay treatment, the harder it will be to determine the cause of your injuries. Keep all your paperwork and inform your healthcare provider about the collision.
  3. Document Important Details – Take pictures and videos of the scene, surroundings, injuries, and other possible evidence, like traffic and road signs. Also, exchange information with witnesses and drivers, including their insurance details.
  4. Report To Uber – Uber encourages victims to report any incident involving their service and drivers. You can use the app’s “Help” feature to file a report.
  5. Contact A Lawyer – Our team of Uber accident attorneys in Kings County can review the facts of your case, assist you in filing a claim, and fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.

FAQs About Kings County Uber Accidents
Where Does Your Compensation Come From?

You will typically receive a settlement from the at-fault driver’s insurance. But when it comes to Uber, a number of issues and questions about liable parties can arise. Your compensation may come from the driver’s insurance policy alone, or Uber may cover it. In some cases, both policies may cover your settlement award.

Uber and its insurance policy should cover victims for damages if they are injured while riding Uber or if the driver is transporting a passenger and they’re in a separate vehicle or a pedestrian. The amount of compensation victims receive depends on a number of factors, including the nature and extent of their injuries.

Speak with our trusted Uber accident lawyers in Kings County if you’re in the same situation. They can determine whose party and insurance company to seek compensation from, quantify your case, and negotiate with them on your behalf.

Can I Sue Uber For My Accident?

When an Uber driver or Uber car causes an accident, you can sue the company or the driver. However, it depends on whether the driver was working when the accident happened. Uber can be liable if they neglect their duty and hire drivers without checking their background. If a glitch in the app caused the accident, they may also be held liable.

Depending on the accident details, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation. Talking with our Kings County attorneys for Uber accident cases can help you know whether you have a valid case against the company.

Can I File A Wrongful Death Claim After The Loss Of A Loved One?

An Uber crash may claim a life. In that case, the family members of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim against those liable for their loved one’s death. A lawsuit allows surviving family members to recover damages for hospital bills, funeral, and burial fees, among others.

Loved ones may claim for wrongful death in California within two years of the victim’s death. You could lose your right to seek financial compensation if you do not file a claim within the indicated timeframe. Contact our legal team to learn how to protect your rights in pursuing damages after a loved one’s death.
