Uber Car Accidents Mean Complex Liability

By Breyer Law Offices on October 21, 2017

Uber is available in most cities across Arizona, especially in busier cities like Phoenix, Tempe, and Tucson. In fact, Uber rolled out its self-driving car in Tempe, and that’s also where one of those cars got into an accident — near Apache and Terrace close to Arizona State University — in early 2017. While the self-driving car wasn’t to blame (it had the right of way), accidents do happen and passengers could be involved in accidents whether the car has a driver or not. If you use Uber and are the victim of an accident, it’s good to know you have a team on your side to help you.

What to Know About Uber Accidents

Where to begin? Were you a passenger in the Uber car or were you in the other car? Or were you a pedestrian? There are so many things to consider when looking into an Uber accident case, and that’s why it’s important to have the team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C., to help you. They’ll figure out whether the Uber driver was on the clock at the time, who was at fault, and which insurance company should cover the medical bills. In most cases, Uber itself could be responsible for paying a settlement.

The first thing you should do if you are involved in an accident is call the police so you can file a report and so they can get you medical assistance. All your injuries should be tended to by a medical professional and you should keep copies of all the reports while you focus on healing as your first priority. This way, when you contact The Husband and Wife Law Team, we’ll be able to start working on your case right away. We will gather facts to determine who was at fault to build your case. We will help you negotiate with all the parties involved, including the insurance companies, and the driver’s lawyer.

What to Expect from a Settlement

Settlement size is determined by the severity of the accident and the extent of the injuries you suffered. Injuries can take weeks and months to heal, which may mean you lose wages because you cannot work. Additionally, your injuries can lower your quality of life. We take these factors into consideration as well as the medical bills you incurred after the accident, and then we start negotiating with the insurance companies. We represent you every step of the way and help you determine whether a settlement is worth accepting or whether you should continue negotiations.

Because Uber accident cases can be so complex, it’s extremely important to have a knowledgeable and experienced team on your side. The ins and outs of who is at fault, who they are insured with, and who is responsible for paying the settlement can be overwhelming if you’ve never been involved in a case like this before. We take all the worry out of it for you so you can focus on healing while we handle your case from start to finish, even coming to you at the hospital or your home if you can’t get to us because of your injuries or your schedule.
