Potential Consequences of a Long Island Uber Accident

Hopefully, you will never be injured in an Uber accident on Long Island. If you are, though, you may face a range of struggles afterward. This may include the following:

  • Medical bills: Injuries you sustain in an Uber accident may require costly medical treatment. Since you likely did not anticipate being injured in an Uber accident, you may not be prepared to pay for the unexpected treatment.
  • Lost wages: Depending on the nature of your injuries and your job, you may not be able to work and earn an income in the aftermath of an accident. This could be temporary or permanent.
  • Diminished quality of life: Your injuries could have a negative impact on your overall quality of life. For example, if you sustain a spinal cord injury, you may be left paralyzed and unable to enjoy the activities you once did.

If your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation for such losses. A Long Island personal injury lawyer can help you recover the compensation you may be entitled to in these circumstances.

Common Causes of Long Island Uber Accidents

Uber accidents on Long Island may occur for a number of reasons. Common causes of such accidents include the following:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to obey the rules of the road
  • Intoxication
  • Distracted driving
  • Vehicle defects
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Drowsy driving

Pursuing Compensation After a Long Island Uber Accident

In the aftermath of an Uber accident, you may be able to pursue compensation for such economic losses as medical bills and lost wages. In some scenarios, it is also possible to seek compensation for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering.

You would typically begin seeking compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the potentially liable party or parties. However, it is important to be aware that it may not always be clear who the liable parties are.

This is one of many reasons it is wise to enlist the help of a Long Island Uber accident attorney when seeking compensation. We can conduct an investigation into the cause of your accident to help you determine who may be responsible for compensating you.

Uber Accidents on Long Island: How Common Are They?

Data regarding the rate of Uber accidents on Long Island specifically is not available. However, Uber has released data regarding its overall fatal accident rate.

Uber’s fatal accident rate per mile is approximately half of the national average. Unfortunately, Uber’s report does not address non-fatal accidents. Additionally, Uber’s report is based on Uber’s own definition of an “Uber-related crash.” The company’s definition appears to exclude crashes that occur when Uber drivers are driving on their way to pick up passengers. It is therefore unclear just how common Uber accidents may be.

The Role of a Long Island Uber Accident Law Firm

The reasons to work with a Long Island personal injury attorney when seeking compensation after an Uber accident are numerous. We can assist you in the following essential ways:

Investigating the Accident

Since it is not always easy to immediately determine who may be liable after an Uber accident, it is often necessary to conduct an investigation into the accident. This can require leveraging resources you may not have access to. A law firm, however, can help you by consulting police reports, camera footage, interviewing witnesses, and more.

Gathering Evidence

Gathering evidence is critical when seeking compensation after an Uber accident on Long Island. You may need to present substantial evidence showing why another driver or party may be responsible for compensating you. When filing a lawsuit, you will also need to document the extent of your injuries and losses to demonstrate why you may be eligible for compensation. We can help you gather the necessary documentation and evidence.

Handling Administrative Tasks

Recovering compensation after an Uber accident can be a tedious process. You may need to file paperwork, correspond with insurance adjusters, and more.

This can all be difficult when you need to be focusing on your recovery. You do not have to burden yourself with these tasks. Our Long Island Uber accident lawyers can handle them for you.


This is among the top reasons to seek representation from a Long Island Uber accident attorney. When you file a claim to recover compensation from an insurance company, an insurer may attempt to convince you to settle for less than your claim may be worth.

That does not need to happen. Our team is prepared to negotiate aggressively for a fair settlement on your behalf.
