Brooklyn Uber Accident Lawyer

Rideshares offer residents of big cities like New York a safe and convenient way of getting around. It has never been easier to get a ride, and the popularity of Uber is undeniable worldwide. However, if you live or work in Brooklyn and use the app on a regular basis, it is important to know your rights if you are ever involved in an Uber accident.

Hopefully, this will never occur. In the instance it does, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. A Brooklyn Uber accident attorney at Shulman & Hill can review your case and help you pursue the compensation you will likely deserve.

Causes of Brooklyn Uber Accident

Potential causes of a Brooklyn Uber accident are often the same as any type of vehicle accident. They include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Speeding,
  • Drunk driving,
  • Distracted driving (a common problem in the age of smartphones),
  • Sleep-deprived driving,
  • Hazardous road conditions,
  • Vehicle defects.

It is also worth noting that the degree to which Uber provides its drivers with training can be relatively minimal. You may one day be involved in a Brooklyn Uber accident if you accept a ride with a driver who may not be qualified to navigate the busy streets of New York City.

Potential Consequences of a Brooklyn Uber Accident

The severity of your losses and injuries after a Brooklyn Uber accident can vary widely depending on the nature of the accident. Some car accidents only leave their victims with a few minor scrapes and bruises, while others cause disabling pain and limit movement.

It is not uncommon for Brooklyn Uber accidents to result in injuries that require costly medical treatment and potential hospitalization. Your mobility might become limited, which may disable you to work in the case where your job involves even a minor degree of manual labor. This may lead to the inability to work altogether, preventing you from receiving paychecks. On top of medical bills and other lost wages, the accident brings along a number of financial issues.

Being involved in a Brooklyn Uber accident can also result in debilitating anxiety and other non-financial issues, that require patience and healing. Those are merely a few examples of the aftermath of an accident.

You may be entitled to compensation for such losses, which is why an attorney can be your best asset. They will give you the opportunity to recover while they study your case. To learn more about your options, coordinate with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn.

Pursuing Compensation: How an Uber Accident Law Firm Can Help

To secure your chances of recovering compensation that is sufficient to cover all your losses, work with a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn. The following are key ways our Brooklyn Uber accident lawyers can help your case:

Assessing losses

The total value of your claim is determined by a range of factors. Along with the financial losses you have already incurred, you may be entitled to compensation for future financial losses resulting from your accident. Additionally, you may potentially be compensated for losses that do not have clear dollar values.

Do not put yourself at risk of collecting less than what you are likely owed. Trying to determine what constitutes a fair payout on your own may be challenging without prior experience. When hiring an attorney qualified to handle this task, you will have access to legal advice.

Negotiating

Insurance companies, as any business, would likely want to protect their own financial interests whenever possible and may respond to claims accordingly. W

hen an injured party seeks compensation after a Brooklyn Uber accident, the insurer may review the case, finding ways to justify offering less compensation than a claimant may genuinely be entitled to.

You will not have to handle the negotiation if you hire an attorney. We can work on all correspondence with the insurance company on your behalf. Rather than accept low offers, we can present evidence showing the fair amount of compensation that you may be entitled to.

Keep in mind that it may be impossible to reach a fair settlement if an insurance company does not agree or requires more evidence. If that happens, we are prepared to go to court and represent you.

Identifying all liable parties

Identifying relevant liable parties can be complex. Brooklyn Uber accidents are not always the result of negligence on the part of the driver. Accidents may occur due to a vehicle designer overlooking a defect, a government agency failing to properly maintain a road, and more.

This highlights another reason to coordinate with an Uber accident law firm in Brooklyn when seeking compensation. We will leverage our vast resources to conduct a thorough investigation into your accident. Our investigation may reveal other negligent parties from whom you can seek compensation as well. If we identify such parties, we can negotiate with their insurers, maximizing your payout.

Handling administrative tasks

The claims process after a Brooklyn Uber accident involves many steps and tasks. Filing a claim can be complex, since you may need to present evidence, gather medical records, file paperwork, coordinate with experts, and more. An attorney can help with these aspects of your claim.

After an Uber accident, it is imperative that you focus on your recovery. You should not drain yourself by handling the claims process on your own. An attorney can be your most valuable source of assistance and advice.
