New York City Uber Accident Lawyer

Although ridesharing services are fairly new when compared to other means of getting around New York City (such as cabs or the subway), many New Yorkers struggle to remember a time when scheduling an Uber was not an option. Although ridesharing is a great method for getting from point A to point B, it is not a flawless one. Like any other form of transportation, Ubers have their own unique list of issues when it comes to dealing with accidents.

Every time you call an Uber in New York City, it is important to be aware of your surroundings. Although you are not the driver, you are putting your life in the hands of a stranger.

Have you or a loved one been injured in a New York City Uber accident? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for losses like medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma. At Shulman & Hill, our New York City location specializes in motor vehicle accident cases like Uber accidents. If you need assistance with filing a claim or any other aspect of a New York City Uber accident case, contact us as soon as you can.

New York City Uber Accident Cases: Essential Information

Ridesharing services have made getting around New York City easier than ever. That being said, the convenience of these services comes at a cost. The emergence of Uber and other ridesharing apps has added to the flow of traffic on the road. This, in turn, has brought forth some unwanted consequences. Specifically, experts have found that ridesharing services have contributed to an increase in traffic accidents in recent years.

There is a natural and simple explanation for this. Ultimately, ridesharing services have put more cars on the road. Generally speaking, higher traffic density equates to a higher chance of accidents happening. This can be particularly true in an area like New York City. After all, the Big Apple was already one of the most densely populated areas in the country long before Uber and other apps came into existence.

Potential Causes of New York City Uber Accidents

The causes of New York City Uber accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Sleep-deprived driving
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Hazardous weather conditions
  • Vehicle defects and/or lack of proper vehicle maintenance
  • Aggressive driving

Regardless of the specific cause of your New York City Uber accident, you may sustain injuries that will require potentially costly medical treatment. Paying for unexpected bills can be difficult for most people. It becomes even more difficult if the severity of your injuries prevent you from returning to work. You may not be able to earn a paycheck if your injuries keep you away from work for several weeks or months. In some cases, an injury can require you to step away from a job entirely.

Seeking Compensation After a New York City Uber Accident

Although you may be inclined to expedite the legal process by representing yourself, your chances of securing compensation could decrease. Due to their immense familiarity with the subject matter at hand, a personal injury lawyer in New York City will likely increase your chances of receiving compensation.

In New York City, ridesharing services like Uber must have insurance so injured victims can seek compensation for their losses. You can begin the process of pursuing compensation by filing a claim against Uber’s insurance. The following are just a few of the ways Shulman & Hill can help you pursue a payout.

Investigating the Accident

In these circumstances, your primary means of seeking compensation will typically involve filing a claim to collect from Uber’s insurance. However, depending on a range of factors, the amount of compensation you receive from Uber may not be enough to cover all your losses.

If another party’s negligence caused your accident, it might be possible to seek further compensation. For example, when investigating your accident, our New York City Uber accident lawyers may learn of a vehicle defect that a designer or manufacturer overlooked. If this is the case, you can potentially seek additional compensation by filing another claim or lawsuit against this manufacturer.

Determining Compensation

Various factors can contribute to the overall value of your claim. You do not want to collect less than you could because you were unaware of how to account for all your relevant losses. We can provide you guidance here. Our New York City Uber accident attorneys can thoroughly review all the significant details of your accident to accurately determine what type of settlement would be appropriate.

Handling Administrative Tasks

Pursuing compensation after a New York City Uber accident can require completing a variety of different tasks. You may need to provide evidence showing the amount of compensation you are asking for is justified. You may also need to file a demand letter, correspond with insurance adjusters, and possibly coordinate with doctors and other medical professions to acquire proper documentation.

After being injured in a car accident, your main focus should be on your recovery. At Shulman & Hill, we can handle the various tasks the claims process involves.

Negotiating

Any insurance company responsible for compensating you after a New York City Uber accident may strive to pay out as little as they can justify. Like any other business, many insurance companies may strive to protect themselves financially above all else.

This is perhaps the most critical reason you need assistance from a qualified New York City Uber accident lawyer. We are prepared to negotiate on your behalf for a fair settlement. While settling for an appropriate payout is the main goal, we can go to court to pursue damages if an insurance company does not make a fair offer.
