Queens Uber Accident Lawyer

While buses and subway systems allow New Yorkers to travel without a car, there are some limitations. As a result, ride-sharing services like Uber have become a popular means of transportation in urban areas like Queens.

However, convenience can come at a cost. It is important to remember that it is still possible for you to be injured in a car accident even when you are not behind the wheel. Every time you ride in an Uber, you are putting your safety in the hands of a stranger who may not be familiar with the Queens area.

Were you or a loved one injured in a Queens Uber accident? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Review your case with a Queens Uber accident attorney at Shulman & Hill to learn more. Our personal injury lawyers in the Queens area can offer the representation you need to optimize your chances of recovering compensation for your losses.

Queens Uber Accidents: Common Causes

There are many potential reasons you could be involved in a Queens Uber accident. Examples include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Aggressive driving
  • Vehicle defects
  • Hazardous road conditions

Uber accidents can also be caused by inexperienced drivers. Although some may assume that an Uber driver is qualified to navigate Queens, reports indicate that the training Uber offers its drivers is not very rigorous. Some Uber drivers may have little experience navigating a busy area like Queens.

Distracted driving is also a problem since Uber drivers rely on notifications and directions from the Uber app to pick up and drop off passengers. While the app is what makes Uber so convenient for passengers, it may also cause distracted driving accidents.

To make matters worse, Ubers have added even more cars to the road. Research shows this surge in traffic has correlated with a surge in car accidents.

Dangerous Intersections in Queens

You can be involved in a Queens Uber accident anywhere in the borough. Some intersections account for the majority of car accidents in Queens. Intersections to be especially cautious of are:

  • Brookville Boulevard and Rockaway Boulevard
  • Atlantic Avenue and Van Wyck Expressway
  • Farmers Boulevard and Rockaway Boulevard
  • Queens Boulevard and Woodhaven Boulevard
  • College Point Boulevard and Roosevelt Avenue

Many Uber drivers may accommodate your request if you ask them to avoid certain intersections or take certain routes. You may want to ask your driver to stay away from these intersections if doing so will not be a major inconvenience.

The Consequences of Being Involved in a Queens Uber Accident

If you are involved in a Queens Uber accident, the severity of your injuries and losses can be wide-ranging. Some individuals are able to walk away from a car accident without any injuries at all. Others can suffer injuries that permanently affect their quality of life. In too many instances, some accidents may be fatal.

If you are ever harmed in a Queens Uber accident, there is a good chance that you may sustain injuries that require costly medical treatment. Your injuries could also force you to stay home from work in order to recover. If you cannot work and earn an income, your ability to pay your medical bills may be limited.

It is also worth considering any non-financial struggles that you may face in the aftermath of a Queens Uber accident. Examples include chronic pain and suffering. Although quantifying these losses may prove more difficult, a Queens Uber accident attorney can help. Our team of Queens attorneys at Shulman & Hill can help ensure these losses are compensated to the fullest extent possible.

How an Uber Accident Law Firm in the Queens Area Can Help

Without legal representation, you may end up settling for less than your claim is worth if you try to work with an insurance company directly. Unfortunately, insurance companies have experienced legal teams that may try to persuade you to take an offer that only accounts for your immediate losses. Our Queens Uber accident lawyers can help you identify these low offers. We can also help in the following key ways:

Reviewing the Full Extent of Your Losses

A qualified personal injury lawyer in the Queens area can review your losses to help ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries. This can involve reviewing your medical bills, assessing your anticipated future medical care, examining your lost earnings, as well as consulting with medical professionals to better understand how your injuries will affect your long-term well-being.

Drafting a Demand Letter

In many cases, the process of pursuing compensation begins by sending a demand letter to the insurer. This letter explains the circumstances of your accident and provides all necessary evidence. It can also articulate the amount of compensation you are willing to accept from a settlement based on the extent and severity of your losses. One of our Queens personal injury attorneys can write this letter on your behalf.

Negotiating

In many instances, insurers would prefer that you work with them directly instead of seeking representation from an experienced personal injury law firm in Queens. When you work alone, some insurance companies feel that you are more likely to accept a low settlement offer.

At Shulman & Hill, we strive to prevent this from happening. If necessary, we can negotiate aggressively on your behalf to help secure a fair settlement offer that accounts for the full extent of your losses. If the insurance company will not agree to a fair settlement, we can go to trial to pursue a favorable verdict.
