UBER Accident Lawyer

Have you been in an accident with an UBER, Lyft, or another rideshare service? Whether you are a passenger, driver, or pedestrian, you may be eligible for compensation. Rideshare services are convenient and popular, a secure option to return home after a night out. But, even the most skilled rideshare driver can end up in an accident. If you’ve been hurt in a rideshare accident, an experienced Lyft and UBER accident lawyer can be of assistance.

Whether you were injured as a passenger in an Uber or hit by an Uber driver, you didn’t ask for this injury. Due to your injury, you might be dealing with medical costs, incapability to work, long recovery, and many other obstacles. Belal Hamideh can help. 

An experienced attorney, he’s helped so many to recover the compensation they deserve for having been in a rideshare accident. Now, he can do the same for you. 

The Compensation from an UBER Accident

The factors determining the value of your accident include the severity of your injury, its impact on your earning capacity, your recovery time (as well as your possibility of recovery), the immediate and future medical care you may require, and more. 

These are your “economic damages.” California law allows you to recoup compensation for economic damages as well as non-economic damages.

The latter include intangibles like pain and suffering, changes you had to make due to the accident, inability to partake in activities you previously enjoyed, emotional distress, losses related to disability, physical impairment (even permanent disfigurement), and perhaps even a decrease in your enjoyment of life. 

We aggressively represent our clients to ensure they receive maximum compensation for all that they’ve been through. 

The Challenges of Suing UBER 

UBER accident victims have attempted to sue Uber directly when they were injured in accidents involving reckless and/or negligent rideshare drivers. However, UBER merely says those drivers are independent contractors, not employees. 

But, due to the passage of California Assembly Bill 5, that is now “up in the air”. The best strategy is to contact an UBER accident attorney well-versed in such matters to help you determine the right party to sue.

In California, the legal standard for negligence includes if the defendant owed the plaintiff (you) a duty of care, if the defendant breached that duty through their negligence, and if the defendant’s negligence was the main cause of your injuries. Examples of negligence include drunk driving, texting while driving, speeding, violating traffic laws, or just not paying attention at the time of the crash.

When Should I File My Uber Claim?

In California, you have a two-year window from the date of your rideshare incident to file a claim. However, if a state, municipal, or federal vehicle was involved in your accident in any capacity, then you have a six-month window from the incident date to file a personal injury claim. The earlier you consult a lawyer who can assist, the quicker you receive the compensation you’re owed.
