NYC Uber Car Accident Lawyer

It’s not easy to get fully compensated after being injured in a collision with a rideshare driver. Find out how to handle your case by working with an NYC Uber car accident lawyer.

Using Uber for a ride may be convenient, but there can be many legal challenges if you get injured in a wreck with an Uber driver. If this is your situation, you may be experiencing the frustration that comes with trying to determine who is financially liable for your crash.

An NYC Uber car accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer can represent you and help you recover the compensation your recovery demands.

Rideshare Crash Cases Are Complicated

One of the most difficult aspects of a rideshare accident is determining who is at fault, as it will be important to seek compensation from the appropriate party. Unlike a traditional transportation company, Uber’s drivers are independent contractors rather than direct employees. This can limit the liability of Uber in certain accident scenarios.

A number of different factors and conditions present at the time of the collision will determine whether Uber or the driver is liable. Your NYC Uber car accident lawyer will investigate and determine negligence so that your case can be settled successfully.

When Is Uber Financially Responsible?

To better understand when Uber is financially responsible, it helps to look at several different scenarios:

If an Uber driver had a paying passenger in the car at the time of the crash, Uber would be responsible and their insurance policy would have to provide you with a settlement.

However, if that same driver had dropped off a passenger but was still accepting rides, Uber would be at least partially liable, but a more limited policy would apply.

When drivers are not using the Uber app, they are considered “off-duty” and solely responsible for their own actions. This means that the driver’s personal insurance would be responsible for settling your claim.

Damages for an Uber Auto Wreck

When you come in for your free consultation, we will discuss your injuries and how severe they are. How you were injured in a rideshare accident will influence the amount of money you receive. For example, if you suffered a traumatic brain injury, a disabling injury, or spinal damage, you will be eligible for more compensation than if you broke a bone that healed within a few months.

You will get more for your injury claim if you work with an attorney who can seek compensation for things beyond just your medical bills. This can include compensation for any of the following that apply to your case:

  • Lost wages from taking time off to recover or visit a doctor
  • Lost quality or enjoyment of life
  • Transportation expenses
  • Caregiver wages
  • Repair of your car, motorcycle, or other damaged vehicle
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma

We can also ask the jury to award punitive damages if the behavior that caused you harm was intentional or egregiously negligent.
