What to Expect from an Uber Accident Settlement
When you’re hurt in an auto accident, you’ll need compensation that meets your needs and covers the expenses and losses that you’ve suffered because of the accident. However, you may not be sure what comes next when the other person is an Uber driver at work.
When you’re hurt, talk to your lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP about what to expect from an Uber accident settlement. You’ll need to know what options you have and how you can seek out your full settlement amount.
Who Pays for Uber Accidents?
After an accident involving an Uber driver, you’ll need to know who’s responsible for paying for your injuries. You deserve compensation for the expenses and losses you’ve suffered, including when you were a passenger in an Uber accident.
Unfortunately, suing Uber directly may not get the results you want. The company lists itself as an app provider, not as a rideshare company. Because of this distinction, you’ll typically need to file a claim against the Uber driver.
Fortunately, the driver should have a commercial insurance policy that meets your needs after an accident. If you’re a passenger, this insurance policy could cover up to one million dollars in damages. You’ll need to contact your NYC attorney about your options for a settlement and what your claim is worth.
Getting Your Accident Settlement
Once you’ve determined who to file your claim with, you’ll need to contact the insurance company and let them know that an accident has happened. Once you do, the insurance company will begin determining what your claim is worth. That may include reviewing the injuries you’ve suffered and the damage to any valuable property in the accident.
Unfortunately, they may not immediately offer you the full settlement you deserve for your claim. As such, it’s important to have an accident attorney on your side during this time. You’ll need someone who can review the damages you’ve suffered because of your accident, which may include the following:
- Medical care costs
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
