New York Uber Car Accident Lawyers
An Experienced New York Uber Accident Lawyer Can Help You Recover Fair Compensation

Prior to ride-sharing, the majority of accidents in New York occurred when two or more individuals were in the same vehicle. Now, people in New York utilize Uber, which can result in accidents. It is difficult to determine who is at fault in a ride-sharing accident because it might be the company, the driver, or someone else who was also driving. 


If you were injured by an Uber driver or someone else on the road, you could file a lawsuit against the driver or the ride-sharing firm. Accident victims should not attempt to figure out these intricate concerns on their own. You do not need to know how to handle this scenario. Instead, call a reputable accident lawyer who can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. 


Why you need an Uber Accident Lawyer


If Uber causes an accident, you may be entitled to compensation. However, getting a claim compensated by the company without the assistance of an attorney can tax the average person. While you may not know how to decide who is responsible or handle the legal or insurance aspects of a dispute, an attorney handles such problems on a daily basis. 


Additionally, the more parties involved, the more complex your case becomes. This might involve an Uber driver, drivers of other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and many insurance companies. Each of these groups will oppose you and attempt to prevent you from obtaining your owed funds. 


Your attorney has the expertise to represent you in court, investigate the Uber driver and company, seek restitution from all culpable parties, and coordinate a prompt insurance reimbursement. However, Uber must abide by certain guidelines; if they do not, someone must ensure they understand the law and handle the problem fairly.


Who is responsible for an Uber car accident?


New York’s negligence statute permits you to file a lawsuit against anyone who contributed to a car accident, even an Uber driver. In the event of an accident involving Uber, the at-fault person may not be required to pay compensation; rather, the corporation may be held liable. Therefore, it is possible that a range of individuals and situations are financially responsible. 


Understand Uber maintains insurance coverage that can be utilized to recover expenses incurred in the aftermath of an accident involving an Uber vehicle. In addition, if you have been involved in an accident with Uber, you may have a legal claim for monetary compensation. The New York personal injury lawyers at our company may help you better understand your rights.


Common causes of Uber car accidents


The major causes of motor accidents, including those using Uber, are human error and negligence. Even though evidence suggests that Uber drivers are more likely to be involved in collisions than other motorists, this does not imply that they are always at fault. Frequent causes of accidents involving Uber drivers in New York City include the following: 


  • Excessive velocity 

  • Distracted driving and mobile phone use while driving 

  • Following too closely to another car 

  • Not yielding the right-of-way to oncoming traffic is a violation. 

  • Changing lanes or passing in a hazardous manner 

  • Fatigued driving 

  • Aggressive driving 

  • Highway defects 

  • Car flaws


Common injuries from Uber car accidents


Because Uber is a large organization with dozens of attorneys defending them, you need an attorney who speaks their language to represent you. In order to avoid a settlement or negative publicity, they want to prove that your injuries were not caused by the Uber automobile accident. These types of injuries may heal over time, or they may cause the accident victim trouble for the remainder of his or her life. 


Here are the typical injuries sustained in an Uber car accident: 


  • Traumatic brain injuries 

  • Spinal cord injuries 

  • Paralysis 

  • Whiplash 

  • Back injuries 

  • Concussions 

  • Eye injuries 

  • Soft tissue damage 

  • Broken bones 

  • Lost limbs 

  • Burn injuries 

  • Internal hemorrhage 

  • Unjustified death


The New York statute of limitations for Uber car accidents


You may be eligible for compensation if a negligent Uber driver causes you harm. But you will need to move quickly. Typically, you have three years after an automobile accident to launch a lawsuit. You may lose a substantial amount of money if you do not bring a case within three years after the incident.
