Financial Recovery For Victims Of Uber Car Accidents In Los Angeles
These days, Uber drivers are everywhere in Los Angeles. But not all of them are safe and careful motorists when motorcycle riders are nearby. If you get hit by a negligent Uber driver’s vehicle, you are at serious risk of permanent disability. Tragically, many riders have been killed in collisions caused by negligent Uber drivers.
If you or a family member has been injured by an Uber driver, Scott J. Corwin can help you take legal action to obtain maximum compensation. Your claim will be handled by a professional litigator with extensive experience in representing injured motorcyclists.
The Three Types of Car Accidents Involving Rideshare
Type 1: Struck by an Uber Driver / Vehicle
The Uber driver is negligent, and the injured victim is driving or a passenger in a separate vehicle, car, motorcycle, or is a pedestrian or bicyclist on the road. The Uber company carries liability insurance so the victim and their attorney pursues medical expenses and recovery from the Ride Share company and driver. Most ride share companies now carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance coverage.
Type 2: Uber Driver Crashes
The Uber / rideshare driver is negligent, and the injured victim is a passenger inside of the ride share vehicle. Once again, the Uber company carries liability insurance so the victim and their attorney pursues medical expenses and recovery from the Ride Share company and driver. Uber and most ride share companies now carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance coverage.
Type 3: Struck While Riding in Uber Vehicle
The injured victim is a paying passenger taking an Uber and their car is hit by another vehicle and the rideshare driver is not at fault. As the injured victim is a passenger in the ride share, the fault and claim is against the third-party vehicle. There are situations where the at-fault driver carries no insurance or is under-insured. Medical and financial recovery is still possible as most ride share companies now carry $1,000,000 in uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM).
Uber Drivers And Negligent Behavior
Though they are professional drivers, people who drive for Uber do not always act with sufficient care. For example, an Uber driver may become distracted by the Uber app on their phone, the radio or interacting with their passengers. Or they may simply fail to watch for other cars or motorcycles when changing lanes or making turns.
