Birmingham Uber Accident Lawyer
Getting a ride across the city with Uber can make getting around easy—but it may also mean a complicated accident. If you have questions about how to seek compensation for your crash, contact a Birmingham Uber accident attorney for help.
Uber and other rideshare services make traveling around the city fast, easy, and affordable. Unfortunately, this mode of transportation can be far more dangerous than taking a taxi or bus. Uber drivers are independent contractors with limited insurance. And as a for-profit company, Uber may try to avoid paying for your expenses.
Where can you go from there? Call a Birmingham Uber accident lawyer as soon as possible. It can be tough to get the settlement you need, but with the Henry Dailey Law Firm on your side, you can expect results.
When Is Uber Financially Responsible?
Working with Uber after an accident can be difficult. After all, while the company does cover drivers with insurance up to $1 million, it often puts the liability of the accident on the driver, making it more difficult to go straight to the company’s large insurance policy.
In recent years, however, the company has expanded its responsibility as more states require rideshare-specific insurance. That way, if you’re in an accident, you should be covered. While there have been some successful cases against the company itself, Uber may try to direct lawsuits to the driver at fault, rather than the company.
An Uber accident lawyer in Birmingham can help you determine whether your case should be the responsibility of the driver or Uber itself. While it may be difficult to contact Uber and begin the process of getting a settlement or filing a claim, we can help get you started.
The Compensation You Deserve
Winning fair compensation for you is important to our firm, and if you have trouble getting a settlement from Uber’s insurance company or the driver’s, you may need to bring your case to court. Fighting a large company may be intimidating, but it may be a necessary step on your road to recovery.
But first, you have to know how much your claim is worth. Severe injuries, such as spinal injuries, will add several economic damages to you case, on top of the mental anguish you’ll experience. Every case will be different, but the following are some of the most common damages tied to Birmingham Uber crashes:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Mental trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
