An Attorney Can Help You Maximize Your Settlement or Award

The assistance of an attorney can go a long way when it comes to maximizing the compensation an Uber accident victim can recover. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and they do so by paying out as little as possible. In addition, whether you are dealing with an insurance company in negotiations or court, you will need to present evidence of your injuries and other losses. A lawyer who is familiar with personal injury litigation can collect evidence of your losses on your behalf and present it in a way that will maximize your chances of obtaining the largest settlement or award available by law.

We Help Victims of Ride-Sharing Accidents Obtain the Compensation to Which they are Entitled

Uber Accident Lawyer Miami

Ubers and drivers who work for other ride-sharing services make thousands of trips each day in Miami and the South Florida area as a whole. Many people who fly into Fort Lauderdale or Miami International forgo renting a car and instead rely on Uber drivers to get them to destinations like Miami Beach, South Beach, Aventura Mall, and Brickell.

With this much Uber activity in the area, Uber drivers inevitably are going to get in serious accidents, potentially injuring themselves, their passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and other motorists who happen to cross their paths.

When an Uber driver causes a serious accident, victims are typically entitled to compensation for the losses they have sustained as a result of the wreck. To recover compensation, however, they need to establish their damages, either to theinsurance company or a court. This involves the presentation of evidence, which may include medical records, pay stubs, repair bills, and the opinion of experts regarding future earning potential or the pain and suffering the victims experienced.

Under Florida law, people who are hurt in accidents caused by the negligence of others are entitled to compensation for both their economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses involve a direct, monetary loss that money can compensate—things like medical expenses, lost income, or damage or loss of value to property. Non-economic losses, on the other hand, are subjective and include emotional distress, inconvenience, and pain and suffering.

Not surprisingly, non-economic damages are much more difficult to establish than economic damages. While you can go to the insurance company with your medical bills and show it how much it owes, how do you put a monetary value on the fact that you are in constant pain or were forced to miss Thanksgiving because you could not travel?

Fortunately, the lawyers of Uber Car Accident Law are here to help. We know how to maximize the compensation our clients deserve in Uber accident claims. In addition, if the insurance company isn’t willing to negotiate in good faith, we will not hesitate to take them to court.

Here are some of the damages that people injured in Uber accidents commonly seek.

Medical Expenses

Motor vehicle accidents have the potential to result in extremely serious injuries, including broken bones, serious soft tissue injuries, dislocations, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Medical expenses in even minor car accident cases can swell into the thousands of dollars. In more serious cases, victims may suffer from a lifetime of disabilities and medical bills.

Lost Income

Many people whom Uber drivers injure in accidents are unable to return to work for weeks or even months. This results in significant lost income. Florida law may entitle victims who develop long-term disabilities and never return to work to a lifetime of lost income. Victims need the assistance of an experienced attorney to provide evidence of how much they would have made during the course of their careers, accounting for issues like regular raises and promotions.

Physical and Emotional Pain and Suffering

Car accident victims often experience significant physical pain and emotional suffering during their recoveries. These damages include not just physical pain, but also fear, anxiety, grief, worry, and insomnia that many car accident victims experience. The many ways to prove pain and suffering include medical records, testimony from friends and family as to how an injury has hurt your life, or proof of treatment by a mental health professional.

Property Damage

Accidents with Uber drivers often result in significant damage to property, especially if an Uber driver hit your vehicle. An Uber passenger whose personal property was damaged in a collision could likely claim property damage as well.

Lost Enjoyment of Life

Car accident victims are often unable to do the things they enjoyed before the accident—sometimes permanently. Florida law makes lost enjoyment of life a compensable loss that often entitles victims to significant compensation. For example, an avid surfer whose leg injury renders him unable to surf for a year could likely obtain compensation for lost enjoyment of life.
