How Do Uber Accident Claims Work in Los Angeles?

Uber is a rideshare service that has slowly taken over public transportation over the last few years. Unlike a few years ago, hopping inside of a stranger’s car is completely normal and widely accepted throughout our country. However, with the innovation brought upon us by services such as Uber, many other problems have been created.

Uber drivers can get distracted while driving just like anyone else. Almost anyone can become an Uber driver and this causes many more severe car accident injuries as a result of the lax hiring process. Filing a car accident claim is already a difficult task with normal car accidents, but Uber car accident is even more complicated.

Who is Responsible for your LA Uber Accident?

In a normal car accident situation, you’ll pursue compensation from the driver’s insurance company. However, with Uber accident claims, you deal with Uber’s insurance, as well. Uber drivers are also independent contractors, which means that Uber can transfer all blame to their drivers, depending on the situation. For this reason, it’s extremely difficult to directly file a claim against Uber itself.

Damages in Your Los Angeles Uber Claim

The possible damages in a typical Uber accident are similar to a normal car accident claim. Damages such as medical bills and lost wages are commonplace in an uber accident claim case. You can also include non-financial damages, such as pain and suffering. An LA uber accident attorney can help analyze your damages.
