If you’re serious about seeking compensation for injuries sustained in an Uber accident, Albert Abkarian & Associates is eager to hear about your case. Another lawyer may have informed you that uninsured or underinsured Uber drivers cannot be held accountable for their irresponsibility, but that’s not the case. If you were injured as the direct result of an Uber driver’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing, you have a claim, and you need to speak with an Uber accident attorney in San Fernando Valley immediately. You have a limited time to seek justice under the law.
Can I Deal Directly With the Insurance Company?
It’s not advisable to speak with the Uber driver’s insurance company- they’ll typically make a low monetary offer that they hope you’ll take because of your situation. You’ll get the most compensation for your injuries and loss of revenue when you hire an experienced Uber accident attorney in San Fernando Valley- like Albert Abkarian & Associates. Speak with us by phone to discuss the details of your case- the call is free, and there is no obligation to hire us. We can offer free legal advice and recommend the best course of action to take regarding your case.
Who is Ultimately Responsible For an Uber Accident?
Uber accidents are complicated because often more than one party is responsible for the injuries and damages sustained during the accident. For this reason, you’ll need to hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who understands how to seek the highest allowable compensation under the law. At Albert Abkarian & Associates, we’ll untangle the legalities, safeguard liability, and maintain the possibility of filing suit against the following parties:
- The Uber driver
- The company itself
- The Insurance company
- The driver of another vehicle involved
What About the Uninsured Driver?
It’s a misconception that an accident incurring an uninsured Uber driver leaves injury victims with no way to seek compensation in court. The fact is that the Uber company’s own insurance policy will cover accidents involving injured Uber passengers as well as drivers and passengers in another vehicle(s)- up to $1 million of liability coverage per accident and $1 million of uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits for each accident. Your injuries are covered- you just need the right Uber accident attorney in San Fernando Valley to handle your case.
Call an Attorney
You’ll hear a lot of erroneous information from well-meaning friends and family members who simply don’t know the law; that’s why you need to call us to find out exactly how the law will protect you after an Uber accident. Uber categorizes their drivers as ‘independent contractors’ working for the company, thereby trying to create the illusion that their drivers are responsible financially for accidents- but that’s just not the case. As we move forward with your claim, we’ll always look at the possibility of suing Uber directly in order to ensure you are justly compensated for injuries, loss of work, and medical bills.
