‘Should I Contact Uber After Any Uber Accident?’ Not Really, Attorneys Say

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Uber and Lyft Accident

Not all types of Uber accidents are created equal, though the occurrence of accidents involving ridesharing companies and their independent contractors has been on the rise in California and all across the U.S.

Despite this, Uber is notoriously unreliable at compensating both its drivers and passengers in case of an accident. So does it even make sense to contact Uber after an Uber accident?

Or, in other words, when should you notify Uber about an accident, and when you should not? This is the question we asked our Los Angeles Uber accident attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg.

Uber, $1 million coverage, and liability

Even though Uber promises to provide $1 million in coverage per accident, it is tremendously difficult to access at least a portion of that amount if you have been injured in an Uber accident or your family member died during an Uber ride.

Uber claims that cares about its every driver and passenger, but if you look at Uber’s track record of being involved in litigation, you might be surprised to find out that this over $70 billion-worth ridesharing company avoids paying any expenses and escapes liability in many cases, especially when the plaintiffs are not represented by a lawyer.

Although we cannot change the rules of the game Uber plays with its drivers and passengers, our experienced Uber accident attorney in Los Angeles can actually help you fight hard and recover compensation on your behalf.

When you should NOT call Uber after an accident

By now, you probably think that contacting Uber after an accident is pointless. But it is not. In fact, whether or not you should call Uber after an Uber accident in Los Angeles or elsewhere in California will depend on the nature of your particular accident.

If you have been in an Uber accident involving only vehicle damage, Uber will not have to get involved, as your insurance company and the other motorist’s insurance company will be able to cover the damages.

However, contacting insurance companies on your own without getting a consultation from a Los Angeles Uber accident attorney first might not be the best decision, as insurers all across California are notoriously inclined to reduce the value of compensation by conducting an unfair and biased investigation or employing other dishonest tactics.

When you SHOULD call Uber after an accident

In the event of an Uber accident that involves injuries or wrongful death, you should always contact Uber. And while you are at it, find one of the best Uber accident lawyers in California who will spearhead your case and do whatever it takes to get you the compensation you truly deserve.

Hiring a skilled attorney after an Uber accident is always a crucial factor in winning your case. Not only will your lawyer negotiate directly with Uber, Lyft, or other ridesharing companies involved, but will also collect sufficient evidence proving the severity of your injuries and establishing Uber’s liability in order to recover the maximum compensation for you.

Do not let Uber escape liability in your case. Get legal advice from our attorneys at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg. Call 310-997-0904 or complete this contact form for a free case evaluation.
