Cabs have long been the transport of choice for those who are either without their own transport or have plans which do not allow for either driving your own car or using public transit. Of course, the convenience of traveling by cab comes at a relatively hefty cost, making it unrealistic for most people to use cabs as a regular method of travel. Recognizing the gap in the market for a convenient transport option that was more affordable, Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick founded Uber in San Francisco, marking the conception of the now ever-increasingly popular ridesharing app. Ridesharing services, such as Uber, work by connecting drivers with those in their area seeking rides, providing the driver with some extra income, and the passenger with a convenient yet affordable means of reaching their destination. Despite its critics, there is no arguing with the logic of launching such services, nor the fact that it works. Of course, nothing is without its risks and, just as with any other vehicle, Ubers can become involved in accidents, potentially leaving you with serious injuries.
When you have been seriously injured in a car collision, an Inglewood Uber accident attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg is ready to provide the expert legal representation you need whilst pursuing the compensation you deserve.
What Should I Do (And Not Do) After an Inglewood Uber Accident?
There are several potential types of Uber accidents, each of which can be expertly handled by our Inglewood attorneys. To provide some examples, you may be struck by an Uber driver while walking or crossing at a crosswalk, had an accident caused by an Uber driver while in your own vehicle, or maybe you have been a passenger in an Uber when it was involved in a smash. Our uber lawyers have a proven track record of successfully handling each type of accident, and are committed to putting our expertise to work for you when you have been hurt through the negligence of another.
When you have been affected by an Inglewood Uber accident, our attorneys advise that you:
- Take photographs of your injuries, damage to your vehicle, and the accident scene in general, if you can do so. Taking notes can also prove invaluable during the legal process
- Inform emergency services of the incident, ensuring you request a copy of any police report
- Avoid giving a written statement to anyone other than law enforcement officers, without having your lawyer present
- Seek medical attention as soon as the police have cleared you to leave the scene. It’s important not to leave before then, as you could run the risk of being charged with hit and run, depending on the circumstances
