San Fernando Valley
Uber Accident Attorney

San Fernando Valley Uber Accident

Ride-sharing has become an extremely popular, accommodating, and affordable option in public transportation. Uber states that their drivers average 5.5 million rides daily. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic deaths increased by almost three percent nationally after the launch of Uber and other ride-sharing services. If you are involved in an accident while Ubering, contact The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg in San Fernando Valley at 310-997-0904 for a free consultation. Speak with an experienced uber crash attorney who can guide you through the myriad of insurance obstacles to get you compensation for any trauma inflicted upon you as a rider.

Causes Of Uber Accidents

For the average licensed driver, the potential for supplemental income while driving for Uber is a huge incentive. According to Uber, the service has over two million drivers employed globally and roughly 750,000 drivers in the United States as of 2017. Typical requirements for Uber drivers include:

  • Must be 21 years old
  • Have access to a four-door vehicle
  • Vehicle must be no more than 10 years old
  • Must have in-state auto insurance with the driver’s name on the policy
  • Valid in-state drivers license
  • Vehicle must have current registration and in-state license plate
  • Must be able to pass a background and driving records check

While the availability for ride-sharing lowers the risk of accidents due to drunk and impaired driving, the ever-increasing demand for Ubering has also created more congestion on U.S. roadways. Uber traffic accidents are not typically caused by anything other than what a private vehicle accident may be attributed to.

  • Drivers get distracted in traffic congestion while they try to search for their passengers to pick up
  • Drivers are distracted while paying more attention to their GPS for directions
  • Driver fatigue

What To Do If In An Uber Accident

If you are in an accident while riding as an Uber passenger, you should document the scene as you would if you were the driver involved after emergency services have been notified. Write down names and contact info for witnesses, the driver’s information (which is usually already available to the person who has ordered the Uber via the phone application), and consult an attorney. You could face hefty medical bills for the treatment of injuries sustained during the accident and lose income from missing work. Contact Law Offices of Howard Kornberg in San Fernando Valley at 310-997-0904 to speak with an attorney or visit our website at www.kornberglawfirm.com to request a free consultation. Trial Lawyer Howard Craig Kornberg knows how to help you obtain justified compensation for your pain and trauma.

What You Should Know

Whether or not the accident is at the fault of the Uber driver or another vehicle, all Uber drivers are required to have current valid insurance on their vehicles. In addition, Uber carries its own insurance policy for riders in the amount of one million dollars per accident and one million dollars of uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Contact The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg in San Fernando Valley if you are involved in an Uber accident. Let our expert litigators ensure you get the maximum legal compensation for any related injuries or trauma.
