Santa Ana Uber Accident Attorney

When you are without transport of your own and need to get somewhere lacking in public transit options, a cab is perhaps the most obvious and most appropriate method of doing so. Of course, the convenience of traveling by cab comes at a premium, rendering them unaffordable for many people to use regularly. With the aim of reducing the cost of using a cab-type service, Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick founded Uber in San Francisco, heralding the birth of the now-popular concept of ridesharing. Ridesharing services, such as Uber, work by allowing those with a vehicle to connect 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. Of course, just as with any other vehicle on the road, Ubers can be involved in accidents, potentially leaving you with serious injuries or significant property damage.

Should this happen to you, a Uber accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg is ready and willing to provide the expert legal representation you need whilst pursuing the compensation and damages you are entitled to.

What to Do If You Are Involved in an Uber Accident

There are a few different scenarios that can be considered an Uber accident, each of which can be expertly handled by our Santa Ana lawyers. Perhaps you have been struck by an Uber driver while walking or crossing at a crosswalk, struck by an Uber driver whilst driving your own car, or maybe you have been a passenger in an Uber when it was involved in a collision with another vehicle. We have a proven track record of successfully handling each type of accident, and are committed to putting our expertise to work for you.

To avoid adversely impacting the outcome of your own lawsuit, here is what you should do immediately after a Santa Ana Uber accident:

  • 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
