Uber drivers and other rideshare drivers often behave aggressively on the roads around Cleveland. Many of these drivers assume that the quicker they reach a destination, the sooner they can pick up another fare and earn more money.
When an Uber driver runs a red light or speeds, that motorist can cause a serious car accident. Sometimes injury victims are passengers or customers in the Uber vehicle, but injury victims can also be occupants of other vehicles, or pedestrians or bicyclists on a nearby sidewalk.
If you were harmed by a negligent Uber driver, let me help you seek the financial compensation you deserve. If an Uber driver is reckless or careless, you may certainly be able to file a car accident lawsuit to get financial compensation for your losses.
Filing an Insurance Claim May Be Your First Step
Assuming the Uber driver was properly insured, your first step for seeking compensation might be filing an auto insurance claim through the Uber driver’s insurer.
Depending upon how the accident happened and where you were at the time of the crash, you may be able to seek compensation through Uber’s insurance policy. That insurance policy typically only applies when an Uber driver has a customer in his or her vehicle at the time of the crash.
If the Uber driver is only on his or her way to pick up a fare, or has recently dropped off a fare, an injury victim will usually have to file a claim through the Uber driver’s insurance. If an Uber driver is underinsured or uninsured, it is time to move on to filing an Uber accident lawsuit.
Filing an Uber Accident Lawsuit
If you cannot obtain adequate compensation through an insurance claim after an Uber accident, it is likely time to file a lawsuit. There are many reasons that an insurance payout may be insufficient. As I mentioned above, maybe the Uber driver was uninsured or underinsured. Or, perhaps, the insurance company will not offer a reasonable settlement to compensate the injured person for the full amount of losses.
I am ready to take your case to court. Once we file an accident lawsuit, I can still negotiate with the at-fault Uber driver to get you a reasonable settlement. If the at-fault driver will not offer a fair settlement, I will take your case all the way to a jury to help you get a jury verdict to cover your losses.
