Uber and other ride sharing services are becoming increasingly popular in cities across the country. As a result, more and more people are electing to take an Uber to work or after a night out on the town. Although seen as a safe way to get around, Ubers are vehicles like any other and have their share of consequences.
The increased popularity of Uber also means that accidents involving Uber and other rideshare companies have increased as well. In their immediate aftermath, accidents are never easy to manage. Fortunately, a Delray Beach accident lawyer can help.
Liability in an Uber Accident in Delray Beach
In the state of Florida, a unique law positions Uber drivers as independent contractors. This law essentially means that, if you get in an accident with Uber, it is harder to prove Uber’s liability. If you’ve been victimized by an Uber accident, this can make for added complications in pursuing the compensation you may be entitled to. As a result, you may want to contact Elstein Legal for a free case consultation.
A lawyer understands the legal system and will use the facts from the case to help you get the compensation to which you may be entitled. You shouldn’t have to go through the legal system alone, especially with a case as potentially complicated as an Uber accident case. An Uber accidents law firm in Delray Beach will ensure that you have someone on your side.
Pursuing Damages After a Delray Beach Uber Accident
Due to the independent contractor situation, pursuing damages in a Delray Beach Uber accident can be a bit difficult. Although you may save money in the immediate future by addressing the events of an accident on your own, you could be selling yourself short in the long run.
A Delray Beach Uber accident lawyer can help you:
- Review your damages to decipher how much compensation you may be entitled to.
- Investigate your case and identify all negligent parties eligible to provide compensation.
- Address the insurance company in question to negotiate a fair settlement.
Insurance and Uber
Fortunately, every Uber driver needs to have insurance in order to drive for them. The insurance company will have lawyers that will fight to ensure that they won’t have to pay more than the bare minimum. You may be tempted to take the first deal that an insurance company offers you. However, working with Elstein Legal can help you dive deeper. For instance, you may be entitled to compensation for non-financial damages such as pain and suffering.
