Murrieta Uber Accidents Attorneys
Our experienced accident attorneys help you hold reckless drivers and the companies they work for responsible for your injuries.
Taking an Uber is a convenient and cost-effective way to get around Murrieta and the surrounding Riverside County area. While credited as being safer than driving in certain situations, the fact is that accidents and injuries involving ridesharing services have become increasingly common. At Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP, we provide the professional legal representation victims need in these cases. Our experienced Murrieta Uber accident attorneys hold at-fault drivers and the companies they work for responsible, so you can get the compensation you need to recover in a claim.
Common Causes of Uber Accidents in Cases We Represent
Shortly after being introduced more than a decade ago, Uber was credited with reducing traffic congestion and the number of drunk drivers on the road. Unfortunately, while the overall number of car accidents did decrease for several years, they have steadily begun climbing again. According to MIT’s Technology Review, ridesharing services such as Uber may be to blame. Traffic safety experts say the increase in the overall number of Uber drivers on the road and problems within ridesharing companies make crashes and collisions more likely to happen.
At Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP, we represent injured victims of Uber accidents, helping them get the compensation they need to recover from their injuries. Common causes of Uber accidents cases we handle include:
- Reckless behavior on the part of Uber drivers, such as speeding, running red lights, and driving distracted or while impaired;
- Company policies, which fail to properly screen drivers, monitor their schedules, or punish them for traffic infractions;
- The actions of other motorists or ridesharing passengers, which make Uber accidents more likely to occur;
Our Murrieta Uber Accident Attorneys Protect Your Rights in Filing a Claim
When you suffer injuries in an Uber accident, you are entitled to compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs you incur as a result. While Uber promotes a $1 million insurance policy designed to protect both drivers and passengers, the fact is that claims are often denied or downplayed. Common reasons include:
- Disputes over the cause of the accident;
- Disputes over the extent of your injuries;
- Disputes regarding the amount of compensation you need to recover;
- Disputes over whether the company, the driver, or others involved are liable and required to pay.
