Uber is a revolutionary ride-hailing or ride-sharing platform and its popularity across the globe is really tremendous. The more than 10 billion trips completed worldwide, and the more than 14 million trips booked and completed each day is testament to its overwhelming popularity. Even commuters in Los Angeles and the rest of California, and even the whole of the United States, are enjoying the convenience Uber rideshares offer.
However, the higher the number of rideshare vehicles added to the roads each day (currently more than 3.9 million drivers in the United States), on top of taxis, public transport and private vehicles, increases the risks of car accidents from occurring. Accidents can be minor and may not result in injuries, but they can also be serious enough to cause heavy or debilitating injuries and in worst scenarios, even fatalities.
So, whether you are an Uber driver or a passenger, getting compensation from the injuries you incurred from a rideshare vehicular accident will need the help of a certified Uber accident lawyer for it to be handled properly and successfully. There are certain intricacies in such vehicular accident cases that would be best handled by a legal expert or professional who knows what they are doing.
For one thing, there are many factors to consider that will make an impact on your personal injury claim. Evidence to support your innocence is one thing, and the extent of your injuries and their impact on your daily lives is another. Injuries can incapacitate you to do your job and earn a living. Your injuries may also need medication, hospital care or even surgery. In such cases, you have no recourse but to get a good Uber lawyer to help you and get proper compensation.
