Uber Accidents: The Newest Kind of Insurance Claims for Pasadena and Beyond
In a relatively short time, Uber and its competitors have become the new norm for passenger rides in and around Pasadena and Los Angeles County. As personal injury attorneys at Manibog Law, we’ve begun to see more passengers and even drivers themselves filing insurance claims as a result of an Uber accident. And sadly, just because it’s ride-for-hire does not mitigate the extent of any physical injuries received, or the necessity of having to challenge the meager compensation sometimes offered to the victims of such a collision or traffic accident.
When you’ve been in an Uber accident, whether as a passenger or a driver, healing from your injuries should be your first priority. Unfortunately, Uber and car insurance companies have other agendas, simply because they’re for-profit entities interested in preserving their bottom line. Despite whatever your doctor or other care providers are recommending for your recovery, many times the victim filing the insurance claim will be met with skepticism, red tape and outright stonewalling in response, however legitimate the injury. Whether involving an Uber passenger or Uber driver, these companies are invested in doing everything they can to avoid paying the full amount on these claims. It’s just business, but it can leave the accident victim humiliated, angry, and most significantly, without the financial resources necessary to get well.
Don’t let this happen to you. If you’re in the Pasadena or Los Angeles area and have suffered an injury as a result of being a passenger on an Uber ride (or while working as a driver), give us a call to schedule your free consultation. Remember, you pay nothing unless we win your claim, and even then, we will take only a prearranged percentage of your cash award.
The fact is that most of these companies are banking against any accident victim vigorously pursuing an insurance claim. And yet, most ordinary people don’t want to get involved in lawsuits to seek what they are owed. “I’m not that sort of person,” you might say, or “I don’t want to make a big deal about this.” Few outside the legal profession appreciate that this is exactly what the insurance companies count on. After all, how could they possibly make money if they had to pay on every legitimate accident claim they received? For that reason, their agents and employees are carefully trained to make the process as difficult as possible, hoping the accident victim will ultimately decide going after full compensation is not worth the effort.
