If you were injured while riding in a Uber cab or other ride-sharing service, you are entitled to full compensation for the damages you have suffered. Unfortunately, ride-sharing services are covered by proprietary insurance policies with hidden exclusions, limits and other traps for the unwary.

Do I Need An Attorney’s Help?
Most people are fair-minded and expect others to treat them fairly. Unfortunately, to an insurance company, the “fair” thing to do is to pay you as little money as possible. If it can find a way to avoid responsibility for your losses, it will do so.
In the aftermath of your accident, the Uber cab insurance company may provide you with assurances that it will investigate your claim and take care of you. Over time, however, things can go wrong that will make it harder to obtain the compensation you deserve. Here are just a few examples:
- Uber may deny responsibility for the accident, and you may lack the evidence you need to prove liability.
- You may fail to follow up on medical treatment, and as a result you will not have medical documentation of your injury.
- Uber may make you a lowball offer, and you may be desperate enough to take it.
- Your claim may be denied based on a limit or exclusion that you didn’t know about.
The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the harder it will be to collect and preserve the evidence you need to prove your claim in court.
