Uber is quickly changing the way travel happens. More than 160,000 people drive for Uber, and over one billion rides have been taken in 400 cities nationwide. It’s an average of one million rides a day, with 50,000 new drivers added monthly. With those numbers, it is easy to understand why Uber auto accident claims are on the rise. When hurt in any accident, it is imperative that you hire a car accident attorney quickly. And with Uber accidents, the help of a highly trained team is needed to navigate the muddy waters of dealing with such a large company.
Seeking HelpWhen dealing with Uber, it is often difficult to get a hold of the company directly. Uber does business on an app-based server, using independent contractors as opposed to employees. Further, they define themselves as a technology provider, not a transportation company, which further removes the company from any fallout related to Uber auto accident claims. The attorneys at Alexander Shunnarah & Associates understand the intricate details of accidents and injuries in which Uber is involved. They work with each case independently to ensure that clients are able to receive the full extent of compensation. Uber may be notoriously difficult to communicate with from a victim's perspective, but an auto accident attorney often has better access to the company than the general public does. Usually, those involved in an accident with an Uber driver are entitled to compensation from both the company and the independent contractor’s personal auto insurance. Without the proper representation, clients could miss out on a large compensation claim or be left completely in the dark trying to deal with Uber themselves.
Working the StepsAt the end of the day, Uber auto accident claims start very similarly to any other auto accident. Work through the following steps to get started, and request help from a car accident attorney quickly and efficiently. - Stay at the scene and make sure to check on all of the passengers or drivers involved to ensure safety. - Obtain help from local authorities and keep all reports. - Complete a through exchange of information and jot down all license plate numbers to allow for further verification by investigators at a later date, if needed. - Take pictures and seek medical attention. It is extremely important that a complete record of care and damages are given. - Contact your insurance company and speak with your attorney. Do not try to handle Uber auto accident claims on your own. Work with a trusted auto accident attorney to get the legal representation you need to seek the compensation you deserve.

Catastrophic injuries are life-changing events. They can happen during the course of regular life, or they can be the result of a crime, a large-scale accident, or a workplace injury. Often, the results of these injuries do much more than cause pain to the one injured. The residual effects of a catastrophic injury can change the course of the lives of loved ones, as they are left to handle the issues that result due to needed care. A personal injury attorney can help those injured in a traumatic event work through all of the issues associated with their injury and negotiate the compensation needed to maintain a high level of care throughout life.
Steps to Take
Catastrophic injuries often involve the head and spine. These injuries are debilitating and costly, with far-reaching consequences. Lifelong cost of care for those suffering from traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury can easily approach the million-dollar mark. This care goes long past hospitalization and can include rehabilitation services and the use of specialized medical equipment, medication or devices, as well as home or vehicle modifications and caregiving allowances.
Future health care costs are difficult to argue in these cases. Without the help of personal injury law firms, those injured, as well as their families, are left to suffer without the needed funds for care. Insurance companies are eager to settle these cases because large lump sums seem inviting to families who are experiencing the realities of high levels of care. These sums, however, are most likely far below what will be needed to maintain quality of life for a patient who has undergone a traumatic injury and event.
Working with a Lawyer
Personal injury cases require meticulous documentation and the help of a compassionate personal injury attorney. Alexander Shunnarah & Associates has worked with a number of people involved in catastrophic injury cases. Our law office knows that the legal aspects of the case are often put on the back burner by family members who are working for a health care solution and looking only at immediate needs.
With the help of an Alexander Shunnarah & Associates personal injury attorney, your claim will receive the attention and compensation needed to move forward with the least amount of interruptions. Call today learn more.
