Little Rock Uber Accidents
Rideshare Crash Attorneys Fighting for People Injured in Little Rock
In Pulaski County, you may have noticed vehicles with “U” decals on their windshields. More likely than not, these decals are signifying that these vehicles are used by Uber drivers. Uber is one company in the growing rideshare industry that is rapidly dominating the market and making taxis obsolete due to the convenience and simplicity of requesting an Uber, which is done via an app you can download on your smartphone. Of course, just like with taxis, cars, SUVs, trucks, and other motor vehicles, you can become involved in a collision while you are a passenger in an Uber vehicle, and there is also the possibility that you could be driving your vehicle and wind up in a wreck with an Uber car. If you have been injured in an Uber accident, you should contact one of the Little Rock Uber accident lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz today to discuss your case and see how we may be able to assist you.
Recovering Damages After an Uber Accident
Let us say, for example, that you need to get to Verizon Arena, located at 1 Verizon Arena Way, Little Rock, Arkansas 72114, for a concert. You whip out your smartphone and request an Uber to come pick you up. Within minutes, you are picked up by an Uber driver and on your way to the show. On your way there, another driver makes an unsafe lane change and collides into the Uber vehicle you are riding in, causing you to suffer whiplash and head trauma, among other injuries.
Many people involved in an accident such as the one in the previous example are left in a state of shock afterwards, and even when the shock subsides, it is common for most victims to not know who is responsible for their injuries and losses. That is why it is highly recommended that you retain a knowledgeable Uber accident attorney in the Little Rock area with a history of these cases under his or her belt.
Regarding the previous example, if the other driver is deemed to be at fault for the collision, he or she may be held liable for your injuries and losses. In the event that the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, Uber may pay up to $1 million for your losses. The $1 million in liability coverage does not stay in effect in every scenario though, so it is important to consult a car accident lawyer in Little Rock about your situation to understand what you stand to possibly recover in damages.
