Los Angeles Uber Accident Lawyers

Ride-sharing companies have thrived in recent years, primarily because of their convenience and accessibility. Uber, as one of the industry leaders in this area, has proven to be quite popular throughout the area. In fact, many people rely on this mode of travel almost exclusively, and it is a great way to save time, beat traffic, and save on the wear and tear of a personal vehicle. However, being a passenger in such a vehicle means that you have little to no control over it in the event of an accident. While Uber drivers are providing a service, they still have an obligation to do whatever they can to keep their passengers safe. In the event that you are in an Uber accident, you need to know that you have legal rights. You deserve to be compensated. In fact, California law insists upon it. However, collecting the money that should be coming your way is often easier said that done. You need to do these four things when in an Uber accident in order to help things along.

Take Care of Your Injuries

First and foremost, you need to assess your own injuries. Assuming you are ok, take a look around you and assess the situation. You will have a concern about the driver and the other vehicle. Do what you can to help them, but make sure that you remain safe in doing so. Keep in mind that even if you do not appear injured, you still need to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident. This is because many injuries from an accident do not appear for a few days to even a week after they occurred. You do not want to wait until pain sets in before getting checked out.

It is understandable that you might worry about the expense of seeking out medical attention, particularly when you feel out of control in this situation. You were not driving your own car, nor were you a passenger in the family vehicle. You are reliant on the insurance company of another driver. This is why you will want to contact an Uber accident attorney. Such a professional is well versed in California law and they will see to it that you have the best medical care possible to treat your injuries and help with your recovery. Your lawyer will even do their best to work with each of your medical providers to get your bills deferred until you receive your financial compensation from the accident.

Make Sure the Police Are Called to the Scene

Do not let the drivers talk you out of calling the police. Even if the accident appears to be very minor, it is very important that the police are called, and that a report is generated. This is one of the most things you can do after being involved in an Uber accident. You will likely be consulting with a lawyer soon after the accident, and this report will prove invaluable to the firm in starting your settlement claim.

Take Copious Notes and Witness Statements

As soon as you are physically able to, try to jot down notes relating to the accident. Be as detailed as you can. Even if something in your mind seems insignificant at the time, write it down and let your lawyer cipher through it. You never know what details will prove to be essential in maximizing your claim. If you have access to a smartphone, you can record the scene or take pictures. Again, be as detailed as you can. Now is not the time to try to save space on your memory card. You can also voice record your notes if that is easier for you.

Contact a Lawyer and Get a Consultation

Now that you have completed the first three steps, you are ready to hand over everything to a lawyer. While you might be hesitant to seek out legal assistance, it really is the most prudent course of action in this case. There are simply too many parties involved in an accident like this for you to fight through the red tape on your own. You deserve financial compensation under California law. Your lawyer is much more equipped to get that for you than you are as an individual. Your attorney will know just who to contact and how much of a settlement you should accept in the end. This will also give you the time that you need to be sure you recover your strength.

Being in an accident like this is no laughing matter. It can certainly be a life-changing experience that nobody in their right mind would ask for. That being said, following these four basic guidelines will help your case along and get you your financial settlement much sooner. Remember that individuals fighting on their own will have a difficult getting the judgment that they are entitled to. With an Uber accident attorney on your side, you will be much better positioned in the end to come away with the money you deserve and the peace of mind you need to leave this mess behind. Remember that your recovery is the most important thing. Allow your lawyer to focus on the legal aspect of your accident case and let you focus on yourself and your family.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
