In cases involving personal injuries and accidents, determining what your claim is worth is more than just adding up medical bills and damages to property. It is important to take into consideration the impact your injury could have on your life in the future, psychically, emotionally, and financially. When determining what your injury claim may be worth, it is important consider the following factors:

  • The potential for suffering chronic conditions, with could result in periodic relapses and require ongoing treatment;
  • The impacts health problems could have now and in the future on your ability to participate in activities and do the things you enjoy;
  • The potential for permanent scarring or disfigurement; and
  • Lasting disabilities that could affect your ability to work in your chosen field and could impact your earning potential and future savings.

All of these things and more need to be carefully considered when calculating the total amount your personal injury claim may be worth. Unfortunately, these are often the type of expenses that are either left out or underestimated when dealing with insurance companies. To get a truly accurate estimate of what your claim is worth is to contact our experienced Georgia personal injury attorneys for a free case review.

In the aftermath of an accident, injured victims often mistakenly believe that the insurance company is on their side and will help them to get the amount of compensation they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The insurer is operating a business, and like any business, their bottom line is making money. In order to accomplish this, companies often limit administrative costs by limiting the amount of time and effort spent on each claim, with the result being that offers to settle your claim may be far less than what you expected or what your case is actually worth. According to the Georgia Office of Insurance, avoid signing an insurance release accepting settlement of your accident claim before doing the following:

  • Conducting your own investigation into the costs associated with replacing or repairing any property damaged in the accident;
  • Speaking with your doctor about the prognosis for your injuries, any future treatments you may require, and any lasting effects or disabilities you may suffer;
  • Keeping a written record of all bills and statements you have received, as well as all correspondence you have had with the company and its representatives; and
  • Consulting with a legal professional before signing a release accepting a settlement amount.

You have one chance to get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. It pays to have our experienced personal injury attorneys working on your behalf and negotiating with the insurance company to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.

In the aftermath of an accidental injury, it does not take long for medical bills to come flooding in. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for these bills and other costs associated with your injuries. How do you manage these medical costs while waiting for your case to settle? You can always elect to have your bills paid through your own private insurance. If you do this, you are still free to receive compensation for these costs through your insurance claim or through a personal injury lawsuit. Your other option is to have our attorneys file a letter of protection on your behalf with your medical providers. This letter lets them know that you are involved in a lawsuit, and assures creditors that they will be paid through the proceeds of your suit or claim.

While most accident victims want to get the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries, many have concerns about actually taking their cases to court. According to statistics from Black’s Law Dictionary, in approximately 95 percent of personal injury cases, the injured party receives a settlement without ever having to step foot in a courtroom. A major reason that insurance companies are willing to settle is that a court proceeding will likely result in increased costs, such as court fees and legal expenses.

Any money saved by offering you less than what your claim is worth is cancelled out by these costs. Additional motivation for at-fault parties to settle is that if a claim amount cannot be agreed upon and the case goes to trial, a judge will then set the amount, which is again likely to involve additional costs, thereby eliminating any savings for the insurer or at fault party.

Uber has insurance for its drivers and passengers, and others hurt because of their Uber drivers. Whether the driver was at-fault or there were other circumstances involved in the wreck, you can pursue full compensation. For the best bet in getting coverage for your claim through Uber’s insurance for riders, you should connect with a Lawrenceville, GA auto accident attorney.

What Is Uber’s Policy for Insurance Coverage for Passengers?

Uber’s coverage policy is comprehensive police that caps at one million dollars, meaning that anything short of wrongful death should definitely fall under the coverage. Now coverage extends to both drivers, passengers, and victims of the wreck (caused by the Uber driver) that may be in other vehicles.

The coverage applies to property damage, as well as medical costs, and in some situations can apply toward pain and suffering, wrongful death, and various losses. There are requirements, however.

So, Uber provides insurance when the driver is on their way when waiting for a ride request with the App active, and during Uber trips. The passengers are only covered during the trip, not while they are waiting, or when the Uber driver has dropped them off already.

How Will Uber Passengers Make Their Insurance Claim?

The good news in this situation is that you being the passenger means there’s absolutely no way you’re at fault. Unless you were in some way attacking the driver, which is a completely different issue, you’re not at fault. The driver may have been distracted, or another driver could have been at fault, but you can make your claim without worrying about fault at all.

As the passenger, you’ll need to contact Uber’s support line. While it would be nice to resolve everything within the app, that’s not a reasonable expectation when you’re handling something like a car wreck. Instead, contact Uber by phone, and give an account of what happened.

Now, if you’re not entirely sure of what to do and don’t feel comfortable contacting Uber, then reach out to a local Lawrenceville auto accident attorney. They can provide insight and even take action for you. They’ll help you file a liability claim and claim for any property damage. For example, if you knew the phone broke during the wreck, you can include that in your claim.

In these cases, it’s usually easier to work with an attorney because you’re handling someone who has your best outcome in mind rather than their own best interests.

What if the Driver was the Person At-Fault?

So drivers are required by Uber to maintain collision and comprehensive insurance on their personal policies as well. That means that if your Uber driver caused the wreck, then you may need to file a claim with their insurance as well.

Even if your Uber driver was at-fault for the Lawrenceville wreck, you could still put your claim through with Uber. They will often look out for their riders, and it may alert them of the crash if the driver did not.

Can a Passenger Make an Insurance Claim?

Absolutely a passenger can file an insurance claim with Uber, but they will need proof to do so. Uber will want to see the screenshot of the active Uber ride marking the time of the ride. Then, you’ll need the police report which you may have to pay to get. Additionally, you will want to have pictures of the wreck, showing the vehicles involved.

Uber’s insurance reps will contact you for additional information about your claims, such as property damage, and injuries. But often, the biggest trouble is alerting them of the wreck if the Uber driver did not. It is complex because, oftentimes, the Uber driver, will try to avoid reporting the crash because Uber will either suspend the driver or outright dismiss them from the service. That could mean that one wreck can lose them their job or livelihood.

Should You Reach Out to a Lawrenceville, GA  Car Accident Attorney?

John B. Jackson aims to help the Uber victim’s in Lawrenceville, GA. Contacting our office might be the first step in a decent direction. Your Uber ride clearly took a wrong turn, but that doesn’t mean that you’re left picking up the pieces alone. In fact, with a law firm that handles Uber accident injuries by your side, you should recover the full compensation necessary for your medical debt and other financial obligations.

Now, reach out to John B. Jackson for guidance on filing your claim with Uber and how to declare your demand for compensation. Our attorneys will lay down a foundation for a strong case, and clearly lay out why you need the compensation you do.
