Ventura and Santa Barbara Uber Accident Attorneys

Approximately 100 million people worldwide use Uber regularly, and Uber gas generated more than $11 billion in net revenue last 2020. Whether you’re a passenger, another driver, or a pedestrian who has been in an accident involving an Uber driver, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

The Bamieh & De Smeth, PLC, law office’s Ventura and Santa Barbara Uber accident attorneys are devoted to holding Uber and other ridesharing companies responsible for their drivers’ negligent acts that resulted in injury to other individuals.

The Difference Between Uber Accidents and Other Car Accidents

Determining which party is at fault in an Uber accident is similar to determining fault in regular motor vehicle accidents. However, what makes Uber accidents somewhat different is how Uber’s insurance coverage will apply when injured victims pursue compensation from the negligent Uber driver. When Uber drivers injure their passengers, other motorists, and other road users, they may have a claim against the liable driver and/or Uber.

On the other hand, it could be tough to file a claim against Uber directly unless an injured victim can prove that the company itself (not the driver) somehow contributed to the accident. For instance, you may have a claim against Uber if the driver who injured you has a history of drunk driving or traffic violations that Uber knew or should’ve known about before hiring.

In most cases, however, victims injured in Uber accidents must file a claim against the driver to try and pursue financial compensation from Uber’s insurance policy.
