Today, ordering an Uber or a Lyft is a simple as opening the app, entering your location and intended destination and pressing enter. Long gone are the days of calling for a cab and waiting patiently for it to arrive or standing on a wet sidewalk hailing one down. When you get into that Uber, you are trusting that the Uber driver drives you safely to your destination, without issue and without danger. If the Uber driver fails to do so, or an Uber driver collides with another vehicle, you may have the right to compensation for any injuries sustained. You don’t have worry about paying medical bills for your injuries and worry about navigating the legal process alone; our team at The Law Offices of Darren T. Moore can help.
Our Bronx Uber accident lawyers will fight for your rights to obtain full and fair compensation, and if we have to, we will take your Uber accident case to court for a fair and just settlement. We’re ready to do what we need to help you recover from your injuries.
What is the Statute of Limitations for an Uber Accident Claim?
If you are a passenger in an Uber involved in a car accident, a pedestrian struck by an Uber motor vehicle or another motorist struck by an Uber vehicle, you have a specified time limit to file a personal injury claim. You have three years from the accident date in New York to file a lawsuit. Remember and this is important, if there are other vehicles involved and one of those vehicles is a municipal vehicle, e.g., an NYPD car/van, an MTA/NYCTA bus, the time limit is even shorter and more the reason to pick up your phone or send an email to the Uber accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Darren T. Moore P.C.
Our Uber accident attorneys in the Bronx recommend filing your Uber accident claim early to maximize your compensation. In addition, you and your attorney will also have more time to build your case, giving you a higher chance of victory. If you fail to file your personal injury claim within the time limits prescribed by law, you’ll be out of luck and won’t be able to recover compensation for your injuries.

- Future Medical expenses, treatment and care
- Loss of earnings

Non-economic damages, on the other hand are not so easy to quantify and they are damages that don’t have a universal cash value. From our perspective, these are the damages with the greatest value because there is no value that we can put on losing quality of life, or value that we can say is ok when it comes to someone enduring a life of pain and suffering. We will fight for #MOOREJUSTICE when it comes to all damages we will fight to recover the following non-economic damages for you:
- Pain and suffering

How Can Our Bronx Uber Accident Attorneys Help After an Uber Accident?
When you work with our team, we tell our clients that all we’ll ask of you is to focus on your recover and we’ll take on all the legal steps of your Bronx Uber collision. A few of the tasks we will take on and help you with include:
Filing No-Fault Insurance Forms
Immediately, we will file a No-Fault application for you with the applicable insurance company. This needs to be done within 30 days of the accident and this provides medical insurance which generally covers up to and including $50,000.00 in medical coverage. It will cover medical bills, lost wages, transport to and from medical appointments and also a $25 per day reimbursement for assistance at home and around the house.
Strong evidence is what makes a strong Uber accident case. We can help you document valuable evidence from the accident scene or any other evidence you may have. For example, we will gather evidence like medical records, accident reports, photos of your injuries, traffic/dash cam footage if available, and the negligent party’s contact and insurance information.
After we’ve compiled all relevant evidence, we’ll work to build your case. If you have any questions about the legal process, our Bronx Uber accident lawyers can answer them for you.
Negotiate With the Insurance Company
In the case of a Bronx Uber accident, our lawyers have extensive experience negotiating with corporate parties and know how they operate, know how to deal with them and know how to negotiate with them when the situation arises.
The insurance companies will likely at some point try dismiss your claim but we’ll stand strong in your case and defend against any false statements the Uber insurance adjuster tries to make. We’re ready to do whatever it takes to get you a full and fair settlement for the losses you’ve suffered.
Evaluate Your Losses and Injuries
If the injuries are clear from the outset, we’ll evaluate your Uber accident case for free. We always provide a free consultation for anyone who calls our office and in some cases, we can determine the value of your case. We will caution you, that is only in some cases and can be rare because it can take time, weeks, months and even years to determine the full extent of your injuries and any lawyer who tells you otherwise, is only telling you what you want to hear so that they can get you in the door. We will review your accident to determine if you qualify for a valid Uber accident case. This will allow us to gain a deeper insight into your case and answer any questions you have.
If you do have a case, we’ll tell you the damages you could recover. We can also weigh the pros and cons of your legal options, such as negotiating with the insurance adjuster or taking your case to court. Never resolve a case with the insurance company on your own where you have been injured, allow an experienced Uber accident attorney do that for you.
What Factors Determine a Bronx Uber Accident Settlement?
Our clients often want to know how much of a settlement they’re entitled to after being injured in an Uber crash, but, the truth is that there is no calculator for these injuries and no one universal settlement amount that applies to all Uber cases. As mentioned above, it can take weeks, months and even years to determine the full extent of your injuries and you don’t want to settle early for the convenience of it when you can hire an aggressive Uber accident attorney who will fight for full justice for you. Any lawyer who tells you how much your going to obtain early on in a case, without much information regarding the policies at play, the injuries involved, is only telling you what you want to hear so that they can get you to sign up. Be Very Aware!!!.
Instead, three main factors determine a settlement amount:
Level of Injury
In an Uber accident case, the injuries’ severity will significantly impact the value of the case and any potential settlement amount. The more severe the injuries are, the higher the case value and potential settlement offer will be.
This is because severe injuries often require extensive medical treatment, long recovery periods, and may result in permanent disability or disfigurement. In addition, these types of injuries can result in significant financial and emotional losses, which we’ll factor into the case value and potential settlement amount.
On the other hand, if the injuries you sustained in an Uber accident are relatively minor, the settlement offer may be lower. There is no one size fits all when it comes to Uber accident cases. Our Bronx Uber accident lawyers will take your injuries into account when determining the amount.
Another factor that affects your settlement is how many parties are responsible for your injuries. The more at-fault parties there are, the more policies at play and also the more defense attorneys and insurance companies to deal with. Where more than one party is at fault, we will file personal injury claims against all liable parties.
