Are you a Greenville resident who’s been injured in a rideshare accident? You may be eligible for compensation for your losses with the help of a Greenville Uber accident attorney.

Uber drivers may be hired to drive, but that doesn’t mean they can’t crash just as easily as anyone else. Your driver might be in a hurry and they’re taking risks with your safety. Now you’re reeling in the aftermath of a car accident and wondering what your next steps should be.

You may need help from a Greenville Uber accident lawyer. If you didn’t cause the accident that hurt you, the lawyers at HawkLaw, PA can help you seek compensation for your losses. 

Liability for Greenville Uber Accidents

When you’re hurt in a Greenville Uber accident, one of your first questions may be, “Who’s responsible for my suffering?” Unfortunately, that can be difficult to determine without experienced help.

South Carolina law currently doesn’t consider Uber responsible for the actions of its drivers because considered independent contractors. You will need to seek compensation through the driver’s insurance, which should cover $1 million in related damage. 

However, if someone else caused the accident, you may need to sue the other driver, the car manufacturer, or even the government. Talk to your attorney about who could be held liable for your losses. 

Time Limits for Rideshare Accident Lawsuits

When you’re hurt in a Greenville rideshare accident, it’s important to know what to expect and how much time you have to file. Unfortunately, those time limits can vary. 

For example, if you’re hurt in a car accident, you’ll have three years to file a claim before you’re barred from recovery. However, you may have a shorter or longer time to file, depending on the type of defendant named, among other factors. Talk to your lawyer about your options for compensation and when to act based on the liable party. 

Compensation for Your Greenville Uber Accident

When you’re hurt in a rideshare accident, you may be due compensation for all your damages, or losses caused by your accident. Typically, this compensation should cover your financial and emotional losses during an accident. Your Uber accident lawyer will have the tools to calculate those losses.
