When you’re hurt in a rideshare accident, it can be more complicated and difficult to seek compensation for your injuries. Fortunately, a Spartanburg Uber accident attorney can help you recover financially and emotionally. 

When you take a rideshare service like Uber, you may hope by doing so you’re not risking getting injured in a car accident. Unfortunately, playing it safe may not have protected you from a severe injury. Your Uber driver may have crashed, and now you’re suffering for their actions. 

At HawkLaw, PA, we know how confusing it can be to fight back against a major company and their driver. That’s where a Spartanburg Uber accident lawyer can step in and help you recover. 

Who Pays for Spartanburg Uber Accidents?

When you’re hurt by a careless driver in Spartanburg, determining who’s responsible for your injuries may be one of your first steps. You need to identify the person to sue so you can get compensated by the right person. 

Uber accidents can be tough for accident victims because the company may avoid responsibility. They may claim their workers are independent contractors, and in many states, like South Carolina, rideshare drivers are considered contractors. That means Uber isn’t responsible if the driver injures someone in an accident. Fortunately, Spartanburg rideshare drivers are required to carry insurance that may cover your losses. 

In addition, if you were injured during a ride, Uber’s insurance may pay around $1 million for your losses. If you’re seeking that compensation, your Uber accident lawyer can help you find out how much your settlement is worth. 

Compensation for Uber Accident Victims

Unfortunately, many Uber accident victims struggle to get fairly compensated for their injuries. The insurance company is a for-profit business, and that means they may not have the passengers’ best interests in mind. 

That’s why it’s so important to find the full worth of your damages, or the losses you suffered because of the accident. That could include not just financial losses, but emotional losses, which are intangible but should still be compensated. That also includes any losses you didn’t pay for but that you still suffered through. 

Below is a short sample of the economic and non-economic damages you may suffer if you’re injured in a Spartanburg Uber accident: 

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Mental trauma
