The Three Stages of Uber Cases
Bay Area Legal Group understands the difficulties that result from Uber injuries. So we support and lead clients along the three stages of injury claims: 1) The Accident, 2) Rehabilitation & Recovery, 3) Negotiation/Advocacy.
Stage One: The Accident
In practically every Uber accident, the passenger is involved without any fault at all. Uber passengers simply ride in a vehicle when suddenly they collide with another vehicle or object.
Ultimately, the most important step is to obtain the immediate medical attention. Sometimes, the pain is felt immediately. Other times, the adrenaline and shock mask the injuries. But in all situations, victims of a Uber accidents should promptly seek medical help at an urgent care or emergency room facility.
Stage Two: Rehabilitation & Recovery
Depending on the extent of the injuries, the rehabilitation and recovery process can be mystifying and long. Initial treating physicians can refer victims to an array of physicians or clinics to address their injuries, including: chiropractors, physiotherapists, physical therapists, neurologists, pain management clinics, etc. Bay Area Legal Group can guide clients through the treatment process to maximize rehabilitation and recovery.
Stage Three: Negotiation and Litigation Advocacy
Eventually, victims of Uber crashes should be financially compensated for their injuries. The compensation occurs either through settlement negotiations or through verdicts at trial. Each case is unique, but Bay Area Legal Group can spearhead the process to obtain the most favorable results possible for victims. Sometimes settlements are reached in the pre-litigation stage, and other times a jury decides.
