Uber Accident Lawyer Hackensack, NJ Uber Accident Lawyer Hackensack, NJ 

When Bergen County people get injured in an accident where at least one of the cars is an Uber car, they should contact an experienced Hackensack Uber accident lawyer as soon as possible.

A lawyer who handles Uber cases knows that a crash with an Uber car can be a game changer in a car accident lawsuit. There is usually much more insurance to go after if the Uber car was driving with Uber passengers or was engaged to pick up Uber passengers.

An experienced car accident lawyer in Hackensack knows to look for evidence that one of the drivers was driving for Lyft, Uber, UberX, Uber Pool, Uber Eats, Doordash or other rideshare services. That information is usually not in the police report.

Other lawyers might just look at the police report and not do the investigation to get the information that Bergen County car accident victims need to know. That lawyer might try and settle the case out early without knowing all the available insurance. An Uber accident lawyer will take the steps you need to get the information you need— and that is what you deserve.

There are hundreds of cars in Hackensack, and all over Bergen County every day that are driving for Uber. There are also hundreds of Lyft cars doing the same thing. Most of those drivers don’t know our neighborhoods and are not familiar with our roads here in Bergen County. Their job is to make money by getting as many rides as they can while here in New Jersey. They are not trained to be professional drivers. Uber lets its drivers on the road for 12 straight hours without taking a break. The federal government doesn’t let trained truck drivers drive for that much time.

When there is an Uber crash, it is often caused by an exhausted or distracted driver.

When an Uber driver is exhausted or distracted, the Uber driver can cause the car crash by following too closely, tailgating, rear-ending other cars, speeding, failing to yield, going through red lights, missing stop signs, making illegal turns, making U-Turns, crossing yellow lines, and switching lanes.

But not every crash is caused by the Uber driver.

An experienced Uber accident lawyer in Hackensack will know that the driver of the Uber car who is injured by another careless driver is also covered by Uber insurance. If the careless driver has insurance coverage that is too low to pay enough money for the pain and suffering, the Uber driver can go after Uber insurance for the rest of the money by suing for the underinsured motorist benefits. The Uber driver also will be entitled to significant coverage for the medical expenses to pay for the medical treatment from the crash.
