If at any time within the first 30 days of signing with Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers you are not 100% satisfied with the quality and care of service you receive from our attorneys, we will cancel your contract at no cost so that you can seek different representation. No questions asked.
If you answered “yes” to these questions, Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers - who has been handling Uber accident cases in San Francisco since Uber began - could be just the right Uber or Lyft accident attorney team for you.
You may need more time before you are ready to sign with a lawyer for your San Francisco Uber accident. But don't wait too long. Taking too much time before making your claim can be detrimental to the strength and value of your case. But, while you are trying to decide on the right Uber law firm for you, here are three things you should consider...
Because Uber has a lot of resources and defends itself against such a high volume of accident claims, your claim will either be hard-fought or get lost in the shuffle. You need a San Francisco Uber accident expert - someone with a ton of experience with how Uber and its insurance coverage handles claims. Don't hire a lawyer who says he does "personal injury," or one who includes car accident cases in his long list of 20 "areas of specialization." You need a California attorney who focuses on Uber and Lyft accidents specifically.
The San Francisco Uber and Lyft accident attorney team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers has successfully represented clients in SF Uber accident cases since Uber launched way back in 2009. We have handled numerous Uber and Lyft accident cases. Even before the word "rideshare" ever existed, we EXCLUSIVELY handled traffic accident cases - not all of the varieties of personal injury cases most injury lawyers handle.

What's the harm in trying to work things out directly with Uber? You are smart. You are reasonable. You don't need a huge settlement. Well, this actually might be the right call if the accident was really minor and you suffered no or minimal injuries like whiplash that didn't force you into the ER. For something this small, you can just use the Uber app to resolve your claim directly with Uber, rather than enlist a San Francisco Uber accident lawyer.
But, if your Uber accident was more serious and you suffered major injuries such as a traumatic brain injury, a broken bone or any injury that requires surgery, dealing directly with Uber could lead you to settle your case for way less than you deserve. Uber wants to settle these more serious cases directly with you. They love to get these claims off their books by making fast cash payouts that totally undercut the claim. They will try to get you to settle before you do two things: 1. Get a good Uber accident attorney; and 2. Determine the long-lasting effects of your injuries.
If they can get to you before you hire a lawyer, they will likely get away with paying you a fraction of what you'd get if you hired an experienced San Francico Uber accident attorney.
Having an Attorney Will Get You More!
The Insurance Research Council found that:
People who have an attorney for their personal injury claim receive an average of 3.5 times more for their settlement than people without a lawyer.
If they can cut you a check before you find out the severity of your injuries and how they might affect you in the future, Uber cuts off your access to compensation for future expenses related to these long-term injuries such as:
Remember, the moment you sign the settlement release with Uber, your claim is over. There's no going back for more. So don't rush. In California, you have two years to resolve your personal injury claim before you have to file a lawsuit.
You are entitled by law to a fair settlement that compensates you for all provable damages that resulted from your Uber accident. But, getting a fair settlement directly from Uber is no easy feat. That’s where a 5-star rated San Francisco Uber accident lawyer can help.
One more thing to consider when looking for the best San Francisco Uber accident attorney for your case is that your case may never have to go to court. Again, California allows you two years to resolve your claim before you have to file suit.
Even though Uber loves to put up a good fight, in most Uber accident cases in San Francisco, the case is resolved by a settlement agreement before you ever have to go to court, especially with a good settlement lawyer. However, if you don't hire a lawyer, you may needlessly find yourself in a litigation battle and possibly even trial. Because without a lawyer, Uber will do one of two things: 1. Settle your claim on the cheap real quickly; 2. Wear you down by threatening to fight you all the way to court. These are both really the same tactic, because they just want you to take the quick low-ball settlement and NOT hire a lawyer.
Do yourself a favor, get a good San Francisco Uber accident lawyer on your case way before you even have to deal with Uber.
When deciding on a lawyer, be sure to ask about their Uber accident case track record, how many cases they are currently handling and how often their cases go to court. Frequently, injury lawyers try to take on more cases than they can handle. This causes them to "sit" on cases for too long, which makes it really hard to settle those cases, leaving them to be fought in court.
Don't risk that! Understand that your Uber case doesn't have to end up in court and be sure to ask any potential lawyer you are considering the right questions so they will give your Uber accident case the best chances of settling for a fair amount. Of course even when a great Uber accident lawyer works hard to settle cases, sometimes justice requires a lawsuit. The SF Uber accident team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers has a solid track record of winning cases with Uber - in and out of court.
