- Medical treatment costs
- Future medical care and cost of physical therapy

Although Uber offers a lot of insurance coverage, the insurers don’t always pay for large accidents claims. Uber accident claims are treated the same way as all other claims. The insurer tries to minimize damages and settle as quickly as possible.
An experienced Uber accident attorney understands the complexities involved in these types of personal injury cases. To maximize your chances of receiving full compensation, they are familiar with the process of investigating and pursuing these claims. If you have questions, contact an attorney.
