Contact a Rideshare Accident Attorney After an Uber Crash

You may know that you can seek compensation for medical expenses and lost wages after an Uber or Lyft accident, but many rideshare crash victims are unaware that they may also be able to recover payment for their physical and mental pain and suffering. 

You cannot put a dollar value on pain and suffering, so it can be difficult to determine an exact dollar value. That’s why you need a New Jersey Uber/Lyft accident attorney who knows how to calculate and prove pain and suffering damages. If you leave in the Kearny area, contact Brady Reilly & Cardoso, LLC to speak with a qualified lawyer to protect your legal rights. 

Determining the Value of Pain and Suffering Damages

Pain and Suffering Damages in a New Jersey Uber AccidentThe severity of your injuries will determine the extent of your pain and suffering. Certain injuries lead to more extreme pain, while others can contribute to significant mental anguish, stemming from the trauma of the accident and the limitations of your injuries. How do you really calculate these damages in a personal injury claim? 

You are generally able to seek compensation for pain and suffering in New Jersey when your physicians claim that your condition will be ongoing, you lost a limb or the use of a bodily function, you sustained scarring and other severe conditions. There are many factors that will be considered when our attorneys calculate your pain and suffering damages: 

  • The degree of the resulting injuries
  • The sort and nature of medical treatment required
  • The length of the recovery process
  • The prognosis for your projected condition and treatment requirements
  • The comprehensive impact of the injuries on your life

It can be a difficult task to prove how much compensation you deserve for pain and suffering. A qualified attorney will understand what types of evidence to show in order to prove your claim for damages, including pain diaries, statements from friends and loved ones, testimony from medical experts, prescriptions for mental trauma and illness following the crash, and other factors. It is common for insurance providers to routinely  contest pain and suffering compensation. That is why you need a New Jersey rideshare accident lawyer to fight for your rights.
