Among other Uber accident cases, Mr. Doerrer represented a recent high school graduate who was thrown out of an open top Jeep Wrangler when it was hit by an Uber driver taking a left turn in the Jeep’s path. The client suffered serious injuries, including facial injuries requiring plastic surgery, and was left with permanent scarring on her face. Right before trial, a settlement was reached in which the Uber driver’s insurance as well as the Jeep driver’s insurance contributed to a settlement in the multiple six figures. More recently, Mr. Doerrer represented a husband and wife who were Uber passengers at the time of a serious crash in Washington DC. Mr. Doerrer’s quick investigation of the incident lead to a previously unknown security video which captured the crash and demonstrated that the Uber driver was not at fault. Personal injury claims were made against the driver of the other vehicle — who ran a red light immediately prior to hitting the car being driven by an Uber driver. In ridesharing cases involving Uber drivers or Lyft drivers, various questions need to be resolved, including: 1. Who was at fault?2. Is the injured party an Uber driver, passenger, or third […]Read More
