Uber Accident

We represented a man who was driving on Cathedral Avenue, NW in Washington, DC, looking for a parking spot. He saw three open parking spots to the right of his lane and stopped to parallel park into one of them. However, before he started to back up and while he had his brake lights and turn signal on, his vehicle was struck in the rear by another driver. The other driver was driving for Uber at the time, had an Uber passenger in his back seat, and apologized for the accident at the scene. However, the insurance company for Uber later claimed that our client caused the accident and refused to settle our client’s claim. Our client suffered a herniated disk in his back and surgery was recommended, but he decided against it. We filed suit against the other driver and, after extensive litigation, were able to settle the case prior to trial for $200,000.
