Palm Desert is a busy area, with many locals and tourists alike utilizing Uber to go about their daily lives. While Uber can be a useful service when you need a ride, it can cause complications following an accident. Rideshare accident claims are complicated. You may find seeking compensation to be harder than expected.
If you were injured in a collision involving a rideshare vehicle, look no further for legal help. Nadrich & Cohen advocates for injured people. A Palm Desert Uber accident lawyer can file a claim and pursue the damages you need.
The Statute of Limitations Determines Your Case’s Filing Period
As you consider legal representation, we urge you to consider the state’s statute of limitations. CCP § 335.1 notes that you generally have two years to file your lawsuit. This deadline begins the moment your accident happens. If the deadline expires and you haven’t filed your lawsuit, you could lose the right to seek damages.
Legal help is available now. Don’t put off seeking representation any longer. Our team is here to lend a helping hand and meet your case’s required deadlines.

At Nadrich & Cohen, we have a no-fee guarantee. This means:
- We work on contingency.
- You pay nothing for us to start building your case.

Possible Compensation for Rideshare Accident Claimants in Palm Desert
Compensation for your rideshare accident depends on your situation. For instance, if you suffered a long-term impairment, you would likely receive more damages than someone else in the same situation who suffered minor injuries. We’ll pursue coverage that accounts for your:
- Medical bills related to the accident
- Vehicle’s damage (if you were hurt as a motorist)
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income, tips, bonuses, commissions, and contracts
- Reduced future earning capacity
You can also recoup any money you spent on necessary services, such as childcare costs. Our team will evaluate your damages and pursue every penny you’re owed.
These Factors Influence How Much You Can Recover
Many rideshare accident claimants ask us: “How much can I recover for my losses?” We tell them the same thing each time: “We can’t know your damages’ value until we evaluate your case.” There is no standard settlement value for Uber accidents in Palm Desert. Some cases settle for a few thousand dollars. Others settle for millions.
Your damages’ value will depend on:
- Your estimated recovery period
- Your missed time from work
- Whether you share fault for the accident
- The treatment you required
- The liable insurance policy’s limits
- Your overall health condition

Commonly Asked Questions About Uber Accident Cases in California
We want you to understand everything moving forward about your legal options. This allows you to make informed choices when it comes to major case-related decisions, such as accepting a settlement offer.
As such, here are some questions that we’ve commonly received from others in your situation:
Can I Sue Uber?
It depends. Uber has many protections against rideshare accident claims, but we don’t want you to worry about learning these laws and navigating the legal process on your own. We will determine the liable party and pursue damages from them.
Who Will Pay for My Losses?
Again, that answer depends on your situation. For instance, if you were hurt as a motorist, you could file a claim with the at-fault party’s liability insurance. If their insurance doesn’t fully cover your losses, you could file a claim with Uber’s insurance provider.
Let us determine who should pay for your losses. In the meantime, we want you to focus on your well-being.
What if the Insurance Company Denies My Claim?
If the insurance company denies your claim, it must give a reason why. If we need to present more evidence, we’ll do that. If we need to change negotiation tactics, we have no problem with that. If all else fails, we may consider filing a lawsuit against the negligent party.
