Rideshare services like Uber have changed the way we get from point A to Point B and back. They have also added to the number of car accidents since their inception. If you or someone you love was injured in a rideshare accident, we can help. Our Cecil County rideshare accident lawyer will take on the appropriate insurance company.
At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we will represent you if you were the rideshare driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist, or third-party motorist. Reviewing your accident with a member of our team is free. We will listen to your version of events and explain your options for recovering your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Damages You Can Recover After an Uber Accident in Cecil County
After an accident, you deserve time to focus on recovering from the physical and psychological trauma of the collision. Our Cecil County personal injury lawyer will document the value of the following damages:
- Economic damages: Past and future medical bills and income loss, loss of future earning capacity, treatment-related travel expenses, in-home medical support, and property damage or loss
- Non-economic damages: Physical disability and disfigurement, ongoing pain and suffering, mental and emotional anguish, loss of enjoyment of life
- Wrongful death damages: Funeral and burial expenses, loss of your loved one’s income, loss of their domestic support, and loss of consortium, companionship, and guidance
We carefully detail your potential compensation and work hard to make your demands as comprehensive of your losses and expenses as possible. Our goal is to ensure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
The Statute of Limitations Is an Important Part of Your Case
Filing your lawsuit on time is an important part of your case. The time you have to file your lawsuit is limited by Maryland state law. In general:
- Per Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101, you have three years from the date of the accident to pursue your personal injury lawsuit.
- According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904, you have three years from the date of your loved one’s passing to pursue wrongful death damages.
If your lawsuit is not filed on time, you could inadvertently forfeit the right to file it at all, or it will be immediately dismissed. It is never too early to get our law firm involved in your case. The sooner you do, the more time we have to ensure your lawsuit meets the applicable filing deadline.

What You Need to Know About Uber’s Insurance Coverage
Uber has insurance in place to cover the costs of an accident. Its coverage is dependent on the driver’s app status. Accordingly:
- If the Uber driver’s app was off and they caused the collision, we will pursue compensation from their private insurance coverage.
- If the Uber driver’s app was on and awaiting a ride request, we may pursue Uber’s insurance coverage in addition to the at-fault party’s coverage.
- If the Uber driver’s app was on, and they were on the way to pick up or were actively transporting a passenger, we will pursue compensation from Uber’s insurance coverage.
At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, our Uber accident lawyer will review the status of the Cecil County driver who caused your accident. We will also fight to ensure you are fairly compensated for the expenses and losses you suffered.
Leave the Settlement Negotiation Process to Our Uber Accident Attorney

- Police report
- Medical records

We will not ask you or your family to order your police report or other evidence. We take care of the details of compiling, organizing, and submitting evidence that proves your right to compensation and the value of your case.
