Many of us hop into an Uber or other rideshare vehicle without giving it a second thought. But what happens if that vehicle is involved in an accident while you’re inside? You’ll need an Uber accident lawyer to handle your case.
Taking on a major corporation like Uber isn’t easy, but with an experienced personal injury attorney by your side, you’re far more likely to receive the justice you deserve. Our injury attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience in complex litigation. Along the way, we’ve helped our clients recover over $100,000,000 in compensation.
When in an Uber, you likely sit in the backseat, unaware of what’s going on outside, maybe checking your texts or emails and relaxing. However, your mindless ride can take a turn if the driver gets into an accident. Especially if you’re injured.
If an accident occurs during your Uber ride, you should take the following steps:
If you’re injured in an Uber accident, the answer as to whose insurance policy is responsible for your injuries can be complicated. While all drivers must carry their insurance, Uber also provides insurance coverage.
When a driver picks up a passenger, Uber provides $1 million in liability coverage to cover any injuries or damages suffered in a potential accident.
If the Uber driver was not at-fault in the accident, then the other driver’s insurance may cover your injuries and damages. If it does not, Uber has a $1 million uninsured and underinsured motorist policy to cover your expenses.
These scenarios are complicated and trying to deal with Uber on your own can be intimidating. It’s hard enough to get a fair settlement from an insurance company, but it can be even more difficult – and require more evidence and negotiating – when dealing with a large corporation’s insurance company. Because of this, it’s essential to hire an experienced Uber accident lawyer who is familiar with Florida’s rideshare laws to represent you.
After being injured in an Uber accident, the stress and anxiety can feel overwhelming. Especially when dealing with the complexities of being a passenger in a rideshare vehicle, and trying to work with multiple insurance companies. Fortunately, you don’t have to face it alone. We’ll stand up to big corporations and their insurance companies to protect your interests and fight for your legal rights.
